    my dad works for nintendo.
    true story, there was a building painted all bright red (i think it was in china or something) when looking at it you would see green
    and i am curious why you said other colours, because the red turning into green is a known effect, but i never heard about other colors

    Looking at the switch pictures of the neon they look odd.
    some look a vibrant red other look orange red.
    Some look pastel red.

    Yeah, most of the images I initially saw were more 'pastelly' - but it seems the colours are actually more vibrant (as witnessed by various youtube unboxings - the only one I can remember right now being iJustine's, where she specifically mentions the colours being more vivid).

    well, there can be a case of review\demo units having a slightly differnt colour than the retail product
    (or maybe nintendo manufactered the first few units with a color, reviewed and made the slightly change for whatever reason..)
    and you know, all cameras have some differences, while proffessional PR pictures are edited to look better... etc...
    well, just 2 more days to find out..

    They're more red than orange, but they do have a fair amount of orange tint.
