Ok.. now,, that was a really, really dumb, stupid decision.
I´m sure millions of owners make good use of it. Me and my friends, for example, use it to share screenshots and tips.
Without the Swap Note service, it doesn´t make much sense to have a friend list at all, since we can only exchange letters by streetpass, or, when we do actuall meet.

Really stupid, Nintendo. Really

All the people who are complaining about this should be ashamed of themselves. You are as casual as it can get, because Swapnote was non-gaming.


This... doesn´t make any sense.

It was a service for gamers. The option of using or not using it doesn´t make anyone less a gamer than any self-considered dumbcore gamer



Noooooooooooooooooooooo



Switch!!!

Why is Nintendo so overbearing about everything online? So what if people wanted to send dirty pictures over any of their services. Are they going to be checking over all messages sent via text now too?


They want to avoid news stories such as this.

Then they'd have to eliminate the SD's card support for PC and eliminate access to the internet, or just re-launch Swapnote w/o Attach Pic support :I

But this has just shown me that Nintendo isn't smart enough for that.

THIS is why we'll NEVER have a Pokémon MMO, or a Nintendo MMO for that matter...

Reggie sent something inappropriate to Iwata, who got mad and shut the whole thing down in response.

That's too bad. I like using SwapNote to send happy birthday notes to my friends.



I didn't even get to say goodbye. :(

But here's the thing--we all worried about Kinect 2.0 watching us masturbate to web browser porn on the Xbox One when our mom was out buying groceries and we pretended to be sick but as soon as she leaves, we would reach under our bed and pull out the extra soft sock and pull our pants down--but was it NINTENDO that was watching us all along?  Hmm......



question: does swapnote allow this offensive material get to individuals that were not expecting it (get a note from a stranger) or does swapnote only allow communications between friends?

...cause i can completely understand the former but not the latter.

Only between friends.  And you had to actually give a child permission and your signature as a parent via the 3DS to let a child receive Swapnote stuff.  I was a responsible parent.

If Nintendo was a person, I would punch them in the face.  Goddammit.  I used Swapnote to "text" my daughter and ask her how her school day went.  Now I can't even do this anymore. 



:(

Too bad, it was kinda fun.
