Nintendo DS Lite is a lighter and brighter version of the highly successful Nintendo DS, which has sold more than 4 million units across Europe and 16 milllion units worldwide.

Nintendo's latest console includes all the existing features of the Nintendo DS, yet includes a variety of distinctive changes which truly sets it apart from other handheld consoles. Nintendo DS Lite retains the advanced touch screen technology, allowing players to control the software with a stylus or even their finger, as well as dual screens, voice recognition and Wi-Fi capabilities of the Nintendo DS but is now both smaller and lighter. Weighing nearly 60g less than the original, it is just two thirds of the original size. The redesign isn't only cosmetic though, the Nintendo DS Lite features adjustable screen brightness with four settings, a repositioned microphone for ease of use and a larger and more comfortable stylus. With its new design and unique features, this console is perfect for everyone regardless of age, gender and gaming skills.

  • The stylus is 1 centimeter longer and 1 millimeter thicker than the stylus of the original, and slides into a side storage slot.
  • The Start and Select buttons were repositioned for easier access.
  • A removable cover keeps the Game Boy Advance cartridge slot clear from dust and debris when it's not in use.

 BEST colour for BEST handheld console EVER!!!!!!

Arrived in three days and when i opened it WOW the shade of red was way better than i expected. Way better than Crimson ds colour. THIS IS FOR ANYONE OUT THERE THAT WANTS TO BUY A HAND-HELD CONSOLE. It's got a wide range of games that will keep you entertained for YEARS!!!. I had a PSP and got bored of it, THIS IS THE HAND-HELD TO BUY.

 A Gorgeous design, *Masterpeice*

This truly beautiful design is sleek and smooth. Its curved edges give the impression of a fancy car.
This is my personal favorate nintendo ds console colour. (But of course you get the colour that reflects your personality.)
The Actual console is fun and easy to use. Also, Its portability is practical as it is small and sleek without any untidy wires.
The buttons are perfectly structured to use with ease, the screens are big enough to see but not giant so they dont hurt your eyes.
All that is left to say is that it is faultless and it is my favorate games console.
Thank You For Reading. :)

 Great Console & Colour!

First of all i just want to say how nice the colour is, i was really expecting it to be an eyesore but its really eye pleasing and doesnt bother me at all, i think its the best looking DS their is!

If you like the look of the red one but are hessitant then dont be because it is alot better than you expect!

Lots of AAA+ titles already out on the DS, even more coming it has to be the best handheld since the original gameboy. I would get a case for it though as fingermarks and scratches will be more visable than on the white version.

Well worth it though!

 wait for the new one

Who wants the regular white DS when you can have red?! At first I was unsure was colour to buy but not many people have this colour as SOMETIMES shops have it sold out. When I brought it, they had to give me the display one because the others were all sold out!! It's a really unique colour for a games console and the DS itself is brilliant. The shade of red helps the screen stand out more and look a lot brighter.

Overall, it's very, VERY impressive! Buy!!! You'll regret it if you don't!
