Does the white interior of the 3DS XL White influence the 3D effect?

#1KoenigHagenPosted 12/3/2012 3:04:04 PM
Im thinking about doing the "upgrade" from my normal 3DS in aqua-blue to the Xl, but I am undecided in which color to get.

I like the white one (with Mario Kart 7), as it is the only one with one-color-sheme, but Im afraid the white interior will influence the 3D effect or distract me.

Has anyone a experience to share?

Kind regards!

PS: I may apologize for my english, Im from Germany and its way to long I was in the need of writing something in english.

I always love when non-native English speakers apologize for their English when it's so much more coherent and legible than most native but lazy-a55 anglophones.

Anyway, lol, sorry TC, don't know. But I bumped your topic!

i've never had the pleasure of using a 3ds with anything other than a black border, so i wouldn't know, but i can't imagine not having a black border affects the 3d that much. i do have an idea though - see if you can find a white piece of cardboard or something, cut a hole so it fits around your 3ds' screen, and see if it affects the 3d at all. might be a dumb idea, but hey if a white piece of cardboard makes no difference to the 3d i can't see why a white border would.

Thanks for the compliment and for the helpful advice!
I did as you recommended, and I have to say:
Although the 3D-Effect is barely affected, the viewing experience is different. Think as you watch a movie in the cinema, but the borders around the screen are white...
But it just might be unusual to me because the last portable consoles I owned all had a black border around the screen.
Anyone got a white 3DS Xl and can share his/her opinion on this topic?

Pretty sure it was said in some interview/article that the black border was only needed on the 3DS because of the size of the screen. With the XL's larger screen, it is not needed.

Nah, no difference. The larger XL has better 3d anyways.

I have a white XL and it looks better in 3D than my launch Cosmo Black unit.
