Hey guys, I'm looking into picking up an original model 3DS and I'm interested in the purple one. I've seen numerous unboxing videos, but the color looks different in each of them, so it's hard for me to tell how it really looks.

I was wondering, Is it more of a deep dark purple? Or a bright purple? Does the color look more vibrant or faded?

Thank you guys in advance for the feedback, it helps a lot (=

It's a deep dark purple, and vibrant. The shade of purple imo looks very nice, and not girly at all if that's something you're worried about. Definitely my favorite color for the og model. :)

I know colors can look different on different monitors, but here's the one that I believe matches closest: http://www.perbang.dk/rgb/29004C/

I'd say it's a shade or two brighter than what hanako linked. Remember, on the outside of the top half it gradients to a darker shade. Also, the outside of the bottom half is a lighter shade altogether.

This video is fairly accurate, especially at that time. It seems more blue-looking at some points, but it's really a nice purple, anyway. And it's got that lovely metallic sheen, so it looks even nicer.

Here's a sprite that I didn't make, which I recolored to what I believe is nearly identical: http://i.imgur.com/76W5PaP.png

Also, the GameFAQS "Purple on Black" colour scheme is quite similar.

This is my favourite colour, by the way. I've got it down pat.

My brother has it, and its pretty decent looking.
Its a nice dark shade of purple that's super deep, but since its an OG model it also shines (and slightly sparkles) to make it look brighter than it really is. It's definitely not like a "girly" purple, its like an awesome Dark Magician kinda purple.

Wow, I must say it's a much better color than what I imagined, I'll definitely look into getting one of these soon, thank you guys!

It's beautiful. It's what got me to finally get a 3DS. The price drop helped too. :)

it's purty. If I had to buy an OG 3DS (<3 my Zelda XL) that's be the color I'd choose- though I like the Zelda OG too.
