    Well, I'm sure we all are tired of *cough* stability *cough* updates by now. I sure am. Let's make a list of features they should add that actually add functionality to the 3DS as opposed to enhancing stability to the point of being able to make a super-stable 3D shack!

    Software:
    • Region-free (at least for cartridges)
    • Free custom themes (I mean, the PSP did have those, even without CFW)
    • Taking screenshots in all games / taking screenshots locally
    • Adding more than 3 WiFi connections (I mean, the PSP had this....)
    • Acting as a controller for the Switch
    • Improve 3DS Settings UI
    • Improve NNID system
    • Remove 100 friends limit
    • Remove 300 titles limit
    • Remove 100 themes limit
    • Allow for more than 1 account per system
    Other:
    • Include a USB charging cable
    • Sell a USB charging cable

    Why they don't have Region Free is beyond me.
    The Theme Shop won't go, though. It's a money source for Ninty.

    - The ability to save screenshots locally for all games rather than going through Miiverse, which only supports some games and requires an Internet connection.
    - Allowing more than 3 Wi-Fi hotspots to be saved.
    - Having a "Switch Controller" feature that lets the 3DS be paired with the Nintendo Switch and act as an extra JoyCon.

    Could be. Hopefully it's like the PS4's Share button and can both take screenshots and record gameplay footage. Though given Nintendo's history of making copyright claims against YouTube videos that have their game music in the background, if they ever added screen recording it probably won't have any audio, or just not record the music stream.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I would love to see it. I bet you 2 cents that it won't happened. Why Nintendo didn't do that is beyond me as well. Look at PS3 and PS4.. Nintendo refused to do that. Sighing.

    I know, right? My video about Loadiine is being monetized by Nintendo cuz it uses some footage of Paper Mario :D

    Even after I removed the sound, the "visual content" still is claimed by them x.x

    It's funny. They're making money (welp 2 cents maybe) off Loadiine x.x

    * include a USB cable with new units.
    * officially sell USB cables for older units.
    * design new units with more rounded corners for far better ergonomics (PSP / Vita hardware designers have a clue)
    * make countless small changes to 3DS Settings screens to make usability better

    So nintendo can get you to pay for games you already have in a different country because you have a different region 3ds. Or you need to buy a different region 3ds to play another region game.

    It is all about money $$$$$

    - region free cartridges
    - having an "universal" NNID/system network that doesn't suck (I can't imagine owning a Wii U for this reason as well)
    - rounding off corners/rough edges
    - not releasing fifty limited edition consoles a year
    - official usb charging cables (yes, I can get one at the local chinese mall for cheap, but I don't wanna go and have to brave the crowds)
    - better Nintendo online store service - I had to recently cancel an order, and I couldn't find a way to do that online! I had to phone them up to do so...(I had the number on my phone from a parental control unlock I had to do).

    This would probably be better handled as a separate (free) eShop app, rather than a firmware feature. I mean, the Smash Controller feature isn't a part of the firmware; you need to download the app (or Smash; I forget whether it's a free app or part of Smash3DS).

    As for everyone saying "USB charging cable", "redesign the ergonomics of the system", and stuff like that, that's kind of beyond the scope of this thread, which is about firmware updates adding features we would like to see, instead of just squashing exploits. You can't download a charger, and unless the 3DS is made of nanomachines it's not going to change shape physically due to an update.

    Yes, I meant updates, but oh well, might as well add the others. Not like an official USB charger isn't nice.

    Both. You can download an app for $0.99 or select it in the game's menu.
