Finally we can now file our games and applications into Folders! So how are you going to file them?

For me I'm going to have all the inbuilt applications along with Swapnote, Eurosport and Nintendo Video out for easy access along with my 3DSWare titles and have DSiWare, VC and Ambassador titles put into folders so I can find them a lot easier and won't clutter my screen too much.

So, how about you? It's your turn now!

Folders were announced on Saturday, 21st April by Satoru Shibata via Nintendo Direct. These will be released in the firmware update on 25th April.

I'm going to keep all my games in different folders. They will be organized by what system the game was originally for (gameboy,3DS, NES,etc.).

I was going to do that... but then it'll look more like Folder City. Everything might be grouped together, but sheesh... too much foldering.

Are the folders gonna be on the main page?

And I will keep the games that I play the most on the menu page, and I'll end up putting the least used games in a folder.

Demon, do you know if you can use a 32gb SD card in the 3D system?I might pick one up this weekend.

I believe so, it takes any size I think.

Yeah the folders will be on the main page... easy to store my stuff. :P I just wonder if they'll release the update early... you never know. I highly doubt it but still.

EDIT: Well the eShop is currently down for maintenance so I'm guessing the update must be coming fairly soon. Can't wait!

Rory, take a look at the third post from the top. This guy states it has to be a 32 GB, "SDHC," card. He also states that this information can be found on page 36 of the 3DS instruction manual.

This link will direct you to the page of the forum containing the aforementioned post.

Edit: Oops... I had to edit the link, but it functions correctly now. :P

It takes me to the page but it also wants me to make an account, which I don't want to do. And what exactly is "SDHC"? Can it be any size SD card?

SDHC = Secure Digital High-Capacity. It's just a fancier name for an SD card that holds more gigabytes, therefore the "High-Capacity" in the name. :P

Rory, just click on the, "Continue to the Full Site," link near the bottom of that page. That's a little strange, because it takes me directly to the page in question. :P

Folders? Awesome!
GBA, NES, Demos, Home menu Software and Games I've downloaded. Stuff I use the most will be kept on the home screen.

The update is live! Went out early for some reason. But it's nice having it there. They've changed the layout of the eShop now though and, ofcourse, folders can now be created on the HOME Menu.

How is the new update? I'm only asking because I won't be able to update my 3DS until Friday.

It's actually not too bad, but I personally find putting games into Folders takes a while for it to move in. You can't have a folder inside a folder though which sucks and it only displays the first letter on the folder, however there's a way to make it look nicer by using symbols.

They've redone the eShop layout. It's got two rows of icons now, the first row is for themes and/or shelves. The second row has Demo's, DSiware, 3DSWare and Virtual Console tabs. Also clicking on News, Charts and Recent Arrivals shows up as a pop-up rather than filling the whole screen.

I hope that explains it of sorts. You'll have to see it for yourself on Friday. :P

I put my main screen so its 5 deep by whatever else it is the other way. And I put the folders across the bottom in this order.

Miscellaneous-3DS eShop-DSi Ware-Adv.Gameboy-NES Games-Gameboy/GB Color-Sega Gamegear-Videos-Free Demos

And I leave out 4 games that I play the most and I put them above the folder that it belongs to, and I put the rest of the games into the folder. My screen looks pretty sweet with this set up
