    The best would be crimson black or the blue black one.

    That kind of question is really subjective. People don't like the same colors every time and some shops propose special housings (at least, mine does ...)

    If it's an official colour, I'd go with Onyx.

    If you're going all out custom, I'd pick a matte black case with red shoulder buttons, stylus and buttons. Perhaps even highlight the logo on the top case in red too.

    But that's just me

    For your consideration: Unless it's matte, only the lighter-colored housings would be less fingerprint-magnetic. And trust me. A DS without fingerprints all over it looks awesome.

    Also, if you're getting just the housing, then it's easier to make your DS look like you shelled out the extra money for a special edition like this or this (not necessarily those, as those were just examples I found via google). However, most of the housings that you can buy like that are lighter-colored.

    I naturally think the DS Lite is a gaudy looking piece of hardware, but I prefer the white one over all other variations.

    dont worry i would buy a New Crystal Case to protect it and to be less finger print magnetic...
    i like those kind of housing too with the Kingdom Hearts Design...but i think i would still go for Crimson Black or Cobalt Blue Black because it is more common and easier to find in the shops...

    Oh, so you're looking for one in a physical shop. I don't think the ones with special designs on them can be found in shops.

    Yeah, I'd just go for a plain color.

    I also have one. I think they used to be special edition, but the demand for one rose quickly enough that it was made normal edition to the point that it was the only one anyone could find. Maybe 3 or 4 of my friends have the same exact DS and actually had to go buy decals for them so we could tell them apart when we did some multiplayer and set them down for a while to just go do something else in the meantime.

    Waving to black people in the hood in my car.
    Try getting a color that is bright and easy to see, like blue or silver. If you misplace your ds it would help you find it.
