    Maybe the housing is a non original found in site like dealextreme. The DS works right? There's no DS clones. [​IMG]

    It sounds like a DS to me.
    The only think I heard of that would kinda be a fake ds would be the Chinese ds called the iQue DS, but it's pretty much just a ds with a different name

    They are not very common, but they do exist. In fact, I haven't heard about a fake DS until today. The OP should check this site for a somewhat detailed overview.

    There is another kind of Chinese DS, namely a bootleg one.

    The last part of the video said that the games didn't fit in it. Do your games fit?

    I never have really heard of icey blue color dslite.
    The only one I have heard of is the baby blue one.

    So probably its a fake?!
