Coming to Europe!
Linky


22nd May 2006 - The Nintendo DS Lite will become the new addition to Nintendo’s video game family when it launches in Europe on 23rd June 2006. Available in two colours from launch - a sleek black edition and a cool, stylish white edition, the summer really is looking brighter.

Nintendo DS Lite is a lighter and brighter version of the highly successful Nintendo DS, which has sold more than 4 million units across Europe and 16 milllion units worldwide. It will join the Nintendo DS range as a ‘premium’ alternative to the current Nintendo DS and is expected to retail at the estimated price of around £99.99 / 149.99 Euros.

While I prefer the jet black iPods over the classic white ones, I actually think the white DS Lite is just perfect for it. I'm very happy that we're getting the white one first, because that's by far the one I want most.

So I guess we're still stuck with white? Ugh, terrible. Japan has navy and Europe has black, both of which I would want much more than white. If it weren't for price and NOA's customer service I would import. :( Get on the ball NOA.

(although, I prefer the white one)

we get the black version as Nintendo is starting to realise that Europe has a lot of potential if you treat it right. Theres potentially many millions more people to sell to in Europe than there is in the USA or Japan. and Europe grows every year.
also we deserve it anyway for having to wait so long for the damn thing!

Hmmm...nice.

Probably still get white, but neat to know (is it for us Aussie/Kiwis too?).

And just for those saying Europe is finally doing something right, lest we forget that Micro was released in atleast 5-6 colours, all with matching faceplates.

Woo!

I love white, but damn that's hot.

Yeah, seriously. The only thing I have against white is keeping it clean, since I actually take mine with me...

This is really gonna be a see both in person before deciding type thing. So sexy, both of them, all of them, though.

While I have to admit that Nintendo are marketing geniuses with the way they convince us to buy their platforms over and over again, I fucking hate it.

If multiple colors aren't available at launch in the US Imagonna be pissed. I don't like the white.
