Thread: Nintendo DS Lite Redesign

  1. #1
    a couple of weeks ago, Hong Kong based online retailer Lik-Sang claimed that Nintendo planned to announce a redesigned Nintendo DS on January 16th, 2005. this claim was met with denials from Nintendo's American & European branches.

    NOA: "we have nothing to announce at this time."

    NOE: "pure rumour and speculation."
    http://www.joystiq.com/2006/01/16/ni...s-ds-redesign/

    January 16th passed uneventfully. 10 days later, this popped up on Nintendo Of Japan's website:
    http://www.nintendo.co.jp/n10/news/060126.html

    Lik-Sang got ONE DIGIT wrong in their date. the announcement happened on January 26th, rather than January 16th.

    note to Nintendo: nice move, slick. way to piss off the customers who went ahead & bought the old design between the 16th and the 26th, based on your official "a sexier new model is not going to be announced soon" bullshitz.

    That sucks for all the people who bought a DS within those 10 days... way to go Nintendo..

    So the new DS is going to look like this?



    It looks pretty neat...

    yep. pretty difficult to see what the actual difference in size will be, but i suppose it will prolly be less thick than the old DS. if this means people or stores are going to start getting rid of the old DS at lower prices, i guess i might be interested in that. the new one looks good, but i just don't wanna pay $100+ for a handheld console.

    and according to that Nintendo Of Japan announcement, the DS Lite is scheduled to go on sale in Japan on March 2nd. not sure when it will arrive in the rest of the world. prolly soon afterwards, if not on the same date.

    Hmmm... it might be a while before it hits the US...

    There have been so many pictures of the DS redesigned... like concept pictures... it's nice to finally (sort of) see what it'll really look like...

    Some I've seen actually look pretty cool, like this one:

    and this one:

    It'd be cool to see people selling the older ones for less than $100 bucks... it'd actually consider getting one...

    EDIT: Hmm... less bulkier?

    Fucking nobs. I bought a DS at the weekend. Wankers wankers wankers wankers wankers...

    I should be able to take it back since most shops have a 9 or so day no quibble returns... But the new one costs more, may not be able to use flash carts I want to buy, and its March.
