Nintendo Explains Why We Didn’t Get The White Nintendo 3DS XL

Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime has explained exactly why we didn’t get the gorgeous white Nintendo 3DS XL here in the West. Reggie says that when they launched silver and white-colored handhelds in North America they didn’t sell as well as expected, therefore Nintendo took the decision not to bring the white Nintendo 3DS XL to North America and Europe.

“We have launched silver- and white-colored GBAs, DSes, DSis, and in our [North American] market they don’t sell very well. So instead of approaching this lighter-colored product as a mass [product], we’re going to look at the opportunity on a much more limited basis. 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 in our marketplace and said that, for a handheld gaming device from Nintendo, that kind of white or silver doesn’t sell nearly as well as blue or red or even pink.”

    1. Yeah whites the weakest nasty color. My white ds got sunburn easly and age fastwr and it look slim.
      Also my white ds smelled like wet dkg and the browser to me to inbreding sites.
      I bougt a black ds cause no matter how lame that shitty color is everbody kisses their ass like moronz

    1. i mean if traditionally something doesnt sell why would you think it would sell in the future. just sayin its called business.

      1. It’s a good thing we now have the better looking black model (the model I chose for my Wii) as well as the “premium” black version of the Wii U.
        This also explains why “Ice White” never made its way to North American retailers.

          1. Not really a +1 when you see who’s might replace him. Last thing America needs is a backwards thinking, bible bashing, homophobic, racist moron at the helm.

              1. So what we do need is to go bankrupt? He was quoted saying the national debt was too high, but then increased in tenfold. Let’s have all the people that work and pay hard earned dollars to taxes so that people can get handouts. Sounds like a great plan. I’d like to keep my money thanks and be able to buy Wii U games, not so a poor person can use the aid to get an iPhone. –> Yes you can see that, people use food stamps at the grocery stores and are talking on their iPhone 4S.

                    2. hes leading in the poles. So its anyones game right now. Although obama will win simply because romney is not electable. hes too out of touch with real americans. AKA the 47% who need the government. even tho the states that rely most heavily on government money are republican states

                            1. Obama ruined this coutry we handouts. Change pufff the only change he meant was mnkies like politics. Funny how even apes love politics now that this caca is president. I heard one monkey say he wasnt black enough.

                                  1. Improve what he aint do shit. He did things cuz he black durrrrrr. If that monkey was white nobody would give to shits oh but since he a monkey we find him amusing. The idoit called europe a country oh no big deal he smoke weed nobig deal he has ugly transexual wife oh but shes black oh than never mind she cute durrr. Monkies only voting for him cuz hes caca and thats the truth caca sticks with caca. Im voting for mic becuase hes white got a problem than change your color sellouts

                                    1. I hope every person realizes that history shows that the first humans lived in Africa. Therefore we all come from the same country…

                                      1. God catch up with ARCHEOLOGY YOU DUMB ALE THEY FOUND BONES OLDER OLDEEERRRR THAN LUCY IN ASIA YOU STUPID KISSASS CHINK POWER BITCH LOOK IT UP DUMBASS!

                                      1. I don’t like this new direction Nintendo is taking…
                                        I’m holding back on buying a 3DS XL and preordering WiiU because I would rather take them both in white, not blue or black.
                                        I’m going to be disappointed in Nintendo if they are not going to publish a white version of WiiU deluxe. I don’t want to be forced to buy the casual white one with ridiculously limited memory.

                                            1. At first, it doesn’t make sense, but then you realize that what they mean is that they expect the core gamers to just hook up a really large external hard drive up to it anyways, and screw the internal 32 GB.

                                                1. I’m actually with you on this. I really do want a white WiiU deluxe instead of black. I just like the simple and clear look. This is one of the reasons (I have much more reasons) I’m waiting a year after WiiU launches.

                                                  1. Bullshit! I had a tough decision picking from the only 2 colors available I didn’t want! I ended up getting blue, if white was available at launch I would have got it instead.

                                                    1. Even more annoying than having a tough decision in getting a 3DS XL is the fact that Nintendo has launched the successor of 3DS within only 1.5 year later the original release…

                                                        1. Ask Mr. Reggie Fils-Aime about this issue. He will told you that 3DS XL is a successor of 3DS, not in terms of technology, but in terms of chronology.

                                                        2. While I like my blue one, I really, really wanted that awesome looking white one… The fact that it’s all the one colour was also a plus, never was a fan of the black inner surface on the original 3DS (the XL gets away with it though)

                                                        3. I got a white DS Lite years ago and you could see every little flick of dirt that got stuck in the cracks. Darker colors don’t look as dirty when they get dirty. This is probably why white/silver don’t sell as well.

                                                            1. You better watch your back at night a big black man is gonna come rape u while you are sleeping, but its ok because you can come here and finally proclaim your spot as being first.
