    which is better - Blue or black 3DS?

    ie which felt better texture wise (if their is a difference)
    Did you feel more comfortable playing the black or blue 3DS?
    Which distracted you from the 3D more? Shiny black or blue?
    Did the blue or black look/feel cheap?
    The light blue colour on the bottom layer looks very toy like. Will i regret getting tacky blue instead of more grown up looking black one?
    Overall, is it well made and does the top screen shut flush with the system when closed? Looks like it floats above and not close properly.

    Misleading title. This is about the colors.

    Great comment.

    Not misleading, i genuinly want to know what people who have tried 3DS to tell me how well made they are. This is not a 'are you getting blue or black' thread.
    I am clearly asking which is better quality.

    for example.

    Black DSi and white DSi feel different to the touch, and also react to fingerprits and scratches differently.

    The blue test model I've been messing about with for a few hours doesn't suffer from scratches all that easily and it doesn't show fingerprints all that clearly either. It's by no means indestructible but it's certainly resilient. I have no basis for comparison though, the store only has one test model for now.

    Well it def looks tougher than the DS Lite, that's a given. What a shite hinge design that one had despite the fact that I've never experienced the cracking hinge problem.

    source nintendo.hu

    which translates in short to:
    the black color gives a cinematic feeling/helps getting into the game and "locking out" the environment

    I managed to play on both systems at the event, but spent more time playing the cosmic black model for Nintendo Marketing. Personally I found the Black model look more suited to the whole design, it has a misty dark granite kind of look on the outside. Both models feel the same, and have the same texture and sheen on the outside of the console. I think after seeming it myself I would prefer black, but the aqua was good looking too.

    I have pre-ordered the black but the blue one looks enticing.
    Might try persuade my better half to get a blue one if it turns out to be as good as I hope.
