I've always preferred black borders around screens because I felt it made it look nicer. Interesting how it has additional application here.
Sorry, what's this about a broken top screen? Tried looking through the forums for info, but not having much luck. We don't need launch systems breaking already!

Who is Corbs.
Anyway, yeah lighter colors are always distracting to the eyes. That's why I always preferred darker Game Boys and such, so that my attention wasn't drawn elsewhere.

It was a Japanese import, so I wouldn't be surprised if it got beat up in shipping to the US. Still...

The reasoning behind the black mounting around the screen was explained in an Iwata Asks interview somewhere, but thanks for adding your scientific observation Corbs.
Stop complaining and GO PLAY GAMES.

This 3DS I'm messing with now is my working 3DS. The original one I imported had a top screen that would not turn on at all. I sent it back the very day it arrived and my replacement 3DS came two days later. This is just a piece of glossy white cardboard paper. It's just laying on the 3DS screen, it's not attached to it.

I just went to put the 3DS in the blender and it printed out a $100 bill. The 3DS DOES print money!!!
I hope you were joking D:

One of the many reasons to have a black 3DS over a blue 3DS.

I knew the dragon would eventually catch me. Ah well, at least she didn't screengrab the incident.Or did she?

@AlexSays: Hey, long time no see! Anyway, Corbs is Corbie, of course. No idea why he changed it, really.
@warnerdan: Not really, because both of them have a black border around the top screen inside. As a matter of fact, it's a blue 3DS Corbie tested this with.

Yes, really. The Cosmos Black 3DS will accentuate both screens. Not just the upper 3D screen.

Plus that way it looks like an out of proportion CommanderVideo head when the top screen goes white.

I know I know, I need to not get out more. lol
And probably for the same reason I did back in the day. Because I thought it looked sexier and would help be pick up sexy young e-babes.

@warnerdan: Well, yeah. I'm going with the black for that same aforementioned reason. All my modern game hardware is black except for the Wii, as I was unable to justify losing several hundred dollars worth of downloads to change the aesthetics when they finally released the black version.
@AlexSays: It's about more than just not going out. You also have to come to NLife for it to count. I haven't been on here quite so much myself lately (though certainly not to the degree of MIA you have), because I've been busy actually playing my video games (concept! )" />.
@turtlelink: No, it doesn't, and shame on anyone who wastes highly anticipated gaming hardware with destruction like that.

Thought it made the background colors stand out a bit. LOL. OCD really.
Please don't joke around like that. I don't know if you meant it, but I have OCD and find that very offensive.

How is that offensive, exactly?
