You take that back commie
Yea, this was pretty obvious it was up and coming. RIP Original 3ds
I mean, you are right.
Nintendo is really hard to follow because they do things without explaining it. My posts was just as much speculation as your post.
Maybe it's cost of parts? Maybe cost of labor? The NES really didn't have that many revisions compared to the 3DS. Like there wasn't a newNES with upgrade parts, there was just NES and some fucked up top loading NES...with the same parts...2NES
Pretty sure they stopped offering repairs for the original 3DS long ago.
This isn't new news to me.
Well I just have to hope that I don't fuck up my 3ds then. It hasn't broken yet and I've dropped it over 9000 times so I'm probably good
to those who replied me with things like "Otherwise we would still be playing GameBoy Color" (sorry, but like six persons did it and makes me lazy quote you all xD), what I found wrong here is this:
I mean, I am not hopping a "fix it yourself" section, but I think that the "recomendation" was not necessary
ok shitposting aside, ninty dont offer repairs for us mexicans (and if they do they're expensive) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
A NES is made out of generic, non-SMD electronic parts (outside of the combo cpu+sound generator, the gpu, the card slot, and the controller sockets; but they all had have clones made and can still be bought online for cheap) AND can actually be repaired, due to those parts all being replaceable on their own
You can replace the screens/touch panel (with caveats) of your Wii or newer Nintendo product, but brick your operating system or burn out the CPU and the "repair" is a new motherboard, since they are matched parts due to encryption, you aren't going to reflash it without a nand backup they don't have or xorpads they don't have, and it's not worth the time/effort/risk of replacing BGAs
BTW, the Famicom was made and "actively" sold until 2003, if your next question would have been "why would they have stocked NES parts to cover through 2007"
I think there's something pretty much everyone is overlooking - the 3D top screen is used in no other device, so it's probably hard to source and/or expensive. For all we know, those manufacturers are focusing on the XL sized screens for the n3DSXLs. This could be why there are only a very limited amount of standard size n3DS units, and why they introduced the n2DSXL - a unit with a much easier to source top screen.
We already had $99 closeouts- they're called the Black Friday small n3DS sale.
Well.. I don't think this effects people who has homebrew on it, or have Custom Filmware on the 3ds. You can't even take it to Nintendo.
nothing works for real, comrade.
THAT is the real size of the property
Those were 'specials.' A 'closeout' is when something is sold for a bargain price to make it go away for good, and there's not going to be any stock replacing it.
Eh that kinda sucks, but I can see why. Well, I have a low firmware O3DS if anyone needs to buy a working one
let me just report you for selling stuff outside the trading area
Support (via game releases) and support (via repairs) are two different things.
Yes. I can buy a latest game, accidently break my 3DS, and I'm left with a cartridge, now useless. Which is what they want - having to buy a NEW 3DS.
They want as much of your money as possible like every other business out there (shocker), but IMO a 3DS is pretty hard to break in the first place.
Capitalism is human nature. Even in communist dictatorships, free markets emerge.

Yeah, you're right. My NDS is still working fine without a repair since 2007! And I kinda understand why they wanted to drop O3DS so soon and sell N3DSs, since they made an enormous discount in O3DS's early days... But can't help feeling sad about it. They never stopped services so soon for such successful devices.
The 3DS and all of its games won't magically disappear off the face of the planet just because Nintendo discontinued it, there's millions of units in the wild and thousands of games to choose from. Six years is ample support, it's about time to move on. There will always be people who can't afford next gens, that shouldn't be a reason to stall when the 3DS release schedule has already dried up and the "successor" is out. The Switch needs all the support it can get, the 3DS will do fine without any.
