Firmware update! SwapNote [Nintendo 3DS Messaging System]

[12/5/11] Latest Update below

 

About the Firmware uodate on the 8th of December for all you fans!

According to Nintendo 3DS Blog & News, here is a list of all the updates:

 

  • The 3D video recording and stop-motion animation capabilities.
  • Improved QR code functionality.
  • The ability to transfer game files from 3DS to 3DS.
  • New content for Mii Plaza including new puzzles and an extra dungeon for Find Mii.
  • An expanded eShop with demos, ‘Download Codes’ support, and the ability to save payment informtaion.
  • The ability to download software while the 3DS is in Sleep Mode.
  • Nintendo Zone will be automatically added to your 3DS.
  • SwapNote (Which will come later).

 

 

Happy Updating!

And a very Merry Christmas!

 

[12/7/11]

 

!-UPDATED-!

 

Thank you to NOA_TECH_JANE for allowing this post to stay up!

 

So the Update went live the 6th and now is fully functional and available to the public.

There have been issues for me though. I have revieved Nintendo Zone as well but it lags the menu up when I scroll past it, wonder what that is, and anybody else have that problem?

 

SWAPNOTE! NINTENDO 3DS MESSAGING SYSTEM!

 

A few months ago (October I believe) Reggie Fils-Aime stated that SwapNote would be coming soon to Nintendo 3DS. This was said to be the "Messaging" system 3DS owners were waiting for. There was pictochat back on previous Nintendo handhelds, but nothing close to that was on the Nintendo 3DS.

 

So, now we wait for SwapNote to come out. I'm guessing it will be here on Thursday, December 8th (original update "maximum" wait time). Which is tomorrow if you are viewing this the 7th. The reason why is becaus I think it will be here with new demos, videos, and other things for eShop.

 

Note: SwapNote is not "type-to-message", from the pictures and video from Nintendo Video (on the Nintendo Wii system), it looks like a drawing based message system, but it does hold the option to recorde your voice.

 

 

Happy Updating! (Again)

And a very Merry Christmas! (AGAIN!)

 

P.S. For anyone wondering if you could download movies to the Nintendo 3DS via .avi format. DON'T try! Fair warning! You cannot whatch movies on it! (Yet )

Re: Firmware update! Dec. 8th [NEWS]

basically a download code works the same way as the PSN and Xbox Live codes work, you enter them and you get the content the code was supposed to unlock.

Re: Firmware update! Dec. 8th [NEWS]

I've been hearing that we'll get demos for both retail and download titles.  I've also been hearing that the demos can only be played only a certain number of times before they expire (no doubt to convince you to buy the game and not play the demo forever)

Guys, you do remember that this is a tech-support forum site, right? It's meant so that people can get help with their Nintendo games, consoles, and accessories that are not functioning properly or are broken. Please stay on-topic within the forum guidelines.

While it is very convienent to know what will be in an upcoming update, NIGHTFIRE5 is right: these forums are for technical problems.

Tech-related or not, this still counts as discussion, as there is no actual issue described.

Re: Firmware update! Dec. 8th [NEWS]

Hey folks,

 

I wanted to jump in here and say it's OK to get excited and talk about this. It's true that we don't usually encourage speculation on upcoming products, events, launches, etc.

 

This is a good example of a topic that kind of falls into both camps of tech help in existing stuff vs. future stuff, so it's allowable.

 

Asking that you try not to stray too far off topic, though.

 

Cheers!

Re: Firmware update! Dec. 8th [NEWS]

Nah, I think it's just some technical inner-machanical thingy or other that helps it recognize it more or stabalizes it or something. Maybe to help it recognize bigger QR codes, since PushMo has a BIG QR Code to try and capture. Stuff like that.

Re: Firmware update! Dec. 8th [NEWS]

The QR Code update is actually something completely different than what you are thinking. If you press R or L on the main menu then it will bring you to the camera shortcut. When you are there, a little checkered box icon should be on the bottom left or in that general area. When you use this you can use QR Codes like the ones that are on magazines, cereal boxes, etc. It is like a link to a site.

Re: Firmware update! Dec. 8th [NEWS]

I know Nintendo did say December 8, but I've noticed something that makes me think it might be a little earlier. You know how one of the features is "expanded eShop, including demos"? Well, if you check the Nintendo eShop right now, it will say it's undergoing maintenance. Sure, it could be something else, but this is the most likely explenation, and maintenance usually doesn't take 2 days. So who's with me saying that the System Update is coming a little early?

Re: Firmware update! Dec. 8th [NEWS]

I haven't checked the eshop since Thursday, but now I'll have to try it. Anyway, in the official Nintendo news update about the update, it says that the update will be here by December 8th. That means that we will recieve the update on or before December 8th. You can view this here: http://www.nintendo.com/corp/nintendo3ds/news/

 

Here is the text:

Nintendo 3DS System Update Information

November 28,2011

 

The upcoming Nintendo 3DS system update is in the final stages of internal testing and will be available by December 8. We will provide an additional update once the system update is officially available.

 

This system update includes the following features:

  • 3D video recording via the Nintendo 3DS Camera
  • New game content in StreetPass™ Mii Plaza™, including Find Mii II
  • Transfer of downloaded software and data between Nintendo 3DS systems
  •  

     

    This system update is free of charge. To learn how to perform a system update, click here.


Also, while I was just now reading it (I have read it several times), I noticed that it says that there will be "an additional update once the system update is officially available." What could this mean? Any ideas?

once the system update is officially available."

 

 

I personally think is that they will change the message they posted (update) once the update (3ds update) is available........................

Hope you understood lol:D

It would be best to start a new thread for this question, as this thread is about something else and a bit cluttered.  It is much easier for us to answer your question in a less disorganized thread.

Re: Firmware update! SwapNote [Nintendo 3DS Messaging System]

I disagree about SwapNote, because technically it's a "software", and since you have to download softwares from the eShop, and we've seen nothing about it, I don't think it's coming that soon.
