    ...To buy a Nintendo 3DS. Damn straight.

    So I'm looking to get one of these along with the new Pokemon games. However, I am facing a dilemma... 3DS XL or regular 3DS and which color?

    Personally, I prefer the overall look of the 3DS XL despite being more expensive but they come in two colors, an exterior and interior one, as opposed to a single color. In this sense I prefer the regular ones but I still prefer the XL design.

    I didn't look too much at regular colors but XL colors include all black interiors with blue, red, and black outsides. One has a white interior which I much prefer over the black, but the exterior is pink. There are also some limited edition designs for the XL coming out soon with special Pokemon X & Y designs. You can check them up online but they come in two colors: blue and red, and have both legendary mascots on them. I can't tell what the interior looks like, but I suspect they're also black.

    Now at the moment I prefer the pink 'n white one (haters gonna hate) the most. However, if I ever chose to sell my 3DS, the limited edition would be worth A LOT more down the road compared to an ordinary version. However, I'm not sure if I would ever sell it even if I got the special version. If I did get it though, I'd get the blue one. If I go for neither the special nor the pink one, I'll probably go with the blue and black one although I could consider the all black one too. I'm not into the red ones.

    My sister also directed me to the possibility of buying special skins or decals for the 3DS so perhaps I should buy whichever one and grab some skins for a little extra cash.

    What does WSC think? Which one shall I choose, or should I go with the cheaper regular version?

    There are some images of the options in the following posts for you lazy bums.

    Extatica has the special Pokemon one up there. Here are the rest of the 3DS XLs that I'm considering. You can check them out on the Nintendo site as well.

    Does the pokemon one come with anything special? Either way, I voted for pink. I won't be satisfied until everyone has pink 3DS's. If the pokemon does come with something special, I say go for that.

    All it is is a special design related to Pokemon. Same price as regular 3DS XLs too.

    I also think that design is cool. I suggest choosing either the pink or pokemon one. (There should really be a pink pokemon one.)

    No matter what definitely go for the XL over the normal 3ds, way better in my opinion. I would go with the pokemon design version of the XL. Otherwise just go blue/black XD . If ya really want a different design you could put a decal on it later. Also, I'm getting Pokemon Y btw, we should all make a pokemon thread! :coffee:

    The Pokemon ones are also XL. I'm getting both because I can't choose between the two. XD

    Yeah. Don't buy the reg. 3DS. It feels nice at first, but after a while my hands go numb when playing M&L 4 for example. (pretty good game btw.)

    Also: The pokemon one. I'd buy the everliving <REDACTED> out of that if I didn't already have a 3DS.

    GAAAAHHH. The decision is soo hard!

    I'm thinking about buying two: the LE Pokemon blue one and a standard XL blue or pink one. It's pricey but my thinking is that if I prefer the other one I can sell the LE 3DSXL for a hefty sum down the line when they're not being made anymore. I can always buy or trade in a standard color for another color down the road as well if I don't like the original one I get.

    What do you all think?

    I'm more and more certain that I won't be going for the limited edition. It's cool to have a rare version of something and I pretty much only play Pokemon games on these devices which makes the design very appropriate but the design itself isn't really compelling to me.

    It'll probably between blue, black, or pink then.
