3DS Firmware Update Next Week Adds Folders, Maybe Patches

Nintendo 3DS systems in North America will be able to get a firmware update on April 25 that will allow system owners to organize games and apps saved into the system in folders. It will also support software patches.

DISCUSSION

About the folders: FUCK YEAH. This is awesome news, I hope there are a lot of options to allow you to organize stuff however you want.

I've been aching for something like this for pretty long now. I own a lot of games on my 3DS, between my Ambassador freebies and all the stuff I've bought in the eShop, and I usually rearrange everything in "groups", as follows: Virtual Console titles, eShop releases, Applications, GBA games, NES games, etc. Every time I buy something new on the eShop, I need to put it in its correct place, and I have to move EVERYTHING ONE BY ONE. It drives me absolutely mad.

Here's hoping this "folders" feature makes that a thing of the past.

On a side note: patches? I thought they weren't anything new. I bought VVVVVV when it was released for the eShop months ago, and it had a glitch that made the game unplayable if you selected "Inverted" mode. And not long ago, I downloaded a update for that game that removed that glitch. Wasn't that a patch?
