I turned on my 3DS and received a notification from Nintendo about the 2.0.0-2U update. It said the update will be released in the evening, Pacific Time. Since it's 10:30 Pacific Time right now, is it possible this update will be available in the next 2 hours or so?

Pacific time if I'm not wrong, is UTC - 8 right?

And ridge racer gameplay disruptions? What the~
together with automatic system updates...

I don't think so. From what I remember reading somewhere, Nintendo said the "evening" of June 6th. So I'm guessing we (US Pacific Time) will have to wait another 19 hours or so.

This is off topic but...

Is there a difference between pacific time and pacific standard time?

I am a bit peeved about the Ridge Racer bug as well. You would think they would have fixed the bug with all the postponements. : sighs:Oh well it will be fixed "later this month". I'll stick with DoA:D and White for now.

Also, just tried to download the update and 3DS said it was up-to-date. Im assuming this will be like the Wii Shop where the update won't be pushed out until 9 PST. That's about 12 minutes for me. Sadly, I'll be out so I won't get it until I get home around 2 unless I can snag a unprotected wifi connection.

"Pacific Time" is the time in the US west coast time zone. It refers to either "Pacific Standard Time" (UTC-8) or "Pacific Daylight Time" (UTC-7), depending on which is active. Currently that is PDT.

Has anyone tried updating recently? It's annoying me because they said it would be available "this evening," but it's already 8:40 PM Mountain Time. I'm very curious if it breaks compatibility with my acekard or not.

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
