    I was wondering how long it would take for custom shells to be made.

    How long did it take for the DS Phat and DS Lite?

    I'll just wait a year or so in case the 3DS has faults...and so my warranty expires. But I want a clear transparent case to match my lineup:

    Transparent GB
    Transparent GBA
    Transparent DS Lite

    I would greatly prefer the colors that we were shown at E3.

    I'd definitely like a transparent 3DS, but the inside of the top half of the case would still have to be black. [​IMG]

    Oooh is that why it's black? Has to do with the 3D Screen? Or is this just a person preference thing?

    It's a design choice by Nintendo.
    I doubt it's to do with the 3d screen.

    No it does have to do with the 3D, black helps you focus better on the 3D effects.
