How many people actually wait for certain colors before buying a handheld?

I saw someone in another topic say they wanted to buy a 3DS but wasn't sure because he thought the colors were ugly. Do people really do this and treat the 3DS like it's some sort of fashion accessory?

They're too poor or cheap to buy skins.

Well, people just like to utilize their options.

I just bought a black one, I couldn't care less about the colour.

Look at it like this, its a portable handheld.

Your gonna be staring at the entire thing for god knows how long so might as well wait.

Me personally I just wanted a limited 3DS XL so getting the Animal Crossing one since my Black 3ds has a dead pixel lol.

I made a poll based on the title. Search this board for:

Yes! I do it with handhelds and consoles. I got a DS Lite because it was Crimson & Black. I got a 3DS because it was purple. I got a Wii because it was red.

Some people don't like skins or cases. I'm this way with my handhelds and phones, only time my phone is in a case is when I think my daughter will be playing a kneebouncers game on it.

Earlier this year back in January I was trying to get a Nintendo DSI in red but then the Nintendo 3DS came around so I got my 3DS in midnight purple

Since I'll be staring at the thing forever, I'd prefer to have a color that I like. When I finally decided I wanted a 3DS XL, I was prepared to buy the blue/black one, even though I didn't like it. But when I heard the pink/white one might be coming over, I decided to wait. So glad I did.

yeah. I want a white one with a stormtrooper sticker. I love the white XL; I think it is worth waiting for.
