Amazing 2DS sales in the UK last week!

Quote :

2DS was comfortably the UK's best selling console last week, and that's without combining the sales of 3DS and 3DS XL.

They have basically killed off the free sharing-among-friends service in Japan due to "abuse". You can still use the global option, but you have to pay. Given the current controversy, I can't see them being in any rush to bring it over here....

Quite impressive tech demo of this eShop title.

Sorry Phlips! It sounds like it's attached photos etc. that are the real concern. I can understand Nintendo's worry - they are he automatic reference for "BY CHILDREN" in the media, so if the tabloids say that "CHILDREN HAVE BEEN USING THEIR NINTENDOS TO SEND AND RECEIVE FILTH FROM PAEDOS" they'll never hear the end of it. But, as usual, this is the parents' fault for not guiding them on what they should/shouldn't be doing on the internet.

Via KOTAKU:

Quote :

On October 31, Nintendo suddenly announced it was ending its SwapNote service for the 3DS. Nintendo said SwapNote had been "actively misused" to transmit "offensive material" among system users, including minors. Now we know how offensive and unsettling some of that material was.

Japanese newspaper Mainichi reports that charges for child pornography have also been filed against another man, aged 44, who had allegedly two girls—then aged 11 to 12—send nude photos through SwapNote, or "Itsu no Ma ni Koukan Nikki" (いつの間に交換日記) as it's called in Japan. This man, a resident of Aichi Prefecture, has allegedly confessed to the acts.

So there you go. Nintendo's system being associated with this would not be a good look.

I've noticed that Pokemon X/Y no longer has the "lets be friends!" option when battling randoms online either.

3DS Direct on the 13th.  Focusses on previously announced 3DS games, to be released in Q1.  Yoshi's New Island to suddenly look good?

If the latter happens, I will be very impressed. Has there been a Nintendo series with worse diminishing returns than Yoshi's Island?

Fully expecting 3DS Miiverse to be announced.

Nope. That is unlikely. Sad

Could be (he said in an optimistic tone) as wasn't the 3DS Miiverse meant to be out by the end of the year?

Why? Because of the "already announced" focus?

Miiverse would still fall into that bracket though, wouldn't it?

The Goomba is the best character in the ND. (Although he has now been upstaged by pocket red Pikmin and desk Bulborb.)

EDIT: They're combining Wii U and 3DS functionality to bring you... a shared eShop balance.

EDITEDIT: Just teasing, the same update will contain Miiverse functionality!

Agreed. I'm not interested in football or Animal Crossing Plaza, although the eShop stuff did look good.

Oh, and if the person who starts the Nintendo Pocket Football Club thread doesn't call it "Nintendo Pocketo Football Crub", I will upset.

Ah well, at least that ending helped redeem the boring parts. A shame I don't have a Wii U, is the 3ds Mario World as fun as that trailer for the Wii U version looked?

I'm normally not one for laughing at the Japanese accent but it really sounded like he was calling it Football Crap.
So for 3DS news, it basically amounted to some games I'm not fused about, and Zelda and Bravely Default which I already knew I was getting. Then some great Mario stuff which blew all the the 3DS gubbins out of the water.

Wow. Nothing on Kirby 3D, YNI, Monster Hunter 4, Mario Golf World Tour... I thought this was going to be about next quarter's 3DS games? Is this Nintendo's way of saying there will be none? Because that's fine - my 3DS has been spoiled recently. But you didn't need a Direct to say that!

I guess a lot of people will be happy about 3DS Miiverse though. Meh.

The 3DS one is fun indeed, but it doesn't have the turnaround of ideas that galaxy had and which this looks like it's going to have.

I don't even think it was next quarter, just the really immediate future.

Well they were certainly plugging the rest of this year. I'm guessing that we'll get a proper Q1 Direct some time in December.

NO.  But them, I'm one of the game's bigger detractors.  It's good, just not 3D Mario good.  Or SMW good.  Or even NSMBU good.

I'm hoping the miiverse is same on both systems, so i can talk about wii u games on my 3ds and vice versa. Also I was hoping for something on monster hunter 4 seeing as Korea are now getting it.
