Nintendo DS Lite

PC Magazine
13 June 2008
  • Conclusion: The new, improved Nintendo DS Lite is worth the cost of the upgrade for fans of the original DS portable gaming device. It retains all the qualities that made the DS so much fun, and the bright new screens make a significant difference in the look of the games.
  • Pros: Bright screens. Lighter and slimmer than original DS.
  • Cons: Inserted Game Boy Advance cartridges stick out at the top slightly.

Nintendo DS Lite

  • Conclusion: When I first opened the DS Lite, it sort of reminded me of the old Game & Watch from Nintendo. It features the same flip open dual-screen configuration, except the G&W only played one game and wasn't in color. The controls are not over done like what you'd see on a home console. There is a directional pad and a total of 6 buttons for control (X,Y,B,A,L,R). There's also the standard Start and Select buttons.
  • Pros: Lightweight and small, Bright screen, Great viewing angle from all sides
  • Cons: Absolutely none

Nintendo DS Lite Review

  • Excerpt: Nintendo’s virtual dominance over the handheld market started in 1989 when the original Game Boy was released. While it was huge, it was pocketable. Kids would bring them to school, parents would play Tetris and the system would become a cultural phenomenon. In the past 17 years, Nintendo has constantly revised their famous handheld system.

  • Summary: For a while Nintendo looked like it was going to play underdog to the behemouths of Microsoft with their XBox and Sony with the PlayStation. Many had written of this company as an also run. That was then. Several years on from those predictions and Nintendo is breathing new life into not only itself, but also the games industry as a whole.

Nintendo DS Lite review

Stuff.tv
19 September 2006
  • Summary: When the Nintendo DS first appeared, we were a little disappointed. Next to its newly born rival, the Sony Playstation Portable, or PSP, it looked like a toy and we were surprised at how a company responsible for the truly iconic Game Boy could be so wayward. Fortunately, we didn't have to wait long for our fears to be allayed. Nintendo lost no time in releasing the DS Lite. Much smaller, and now in shiny black and white finishes, the DS Lite is a cracking handheld.

Nintendo DS Lite DS Review

  • Excerpt: Nintendo are hardware whores. Let’s face it, the GBA has seen so many renditions, we’ve lost count, (well, maybe not). The Original Game Boy hardware wasn’t without its makeovers either. But then, who cares? If you can make money out of a product, it makes good business sense to improve that product, if only slightly. Sony does it. Microsoft even does it. The majority of users of Windows only require the suit for basic word processing and data basing.
