Sigh... IGN and Gamespot agree it's out in the US (white only) on June 11th, but they don't agree on price. IGN says $130, Gamespot says $150. Anyone know who's right? Heaven forbid Nintendo put info up on their own website....

Edit: Gamespot was wrong. It's $129.

Any reason to wait for another color to come along?

Depending upon which color DS you have it will unlock a secret character in an yet unnamed text based game coming to the DS sometime in 2008. While details are sparse at this juncture Shigeru Miyamoto was touted to reveal at his recent 45th birthday party "Dogu Shiitu Princess Peach!" (his words), which indicates a possible Donky Kong character may be unlocked.

Otherwise no difference between the colors other than personal preference.

Every time you post, I think you're someone else...someone disturbed.

Thanks for the heads up.

Any news on when other colors are arriving?

Me too smile
Actually I got bored of it after a week and a half and gave it to my girlfriend.  She loves the brain training games and the new tetris game though!

Sounds like a brown DS would unlock something most special.

With the temptation growing to buy a DS, should I go ahead and get the original, especially since it's cheaper, or wait for the Lite?

Can the people who imported the Lite and played the original comment on the advantages/disadvantages of the two?

The original isn't currently cheaper, though I wouldn't be too surprised to see a drop, depending on how much stock is out there.

I disagree, more options are always better than less options. Besides, most places will probably have some sort of trade-in promotion where you get extra value for trading in your DS towards a Lite.

From everything I've read, the DS Lite is far superior in almost every respect.
