    Post here if you got it!

    I got mine in last night, and boy is it great. It's my first DS and I'm really enjoying it. I'm amazed on how bright it is, almost seems brighter than my old psp (sold it). I can't compare it the old DS, cuz i as i stated this is my first one. Here are some pics i took with photobooth so you can get an idea. also does any1 kno of any type of decent looking carrying case?? and also any type of screen protector for the bottom half?

    Here are some pics so you guys can get an idea of the dimensions.

    There's a nice review on YouTube that declares the Lite brighter than the PSP

    Yeah I've had mine since 6/1 also. I was lucky enough to have a Meijer selling them early near me.

    New Super Mario Bros. is awesome.

    hey did you take those pictures with "photobooth"...?

    They are backwords, that's why i was asking :)

    i didnt get one. i broke my DS a while back and then mario came out which i had preordered. i couldnt wait a month to play it so i just bought a used DS...now i'm thinking about ebaying it and buying a lite. seems way cooler.

    is it at stores today or tomorrow?

    That looks awesome! I'm so tempted to get one, but I really need to save my money for school and stuff. :( Hopefully I'll get a little bit of cash for my birthday (coming up June 27) so I can justify the purchase a little more. ;)

    Seriously, how many more years is it going to be before I can have a black DS that I don't have to pay out the ass for?

    Knowing Nintendo, they will probably come out with some new colors in a few months, so everybody will have to buy new DSs again! :p However, the new colors will most likely be Puke Green™ and Hott Pink™. :D

    ok, I got it. I couldn't wait until morning and buy it at work (Toys R US) so I went to Wally World and got one. I got Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart. Metroid and Tetris to follow along with others.

    So question, must my better finish charging the first time before I start playing it?

    I'm going out today to get one. I have a $40 gift card to Bestbuy, so that will bring the price down below $100. I am going to pick up Super Mario Bros. as well, should be a good game to start my DS experience.

    I had a PSP for over a year, but I really have to force myself to play it. Most of the games just didn't capture me. My girlfriend has a GBA SP and I play that a lot. The games are simple and just the way the I want them to be on a portable system.

    KAAAAAAAAAAAAAHN!



    But um, how much would it cost for you to ship one to a friend in U.S.? Also, how much does the unit cost in U.S. dollars for you guys? $160?

    If it ends up being a lot more than the white DS here, I suppose I'll just wait...


    ...and wait...

    Just picked mine up from my local Target. It's unbelievable how good it looks. Very Applesque. The screen is freakishly bright and colorful. I turned on my DS Fat to transfer the wireless settings, and it seemed absolutely dingy by comparison. The new stylus is FAR more comfortable, too. My only concern right now is how Metroid will play without the thumbstrap. I guess I'll find out. :)

    Wait, wait, wait...


    There's no thumbstrap!?



    HAHAHA! I knew they'd do something stupid! I knew it! There's always a catch with Nintendo. They always give features while they take away others.


    First, the GBA cart sticking out, now this!?

    That makes Metroid completely unplayable for me now. F that.

    There's no way to even attach the old thumbstrap to the new system? No way at all?!

    It's not included with the package but you can still attach one regardless (at least that's what I heard)
