    I've seen pictures on a few websites of Black R4/M3. Do these exist as I thought they only came in White???



    Cheers

    me too. there is also a sticky on the forums that said the black/gray casings are only going to be for a little bit of time.

    The one I got a few months ago from DealExtreme was black. I remember someone saying that the English ones were coming in Black and the Chinese ones were coming in White.

    You can get a replacement shell of either color from DealExtreme for $2.95 US.

    Black and White

    Mine is black, and my boyfriend's is white. I heard that the first batch was white, then they were going to "experiment with other colors" such as black. Weird though, because I got mine first.... Weren't they packaging both cases together for a little while?

    Thanks for the dealextreme link. I'm going to order a black replacement case to match my onyx ds. The white case makes it too obvious that I have a ROM cart!

    They started with White - English and Black - Chinese, then made both black, and then changed chinese to white.

    actually, I think r4 first came out with 2 cases (black and white), then white, then now black. confirmed with the local stores that sell them around here. m3 on the other hand got the reverse of the r4 (white/black, black, white)

    I ordered mine a while ago (near it's release) it came white and also came with black housing in the package.

    My cousin ordered him a couple months after me. It came white. (No extra housing)

    I ordered one for my brother and one for my girlfriend last week. Both of them are black.

    Every single R4 is Chinese.
