This was to be expected what with a new console generation on the horizon and we’ll be looking over at the Xbox 720 with intense interest when that hits, but for right now the console failure du jour is the Nintendo 3DS’s so-called “black screen of death”. Not to worry though, Nintendo have thrown out a stock answer to the issue to calm the ruffled feathers of un3DS-ed early adopters.
“If anyone is experiencing any problems with their Nintendo 3DS console, we recommend that in the first instance they download and install the latest system update, now available online,” according to Nintendo. “If the problems still persist we recommend they contact their local Nintendo Customer Service centre to investigate the problem further.” Not the most exciting PSA and offering a fairly no-brainer solution, but it might just save some of the less tech-inclined people out there an angry trip to the supermarket.
