    Unfortunately, this is only a demo 3ds xl, so anyone that wants it is out of luck.
    I would only want it if it flash or display different colors,but then it would drain the
    battery even faster,so it would be pointless.

    The screens are now more glare resistant.

    edit: I felt it was better to have it in one thread.

    Not really, I think she'd be cool with it. Besides I wouldn't get that much for her due to how the economy is at the moment. ^_^

    Done!

    Reminds me of when the N64 was still dominating my life. I used to love the hell out of my clear green N64 because all of my friends always had the boring gray one. :lol: Bring it back Nintendo, just not for the Wii U.

    Obviously they are trying their hardest to make this 3DSXL-thing look amazing. So let's just make it transparent so EVERYBODY will want one. Big whoop.

    ...That doesn't even make sense. For a prototype model, on an article not many people read, and you expect them to use that as a marketing ploy?
    I think you're looking too much into that.

    I'd kill for that thing. The Transparent colors were always my favorite, as long as it was available for each version i brought it.

    Then again, it'd be pretty damn annoying to see every spec of dust/dirt that somehow manages to get into the system. (I already get paranoid with cleaning my white consoles due to dust and grime lol)

    I'm waiting until something slick comes out. I'm not inspired by mat silver

    The glare reductive screen is actually pretty interesting sounding, its been the bane of portable systems for years.

    I'm curious as to how well it'll work. Usually I'm forced to crank brightness to max and that doesn't always work and eats through battery.
