    Who's going to miss that 30 cents anyway, though?

    It seemed questionable to me at first as well, but it's pretty harmless. I mean, what are you going to be missing out on? A piece of candy from a gumball machine?

    We should take this as a blessing and a message from Nintendo to not use their terrible internet browser and use anything else.

    I hope they have their Vitas and Gamepads handy, then.

    Thanks for reinforcing my point. Even among game consoles (which all have **** browsers) the 3DS is the lowest.

    well there are some...interesting 3d images that can only be viewed via the qr code on the 3ds brower, but not enough to actually use the damn thing. The Vita's is pretty good for a console tbh. Quick, and fluid.

    Huh, has it been confirmed that the New 3DS XL won't have customizable covers like the regular New 3DS? I was watching a video that states that the XL version won't be having the Covers apparently, so I was just wondering, because if so that's kind of lame. On the other hand, it could make the XL version a tad bit more sturdy, as being able to remove the covers worries me to a degree, but hey, I'm probably being paranoid.

    Two PSA's: Slowking does NOT evolve from Slowbro, rather, it requires a King's Rock to be traded on Slowpoke rather then Slowbro. Secondly, Primal Dialga has no relation to Primal Kyogre and Groudon, as Primal Dialga's Japanese name is Dark Dialga while Primal Kyogre and Groudon's Japanese names remain Primal. Also, Primal Dialga is stated to LOSE power as opposed to gain it like Kyogre and Groudon do, and Primal Dialga would be better described as a Feral state of Dialga. That is all.

    As a disclaimer, I wasn't mocking it. If I was, I wouldn't of mentioned the gamepad with it. I luv my Wii U.

    I thought the Wii was pretty good. Only used it for a few months, but it never froze on me. But then again, I only checked sites like here, Cheat Code Central, and Joystiq at the time. The PS3 one also isn't bad, but constantly freezes when there are plenty of images on screen at once. Used to visit sites that have HQ images of anime and stuff that I can use as my XMB theme, and would always freeze after several pages. Vita is good too, but NEVER VISIT THIS SITE. I don't know why, but my Vita always stops loading on the main forum page. Won't let me click on any threads.

    The expanded 3D sweet spot should be advertised greatly. People say the 3D in Kid Icarus Uprising is great, but I can never find the best angle. KHDDD too. Does the current XL improve the 3D? It may be the small screen, but my head and eyes hurt after about 10 minutes of continuous 3D use.

    And before you know it it costs a quarter to open the eshop, a nickel to turn on wifi, and 50 cents just to play a game with an additional paywall every 2 hours under the guise of encouraging people to put down the game and to go outside.

    What I've learned from gaming from the last few year: Whining and complaining like little babies will actually make a DIFFERENCE. Those who say "Nah, that's not gonna happen", and sit back are the ones doing damage. Just look at the Xbox. If people didn't whine and complain about DRM, that thing would be selling less than the Wii U today. And look at the launch 3DS. If people weren't complaining about how expensive it was, and just how small the library was, it would be doing half as well as it's doing today.

    I think I'm going to hold off on buying the 'New 3DS' for a few years, just to make sure they aren't going to release another handheld console 3 years down the road.

    Edit: seems JPN only for now. I guess they'll also announce this for the US and the rest of the world when the New 3DS/XL gets announced worldwide?
    Just so the thread is aware, it's a legal requirement due to COPPA. The fee just exists to verify that you've got a credit card, since the people who shouldn't be looking at this sort of thing wouldn't have one.

    The Internet is available without paying the fee, just not the porn and such.

    Nintendo has done this before; Wii U NNID accounts for minors require a 50 cent credit card charge.

    The hardware itself is covered by a separate division, while the software can draw upon more of the resources available to the Wii U instead of requiring its own. It's unclear atm how much they're going to support the n3DS with exclusive content, but I wouldn't be surprised if it consisted of more Wii ports or games based on Wii U software.

    That exists anyway due to one being a handheld and one being a console. The end result will be similar to what it is now, but for development purposes, it gives Nintendo more freedom to allocate resources once they can get their team behind a single development environment (and it probably helps third parties to get the n3DS compatible with Unity, if they go for that), which makes their development more efficient and helps them avoid software droughts.

    As you've worded this, this should never be the lesson you take away from anything. Ever.

    Is that really the conclusion you've come to, especially on the point of the latter? That Nintendo wouldn't have eventually dropped the price (as they have eventually on nearly every hardware they've ever released) and even more incredibly, they wouldn't have released new software if people hadn't complained?

    Nintendo trying to please conservative parents and make some money while doing nothing at the same type. That's so typical of them, i'm surprised that you guys are surprised.

    Except for how it was just explained quite clearly that it doesn't originate with Nintendo and in fact it's a legal requirement.

    But... they do. How else would you have them verify ownership (or at least authorized use of) a credit card?

    No, they don't. They have to verify the person's age, not the credit card. Of course they can use the credit card excuse but that's not the only way.
    Anyway, that's irrelevant to me, i just found it funny that they are going to earn money from people who watch porn in the 3ds.

    Does anyone really put in their real DOB in their videogames? Kids lie about their age on the Internet all the time. You watch to watch this trailer of an M-rated game? Please put in your day of birth. Okay, 11/7/1941. Hehehehehe

    Sorry if I'm being annoying Lol.
    I read on the official nintendo help site that in system transfers, both 3ds need to have the same reigon settings, and that settings can not be changed to countries outside of the purchased area. I bought my current 3ds in isreal, but my eshop account currency is in pounds, meaning it must be UK. I also have a 32gb sd card on my 3ds, as I have ALOT of downloaded games and extra data.
    This means my theoretical transfer process would be:
    1. Buy Uk New 3ds, 32Gb micro sd and micro sd pc adapter.
    2. Set reigon settings on new 3ds to match settings on source system.
    3. Make sure all data (games, photos, apps, streetpass) is saved on sd card, if not move to sd card.
    4. Preform System Transfer from source current 3ds to target new 3ds, while selecting "delete data on target system"
    5. After system transfer is complete, transfer data from current sd to micro sd via computer
    6. Insert micro sd to new 3ds.
    Would this process ensure that I lose no data whatsoever, and not have to redownload anything? If not, does anyone have any corrections?
    Thanks in advance!
    Edit:
    aaaand I just saw this-
    " Game data can be transferred from a previous 3DS system to a New Nintendo 3DS, either manually or wirelessly, though data from New Nintendo 3DS systems can't be transferred to older systems."
