I went onto the eShop this morning. And guess what. "Update your 3DS" confronted me. Upon downloading this update, (2.1.0-3E) I find that eShop price fluctuations when you change your 3DS language are no longer available - i.e UK=20% tax, change to French, tax is less - and locks it, so you can't access the eShop in another language or use $ or Euros as a currency. OK, fair enough. Also, battery life has dropped significantly. And charging times have lengthened. This is definite. Nintendo have done something utterly stupid with the battery life, and I can't think as to what is causing it. Unless Nintendo have actually placed this huge power eating bug inside the 3DS for their grand plans to launch 3DS Lite with a better battery (No, this won't happen- just me and my creative license). Overall system stability is Nintendo codeword for "bollocks". Nothing has changed; in fact, upon rising my 3DS from its sleep mode, the screen would not respond and I had to hold down the power button for it to shut down an restart. That worked. This isn't an isolated case. I know several people, (I believe the count is "7") who actually possess 3DSes on System Menu 2.1.0-3E, and every single one has reported a red battery life notification light much earlier than if they were using System Menu 2.0/1.1. Furthermore, one of these seven experienced a freeze in Ridge Racer directly after the update, not even getting past the Single Player menu. Wonderous. Frankly, I am fed up with Nintendo releasing system updates which don't do what they say on the tin. Sort it out, Nintendo. You've had three goes at it so far, and although the 3DS is amazing, you've got to admit that you can't fix certain errors, or be less ambiguous. "Increasing System Stability" can be acheived by propping the said console on a table leg, thank you very much. Warning: Spoilers inside!
