    A Limited Edition Zelda Phantom Hourglass DS Lite will be available to purchase in the UK.
    Along with the handheld, it comes with: Phantom Hourglass DS cart, DS power supply, two styluses, and a strap.
    Too bad the US and Canada won't be able to get there hand on one of these bad boys...
    Oh yeah, The bundle will cost GBP 129.99 (about US $264)!

    Looks sorta crappy to me. Like the pics were cheaply printed onto the ds. I'd much rather have the Pokemon one.

    yeah i agree, if it was gold like the gba sp limited edition zelda one i would buy it in a heartbeat, but a decal could do a better job, that's how bad it is tbh. £129 for this bundle is way too much aswell, i could afford it by trading in my black ds lite but it's not worth it as i don't like the silver DS lite.

    the bundle in america was way more better than this, that bundle had a red and black combination and it was not bad, this is just the silver DS lite which is already sold in the UK already with a cheaply printed zelda picture on top lol

    nintendo love to rip good old UK off, it's just the way [​IMG]

    Yikes! Those Zelda images can't possibly be any more generic.
    Jalaneme is right, the gold GBA was beautiful, this is terrible.

    Do you think the screens on these will be as bad as the Red & Black DS Lites in the US?

    Looks like a poor Photoshop job, I'll believe it when I see it. Think about the other limited nintendo hardware bundles, isn't stuff like this normally announced well in advance of the game's release date for preorders? Zelda is out in 5 days, I find it hard to believe Nintendo wouldnt've announced it by now.

    Of course, I've been wrong about stuff like this before...

    Ehh... It's not gold though. The GBA SP design should've been followed here.

    Ah, the gold SP edition. My cousin actually got that as a present and yeah, he lost it, cried a little about it and got another SP.

    I'm more particular to silver rather than gold, but in this case, the other one looks better than that silver one >_>

    If the prints were in gold and the DS was Onyx, things would look a lot better IMO

    The print needs work though, better images could be used.

    wow that the ds lite bundle is disappointing. it looks like it was a rushed just to make a bundle. they could have introduced a gold or silver DS lite with at least the triforce taking the place of the DS insignia in the middle. they could also make a little shadow of the ds insignia also with the triforce. it could be so much better. it's a cool idea though.

    A gold DS with a raised triforce in place of the DS insignia would have been really classy.
