If I were to get one later, I'd get Cosmos Black.
The blue one doesn't actually look that bad.

It's not as bad as the DSi's blue.

DSi XL's blue was nice, though.

Sony is always black though, unless you mod them.

3DS Virtual Console Will Be Available on Launch Day

UPDATE: Or will it?

There's been plenty of confusion lately about the launch of the 3DS's eShop, which will allow users to download DSiWare games, 3DS demos and more. At first we believed the store would be ready at launch, then Nintendo Japan's financial results claimed the 3DS eShop would launch in May. Now Nintendo America has clarified that at the very least the Virtual Console will be available on the console's launch day, according to an article by IGN.

    It's important to note that some of these features, most notably the Virtual Console/e-Shop idea, will not be available out of the box, but will need to be downloaded from a Wi-Fi connection. Nintendo has clarified that the Virtual Console will be available immediately upon the launch of the 3DS.

So far the only titles confirmed for the system's Virtual Console are Super Mario Land and Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX, but expect other titles to hit the shelves on launch day.

As with our world-beating Wii Virtual Console service, we here at Nintendo Life will review every single game released for the 3DS Virtual Console which, combined with our DSiWare reviews, creates an unassailable library of digital download review goodness. Nice.

UPDATE: IGN has since changed their statement about the 3DS Virtual Console being available on launch day in their "3DS Buyer's Guide" and now state that the service will indeed come in the form of a system software update in late May, as previously stated. Below is the snippet from their guide which shows the change. We apologize for any inconvenience this misinformation may have caused.

    It's important to note that some of these features will not be available out of the box, and will need to be downloaded from a Wi-Fi connection. Nintendo has revealed that a worldwide update, scheduled for late May, will enable some of this functionality, most notably the eShop (including the Virtual Console) and DSi-to-3DS data transfer. - 3DS Launch Guide (IGN)

This is nice to hear, though I'm sure I won't be using it at the start. I'd wait a few more months first...

Yeah, the older cartridges are like dead, no saving power left. And I'm doubtful about Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, though.

Why SML, of all things?

Get Contra Spirits JP ver. and I'll be happy. D:<

...on second thought, it might be better to get obscure titles, like, um, Mario Golf/Tennis GB? :p

Marth is not amused.

It's good to see the VC will be available directly on release. I really have to give Nintendo a lot of creait for making a next generation gaming system with advanced graphics in the year of 2011 that uses cartridges since that is bold move on Nintendo. I'm pumped since the 3DS' launch is very near. :P

Er, it seems that there is an update from the source I posted earlier, and I put it in my previous post. Here's the update I was referring to:

Wow, now I won't be trading in my DSi for more monnies towards it.

Oh well, at least I can keep all my games and stuff. :D

3DS Game Cases Look to be More Environmentally Friendly

Game booklets still the main culprit for overall size, it seems

A Japanese retailer has posted some images of what 3DS software boxes look like when opened up and it seems like there's not a hole lot of difference from the regular DS boxes.

Well, there are a couple of differences: the placement of the system logo is now on the right hand side of the cover, and the box itself has numerous holes in it so that less plastic is used in the manufacturing process.

The retailer also notes that the weight of the thinner 3DS game boxes come in at 45 grams, compared to the 53 grams that current DS game boxes weigh. It might not sound like a significant reduction, but that's roughly 15% lighter: considering how much software has been sold for DS, that's a potentially huge saving over the 3DS's lifespan.

Perhaps this is one step closer to getting Greenpeace off Nintendo's back? Either way, it still seems silly to have such a large case for a game cartridge that is so tiny: is it time to get rid of those game manuals?

Hm, I guess this isn't too bad, but no instructional manuals? Every games needs at least an instructional manual...
