This year, to help you forget the fact that you're not rich enough to import a DSi, two further hardware bundles will be made available: an Ice Blue Lite with Brain Age and a case that looks like a Filofax, and a Mario Red model with an "M" stamped on it that ships with New Super Mario Bros., both priced at $149.99. It prints money, etc. If you take away that "M," these are basically two of Nintendo's newest European Lites. We admit to harboring mixed feelings about the "M." Would anyone else just prefer the plain red Lite?

I've never understood the logos. Any time the DS is turned on, anyone looking at the logo sees it upside down. People seeing someone playing that Mario DS in public are going to wonder what's up with the big red W on the top screen.

Works for me, last name starts with W. But yeah I understand what you're saying. It's probably because all ds ads have the ds closed except when they play them of course.......

Just say it's an Oliver Stone movie tie-in Nintendo DS.
I've not seen "W" yet, but I'm sure George W. Bush plays a Nintendo DS at some point in the film.

Funny, I almost said it looked like it could have been Republican National Convention swag if the DS had been out during the 2004 campaign.
Shame for Nintendo that they don't have a first-party franchise that has a circle as its logo (Pokeball comes close, but...). Paste an O on a blue DS and it would sell bucketloads.

Computers usually have the logo oriented to be "correct" when viewed from behind... at least Apple and Dell are, but I imagine most (if not all) other companies do the same.

Wouldn't it have to be an "O" on a black DS?
Or at least a half black, half white DS?
Oh yeah. I went there.

Actually the M is almost convincing me to get that one... Then again I already have an onyx and I gave in to the zelda DS so maybe not =S

Those bastards! Now I need to get the Euro green to have something the US doesn't (which I wanted anyway > >; )
10-28-2008 @ 6:39PM
DO WANT!(THOUGH NEEDS MONEY)
And yes, the Mario Logo looks good.
10-28-2008 @ 8:33PM
Oh, settle down. It's just an M.

Where's my lime green Lite? The only color that I want is halfway across the world.
(Yes, I can import, but I don't know if I want it that badly).

Mario is my god o_O plus I dont have a lite, if the "M" lite doesnt come with NSMB (WHICH I ALREADY HAVE) I might get.

If I said that M makes it look sexier...should I check myself in?
