DS Lite coming June 11th

The new DS Lite is making the journey overseas on June 11th and will retail for $129. Here is a list of new features that should entice you to buy one (besides the better aesthetics):

  • It's less than two-thirds the size of the original Nintendo DS and more than 20 percent lighter.
  • Its two bright screens can be adjusted to four levels to adapt to different lighting conditions and to extend battery power.
  • The microphone sits in the center of the unit, and the LED lights are clearly visible whether the unit is open or closed.
  • The stylus is 1 centimeter longer and 1 millimeter thicker than the stylus of the original, and slides into a side storage slot.
  • The Start and Select buttons were repositioned for easier access.
  • A removable cover keeps the Game Boy Advance cartridge slot clear from dust and debris when it's not in use.
This thing looks hotter than my PSP and I predict it will be a big hit in the American market.
