Does the world want silver handheld gaming devices? I’ve always been quite pleased that Nintendo and Sony have shunned traditional gadget hues in favour of sleek black or white devices (or, in recent times, multicoloured ones).
Nevertheless, Nintendo has announced that its silver DS Lite will go on sale in Europe on 12th October for £99, which the company optimistically claims is “the perfect accessory whatever you’re wearing!” What if you’re clad entirely in gold?
Either way, the DS appears to be going from strength to strength, with Nintendo announcing that its More Brain Training from Dr. Kawashima game is about to sail through the million sales mark after just 11 weeks on sale, while Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl have sold over 1.6 million units in just seven weeks on the shelves. Crumbs.
