    The 3DS icon stands out so much...
    and the Red and Blue Anaglyph text on the screen hurts my eyes..

    it's an icon, yes?

    an icon is to represent something, it's not like a picture

    (besides, nobody here tells you to look at it for longer for you to feel the pain)

    @Antoligy it's not lost forever.. it's still here [​IMG]

    maybe it's too small??

    Yeah...I think that all of the icons should be redesigned to fit a theme or style.

    Some look HD, like the 3DS and homebrew logos.

    Some look like cartoony versions of the real consoles (Wii, DS)

    And some more look like default clip-art.

    There was no 3DS icon so I used that one. I didn't know that it'd look squashed like that, the aspect ratio given in the preview does not appear to be the same aspect ratio the site actually uses within the portal (if you look it's correct in the actual thread as well). I'll take note of the aspect ratio and make proper icons for what we're missing when I have time, but as far as I've seen the only actual 3DS pictures we have that would fit are of colorful models.

    It's not the Aspect Ratio that's bothering me, it just seems out of place with all the other icons.

    and there was a 3DS icon

    Pretty sure AW will provide a better icon if you ask him.

    I don't mind it, though I would rather have the cube instead of this.
