The Good, the bad and the fiddly: Nintendo’s UI

The reason I love Nintendo, is the games. Often the hardware too, but mostly the games. They are experts at crafting consistently imaginative gaming experiences.

However if there’s one area they are not experts in, it’s creating consistently friendly user interfaces for their consoles. (3DS, Nintendo, Wii, Wii U)

I'm a person who likes to keep things organized, and I can't tell you how much grief the 3DS UI has given me.

Why?

At least you can organize stuff into folders on the 3DS. The WiiU just forces you to toss everything on-screen at once.

Huh. I've never noticed that option...
I am slow....
But on the bright side you made my 3DS alot better. The thing I do on the wii U is use each page for a certain thing. (I.E one for virtual console, one indies, one for video services, etc.)

Don't you find the 3DS folders a little ugly, and hard to label effectively? I guess this will be more of an issue as the Wii U library gets larger.
Dj7FairyTail  +   457d ago
Not really.
Top Screen Shows the Full Name of the Folder and Touch Screen only show the first letter.

The Folders are great.
