I actually don't like the gold one tbh. The blue one is amazing, but I can't see why they wouldn't do a red counterpart :/
The original 3DS is considered "old" now, and Nintendo wants to latch onto the XL as it's main 3DS system. Much like how despite all of the DS systems, the DS lite is the one that received the most special editions and other promotional stuff.
I personally think the XL is ugly, and the extra screen space isn't worth the loss of mobility (you'd need some big hoodie pockets or jeans with deep pockets, to say the least)
aaaaaaaaahhhh I would kill for either one of these but I'd really much rather a physical copy of the game. If they are announced to be released here I definitely will consider purchasing either though, they look incredible.
The latest versions of anything are the ones that gets the attention, and in the end phasing out the earlier ones, so there's no reason to be surprised. The original 3DS is phased out.
I'm really interested in the blue one, but the fact that it got XY pre-installed puts me off since I'm already planning to get the retail ones. Hmm, can it be deleted?

The blue one is just beautiful. The gold one looks tacky as hell.

Dang it, I need money, now so I can get the gold one.

The gold one is quite nice, as is the blue.
Im not a huge fan of the XL and don't really need another system, and I don't need a pre-installed copy of X/Y, as I prefer physical copies of Pokemon games. I think I'll pass on this, but it does look pretty awesome.
If given the option, I'd choose the Gold model, but seeing how exclusive it is in Japan, it's doubtful we'll get it here in the states. The Blue model is a solid consolation prize, but seeing as how the games will assuredly be pre-loaded, I don't know if I'll pull the trigger or not. I mean, I do need to get a 3DS, as I currently lack one, but I want physical copies of the games, and I don't want to pay for the digital copy AND a physical copy.
It look AWESOME. I should get ittt
I find the colors of the blue one particularly colorful. I don't really have an opinion on the gold edition though, because I haven't bothered to take a good look at it. Besides, I'd rather have a red version of the system instead of gold, since I feel that red and blue suit X and Y better than blue and gold.
