Fils-Aime: 3DS Consumer’s Biggest Issues Have Been Resolved

During an interview with gaming site Kotaku, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime explained that the company has been steady at work addressing consumers’ issues with their star handheld the 3DS. Fils-Aime stated that through “consumer information,” the company picked up that consumers’ biggest issue with the system was its launch title line-up, as it lacked a “big Nintendo franchise.” This issue is hoped to be cleared out by the large first-party title line-up that is coming in the near future. In response to the concern, Fils-Aime claimed that, “I think we’ve got that issue not only identified, but addressed.”

Up next was the second-biggest consumer issue with the 3DS, its lack of online support. With the launch of Nintendo’s eShop during E3, Fils-Aime thinks that the company has successfully corrected this problem. The shop itself, along with the upcoming features like Netflix and 3D movies, is meant to be an end-all solution to the online support issue. While the addition of these features is promising and pleasing, there are still a couple of consumer issues that we’ve found that coincide with these two mentioned.

A lot of consumers out there have noted on numerous occasions that while the addition of Netflix and 3D movies would be a great step, the handheld simply wouldn’t have the battery life to last through an entire film. On top of this, there is also an issue moving through players out there dealing with the “#D sweet spot” on the slider, which is supposed to be a perfect balance between the depth of the 3D functionality and the display screen. Though Fils-Aime may think the major two issues have been addressed, consumers out there are still talking. What do you think about Fils-Aime’s claim? Have you experienced any other major issues with Nintendo’s 3DS so far?
