    Don't know why the red is glossy, but the black in the UK is 'matt'

    Possibly when the DSi first came out in the UK, they were 'matt' (& we could only get Black or White at the time), but when Nintendo brought out more colours in the UK they decided to change to 'Glossy'

    My white DSi is matte, maybe it's just red ones that are glossy. Are you sure it's not a DSi XL? I think they're glossy.

    Black matte here.

    What you really need to ask though, is why is BlackDave's DSi chrome?! [​IMG]

    My white pre-launch DSi is matte. I wonder why the red DSi's are glossy... Maybe to act like lipstick? [​IMG]

    I think girls would prefer the glossy finish.

    If you couldn't tell, I already knew that.
