Nintendo DS Lite ReviewPosted on 2006-06-14 15:23:37 by LSDsmurf
Everyone's trying to slim down in time for summer – Nintendo included. Witness the newly debuted DS Lite ($129.99), a smaller, sleeker and generally better designed model of the popular DS handheld, which improves upon its predecessor in almost every conceivable way. From tangible weight and size reductions to a new button layout, sharper visual performance and repositioned stylus holder, it's a welcome addition to the Japanese giant's celebrated family of portable consoles. So if you haven't gotten hip to the dual- screened diversion's charms – i.e. touch-sensitive titles experienced through top- and bottom-mounted visual displays using a stylus or d-pad- and button- based front-end – now's the perfect chance.
