The Aqua Blue Nintendo 3DS. An odd color choice for the launch of a new gaming handheld, sure. However, we didn't think it was so bad that it was time to kill it. Regardless of what we think, though, Nintendo is set to put the Aqua Blue 3DS out to pasture soon. No specific date has been given, but with all the other 3DS colors that Nintendo's pumping out, we're geussing that the turquiose one has proven to be pretty unpopular in the grand scheme of things. Want one? Better get it while you can!

From the “yeah right, let’s see how long this lasts” department, we bring you the shocking news that Nintendo has no plans to offer their Wii console in any color other than white. In a quote found by online blog Codename Revolution, Nintendo’s General Planning Manager recently announced that, while Nintendo plans to offer their Wiimote in a variety of candy-licious colors, the Wii itself will not be getting the same treatment:

Still, with Nintendo’s least successful non-handheld consoles being offered in multiple colors (I’m looking at you, Gamecube and N-64), maybe Nintendo is on to something here.
