I have had extensive problems with my 3ds, and I treat it like the Kings own off spring. The problems have been black screen of death on system menus, , SYStem Lock ups just after playing DSi games and more. It's been back to Nintendo repairs more than at my homw, and I got it day one. I'm looking for a list a troubles others are having, with thier, along this line. I'm a Die Hard DSi fan but this system has me frustrated. PS, no I did not have the problem related to street pass and removing battery without being plugged in... YET.
