    I'M SO CONFLICTED. I'm currently saving up for a 3DS, but I'm not sure which of the two colors I should get. All my consoles so far have been black or silver, so I really want a black 3DS to match up with my other consoles, yet at the same time I'm conflicted as to whether or not I should get an Aqua Blue 3DS because of its discontinuation.

    HELP ME, 'TEMP.

    Personally, i'd go purple. But for you, i would roll with black. BUT around the holidays there may be a limited edition around (im thinking kirby) so you could wait till the holidays for that. Theres normally discounts and stuff round the holidays too.

    Go with purple. Easily the best color out right now, but I would go for black if you only want black / aquablue for consistency.

    Once you go black you'll never want to go back

    I suggest you go with black. I have an aqua blue 3DS that I'm quite happy with, but the things you say suggest that black is the color you really want (you say you've always gotten black or silver, and you want them to match up, and the only reason you give for wanting aqua blue is its rarity). I hope this helps! :)

    aqua blue is like green, it's pretty close to my favorite color, i would go for it any day
    black also gets way too hot in the sun
    but if you want to match it with your other consoles, then i guess go for black, most people get black, then white when the choice is available

    If I were you I'll go straight with the 3DS XL because it surpasses whatever is on the current set at just $30 more.

    But if you are persistent on 3DS, go with Black. Although its a larger fingerprint magnet, it'll blend better with the upper black border.

    99% of all TV screen have black borders/frames, why?
    Because it make's it easier for your eyes to focus on the screen.

    The Aqua Blue 3DS has a black top screen.

    Yea, and the top screen is most used too I know.
    But having strong colors close to a screen isn't very smart

    How so? You're not going to be staring at the touchscreen.
