The Nintendo 3DS Has the “Black Screen of Death”
I have yet to experience any technical issues with the 3DS itself (Madden is another story), and I’ve spent about 20 hours with it so far. As you would expect, though, that’s not how everyone’s experience has gone so far. Folks at NeoGAF have reported a strange, inexplicable error popping up for some folks while they play a variety of titles. The error (pictured above, courtesy of NeoGAF poster Taku) ha been mentioned by forum posters as occurring during Super Street Fighter IV 3D, Ghost Recon Shadow Wars and Super Monkey Ball 3D, so it’s probably just a general error.
Eurogamer got a statement from Nintendo about it, and it went like this: “If anyone is experiencing any problems with their Nintendo 3DS console, we recommend that in the first instance they download and install the latest system update, now available online.” OK, then. That is a good idea, really, because the update’ll also let you watch that OK Go video that has all the dogs in it in 3D!
