    So yeah.. Im getting the new upcoming Cobalt Blue nintendo DS. Sadly I found THIS page. When I saw it, I saw that it said "The unit is the same as the red and black DS Lite (and it does have a power switch!)" and I look at the picture and it doesn't! What does it mean. How will you turn it on then?

    Ps. If you want to buy one, you can pre-order at curcuit city's website

    maybe the power button/switch is in the same spot it was for the phat.

    but thats strange nonetheless.

    I highly doubt Nintendo would move the stylus slot and power switch. I'm no expert on factory assembly lines and injection molding, but if you ask me, it would be too costly for them to make a silly change like that. Not to mention how it effects third party accessories that are custom fit to the DSL. I'm with NonStopInTheMix. My money is on a graphic design goofup.

    You really don't get it? It was a joke, by Kotaku. They always play around..
    That picture was just a photoshop, and they were making fun of it..saying it WILL have a power switch, because the pic didn't include it. It's just a joke. Same DS, just different colors.

    Wrong section, dude. And what kind of DS has no power switch. It's obviously a joke, like Sailor said.

    Yep, yep. I don't know what's the appeal of the 2 separate colors, since the inside isn't even changed. I miss when they used to really change the color of their products..it looked inspired. Like the Onyx, Cobalt, Silver, and Red SP's...man, if they made a fully blue cobalt one I would be ALL over that.

    Wouldn't be that hard to do, I'd think. Wonder why they don't just do it..instead of keeping half of it the same o.O"

    Oh, and I never thanked you for Worms, very sorry :\
    Thank you! [​IMG]
