    My sister should have waited to buy this red color, I've seen it, it looks better than the other two.

    Yeah, I remember seeing that before it was released. Looks pretty cool.

    this was why I was hesitant. I already have a black DS... and the aqua just looked odd.

    This would be something I would buy... though I must say I recall they had a Purple one at E3.


    and I would TOTALLY wait for that one if there were a hint or whisper.

    I would stay away from this model of the 3DS right now. It was just confirmed that there is a second analogue stick peripheral coming out. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a 3DS lite after this.

    That's what's sad. If they don't get a 3DS model with a built-in analog stick before the Christmas shopping season, they will have lost sales once again, this time people waiting on an updated version.

    Even if the rumours aren't true, and even if they only plan on keeping it as a peripheral if they were, it won't stop the rest of us from thinking they're lying and going to release an updated version anyway.

    I encourage someone to submit an article to Bulbanews about this new 3DS model. I'd do it myself, but I'm out of time.

    Well, there isn't a "new model", just an attachment that gives the console a second analogue stick.

    Looks pretty ugly tbh xD

    I did a quick google after posting; I wholeheartedly agree. I need to go to bed now but if you (or anyone else) can get a draft out I'll publish it in a few hours before I go to class.

    Done. It won't let me upload a picture though, so can you add one in?

    Sources if anyone is interested:

    Nintendo Adding Second Circle Pad "Expansion" to 3DS - DS News at IGN
    What the Heck is Nintendo Thinking? - Nintendo 3DS Feature at IGN
    ScrewAttack - Something Original... Every Freakin' Day

    It still is pretty much rumours at the moment but the fact that the magazine was Famitsu prety much confirms the peripheral. I'm a little annoyed by this but happy that Monster Hunter is on it's way to the 3DS.

    On the box in-store this was called "Flame Red". However, it is possible that this is a regional name difference. Has anyone (other than Australians) seen this in-store, and if so, is it "Flame Red" or "Flare Red"?
