Nintendo DS Lite

PC Magazine
1 February 2007
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

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.

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?
