Nintendo takes shine to golden DS Lite
Metallic pink version too
Nintendo has unveiled a pair of DS Lite bundle packs, just in time for the Christmas rush.
No doubt Nintendo’s aiming each bundle pack at some specific gamer groups, given the choice of either a golden handheld or a more feminine metallic pink version.
The pink one?
The gold-coloured console comes with a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, while anyone preferring a metallic pink console will get a copy of the virtual-mutt training game, Nintendogs.
Release of the bundle packs should, apart from increase the console's Christmas sales volume, also help attract the attention of both male and female hardcore DS Lite gamers, who see the either bundle as a collectable or special edition model.
So far, Nintendo’s only announced that both bundles will be available in the US. They'll arrive on 23 November for around $160 (£80/€110). A UK release date hasn’t yet been confirmed.
Black Wii to match my black DS please.
Then it wouldn't be much of a bundle, would it?
girly and wanting zelda
Just because I am a girl, doesnt mean that I want to play games aimed for a child. I fancy the pink DS, but with Zelda
Why can't they give me the choice about which free game to get
As usual for Nintendo
When I was in Tokyo early this year they had much more variety of colour than we get here in the UK, or in the US. I saw Metallic Pink, Gold, Silver, Metallic Blue, and Dark Blue. Those are the ones I can remember. Much like the goodies on Club Nintendo we don't seem to get such niceties...
On a side note, the DS is not that much cheaper in Japan than it is in the UK, unlike the Wii. Couldn't be anything to do with the fact that the games aren't region encoded so grey imports are a lot more viable, could it?
and more Wii's is what the UK needs!!!
