Some Nintendo 3DS consoles hit with BSOD

So you got a Nintendo3DS recently, and according to our review from yesterday, it's a pretty good device overall. But we have a small problem, some people are getting a BSOD on their 3DS. Fortunately, it's black instead of blue, and the language used is more inline with OS X kernel panics than the wall of text from NT kernel bluescreens.

This issue was first spotted in a forum post on NeoGAF, and has been picked up by CVG and PCWorld, amongst others. The cause of the BSOD are mixed, but there are two common culprits. Some players report seeing this screen while playing Super Monkey Ball, while others report the issue stems from Super Street Fighter IV losing a wirelessconnection and going into a loop. Others also report the issue stemming from bundled 3DS applications.

 Fortunately, Nintendo is aware of the issue and has issued a statement to affected customers via NowGamer:

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. If the problems still persist we recommend they contact their local Nintendo Customer Service centre to investigate the problem further.

Neowin has the details HERE!
