DS Daily: Europe goes silver

Anyone who had their eye on this baby is in luck -- if they're in Europe, that is. Stores have begun advertising the Metallic Silver (Gloss Silver in Japan) DS Lite on the continent. Considering Canada and the U.S. just got the special Brain Age 2 DS Lite, this is good timing for European gamers. But is it the one you want? And to our readers on this side of the Atlantic -- are you interested in the Silver Lite? Do you think this release will be expanded, or is each region going to continue getting different colors?

Nah. Different colours (note the spelling - I'm European) are nice, but in fact only interesting when you're getting ready to buy one. I wouldn't sell my DS just to get a silver one. Still, I hope they make all colours and bundles available everywhere, in the future.

Mmmmm, the silver is nice and classy, not like the garish red and black Brain Age version. Now this is a handheld games device that you can set your watch to.

I'm still holding onto the faint hope that maybe, one day, we might get the Enamel Navy Blue DS Lite. Just... Maybe. Metallic Silver is nice, but I'd rather have the blue.

But I do agree with the first guy. Different colors are nice, but it's only best when you're first getting a Lite. People won't sell a perfectly good system to help buy a new one, especially if you still have to transfer things like Wi-Fi ID over.

I'm not in Europe but I wonder if this has the crappy LCD like the BA2 red & black one.

Oooh, nice, Silver.

I may need to pick up a new DS lite soon since:
1: Hinge crack that sounds worse every time I upon it
2: Scratched touch screen
3: Touch screen calibration off and inreversable
4: Left speaker seems to be damaged

I just hope that this won't have the lame LCD screen that the Brain Age promo DS does.

Well, I'm in France, and I would rather buy an Enamel Navy or a red and black (if all the exterior was black it would be perfect), than a silver, but... it's still better than a white or black... (I still have my DS Tank and am considering switching sometime)

@ RupeeClock

Is your DS still under Warranty? (thats a lot of problems)

My DS had the calibration thrown off (most likely from too much Ouendan) and i had it fixed no questions asked by nintendo AND they gave me another 1 year warranty, the guy waiting in line infront of me (i went to an authorized Nintedo repair center) had his replaced due to a hinge crack i believe.
