What color 3DS XL to get? Red or Blue?

Just make sure you check them both out in person, because they tend to look different than their respective pictures. I was leaning toward blue until I saw them side by side at target. I was surprised to find that I actually didn't care for blue in person, while red looked rather nice.

I went with red although I would have preferred matte black or gray tbh.

Got red, kind wish I got blue. Though if I got blue I probably would think the same for red.

Either way both suck IMO, where the f*** was the grey/black option in NA

Having a bit of the same problem. I like both actually, but am waiting until past E3 (I know there is no booth, but I never doubt new colors being announced) to pick one up. Unless there is an awesome Memorial Day sale and they drop to around $150-160 again.

What color do you like?

I love my pikachu because of the white inside, the matte feel is nice and really isn't that ugly.

You can always skin it.

But when it came to choosing RED or BLUE I went with niether!


Was going to get a midnight purple 3DS but then XL got announced, I basically cost myself years of no DS because of colors.

If you want animal crossing you should get the bundle, if not blue, I think it looks better, but I'm part of the Pikanips Master race.

Wait so Animal Crossing will have a bundle with the 3DS XL? Is this bundle going to be an American release? I was going to get a 3DS XL soon and Animal Crossing. Might have to check that out. Anyway yeah I have been trying to decide between Red and Blue. I was going with blue but after reading this topic I may go for Red. I was wanting a all black 3DS XL to match my DSi so may wait and see if any new colors will be released.

Never mind I just googled the Animal Crossing bundle. Looks to kiddy like for me. Plus the box says Animal Crossing is pre-installed onto the 3DS XL. I want a physical copy with the case and artwork and everything. Guess I go back to blue for now until we see if any new colors come out.

Red.

Only the Red Ranger leads. The Blue Ranger merely follows.
