    I was disappoint until I saw it, the glossy one looks better. I'm glad I've got this model even if it is a fingerprint magnet.
    EDIT: to reiterate, I usually would have jumped for matte immediately, but it looks nasty in this instance.

    Matte looks soo much nicer.

    This news topic should have a poll: Gloss or Matte?

    I prefer having electronics that try not too stand out too much. Hence why I like the Slim PS3.

    Matte finish looks great on most electronics. There are some things that look nicer with a glossy finish, like phones/smartphones/PMPs.

    Matte looks sexy, but the shiny looks sexier!
    Gonna have to go with the shiny model on this one.

    I'd go for Matte, becasue too many kids touch/use my consoles (PS2,PS3, Wii, Xbox, N64 etc etc etc)
    Fingerprints is bad! Makes them look fugly :S

    I hate Matte surfaces, they are hard to get rid of finger prints (DSi still has some finger prints lol), apart from that they are ok, Glossy are sweet IMO, they do get finger prints quickly but are easy to wipe off.

    Matte is so much classier in my opinion.
    The DS Lite was shiny, but then the DSi was matte with a bit of shine.
    Then the 3DS just went even shinier, reflective in fact.

    Matte red on a 3ds would be so nice.

    I love Matte on all my consoles/handhelds. I just don't like the occasional permanent fingerprint.

    I like matte on my consoles, not on my handhelds though.

    I must admit gloss is a pain because its a fingerprint magnet , but i keep a cover on my 3DS so that has not got any but my Ps3 has and got to the point where it could do with a new covering for the top.

    Even though I still have a Matte original 360, I happen to like the glossy Slims. They remind me more of the Alienware computer towers.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I prefer the glossy finish, even though it attracts a crapload of fingerprints.

    Screw Alienware. They're just as overpriced as Macs. Just build your own, lazy asses.
