I dropped a load of hints about a DS game I want and.......now I'm getting it for Chrimbo :hyper: Brain training is great and really addictive! It actually is worth the money IMO but he'd want to get tthe hint quick to get one at a good price-my mum's having trouble finding a pink one for my lil sis that isn't crazy expensive!

DS just means dual screen so I [i:2f9ukwkd]think[/i:2f9ukwkd] a ds is just a gameboy but a ds lite is the brain trainingy one-open to correction though!

God I'm sad.... I "Wiki'd" it!!! Nintendo DS Lite Main article: Nintendo DS Lite The Nintendo DS LiteThe Nintendo DS Lite is a slimmer, more lightweight redesign of the original Nintendo DS model. It was made aesthetically sleeker to complement Nintendo's Wii and to appeal to broader commercial audiences.[citation needed] It was announced on January 26, 2006, more than a month before its first territorial launch in Japan on March 2, 2006.[53] The features and capabilities are the same as the original style DS, but the DS Lite has four levels of brightness. However, the four levels do not include a level where the backlight is off, thus making the system more vulnerable to glare. The sound seems to be fuller and richer, yet the battery life is longer. Unlike the casing of the original style DS, the DS Lite has a shiny glossy semi-transparent outside casing that resembles the popular iPod and Apple MacBook. The LED battery and charging light indicators have been moved to the upper right-hand corner of the unit, making it viewable regardless of whether the system is open or closed. The "start" and "select" buttons have been moved to the lower right-hand side of the touchscreen, the microphone has been moved to the direct center of the opened device, and the A, B, X, Y, and D-Pad seem to have been designed to match the Wii and Game Boy Micro.[54] Another improvement is the longer and thicker stylus, significantly reducing the amount of hand cramps as its users use it extensively throughout gameplay. Along with the other advancements, the Game Boy port of the DS Lite is shorter than the original style DS's port. When inserted, the Game Boy Advance cartridge protrudes out approximately 1cm from under the unit. Also, the charger connector is smaller, so a different charger must be used.
