    Nintendo of Japan introduce two new DS colours

    Metallic Rose and Gloss Silver








    [​IMG]
    Nintendo of Japan have announced that the DS is to become available in two new colours - Metallic Rose and Gloss Silver. This is just a cosmetic change, and nothing else has been altered.

    Head inside the topic for a closer look at the two new colours.

    There are so many other colors they could have for the DS Lite...but they decide to give white and pink a metallic makeover. This is so weak. I'd like to see a blue or lime green....but these are OK, I guess. I wouldn't buy either of them.

    Wow, I'm all for metallics [​IMG] Metallic pink looks much better than that toxic pink shade they sell now. Not too sure about Gloss silver though, without a metallic finish surely that'll just look grey?

    Silver makes it look too much like the DS Phat imo. But at least they are getting some new colors, maybe now the US can get the Navy/Ice Blue ones? I've been holding off on getting a lite since I don't like any of the current color choices very much and hoping for something new.

    How many souls must one sacrifice to the nintendo gods in order to obtain such a bountiful gift of a beautiful color.

    the cat will watch shinji always

    that isn't the same as original DS silver, that one was flat silver this one is gloss. I'm guessing they used silver plastic (one would only hope) When nintendo paints stuff, that is just ignorant. It rubs off over time. One can make silver plastic, it isn't expensive.

    Maybe I'm just a classic black and white person... But these colour choices are all a bit.. Bleh. Guess they're good for the kiddies. I'd rather just get a coloured case or something.
