Nintendo DS Lite Price Drop to $99.99

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.

    I’ve long grown emotionally attached to my old DS Fat. While all my friends were busy getting sexy new DS Lites back in 2006, I could only look down at my 2005 edition and whisper to it that it was beautiful on the inside, while shedding a silent tear of envy.
