Epic conspiracy to slow down our 3DSs and take our money or just Nintendo incompetence. You decide.

    actually they do... you are unable to play new games or use online services... so you are stuck to very limited stuff, but like i said in previous post, this are no news and its just the same story as a new iphone or new windows etc...

    Stay noided Nintendo Community, I'll bet Obama is against the low sales of the Wii U. I mean, does Obama own a Wii U? No? Exactly.

    I don't think it's Nintendo's conspiracy or that the system gets worse with every subsequent update - the system was shite out of the box because Nintendo's out of touch with reality and if anything, the updates added some functionality that should've been there since Day 1. You didn't realize that initially because it was brand new and shiny, but the novelty quickly wore off and what was left was a system that's half a decade behind the times. ;O;

    Well this practice is employed mainly by Apple to force upgrades.

    Hardware gets outdated incredibly fast by design due to planned obsoleteness - it's not a matter of coding stuff specifically to work poorly on old devices, it's a matter of using technology that has a foreseeable life span Day 1 and knowing that software will outpace the hardware quickly.

    Well, it's been proven that Apple do this and it doesn't break any laws, so it's possible but I doubt it, they could have just made the new 3DS have a different cart and stop making 3DS games altogether.

    Jesus Christ, Apple's not doing it, nobody's doing it. Software gets more complex exponentially, it's the fluid component, wheras hardware does not - what you buy is what you get. Obviously at some point software goes beyond the point where there hardware can handle it - this is natural and to be expected. Due to the fact that iOS is a unified platform all across the board, old hardware eventually becomes obsolete and cannot run the new and improved system with more kinks and gadgets to it - there's nothing weird in that. You can't run Windows 8.1 on a 386 PC either, but that doesn't mean that Microsoft specifically designs OS'es to make PC's obsolete - it just means that newer iterations of their system have a new bar of system requirements.

    It was actually proven that Apple were doing it on purpose.

    *Shakes head* By whom, Captain Crunch in association with the Planeteers? No, they're just coding new iOS revisions with their new handsets in mind. Since the new handsets are usually beefier, they become the de facto par and old devices fall behind technologically. If you interpret that as "doing it on purpose" then yes, Apple releases new products on purpose.

    Moved it in the correct section of the forum since it's all unproven bullshit.
