    Wondering when that big 3DS firmware update is coming? We heard it was coming November, but it sounds like Nov. 30th is the date.

    There's currently a commercial airing in the UK that shows off new features of the firmware, including the video recording. The commercial states in the fine print that "3D Video Recording update available to download from November 30th". Let's hope that's a worldwide date!

    Yay for still technically being November? :unsure:
    As late November as it's possible to be, but still November.

    I reiterate I REELY REELY hope there is some way to convert 3D movies and run them on 3DS soon

    isn't converting videos to 3d is a nightmare? you'll need to go through all the frames one by one to change them, don't you? (from what i know)

    I think they just want to convert Already-3D videos to the 3DS's format.

    Don't be so quick to dismiss this. I can't remember when Nintendo have ever implemented a DRM system into their media support. But then again, it's the first time a Nintendo device will be able to capture video, and in 3D too. we'll just have to see what format it uses as soon as the update hits.

    also, i've known this for a while now (that UK Nov.30 date). i think it was sometime last week when that ad started (read about it over at GameFAQs).

    EDIT: shiiiiieeeeeeeeet. i just finished reading that December 8 thingy. i was so hoping by then i'd have 3D recording... (i'm gonna be away for a week for work training)
