    Wait a few months. If the 3DS doesn't die (which it will) you'll probably see it in more colors.

    there is not enough demand for it and they can't make a bunch of green and red consoles and end up with no black and blue while there are a bunch of red and green availabe, just because most ppl don't want them
    i would like a dark-green, but aquablue will be ok [​IMG]
    shouldn't this be in the 3ds section?

    It's always been the case.... When a console comes out it usually limited to either one or a couple of colours....... Later on - Nintendo then brings out other colours

    IIRC when the DSPhat first came out, it was only available in silver - then you could get other colours,
    the same for the DSi - that was only Black and White on release IIRC - now we have various other colours. The Wii - was originally only available in white - now we have Black and Red versions

    I would guess it's the same for the 3DS - we'll start with the Blue and Black, then when a Mario game comes out - the red?? , Zelda game - the green ?? then other colours I would guess will come out

    You're psychic, too? That's the second person tonight that I've seen that says that something WILL happen... Hmmmm....

    I don't think it'll die. With or without 3D the 3DS is something to be reckoned with. I myself am hoping for purple. [​IMG]

    alanjohn check ur pm
    I will buy a red 3DS if one is ever released.
    Blue will probably make me sick after a while and black is 'too dark in the dark'

    You don't release in a lot of colors because while few people will only buy an object because it's a certain color, MANY MANY more will NOT buy something because of the color.

    Imagine if you will the system was released in black, blue, and pink. Most gamers are still male and the black and blue units will sell out faster... How many little boys will buy the pink system versus waiting for more black and blue to come in?

    There will already be shortages of the system at launch. Nintendo isn't going to want to hurt it's own sales by running out of colors that are more neutral and thus more likely to sell.

    Black is definitively a safer choice, I've read many impressions/comments describing blue one as ugly.
    Still the shininess of 3DS is a big fail for me, making it look cheap and plasticky...

    not rly
    most ppl say the blue suck and those who actually saw the aqua blue version mostly said it looks great
    the black will be a bigger problem during the summer, i can guarantee that
    the shininess makes it look the opposite of "cheap and plasticky", the problem is, it's fingerprint magnet, which the matt dsi wasn't
