The Black Screen of Death

It seems as though that the newly released Nintendo 3DS is exeriencing firmware issues everywhere that people are calling the “Black Screen of Death.” It is not clear what is causing this black screen, but it pops up by simply playing a game, using one of the many apps, using the online features, and by browsing the home menu. Very odd if we do say so ourselves. 3DS users claimed to have resolved this issue (temporarily) by following the on-screen instructions, only for the screen to pop up again a little later. They have even gone as far as to formatting the SD card in an attempt to reslove this issue. Here is one 3DS owner’s comment about his issues with the 3DS and what others said as well. Of course, Nintendo has already responded to this big issue by saying 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.”
