DS Daily: Is color enough to justify a second DS?

Would you ever buy a second DS, solely because you like the color? It sounds silly, but time and again this blogger has come close to shelling out for one of those Enamel Blue Lites that appeared exclusively in Japan, only to back down at the last minute. It may sound like a fairly ridiculous reason to purchase a second version of any gaming system, but then gamers aren't always rational people, and DSes are desirable and just about cheap enough to justify impulse purchases.

Of course, some of you might well be purchasing a second DS in the very near future, as the cobalt blue DS Lite hits U.S. stores today. If you are, tell us about it!

Buy your loved one a blue and black Lite

For those of you who expressed an interest in that new, yummy cobalt blue and black DS, has just opened preorders for the handheld. Perhaps more intriguingly, it also reckons that the console will ship in North America on February 14th, a.k.a Valentine's Day, a.k.a the day when roughly half the population is suckered into buying tat for the most contrived of all non-holidays, while the other half feels depressed at the thought of being alone.

If you don't have any loved ones, then, uh, hey, love's over-rated anyway, and you've always got DS Fanboy. No? Not helping?

[Thanks, Scott!]

DS Daily: Did Circuit City spill too early?

Just the other day, a listing popped up on Circuit City for a blue and black DS Lite, not long after rumors of the imminent release of a blue Lite started to circulate. Since then, the listing has been removed (boo), and we've heard nothing else.

So what do you think is up? We doubt it's a complete mistake -- as in, a fabricated page or anything. It seems likely that we will see a black and blue Lite at this point, if we've seen it once. Do you think Circuit City jumped the gun with their page, revealing what was supposed to continue to be a secret?

[Thanks, Rob!]

Rumor: Another blue DS Lite?

The world (or at least, parts of it) has already seen the Ice Blue and Enamel Navy, but are we about to see another shade? According to Platformers, maybe so. They promise that a trusted source -- who has been in the know on rumors in the past -- has let slip that a Cobalt Blue DS Lite is in the cards, and we'll see it as early as next month.

Though the rumor doesn't specify, it hints that the color is slated for the North American market. Part of us wants to believe ... and the rest just wonders why we're not getting one of the existing shades of blue if this rumor turns out to be made of truth.
