    For everyone in the States, the Nintendo DS Lite started selling last night. Some may have it already, while others have not. In case you forgot, here is a friendly reminder. Check out the link to the New York launch at Nintendo World.

    So is the DS called lite because it's smaller or is it less powerful? Might sound like a stupid question, but I really don't know and the source is mostly pics without technical info...

    Its just a DS.... thats smaller. And I thought the original DS was uncomfortable to hold... this will be much worse.

    I hate when Nintendo does this stuff. Gameboy Light (pocket with backlight built in), Gameboy Advance SP, gameboy advance Micro, and now the Nintendo DS Lite. It makes the guys that get the original thing feel out-of-date but there's really no difference except size. Nintendo should get the design right the FIRST time, and stop this dumbass "maybe a little smaller will boost sales, and people will have to buy the exact same hardware all over again to stay up-to-date, and we don't even have to put any effort in the power aspect, PERFECT" thing.

    I had a regular GBA until about a year ago. It fit very nicely into my hands, better than any other gameboy. If it had a backlight, it would have been the perfect portable game system, ever.

    That's the one reason I hated my GBA. You could hardly see the screen sometimes and the light had to be near perfect.
