Here's the thing, though: is this a leak, or from the big N themselves? If it's the latter, you would think that they would try to make it actually look good before showing it to the public :?

Yeah but then there is the possiblity that the plastic the case is made of just sucks, like you get that yellow tint in any photo you take. There is also the fact that Nintendo might have just picked some third party to release it, yes I know it's not likely but still possible.

If it is released by a third party, I'm gonna go sulk in a dark corner.

Guys...

Guys...Nintendo hasnt been coming up with too many "awesome" ideas. The GBM...bad remake, it is so small it feels akward when playing it. Then this? All it is, is a new design, with a brighter screen (great! more seizures) and some buttons moved around. Nothing too great!
PS3 sucks...

eh, it's probably just the lighting, or the fact that it's a prototype...come on guys, it's NINTENDO! though they may have WAY to many rereleases of systems, they sure do know how to make 'em. expect the system to be nice and at least mostly shiny ;).
Without games my life would have no meaning.
Well, I guess it would, but it would be a lot less fun!!!!!!!

I'm not worried about the looks of it. Nintendo always puts that first on the list.

I still like the old (not really old, but old-er...) version. It dosn't look so....cheesy as this does. If they upgraded the LCD's to what that new GBA SP uses, I might just change my mind. Those screens are b-e-a-utiful.

The browned-up look reminds me of what game-&-watches look like nowadays.
