Well, the three basic colour plates solid red #18, Solid purple #19 and solid blue #20 have been this price for a while direct from Nintendo and its a fair price if your not into flashy plates. Looking around earlier release plate stock is starting to dry up a little, and this price is cheaper by enough of a margin to warrant a post i thought.

+ a lot of new3ds owners so they might not be aware you can get some decent plates cheap.

I've recently bought the #36 green solid colour set and they look great. These are well worth £5.99 each only problem is min order is £20 for free P+P so best to get all three and a cheap goomba (or other villain, well saying that goombas are ok. for stomping that is!:)) keyring of your choice to put you over the £20.

Heck the way plates are being discontinued you could keep your fave and sell on the other two at a later date.

I wish they would start doing these for the "New" XL model.

They sell the "Battery cover kits" which is technically just the bottom section so just give us the top section to!

Yeah, I agree. Its pretty simple to pop the top off. If they sell these they could sell us the top shell. I would spray mine buts its the Emblem Fates cover.

Pretty impressive looking bottom plates shame they didn't make the top changeable as well on the New xl.

I think it would be better just to have some special/limited edition themed consoles, without the need for plates. Does seem to reek of a money making cash in strategy to me. It is not like the designs for special edition consoles don't exist. There has been loads, but typically reserved for just Asia/US market. Europe seldom sees a special edition console of any significance.

I like the plates, Nintendo havent really pushed them that hard and there not a necessity. There's a good range and they needent cost the earth. (see above!) if they didnt exist we'd be stuck with inferior quality 3rd party coverplates and other options. People would still use them to customise there consoles. ltd consoles are usually just price gouged/scalped anyway but you are right about the numbers. Europe get very few decent ltd ed consoles.
