    I find it ludicrous that Nintendo manages to put out all these DS Lite colors and is still unable to come out with even one new Wii color.

    My friend is getting this color to replace his hinge broken phat ds... And like usual, he's gonna rub it in my face even though I don't care what color it is. Though it is annoying so I guess that's why he does it. I don't see any reason to BUY ANOTHER ds if your old one isn't a phat(meaning you want a smaller DS) and like better brightness or maybe if you have a broken hinge.

    Agreed. I mean, even the Gamecube had black, purple, and silver. Here we are coming on two years and still plain ol' white? Why, even mockups had ones like black, ugly green, and red!

    I still won't get a Lite. Though if I were, Crimson/Black would probably be the winner.

    Ha, who needs silver when you have the GOLD Zelda DS lite?

    And who cares about Wii colors, it's not a handheld so it doesn't really matter. Besides, all consoles eventually turn to one color: dust.

    To replace an old DS would be okay, but I see no reason to upgrade simply because of the color.

    I already got my hands on one, and I'm not too impressed...It's silver on the outside, but the inside is in plain grey, for whatever reason. To be honest, it's fugly as hell and I'd never buy one. I prefer a color that doesn't distract me from playing, like white.

    I heard over that around next year as demand settles/drops they will release other colors, I never had a desire to own a white console system, even with my computers I try to get black.

    As for the DS, why can't they just release a clip on covers and just go to town with the colors of the covers. I still love my onyx black, only if the surface around the buttons didn't wear down and change from a textured black to a glossy black from using it soo much [​IMG]

    lol Europe has had this one for a while (since last year!)

    And we have pink, green, red and blue.

    This is probably the best thing Europe will ever get gaming wise though...

    Order online...Usually costs the same as a new DS Lite in Australia anyway, ~$190-200.

    I've had that silver one for a year now, I don't even notice the colour, since a silicon case/crystal case is on it all the time. But yeah, I was planning on grabbing some cases from DX and mix'n'matching. [​IMG]
