|Nintendo DS Lite revolutionizes the way games are played with ultra-bright dual screens and touch-screen technology. Connect wirelessly to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and put your skills to the test against players across the room or across the world.
With impressive 3D rendered graphics and ultra-bright screens, Nintendo DS Lite delivers cutting-edge portable games for fans of any genre. With the Nintendo DS Headset, you can talk and chat over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection or voice command games.
System: With Nintendo DS Lite, dual screens and touch-screen technology allow you to interact with games like never before. Wireless communication allows you to experience real-time multiplayer gameplay, and the free Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service allows you to compete against players from around the globe.
Dual Screens: Two incredibly bright LCD screens offer one of the most groundbreaking gameplay advances ever developed. Each 3-inch screen can reproduce a true 3D view, with impressive 3D renderings that can surpass images displayed on the Nintendo 64.
Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection: Ready to take on the world? Now, with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, you can connect wirelessly, chat and play with Nintendo DS owners across the globe. All you need to play is a Nintendo DS and a Wi-Fi-ready game. There are no subscription fees -- the service is free!
Touch Screen Technology: The lower screen offers something never before provided by any dedicated game device: touch-screen capabilities.
You no longer have to rely on just buttons to move your character or shift perspectives. Navigate menus or access inventory items simply by touching the screen with a stylus or fingertip. The possibilities are limited only by developers' imaginations.
The touch screen features a tougher film cover for durability, and the included stylus is stored in the back of the unit.
Microphone Port: A built-in microphone port means that with Nintendo DS, you only need to tell your games what to do.
The Nintendo DS microphone gives you even more ways to interact with your favorite games.
Wireless Network: With Nintendo DS Lite, you can connect with a local wireless network of up to 16 players. The wireless range can be an incredible 30 to 100 feet and for some games, multiplayer requires just one Nintendo DS game card.
Note: Nintendo DS Lite wireless communication, including PictoChat, is not private and is not monitored by Nintendo. We recommend that you never reveal any personal information or arrange to meet a stranger.
Rich Stereo Sound: Nintendo DS Lite sound capabilities allow for greatly expanded use of voices and music, and a richer, more immersive game experience. Stereo speakers allow for virtual surround sound and a plug for headphones transmits stereo sound.
Backward Compatibility: Nintendo DS Lite features a separate media port for Game Boy Advance cartridges, allowing you to play all your favorite Game Boy Advance games in single-player mode.
Customer Reviews of DS Lite (Cobalt Blue & Black)
I gave this as a gift to my friends son along with Mario kart racers game and my friend said he loved it. I tried it out before I gave it to him so it worked properly. And from what I see its working very well great price for this and I'm sure he will love playing it.
happy with this9/18/2012
I bought this for my 4 year old and he took right to it. I had no trouble getting it on our wireless network and even loading Netflix streaming for him. He walks around the house taking pictures galore. I also bought an accessory kit that he has gotten a lot of use out of.

The ds has been perfected12/30/2011
Not only does the lite look better, it has been tweaked to perfection in many ways: WAY brighter screen, makes the original ds look really dull.THe brightness also improves the colors, and makes them seem more vivid. Stylus is thicker and longer. Touch screen has a much more scratch resistant coating. The touch screen seems bigger because instead of being sunken in the ds, it practically pops out, making it look closer and nicer. The buttons are softer and less clicky, making gameplay much easier. So, I think the ds lite is worth getting even if you have a ds. If you have the "old" ds and don't want the new one, make sure you never try the new one because when you return the old one, it'll feel clanky, big, and really dull.
This Nintendo DS game system is great for everyone to enjoy. It works like expected and does have quite a few games option for all ages. The size is just about right for easy transport. It also is great for wasting time and keeping your self entertain.

My grandson loves it!1/2/2011
This was a Christmas gift for my six-year-old grandson. It arrived a few days after I ordered it. He is very happy with it.
Bought for my 7yr old and 11yr old girls1/6/2009
Got this through the seller Toyzz with free shipping. Ordered on Friday Dec 19, 2008 and was shipped same day, I recieved it on Wednesday the day before Christmas. I only paid $99 and I was very pleased with this seller. My girls love it! They can text message each other accross the park which was a hit. I got the games Hannah Montana Music Jam (very cool), Tinkerbell and of course my favorite the New Mario Brothers Game. The games also come with tons of mini games to play. Graphics are great on both screens.
good for learning1/4/2009
Bought this item for my 5 yr old grand daughter and she loved it. It plays ds as well as advanced gameboy games. so she can still play the older games she had too.
I bought this for my 5 year old son because I had gotten my daughter one last Christmas and he played hers all the time. He loves it! The graphics are great and my kids love theirs. I even like to play it (when they let me). We love the two screens with the bottom being the touch screen. Also, you can find games for these at a reasonable price. Highly recommend.
I have both the PSP & the Nintendo DS. The PSP has better graphics and sound but the DS has 2 screens and one a touch screen. Both are nice so it depends on what you think is more important, the sound and graphics or the 2 screens. In the end its the games for each system that really matters.
Nintendo DS Lite - Great!7/7/2008
Bought this for a gift for my son and he loves it!
NDS fun but so/so7/1/2008
Honestly, I own a gameboy advance (GBA) and like it more. Sure, the NDS has TONSSS of fun games. But as a computer engineer I must say the "widescreen aspect ratio - to - quailty of picture" is kinda lame. Even the newest games have images that are not smooth on the edges and, while kids love the NDS anyway, the quality on-screen could be better. Lots of accessories are available for NDS: if you must but, look into buying a "NERF GEAR CASE" for the so-mad-i'll-throw-it kinda kid. For the more mature, buy a PSP2 - the graphical appeal is much nicer. NDS has lots of quality apps - the choice btx fun games and serious gaming should be clear now.
my son loves it6/2/2008
I bought this for my son for his 11th birthday. He always says I don't know when I ask him what he wants for gifts, or if he has anything that he wants it is more ps2 games. He actually asked for this, and while it is not a whole lot different than buying him ps2 games, it was nice to have a small change. He loves it and it was cheaper here than even at walmart.
SAME AS ANY OTHER DS BUT A COOL COBALT OUTER SHELL
Glad I grabbed mine when I did, they're so popular the price went up to account for the shortages! This nintendo ds is the greatest one so far. It's just like all the others, awesome for gaming and simple to use, plus it's fun to show off. XD The blue top cover has faint glitter/metal shards in the finish, so it gives it a nice touch. A must have for nintendo fans and gamers everywhere. (They better make a green one next...)
Looks great. Lots of fun. No problems whatsoever.
