    Just letting you know that I recieved the g6 lite english version today and it came with white, ice blue and BLACK lite cases, and 1 white GBA case. no Navy blue. I got a ds ice blue so it's ok.

    But I definately have black. I think the colors are random or something! Report on colors you recieve and we'll see =)

    I really like the idea of swapping ... too bad I only received the white DSL and white GBA cases.

    However, if anyone out there gets a navy blue case that they don't want/need, I'd be willing to Paypal some $$$ for it!

    Not to doubt you, but are you positive it's black and not navy blue? I thought mine was black too (got my english G6 Lite today too) till you look at it in a BRIGHT light, then I realized it's just a very, very, dark navy blue.

    Here's a pic of mine:

    Yeah Navy Blue is really dark, but when you put it in a Black DSL you will see that its not black at all.

    Just look at it in clear light and you see its blue/purple.

    I've taken a look again, and I've read your other post Topsy, so made sure before I even wrote this post, and yep, it's black [​IMG] I don't have a navy/black ds lite to compare with but I have looked at it closely under direct desk lamp light and it is still black black, no hint of blue/purple whatsoever. I'm sure someone will post to confirm a black case shipped with theirs.

    Maybe it depends on where you get it from. I hope I get a black cover

    testicule, I bought from divineo.cn.

    and XxMxVxPxX, it is the arvo now in Japan, and here in kofu, the sun is as bright and the day is as hot as ever, and in direct sunlight it is still as black as it can be. If the nintendo are selling this color as "navy", then someone in their department must be color blind...

    Picture of case next to black phone, black leather wallet and dark navy fabric. It doesn't look dark navy cause the sun is shining brightly on everything here, but the case is still black.

    I just ordered mine today from Divineo.com. I expect to see it as soon as two weeks from now, maybe a little longer. I'll let you know what I get when it arrives.

    the g6 company did NOT SHIP BLACK CASES. it is navy blue. i thought the same exact thing. think what you want its not black. put it in a black lite and youll see the diffrence

    Yeah, look back at said pic, it's definatly black. Wish I had gotten black instead of navy, but it doesn't matter since I have white at the moment.

    Maybe they didn't ship a black one TO YOU but mine is as black as the ace of spades. Msg me and you can have it for the cost of shipping. Besides, with your avatar/signature I figured you would buy a white one and give it pinstripes.
