Tiny Cartridge 3DS

We have launched silver- and white-colored GBAs, DSes, DSis, and in our [North American] market they don’t sell very well.

Nintendo of America president Reggie FIls-Aime explains why there’s no white 3DS or 3DS XL in the U.S. yet. It’s hard to believe this is true, but he would know Nintendo portable sales data better than I would!

The White 3DS XL really is a beaut:

Reggie added, “You might see a limited-time offer with a white or silver 3DS XL, or we might colorize it slightly differently. But in terms of an ongoing SKU, the consumer has responded … white or silver doesn’t sell nearly as well as blue or red or even pink.”
