Nintendo, finally.. starts looking good

The Nintendo gameboy has been around for over a decade. I remember getting it for christmas one year and playing through the entire Mario in one day. Tetris was forever immortalized and the cord connected matches with my sister was unreal. many generations later, the gameboy gained color, backlighting and finally a dual screen, including on which has touch control. the games have also evolved and make use of the microphones, the touch screen, the gyroscopes... and who knows what else. the newest in the gameboy series is the DS lite. the lite, is smaller and lighter than the original dual screen, hence the name.. it comes in 3 colors, white, blue and light blue, and plays older GB advance as well as the new DS games.
i've never given much thought to the older DS because it just look chunky and poorly designed. sure, the games are tons of fun, but who cares when the screens are not as big as the PSP and the form factor looks a bit like a makeup box. with the new "lite" design, it looks sleeker and the corners are streamlined. the closure is flush and the overall package is awesome. i'm thinking about it...
with the introduction of the new Mario Kart DS... it's just all too tempting. WiFi racing will never be the same again! [equipbug]
available March 2nd, 2006 (in Japan) for 16,800 Yen: [click to enlarge]
