    Hey,

    does anybody here know if the 3DS XL Pikachu Edition has a mat finish like the normal 3DS XLs or a glossy surface like the "small" 3DS?
    I know that thing is not really in wide circulation as it was only sold in Pokemon Centers in Japan so far. But we in Europe are getting it as a limited edition at December 7. I don't have any 3DS yet, and the standard 3DS XL colours look a bit boring to me. And I like Pokemon, so I want to buy this one. But I really hate that glossy surfaces most video game controllers/handhelds have these days, because get dirty really quick with fingerprints.

    Yeah on the pictures the "inner part" of that 3DS XL does look mat, but I'm not sure what finish the outer yellow part has, judging by the pictures I found with Google.

    It's matte indeed, but pretty butt-ugly in my opinion.
    I'd stick to the original colours if I were you.

    I don't know, I'm not to fond the red, blue and silver they have for the XL, they all look kinda strange to me. And the all white XL that is in this years holiday bundles is boring in my oppinion.

    I'd get it immediately if it had yellow insides too, but the white and yellow combo looks horrible
