A bit expensive

Looks ugly. I already thought the 3DS XL was ugly, but this makes it worse.

Terrible design, back in the GBA days LE systems looked slick.

I wish they'd come out with a design that would be see through plastic similar to what they used to do for the GBAs back in the day. The one I remember the most was like a blue tinted GBA that was only slightly opaque and you could see the insides of it. I'd post a pic but my button doesn't seem to want to respond :-\

I heard white edition and was intrigued, clicked the thread, saw the design, lost interest.

I think I'll have to custom my 3DS with a decalgirl skin or something.

Looks ugly. So is this a region free 3DS?

It's not bad, but that Persona Q and SMT IV 3DS were more badass that were released in Japan.

Doesn't look that bad, looks fine to me. Wouldn't trade my Pikachu XL for it though.

Still hoping that they'll release something like this in different colours one day. I don't particularly like the range of 3DS games, but I'd like to get this as a collector's piece. I used to have a bunch of transparent GBC shells back in the day.

That Mario design looks kind of tacky, sort of like those stick-on tattoos you find at amusement parks.

I knew you were talking about the GB Light before I even clicked the link =P. I have two of them sealed somewhere in the attic. The other one has an Astro Boy design on the front :) You can still find them crop up on eBay or some lesser known Asian sites now and again, but they're ridiculously expensive. I was planning to get a transparent shell molded for my NES at some point. I should get back to that xD.

I just got mine yesterday. I love it so far. On the box it says "Singapore/UAE model". It runs on US firmware and uses US store of course. Did my system transfer and I have been playing the crap out of pokemon X on it. If anybody has questions in regards to it, feel free to ask. I got mine through play-asia btw.

why Nintendo loses respect, they just keep pumping out cheap money pit grabs... I think most Nintendo hardcore fans own more versions of the DS/3DS/whatever it's called now than they own games. Just buy a sticker set and plop Mario's race on your old junky 3DS. How many versions of the same system can a person own? 3DS XXL, XLLX, NXL, NZXLL+, 4DS HD 3D + XkLsLX.2.3.5

I hope they release more special editions. I like collecting. Every gaming company has multiple editions of their consoles.

Glad to hear you love it. Be sure to get a clear crystal case to put on the back and front to protect the paint job from scratches. You can get them cheap.

Looks good on video. Are there any plans for a Gold 3DS XL yet? I'd buy that one if so.

I saw it and it looks nice. I'll have to remove that black cover and replace it with a white cover then find some way to cover up that Triforce logo. I could probably just paint over it or get a custom decal to go over it.

In all honesty, you'll be spending a pretty penny just to find a zelda 3ds xl. They're not impossible to find, but not exactly easy. You might be able to look on ebay or some 3rd party companies that make covers that you can replace the original with yourself. Just buy a basic blue 3ds for a black inside or a pink one for a white, and replace the shell yourself.

Dangit, they didn't have any cool LE 3DS designs when I got my XL, just blue, red, and pink.

Then they had the LE 3DS and 3DS XLs for A Link Between Worlds, the 3DS one looks better but the golden XL looks nice too. The Japanese got a cool looking Persona Q one. Meh, not worth buying a new 3DS for but still I look in envy. Maybe I should look into getting a cool decal if they have them.

Just get a special edition one. It's worth it. I might get a 3rd.

Is it that expensive now? I have one in the box unopened, I grabbed one after I saw how much the pikachu edition went up in price (still want a pikachu XL :( )

They're getting harder to find. Check amazon for brand new prices.
