It’s been said before, but the polar white version (the only one available in the US) is very reminiscent of the iPod. It’s got a hard white plastic shell that just oozes it. Its headphone port even reminds me of the old third generation iPod style with connectors for the remote control pins. Rumors of a headset are floating around, but nothing has surfaced.
For games, I originally bought Brain Age, Mario Kart DS, and the New Super Mario Bros. They’re all great choices. My Zelda addiction kept gnawing at me though, and without a DS title available yet, something had to be done. I can’t wait until November. Are you crazy? Thanks to the Gameboy Advance compatibility slot, I was able to plunk down for Zelda: the Minish Cap. That’s my obsession for the moment.
Any self respecting Mac or iPod user looking for mobile games needs to get a DS Lite. Despite my love for GTA, I just can’t endorse the PSP, the DS Lite is where it’s at.
