Genius Nintendo - Customizable Faceplates is a Good Move

Tonight, Nintendo has absolutely blown me away with its new 3DS models, dubbed ‘New 3DS’ and ‘New 3DS LL’. These models come with a wealth of new features, as well as some cool new aesthetic options for gamers. Have a look at the gallery for a huge amount of screens from the stream!

Personally I'm super keen for this. Between the new additions and the customisable faceplates, this is gonna be a great buy!

Fantastic news about the customisable faceplates. Finally people can have their own unique 3DS.

No longer are we going to have to dread when they release special edition Zelda systems or Yoshi systems...make it a faceplate and you're golden.

The color of your 3DS still plays a role. Otherwise a faceplate would look odd if designed with a special color in mind.

They already had custom faceplates in Japan. The only one I saw of which was the Monster Hunter faceplate. Good to see the concept finally coming to America.

I'll wait for the "Super Duper New, this time really, 3DS double D". -_-

Then you'll complain when they release the newer system that will integrate with the home consoles, because you'll feel ripped off, because you decided to wait too long to get the older versions, and finally did so not long before the new one was announced, after close to 4 years of no substantial hardware upgrades.
Then you'll probably say they "owe you" a price drop or a special deal to "make it worth your while", when it was your choice to wait in the first place.

This is going to be an often-reported case from a vocal minority that waited too long.

I don't own a 3DS and are not really planning to buy one, but to release a new version every new year is not a good practice IMO. Now in particular as it will be able to play software the older models will not.

This "new version" is more than just a size and battery upgrade,v though; it's more powerful and has more control options.
