Torn between the two colors.

The blue is actually quite ugly when viewed in real life. It looks nice in photographs but the reality isn't so much. Just get the black one.

*Gasping* Join the dark side, get a black 3DS. Let all of those you click with it not know they are being clicked.

False. The units are held on by magnets and a wire. Just pull or slide upwards to get it off.

That said, I have the blue one and it's sexy. But most of it is now covered with an awesome Zelda OoT case...



Really? My bad then. I guess I'm just too cautious to try and pull it off. It seemed pretty stuck to me.

The only reason I don't like the colors other than black is because the inside top half of the system is black no matter which color you choose. It looks horrible when opened. If they colored the buttons/circle pad/dpad and the top half to match the outside system color, I would buy blue or any color.

TC, just know that everyone likes the color they go with, so it doesn't matter haha. I heard the blue has sold more.

triforce was the first one to ever buy a 3DS and most people saw that the first 3DS he picked was blue, and imediately thought that was THE original color, but then if you watched the next video, he gave the blue one to the second in line in honor of him taking his place during the harshest days and kept the black one himself, meaning black is the original color by a technicality. not that it matters at all, im just sayin'

i recommend the black one. if you're worried about being unique, you can always add stickers, decals, cellphone straps, and a million other things to it, to make it look unique and you. plus, once all the other colors come out if you got the light blue one you might regret it. you'll never regret black. out of every colored console ive gotten, ive regretted it at least once EXCEPT black. if you get the ps vita as well, it only comes in black, keep that in mind as well.

heres an example of what i mean:

see? you can accessorize it quite easily, but it looks better if its black from the start if you do that.


Thanks I forgot all about decalgirl. I have one on my Wii and it looks great. I think I'll pick black and buy the red skin. Thanks everyone for your opinions.

Here are some pictures of my Blue 3DS, and as for the paint wearing off I see absolutely no signs of it on my 3ds after owning it for a while. The reason I show so many pictures is because my camera is not professional, it's an average phone camera. Also when looking at the photos keeping in mind I had the flash turned on so you may see tiny glimmers of light that look like paint is worn off, but I assure you it hasn't.

Enjoy

Here's how it looks in a nifty bin I picked up at a local $99 cent store.

First off, the 3ds came out first in Japan so that would mean that whoever bought the first one there would dictate the color?

Also, this original color logic is asinine.

As for the question at hand, blue looks so much better. Black WOULD have looked good if it didn't have a sparkle coat. Because of this, it doesn't fully look black.
