    I want to know if the NNID will allow you to recover games on another console in the event something happened to your 3DS. Let's say it gets broken or something. Will I be able to recover my account on the new 3DS and get my games and ambassador stuff or am I still fvcked?

    Now the question is, will the games be linked to the accounts instead of the consoles? Cause if it isn't, I will not see it as much of an improvement.

    read my post on the last page.


    EDIT
    Looks like everyone is asking this, Should be added to the front page that content is still tied to the system, not the nnid.

    The Vita does it, I know they aren't in the same league, and to be honest I am not sure of the performance it has on the Vita, but I think it's fair the 3DS should get a shot at more apps like skype. Nintendo is so against socialization on their platforms, it annoys the fuck out of me.

    It's pretty decent on Vita. Best thing about it is that you can Skype and play games at the same time.

    That's pretty damn awesome. Vita is capable of so much yet it seems Sony doesn't give a damn, it cares more about its console, Nintendo is the total damn opposite. They only care about their systems if they're making money off of it, and screw those who bought the systems over when they haven't earned enough.

    Corporations really piss me off.

    If you consider transferring "customizations" between versions "play", then I'm sorry, but that's pretty sad. My definition of cross version play would be, you know, playing on a 3DS against someone on a WiiU.

    Wow, you people are just not happy about anything, are you. They do something good, and you all STILL rag on them. Even TwinRetro...if that's not entitlement, I'd don't know what is.

    Be happy we're getting it at all. Especially with people, you know, having complained all last gen that they just wanted a dedicated gaming device, not a multi-function supercomputer system.

    Me, I'm just excited to finally get Miiverse on 3DS. Better late than never.

    this is one step in the right direction. now all they need to do is make it where i buy retro games on one system i get it on the other too. i'm tired of buying my retro games twice??? and it's something that could be easily fixed by nintendo. i bought both platforms damn it and the old retro games (that i usually own already on the original system in the closet) give your diehard fans a little break wtf lol..this is great news though

    I have £5 left over from buying a £25 card from buying phoenix wright, So since i also own a wii-u, i can buy from the bunch of awesome Snes games priced at around £5 on that, since there is nothing i want for on the 3DS for that price.

    Also slightly off topic, where can i watch the full announcement? Is it still on the main nintendo site? coz i couldnt find it just now.

    I think the main problem people have with the update isn't the NNID update, but instead the limits it still has compared to the other major console makers (=competitors). A dedicated handheld console like the 3DS is a fantastic piece of electronics as a dedicated gaming device, but if you're going more and more into digital, it's kinda hard to see why the stuff can't be backed up from an alternative source i.e. the internet.

    Sony can do it, Microsoft can do it, Steam can do it, pretty much every other digital store can do it. Now if only Nintendo would do it too. Not too much to ask is it? :)

    ps. Not directed at you GreatZimkogway, but mentioning it still here:
    Saying they've only started doing online stuff seriously is wrong in a way. While the Wii lacked a lot compared to current gen (and even previous gen competitors), it still had some online functions and Nintendo R&D will have had to do some work in the area.
