Are ALL of the top halfs going to be black?

Why Nintendo? Even the freshly announced pink has it.


I don't like my electronics to be dust magnets!

so you don't get distracted by bright colors while playing a game.

Well...what's wrong with it? I like it.
Perhaps to distinguish between the DS models and the 3DS? [sans the model with black top and red bottom]

Reminds me of the newer PS3 models and how they took off the glossy look of it. :(

There was something about it on iwata asks. The black enhances the 3D effect or something.

The easily distracted and in need of hand-holding throughout the game.
Otherwise, the difficulty IS TOO DAMN HIGH.

Lol. On the board for The Third Birthday there's a few topics about people that started on the hard mode. You know what like half the board does when those people ask for advice? You should've started on easy.

Seriously -__-

I'm playing the game on hard and managing just fine. Sure, it's hard. But that's why I went for hard immediately.

I suspect it's partially to mask the fact that DS games don't use the whole top screen. It makes it easier to ignore the black bars and concentrate on the actual image.

Why the top half gotta be bla-*shot*

It's because the 3D effect works best when there's a dark neutral to contrast the actual screen against.
If the system around the screen was shiny blue, or red, it'd take a lot from the 3D effect.
