While the outside of the case - the one you usually see is this awesome shiny blue, the inside seems to be a flat, glittery slightly-turquoisey colour that's quite ugly.

I've already pre-ordered the Blue 3DS but I'm kinda considering changing to black..

Over here it looks okay: http://the3ds.webs.com/photos/3DS/n3ds1.jpg
but that's I believe at E3 and not the latest model (note the analog stick is blue, not white)

Here it looks awesome from the outside: http://images.nintendolife.com/news/2011/03/talking_point_to_...

(edit: here too it looks fine - http://images.nintendolife.com/news/2011/03/hands_on_nintendo...)

But here, the side where the buttons are on, I think it looks completely ugly: http://images.nintendolife.com/news/2011/03/hands_on_nintendo...

anyone agree?

I think that in photos it does tend to look ugly, but in real life it looks fantastic! If you can see a demo unit in person I'd recommend doing that before you change your pre-order.

I like my electronics to be black, but of course, I'm in the minority on this. Most of the replies you'll get on this thread will say the Blue one looks better.

I like the Black one sooooooo much more.

It's not the outside but the inside that counts.

But I would still prefer blue over black, even though both will get fingerprints all over them (sigh).

This is going to sound biased considering I do like the Black one better, but I think the Black one looks better on the inside as well. The blue just seems to clash awkwardly with the black on the inside of the blue 3DS. The black 3DS has more of a dark grey on the inside from what I've heard, and that clashes a lot less than blue does.

I don't judge by the color of skin.

That being said, black is beautiful

I preordered the Blue 3DS and then went back and swapped it to the Black one myself. ;)

I had a feeling this would happen. I say everyone would say they want Blue and the Black opinions start flowing in. Blah. If I left my comment at that, the Blue opinions would start coming, and if I said the Blue opinions would come then they wouldn't, and it's a never-ending cycle from there.

...unless I say it's a never-ending cycle, then the cycle will reverse just to prove me wrong once again and the black opinions will stay, proving me right, thus proving me wrong.

Black FTW. Ive played both systems and felt black was more me and professional. It was almost as if the blue looked a little tacky but maybe Im biased as I had pre-ordered a black before trying either system.

I've ordered the blue one because the black one will show up too many fingerprints. Inside of the top screen will still show a few though :(

I've always thought Nintendo released their handhelds in his and hers for some reason.

So blue is the one I'll likely get my girlfriend and black is the one I'm getting myself. The other way would just be weird.

If its a nice blue colour, blue's definitely what I was gonna go for - but if it's the turquoise colour (bluish green) then noooo.

The blue does seem really nice in this trailer:

and again here the blue looks fine:

this is such a hard decision ;_;
