Nintendo's re-design of their latest handheld. New features include:
- Smaller size - The DS Lite measures 133mm wide, 73.9mm high and 21.5mm deep at 215 grams in weight. This makes it 42% smaller and 21% lighter than the original DS. The screens are the same size.
- Four brightness levels, of which the brightest is extremily bright.
- Larger stylus
- Shiny future-esque finish available in White, Black, and Light Blue. These are the launch colors, and Nintendo will very likely release more colors as time goes on.
- Improved Wi-Fi capabilities (hardware only)
- Button layout change (Start, Select, Power)
- Region Free, as is the original DS
- Increased Touch Screen sensitivity
Other than the above revisions to the system, the DS Lite is essentially the same system. The same, except more addictive. Do not buy one of these unless you actually have the have time to waste. This little piece of awesomeness is notorious for eating up time like pac-man pigs out on pac-pellets.
This is made especially more true because of the backwards compatibility: with access to the huge library of GBA games and the growing library of DS games with Wi-Fi enabled features, you are guaranteed to spend as much time as you possibly can playing with your Nintendo DS Lite, spamming Urban Dictionary and online forums about PSP, and being an utter annoyance to people who brag about their PSPs, and anyone who thinks the PlayStation series doesn't suck; sometimes, you'll find yourself doing all of those things at the same time.
I'm going to go play Metroid Prime Hunters, Pokemon Diamond, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, and Mario Kart Super Circuit on my DS with my other DS addicted friends, while simultaneously waiting six months for FFTA 2 to come out, so I can go play Metroid, Pokemon, FFTA 2, and Mario Kart DS on my Nintendo DS Lite with said DS addicted friends.
