DS Lite News and New DS Services

Now that the new, slim, hot DS has been announced, it's time for the details to surface. First off, news on the colors. As of now, there are 3. They're called crystal white, ice blue, and enamel navy (left to right in the picture). I think that's a slight mistake. They should have put in a black and red, but that's just my opinion. I don't see why they should have a white, a white blue, and a blue, I mean, c'mon, mix it up a little. Anyway, all in all, I think the navy looks the best. Ok, on to more news. Well, another new feature of the DSL is that it will have 4 brightness settings for the screens. I think that's a pretty good idea since you can keep it relatively bright but not drain the battery as much as full blast. Also, some horribly bad news. It's really terrible. Absolutely horrifying. Gut-wrenching. Worse then not having pickles in your shoes. It's THAT bad. Ok....Game Boy Advance cartridges....Oh man I can't bear to say it....They will....stick out.....1 CENTIMETER from the DSL!!! I think I'm going to cry.....Seriously. I think it would be best to get off the topic seeing as I don't want my keyboard wet. Now for some goodie goodie news for any DS. First up, game retailers nationwide will soon install DS Download Kiosks at which you can download demos and/or videos of DS games, current and up-coming. Once you download them, you'll be able to use them as long as you keep the DS on. I wish they would just come out with a memory card for the GBA game slot (oh no I'm thinking about the bad news about the DSL again) so you could save the demos on there. It's not like the slot's in use anyway. Ok, finally, to the last part of this news update. Starting with Metroid Hunters and probably going to other games, you'll be able to chat online using the wi-fi connection. This isn't all that great though, seeing as you'll only be able to chat before and after matches and only to people on your friend's list. I don't know about you, but I don't have many people on my friend's list, which makes this suck for me. Well, that's all the DS news for now, but we'll keep you posted as the DS Lite gets closer.


  • i like the way those things look. i kinda wish i would have waited a little longer now. oh well, that technology. no matter what you get, you're always one step behind.
