    Too bad they are region locked preventing people from getting the colors not available in their region.

    I refuse to buy a 3ds until they paint the analog nub. That's just sloppy nintendo, shame on you.

    You can always buy the japan unit, disassemble it, and proceed to swap out the circuit boards. The region block is software only. Nothing from stopping you from physically swapping out the main circuit board on them essentially transplanting the USA 3DS into the Japan's Red & Black shell. [​IMG]

    You can then just resale the Japan unit as a standard 3DS to recoup some of the cost.

    So you would wilfully sell a Japanese unit as a standard unit from your region ?

    In other words deliberately rip someone off ?

    I really hope I've got the wrong end of the stick here.

    You re-sell the Jap 3DS in a Blue/Black case after swapping the US 3DS out of it and into a Red case.

    Yes.

    In other words what looks like a standard 3DS in black/aqua blue is in fact the innards of Japanese 3Ds.

    In other other words a dupe, a rip off, a deliberate con. Keep the US/Euro DS in the nice Jap region only red case and fuck the poor unsuspecting bastard that buys the black/Aqua Blue case wit the swapped out Japanese actual DS within.


    Fuck that.
    and fuckj anyone that thinks that's fair game :/

    and fuck anyone prepared to do that.

    Who said he would keep that a secret?
    My guess is that he would tell people he is actually selling a Japanese 3DS

    If he does then fair that's fair game.

    But I for one would expect it at a knock down price considering it's been fecked about and under no warranty, at all.

    No he means red and black in one console. So the outside will be red but the inside of the top screen will be black because of the 3d effect needing it to be black (allegedly)
