I really want to buy a 3DS XL, but the color choices are rubbish for NA.

Skin it.

NOA is cheap.

I have the blue/black from the american MK7 bundle and it's a nice color. it was never my prefered color of choice for my XL but still nice nonetheless. i would have prefered that all white 3DS XL europe got for their MK7 bundle or even all black :(.

But back in december when Target was price matching Best Buy's $159.99 sale price plus offering a free $30 GC plus the fact that the XL was already pre-installed with MK7 it was a no brainer.

Throw in the fact that i was already getting Luigi's Mansion and never registered my XL code so it got me another free retail game in SM3DL from the Club Nintendo promotion.

In my opinion, getting an un-prefered XL color and three full retail games (two of them free) for $189.99 isn't bad at all.

Just give me an "Officially Licensed by Nintendo" Nintendo themed Hori skin decal to give the outside of my XL some life and i'm good! :).

If I ever get a XL (which will only happen, if my original is dying, which, as knowing Nintendo, will not happen in the next 10 years) it will be either sexy silver or bodacious black. Although frickin' Fire Emblem looks nice as well. Choice over choice over choice. Bad blue, random red and puny Pikachu do not interest me at all.

Nintendo should hire you to name their console colors.

I like blue, just not the particular one they use.

May I suggest:

The only choice you have is to skin it if you want something diffrent.
