The Nintendo 3DS Now in Ice White

Posted on Oct 7 2011 - 1:10pm by Robert

If you aren’t sure what to get that gadget lover in the family (or yourself) for Christmas then you might be tempted by the latest Nintendo 3DS offering.

The rather cool looking Ice White Nintendo 3DS will hit the shops of Japan at the beginning of November and is expected to reach UK consumers very shortly. It is all white on the outside and when you open it up the top half is black and the bottom half is white.

The device joins colours such as Aqua Blue, Flame Red and Misty Pink in the range and could prove to be a hit with festive shoppers in the coming months.

The 3DS model arrived in the hands of British gamers earlier on this year and while comments have been mixed and sales have been relatively poor there are plenty of people who are huge fans of the 3D gaming environment it presents.

A Million Flame Reds in Europe

It remains to see whether this is the solution to the poor sales figures for the Nintendo 3DS and whether it will encourage more buyers to take a chance on a bit of 3D fun. Certainly the Flame Red model recently broke the 1 million European sales barrier but we will need to wait a bit longer to see whether the white and pink versions become hits or not.

As regards the price, the Ice White comes with the same price as the other colours so this won’t be a deciding factor for anyone. If you want a 3DS it is a simple matter of deciding whether you want one which you run the risk of losing in the snow or not.

Does the range of coloured 3Ds models tempt you into buying a Nintendo 3Ds or does it not make any difference to your opinion on the device?

    Oh, my goodness. If it wasn't such a waste of money, I'd swap out my Aqua Blue one for this. I'd be so pretty next to my white PSPgo and MacBook and such. That and when the Wii U was announced as white I jumped for joy. I have this thing for shiny white electronics.
