Planned Obsolescence (Or Why I'm basically done with Nintendo and consoles)
June 27, 2019

Last night, I decided to whip out my trusty 3DS XL and finally finish Bowser's Inside Story. My portable that I've owned for over six years had been sitting in its case for about a month, untouched. The last time I played it, everything was working fine. Well, life comes at you fast. Despite having been untouched for about a month, my "A" button had suddenly become unresponsive. Okay, I'll just send it to Nintendo for--

"Note About Repairs for the Original Nintendo 3DS and Original Nintendo 3DS XL: Nintendo no longer offers factory repairs for these systems. Newer Nintendo 3DS family products (including the Nintendo 2DS) are still being repaired. If you aren't sure which system you have, check the serial number on the back of your system. If the serial number begins with CW or SW, you have an original Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL system, respectively."

*Checks back of 3DS XL. Serial number begins with SW. Cue Seinfeld theme. Cue credits.*
