I was just at Wal Mart, and I saw the DS Lite! I also read the Nintendo Power Magazine there, and it said it was supposed to be released today! Yay! The DS Lite is now out!

It's not fair that peopl who buy a DS now will get all the new stuff at the same price that we got are old version.

I just bought one!


^_^ Thats right kids! It looks really awesome! And I even compared it to my Brother's DS screen, its about 4 times brighter. If anyone has like...questions about it or something, you can PM me.

I'm still having trouble understanding how remakes of handhelds, like the DS Lite, sell so phenomenonly well, at least in Japan. I mean, look at the Gameboy Advance SP; I believe that it sold more than the normal Gameboy Advance, and people that owned the normal GBA bought an SP... The same thing is happening with the DS Lite. People in Japan who already had a normal DS fought others to get their hands on a Lite... I don't know, this is kind of beyond me.

I understand that Nintendo is making these remakes because they sell so well, but I think they should at least improve the hardware somewhat. The brightness levels aren't worth another $130, in my opinion, if you own a normal DS. If the person who's getting a Lite doesn't own a normal DS, then that's fine... But I really don't understand how people can be hyped over basically the same system with a few tweaks when they already have the same system; it just looks differently.

Perhaps if Nintendo added a built-in Opera browser into the DS Lite then maybe it would be worth that money, although that's still debatable... I hope Nintendo doesn't continue to remake their handhelds without any hardware changes...

I know that I'm not getting a DS Lite because I already have a normal DS, and I don't see why I should spend another $130 on basically the same thing, with just a few cosmetic changes...

Bul, that's exactly how I feel. Everything you mentioned I would've mentioned. Why is Nintendo doing this? These...these remakes of pefectly fine systems. GBA > SP, ok the Lite may be a little better than the DS, but still...Nintendo shouldn't be doing this...it's too much of a risk.

...I agree with you, but I know a bit of why people (like me) buy the, what I like to call, "the re-runs".

Because eventually, everyone will have them. Then the people who don't have them are going to want them too. Thats the way I see it.

Another example is the Pokemon Crystal and Pokemon Emerald versions. They are both re-runs of the previous games. Well, what can we say? Nintendo likes Re-runs. :wacko:

But I completely understand your way of thinking Bul, and PKMN.

Pokemon is a game, sytems are different. You can be a big time Pokemon fan, but it&#39;s practically impossible to be a "system" fan. See you don&#39;t even use the word system fan. It&#39;s not natural...

As an owner of the DS and the DS lite, I will say this: The DS lite has a brighter screen, and looks 100% cooler than the regular DS. Plus, I hear if you buy...

@PKMN- Its not really a "system fan"...I guess in a way its more like an "overly overly overly obsessed Nintendo Fan" :lol:
Not true. A Nintendo fanboy just has to be a big fan. You don&#39;t need to have a remake of a system. Why in the first place did they release a DS, when they were releasing a Lite later on? Nintendo should stop and start making new systems.

Uhhh...PKMN, I know that a Nintendo fanboy just has to be a big fan. Thats why I said "overly overly overly obsessed Nintendo fan". For instance, they are so obsessed that they buy every system and every game Nintendo ever releases.

So, whoever has a Lite is a bigger fan than me?

Do you have a SNES? (i&#39;m talking to people with lites)

Grawr
06-12-2006, 08:14 AM
Yeah I have a SNES. But just because the people with the lites are obsessed, it doesnt really mean they are more of a fan than you. I should have just said "Overly overly overly obsessed with Nintendo" and not "Overly overly overly obsessed Nintendo fan". You can be obsessed with Nintendo, and still not be as big of a fan as some other kid. Obsession is different from being a fan...in very few ways. :yes:

Well, thats not entirely true in my opinion. If you watch the videos that Shadow linked to us, you will see that the DS lite screen is really bright and brings out more color than the original DS. So we are using common sense. We (people with DS lites) happen to think that a brighter screen, and more comfortable feel is worth 130 dollars. So don&#39;t say we arent using common sense, because thats not true. We just think differently than you do, thats all.

So it looks better, big deal. Didn&#39;t you hear about that guy that stuck that thing into his GBA slot and his DS got reconized as a lite, so he had 4 brightness settings? Its bright enough for me already. The guy in the video even said the last setting its so bright it might kill you, so why do you need a brightness setting too bright to see? its just a waste of money.
@Avenger for you, its ok

Playing your DS out in the sun can be annoying. I think the DS Lite looks cool.

That&#39;s why you use the brightness level thing. If you have it at 4 while playing outside it looks exactly like a normal ds would inside.

Would you anti-DS lite people calm down? Jeez, WE (koehler, myself, Odd, and others that like DS lites) think that a cooler look and a brighter screen with 4 levels of brightness sounds fun. You disagree, and thats O.K., but watch what you say, alright? Please explain your opinion without saying things like "it sounds stupid" or "Buy the new DS lite so you can play outside >_>" because your pretty much just trying to start arguments. We think the DS lite is a great idea. :yes:
