    Looks like Nintendo really does have a update of the DS coming soon (March 2 2006 in Japan). Sounds like new thing in it is its 4 stages of brightness. Im not too sure about the appearance of the new DS, but if I can play it in the sunlight, I may have to go pick one up.

    Don't ask me; all I know is I blew my budget just to get my DS after Christmas and I ain't buyin' another version of it unless it's five years from now and they've done something even more miraculous with the games or something... Besides I like my electric blue DS just fine and don't need multiple toned versions for my different moods. :ev:

    I'll stick with my normal DS.. I never buy any of Nintendo's "updated" handhelds.

    What is with Nintendo and these "updates" to portable consoles? Isn't the point of a redesign and an update to entice more people to buy it? It's not even getting an atractive redesign. It looks like a slightly slimmer DS. Charging more for it is not going to entice me to buy one at all. It's not like their adding anything extravagent to it, like bigger screens or anything. Oooh, you can adjust the screen brightness. Should have been there from the first one. Dumb.

    It's cool, but I don't need it. I mean, I had the original GBA and never upgraded to the GBA SP (I did end up with 2 SPs at one point, but I never bought it).

    I got a question though. When you open up the Lite, is it flat with the new hinge? That would be cool, so the pictures that uses both screens can actually line up nicer.

    I've found myself playing my DS quite frequently lately. Mostly the GBA slot though. I refuse to buy an "updated" version of a handheld I only use when I'm in the bathroom taking a shit.

    looks nice. It keeps the same basic form factor of the DS but makes it smaller and I'd assume brighter. Depends on weather or not it keeps the GBA slot though, as to weather or not I'll get it. Then there's hacking the firmware. Don't know if it'll be possible on the new one. It's already a pain to do on the red and blue DSs. (Fortunately I have classic silver)

    yeah, it really does have the revolution/ipod look. it's possible i might get one and my current ds could go to my 6 year old, depends on how good it looks in person.

    I really hope the term "cock off" doesn't spread any further than Indiana.
