    One man must have said, "I always love to flash mah nips on the go, but I hate the hassle of taking off my clothes. What can I do?"

    I don't know who you are, mysterious man, but Nintendo heard your plight.

    I must say I never understood why all the official designs are upside-down.

    The way I look at it... You buy the design because YOU like it, not to flash it to other people while playing the system. It would look bad if it was flipped the other way when the system is closed, which is what YOU would see the most often. I always place my 3DS XL with the opening facing me, but that's just me... and everyone else on earth.

    Damn Pikachu has got some high nips.

    Which means everyone looking at you will see it upside down...

    Why does it matter what other people see? It's not more important for the owner to see a right side up image when it's closed?

    Well, like you said:


    The majority of the time you are looking at your 3DS, it's with the opening facing you. It just looks odd to anyone else viewing it.

    I'm not trying to argue here, just giving my two cents. You're allowed to like whatever you like, I'm not going to say you are stupid and wrong for preferring something different :P

    Ah, some other members can take lessons from you, good sir. :lol:
    Not intending an argument either, just bored.


    Anyways, I'd never show this thing in public so :unsure:
    I'm happy with my red XL and whatever decal I am using.
