Nintendo 3DS Update Live Today: Web Browser & Store Access

We have been talking about some of the negatives of the Nintendo 3DS in recent times such as how its sales haven’t been as good as expected and that we are a little bit bored of it. But now we are hearing that the new update is available for people to get.

While in the next day or so a lot of attention will be on the next big static console from Nintendo it shouldn’t be passed by that the Nintendo 3DS update is live today with access to the new store and also a web browser.

If the Nintendo 3DS had launched with these features then perhaps the sales of it would have been a lot more than they expected. Personally I believe that Nintendo jumped the gun with the launch of their handheld device as the games it launched with could have been better and not all the features were enabled which are only just coming now.

A winning combination that they could have gone with would have been launching with the store available, web browser intact and with the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time in a box set. You can read more about it on the official announcement from Nintendo on this link.

What do you think of the System update? Do you agree that it should have been present when the console launched? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
