    this is probably a dumb question but i live here in the states and i don't want a white DS... if i were to import a black one from Europe, would the wi-fi settings work here too?

    It should...i don't think theres any difference between the DS from NA to Japan/Europe....except the power supply.

    Everything should work, if you buy one from lik-sang or another company that imports from japan you wont need to buy a seperate power supply or anything. Japan and america use the same plug

    www.lik-sang.com is a online store based in Hong Kong

    or ds link

    http://www.lik-sang.com/list.php?nav=over&category=273&

    HOWEVER. Lik-Sang is Euro centric, meaning it's mainly used by Europeans importing US & Japanese hardware.

    They dont have the UK/EIRE Machines so your not going to get a black one there regardless.

    I should have my black one by Friday :p

    LOL! Yeah the blue photos almost look black. I think the black will be like the macbook and be matte rather than glossy. Wel thats what I hope anyway; because if its glossy it will show hand & finger prints too much.

    Play Asia are going to have the black ones in stock. I really like play asia. For deliveries to Australia they seem to ship a lot quicker (although Lik-sang isn't bad by all means). Not sure what they're like delivering to the states though.

    VVVVVVVVV Hey MARKKK! There are many other importers such as playasia, ncsx, and yes asia. All should have stock of the black. I'm pretty sure you'll find it being released in the not too distant future on shores other than the UK soon anyway.

    oooh, that black DS is nice. Though I think those images make me want a White one more. which would be £20 too (import). I suppose we'll see.

    funny. I imported a US DS and now a bunch of americans are doing the same for the UK model. funny :)

    A little OT, but does the font on the front of the PS3 look like the font of the 1st and 2nd spiderman movie? (from the Play Asia link given earlier)

    Yeah the black one in those pics looks a bit grubby, and seeing the black gloss on the outside will get dirty very quickly.

    Think I'll go for white instead.

    yeah, but a grey or black GBA cartridge will look better jutting out of a black one instead of a white one.

    Back when I was planning on buying the PSP, I really wanted the white one! :)

    And I love my white DS... it reminds me of a mini ibook.
