Exactly! I'm a single dude (happily! Otherwise I couldn't afford all my gadgets :D) with a passion for games. That purple color is awesome and is worth the money to me. --- Playing: NSMBU, CoD: BO2, Zombi U, Trine 2 Planetside 2 (Soltech VS), EVE Online, Battlefield 3, and NHL 13
I'm not worried about new colors or anything. I worry about wear and tear on my handheld. I want to be able to play it 25 years from now, and the only way I see me keeping a pristine 3DS is to buy a new one every 4 or 5 years.
You have 5 over the thing's 2 years. You passed your quota 15-20 years already. Why would you even try to buy one every 4-5 years when after the first 5-6 years they will start talking about the next handheld and stop making 3DS'. --- Pokemon White FC: 0346 8604 2225 White 2 FC: 2924 7399 0619 PSN: phayro_rip People Only Like Obama, that's the motto Romney, P.O.L.O.
Yet another reason why Nintendo is the absolute worst. There should be no transfers. No restrictions etc. Just copy what EVERY OTHER COMPANY IN THE WORLD DOES! It's anti-consumer policies like this that make me glad the 3DS and Wii U are struggling. --- 2013: Next Gen finally arrives. Don't let us down like Nintendo did.
That's the end of the world, so please be responsible...

lol @ people defending this. It's a ridiculous, arbitrary restriction, that does absolutely nothing but annoy paying customers. Everybody loses. I would like to upgrade to a purple system from my launch blue, but I haven't because of this stupid restriction. I don't want to waste my transfers should I really need them at some point. They're like ink ribbons.
This is what happens when Nintendo sits on tons of cash in the bank and doesn't invest into creating a decent online infrastructure so instead they stick with this silly system limit. Regardless, just buy the physical copy of the game anyway if the option is there, you can always sell it at a later point or keep for collection.
