    Not sure if you saw already, but:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    "Now, if you would look to the right" and to the corner hiding the shoulder button is, you will see a white light, wifi power indicator?
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    And on this side, you can see another small translucent square that shares the same led for the wifi(right above it, too)
    Not crazy about black plate that surrounds the upper screen, or the scratch/scuff magnet it will end up becoming [​IMG]
    My brother's friends are there, even got the new xbox ;-;
    Now, It's 5.18am and I no sleep yet, so..good morning?

    @Omega_2-

    I think in the first pic, that white light is just a shine reflection from the light source. I don't think that's any sort of system light. That's just me though.

    What I learned from the current DS "Metalic" colors is the paint wears off on the inside. I'll keep to the Black color.

    Wow.
    Am I the only one who actually thinks that the black one doesn't look that good?

    But, it might just be because I prefer the blue one.
    It looks absolutely stunning.

    I dont know. I love the idea of the 3DS but the way it looks when its closed looks like duce and the game boxes look bad. Why is the 3DS on the other side? Defy all reason will you nintendo!?

    EDIT i may end up waiting for a second version. The 3DS lite. Or maybe the 3DSi.

    It was shown in the commercial, actually, at the point where they said the 3DS would automatically search for other 3DS's. It's an indicator of whether the searching function is on or not, I guess.

    So do I. Originally the light blue model looked darker, and I'd like one in a shade of darker blue, like this picture.

    And I believe the hinge light is actually a light. Look at the photo of the red one in the case and you can probably make out a small mark where the light was.

    i dont like the black one at all, but i also dont like how the upper part is black and doesnt fit the lower
    but im still not willing to buy a black one since its boringg

    E: wooow just looked at the pictures..~~

    i wanted to get the blue one but the purple one is sooo amazing~ its set

    but i hate how the 3ds looks so fat and not slim at all... but thats probably on purpose so they can sell newer lite etc versions

    That's what I was going to say. I don't think they have to use a hardware switch like on the GBA for GBC games (that's kind of a different situation, where it needed different voltages and so on).

    OMG DO WANT!

    I swear, if that is a launch color, first day purchase guaranteed! Oh who am I kidding, it's gonna be a day one purchase regardless....

    So, why the hell are they still using their own crappy charging connector?! Why not just go with micro USB? [​IMG]

    Oh god, I want the green one!! [​IMG]

    I like the gold and the light-blue one at the end. They should make more matte colours!

    1) Wheres the microphone?
    2) Is the power input the same of the DSi?

    hmm, i really think they ought to stop the components from jutting out so much, but i really love the colours! (especially red [​IMG] ) the placement of the heaphone port is dumb though. also am i the only one mad about the fact that the 3d screen is so much larger? also they NEEEEEED! to choose between a D-Pad and an analog stick. PLEASE only one!

    Microphone is underneath and to the right of the start button.

    Looks the same, except the top corners look a little more triangular rather than rounded. It's still 4.6V

    Definitely going for the orange!

    I love the cartridge design, but the boxes look really similar to the current DS ones.
