Nintendo has announced this morning that they will do a price drop on the DS Lite system from $129.99 to $99.99 in June. Additionally in June six Mario titles will be getting new packaging that will mirror the red New Super Mario Bros Wii case. These games are New Super Mario Bros.™, Mario Kart™ DS, Super Mario 64™ DS, Mario & Luigi™: Bowser’s Inside Story, Mario vs. Donkey Kong™: Mini-Land Mayhem! and Mario Party™ DS.
Ryan’s Opinion: For those that do not own a portable system yet, and the price of the 3DS is still out of range I would recommend picking up a DS Lite . There are still a lot of great games out there readily available. Having owned both a DS Lite and a DSi, I can honestly say that there is not a whole lot of difference between the systems once you get past the cameras. Screen sizes may vary a small amount, but it really is not enough to alter your gaming experience.
