Hilarious. People in the thread yesterday were flipping out over this, everyone dismissed it as insanity.

Makes it less confusing for uninformed customers, but I kinda wanted the Smaller one.

This makes the choice super easy but damn. Unless they plan on releasing the regular version during the holiday season. Maybe there are to many original 3DS systems out there in stores and they want to wait for them to sell more.

Wasn't gonna get it anyway, the faceplates situation is lame though. So weird that in 2015 we're still getting significantly different console hardware releases across nations. Isn't the 2DS only in the west too?

Don't count on it.

It's now or never. I would bet America will never get the regular N3DS with faceplates.

just import one from the EU/UK/AUS/JP and use a gateway to get around region locking.

Wow that truly sucks for you guys :(

My New 3DS is one of my favourite pieces of tech ever, love the faceplates.

A storm needs to start under NoA's ass over this.
