I have one of the new red & black Nintendo DS Lites, the one packaged with Brain Age 2, and since I've never owned a DS Lite before, I don't what to think about a couple of issues I'm having. First, the directional pad is not as responsive as my original DS. If I press a direction like up and then move my thumb to press diagonally, sometimes still registers the movement as up until I over compensate. I almost have to stop pressing up a little and then press diagonally instead of rolling my thumb right or left. Also, if I press the directional pad in a clockwise motion, I can hear and feel a clicking in the pad. This doesn't not feel smooth or normal. Second, I was playing the new Tingle game and I noticed the whole screen gets a shade darker when the screen scrolls. For example, when you move Tingle left or right, the background scrolls, and the black edges of the trees and bushes all "ghost" a little, making the screen get a tad darker while moving. I tested this in my original DS and there is no noticeable difference in the background when the screen scrolls. If anyone else has a red & black DS, can you confirm these issues? Also, if you have a different color, are you experiencing similar issues?
