So uh, fingerprints...

3DS haz them? or not? DS Lite is a fingerprint magnet. Has any journalist commented on this?

You will look at the top screen most of the time so it's not that bad. I also hope the final version won't be glossy to reduce fingerprints.

The 3DS demo units they had at E3 were glossy and they had TONS of fingerprints on them. Of course given how many people had handled them, it's no wonder. I'm hoping they give the final unit a more matte finish like the DSi, but who knows.

I hope so as well.. it's a bit annoying how they're back and forth with this. One minute it's matte, the next it's glossy. Does matte cost more money to produce?

I don't mind a glossy outside, but I prefer a matte inside. Sure you'll still get fingerprints on the glossy parts but they're unnoticeable when playing and if you want to show it off to somebody you can easy wipe the fingerprints off.

Am I the only one who prefers the glossiness? Same story with the PS3, I far the glossy one.
When I first tried out the DSi, the matte just made it feel cheaper, I don't know why. :P

Well, a PS3 is something different because it's a stationary console and you don't have to touch it all the time.
