Is Your Nintendo 3DS Freezing? Send it to Nintendo, They’ll Figure Something Out

Written on March 29, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

13 persons

Don't know what to do with your Nintendo 3DS if you experience any system freezes? Neither does Nintendo! That's why they're asking you to return it to them.

It’s been barely a week since the Nintendo 3DS rolled into North American and other non-Japanese shores, and several gamers have already been experiencing system freezes on the console. These system freezes entail in either a blank white or black screen, and an inability to turn the power off unless you remove the batteries.

Nintendo has already issued a statement at Nintendo.com’s Troubleshooting page, advising Nintendo 3DS owners with similar malfunctions to return their consoles to Nintendo for repair (or more likely a replacement).

Nintendo America has yet to share a word regarding the matter, while Nintendo UK advises 3DS owners to try the latest system update first before contacting the Nintendo Customer Service Center. There are no reports of any system errors from Nintendo 3DS owners in Japan, so it looks like something went wrong when they were making the international edition of the handheld.

Hit the break to check out how the system freeze looks like.

Nintendo 3DS Raw Materials Just Cost $100, Have We Been Robbed?

Written on March 26, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Is Nintendo robbing the consumers from a possibly cheaper Nintendo 3DS? Or is there more to the hardware than meets the eye?

Nintendo has always provided their consumers with top-notch, relatively cheap products that usually leave us smiling. But an analysis from UBM TechInsights may put things in perspective for a moment, as they unveiled that Nintendo 3DS’ raw components cost roughly $101 per unit. The Nintendo 3DS unit currently has a retail price of $250, around 150% more than what it is made. Has Nintendo robbed its consumers?

Well, there’s more to the tale than the raw figures. The makings of a Nintendo 3DS doesn’t only comprise of its raw materials. Beyond its bits and pieces, money has to be shelled out for marketing, research, development costs, labor, packaging and distribution. And even though the raw goods sound cheap, the rest definitely isn’t. That’s why the Nintendo 3DS is priced that way.

After Nintendo 3DS and Pokemon Black and White, What Happens to the Nintendo Wii?

Written on March 12, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

The Nintendo Wii is not going down without a fight, but Nintendo admits it's a little occupied with the nintendo 3DS and Pokemon Black and White.

Currently not satisfied about the game releases on the Nintendo Wii? Well you’re not alone. Perhaps the entire Wii-population is already wondering if the console still got some juice left in its lifespan as Nintendo shifts their focus to “two big balls” they’re juggling, the Nintendo 3DS and Pokemon Black and White. For the past couple of months, we’ve seen titles from the “mmm.. okay..” to the “screw this I don’t need another party titled game,” which makes us wonder if Nintendo still cares about their revolutionary console.

“There’s content coming, and we’ll be sharing more, certainly, in the weeks ahead,” said Nintendo President, Reggie Fils-Aime. Well, there’s your answer. The console’s still got some tricks under its sleeve before E3 and “more news” will be revealed during the expo this June. And with the Legend of Zelda celebrating its 25th anniversary, we’re quite comfortable saying that they won’t leave the Nintendo Wii out of the loop. Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, anyone?

Hit the break to see the IGN interview with Nintendo President, Reggie Fils-Aime.
