This review is from: Nintendo Handheld Console 3DS XL - Pikachu Yellow: Limited Edition (Nintendo 3DS) (Video Game)
Before ordering I was aware that you don't get the charger with this console so please buy one at the same time if you do not already own a newer Nintendo DS with the light grey colour charger. I'm not even a Pikachu fan but we all love this - Firstly, when I ordered it, for some reason I just expected it to be a yellow console so it was a genuine surprise to have the Pikachu face on it. With the inner being white this is an absoloutely stunning console with no reflections off the casing to distract you from your gaming. My daughter is 9 - She loves it, I'm a big kid at 43 and I love it too! Besides, if you ever get bored with it, you can always buy a sticker skin of your choice off eBay. Once switched on, The 3DS XL console is also a fabulous product. It's easy to set up to your preferred settings and comes with some fun pre-loaded games. Essentially, the same but bigger! To summarise, if you're stuck for a colour, go for this one :-)

Can't see any mention of what colour the interior is, what surrounds the screens - as the hinge is white I guess the colour inside is white?

This is what put me off a bit - Nintendo said when they issued the original 3DS - they made the surround around the 3D screen black as this made the 3D easier to see - not sure about that, and we ended up with dual coloured insides unles we bought the black 3ds.
I wondered what it was like to play with a totally white inside, as no one mentions it, I guess its acceptable or not noticable.
I have a blue 3dsXL and I do like the matte black interior, I don't 'notice it' while playing.

I've now played with this console with my favourite Professor Layton since Christmas and everything about it is fabulous. To be honest I can't see any difference with the interior being white in fact if it was a dark colour it would probably detract more from the gaming experience. I wpuld definitely recommend this colour scheme :-)
