  • Conclusion: Its aging bones are creaking a little, but the sheer fun factor and scope of its games library makes the bold, beautiful DS Lite the best handheld console around.
  • Pros: The bright, crisp twin LCD screens - one of which is touch sensitive - sets Nintendo’s handheld clearly apart from Sony’s slicker, more powerful PSP. This dual screen arrangement means games can be interacted with and controlled in a number of unusual ways - which in turn means the DS has a hugely varied library of innovative titles that puts the PSP’s game selection to shame. Wi-Fi and a long battery life are other plus points.
  • Cons: The DS is getting on a bit in console terms, so its graphical abilities are a little off the pace - while PSP graphics are on a par with the PlayStation 2’s, the DS’s are more in line with the Nintendo 64. It’s also almost totally lacking in media functionality, unless you tread down the unofficial accessory route.

Nintendo DS Lite Review

  • Conclusion: We won’t look a gift horse in the mouth, though. Despite a few interface quirks and the fact the machine’s external casing is prone to taking a beating, not to mention attracting dirt and gunk, the DS Lite does what it promises. Now, you can not only enjoy the offbeat, artistically-gifted games the console is known for ( Electroplankton , Trauma Center , Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney , etc.), but also do so in comfort and style.
  • Pros: Enhanced portability; Brighter screen; Revamped button layout; Slimmer weight
  • Cons: Case prone to smudging; GBA games stick out; Where's the light switch?

CNET

  • Summary: Zwar weist der Nintendo DS Lite eindrucksvolle Verbesserungen gegenüber dem ursprünglichen DS auf, jedoch reicht das Gerät in multimedialer und grafischer Hinsicht nicht an so leistungsstarke Geräte wie die Sony PSP heran.
  • Pros: geringes Gewicht, attraktives und handliches Design, zwei Bildschirme, hohe Auflösung, Sprachsteuerung
  • Cons: anfällige Oberfläche

Nintendo DS Lite

12 May 2006
  • Conclusion: Nintendo a fait subir un régime amaigrissant à sa console de jeu portable, DS. La nouvelle venue, baptisée "DS Lite" se révèle certes plus légère et plus compacte, mais conserve ses fonctionnalités.
  • Pros: Aspect plus moderne et plus attrayant que la DS d’origine, moins volumineuse, fonctionnalités, écran double (dont un tactile) innovant, micro utilisable pour les jeux, résolution plus fine que celle de la Game Boy Advance SP, compatible avec les anciens jeux GBA, possibilité de jouer à plusieurs via le sans fil local ou couplé à Internet, richesse des jeux.
  • Cons: jeux conçus par les tiers moins originaux et ingénieux que ceux de Nintendo, modèles de couleur sombre très sensibles aux rayures et marques, uniquement console de jeu pour le moment, prix et date de disponibilité inconnus hors Japon.
