I'm not going to say much about the 3DS itself. You can find reviews of it EVERYWHERE. I'm just going to tell you about the color. I picked up the Midnight Purple at a retail store (that starts and ends with T and uses a red bullseye logo) for the same price as the Aqua Blue and Flame Red models. I had put off buying a 3DS just because I hated both of those colors, but when I saw this one, I was sold instantly. When I opened the package, it was even more beautiful than I imagined. A glossy, shimmery black-purple so rich and deep. I think you would call it Royal Purple, but with a darker, iridescent undertone more the color of a concord grape. There's nothing to dislike about the color of this one. Unless you hate purple.

This review is from someone who has only owned a GBA and a regular DS in her life, in terms of portable consoles.
Starting easy with the color: It's a deep, glimmering purple. Very, very attractive color.
Onto the system itself. I am beyond impressed with this technology. Maybe it's just me but it's honestly the coolest thing I've ever seen, and I don't think people are as impressed as they probably should be! I show people when I have it on me and they can never say anything less than "Whoaaaaaa."

Approaching issues now.
"The battery life is short": Yes, less than three hours with the high settings. It's pathetic for a portable console. But honestly, there are fixes for every qualm you could have with this. Don't bother upgrading to a 3DS XL unless other aspects of it entice you besides the battery; for maybe fifteen dollars (EDIT Feb. 2013: the price has even gone down to ten dollars), just buy something called the Nyko PowerPak+. Look it up right here on Amazon. It replaces the stock battery and doubles your battery life, and also adds a nice grip to the console. Takes maybe two minutes to screw on to the console. It adds weight as well, but like I said, I owned a regular DS which was pretty heavy and I never really saw a problem with a console that isn't a feather. I like the feel of durability. I own the thing and it rocks.
Also, though ~3 hours is a little iffy, how long is it really practical to spend sitting on your 3DS? You don't need 9 hours in your typical day, so perhaps a shorter battery life will convince people to take a break and let it charge.
"The 3D effect gives people headaches": I spend a few hours a day on the games. I spent quite a few hours at first adjusting my settings and trying out the included extras.

I recently upgraded to the 3DS from the DS Lite and I must say, what a great upgrade! I wasn't sure at first if I would like the 3D effect, but I love it! It's really fun and cool looking on the game "Mario 3D Land." I highly recommend buying that game. It's very fun!

As for the color, Midnight Purple is very, very nice! In the picture Amazon has, it appears to be more of a fuchsia color. The actual color is a deep purple and it's very stunning in person.

If you're unsure about whether to upgrade from any previous DS, I will tell you right now, it's most definitely worth it! You won't be disappointed, I promise :-) Read the other reviews here on Amazon - that should help you decide!

First off, it arrived on time which is great. Its a purple 3DS!! YEAAAHHH!!! Anyway, it looks way better compared to the red and blue colors. I had a tough time deciding on this or the 3DS XL that comes out in August, but the color is what won me over.

Recommended for anyone looking for a nice color and the price wasn't to bad.

The 3ds midnight purple is just stunning and beautiful. The color of the ds has such a deep rich shinning purple. So glad i chose to get the midnight purple instead of the aqua blue. Everything about the sytle is just perfect. I have no doubt about giving it a 10.

The graphics are pretty good as well even though it tends to have some jagged edges on some of the games, but you probably wont pay much attention when you turn the 3d on. I give it a between a 8(1/2) & 9. The sound is also pretty good although is slightly lower than i wanted.I give it a 9. The grip is just great to me no problems here, but if you have big hands you might want to save for the 3ds xl. I give it a 9. The buttons feel just great also. I give it a 9. Oh and for the worser problems. the batter life. -_- ughhhhh! i hate it basically. only about 3 hours with the 3d on full blast. I will just have to wait until the Nyko power grip pro comes out in around octomber i think. Sadly I have to give it a 4. Being so pretty has a price. Any where you touch it leaves finger prints on the glossy surface. It is also highly attarted to dust. I am always scraping dust out the edges. Some i cant even reach. Once they send me back the new ds from repair, i will be prepared with a case and screen protector. I give it a 5

My only main problem i recieve was the loose hinge. Nooooooooo -_-. I was so hoping the midnihgt purple would solve that problem like it did with everything else. I had to send it in to get it fixed. So glad it is free. beside that i have no other problems with the system. Oh and for the stylist i have no problem with taking it out the back of the system. i give it a nine. Overall i give the system a 9. i hope my review is somewhat helpful to those that are looking into buying this system. ^_^
