Official DS redesign
I finally caved in and bought myself a Nintendo DS, just in time to get the new sexy redesigned DS Lite slapped in my face. It hurts. Now I really want a Nintendo DS Lite ... really, really badly.
According to this post on Kotaku, Nintendo Japan announced details of the new redesign today. The "Lite" in the name indicates that Nintendo's new portable console is lighter -from a weight point of view- and features four levels of brightness. So to summerize and to twist the knife in the wound a little deeper ... compared to the regular DS, the DS Lite is slimmer, has a brighter screen, weighs less and just looks a lot better.
It will hit Japanese stores at the beginning of March for $145; details about the UK and US releases are yet to come.
Now if Sony redesigns its PSP anytime soon, I will just slit my wrists.
