    I sent my sister to get a me a DS Lite and she came back with a DS (Fat, ugly thing) bundle with Mario Kart :\

    So I called Asda and the helpful chap informed me that they only have white ones and he reserved me one, but I really want a black version, so he asked me to call in tomorrow and see if any black one's arrive so I can do a quick exchange.

    Now there are a few problems:

    > I feel liking ripping open this DS and playing Mario Kart
    > It's my B'day tomorrow
    > I've got a boxin at 11am

    I can go now and have a white one or wait tomorrow to try for a black version ¬.¬

    Remember people, always do things yourself if you want it done properly :(

    I would get the white one personally, black is horrid to keep clean.

    The black is worth the wait. Some whites have already started yellowing around the shoulder buttons.

    the guy in gamestation showed me both store DS's when i bought mine and the yellowed shoulder buttons sent me straight to black.

    It does get finger printy really easily but also cleans really easily.

    Finger Prints > Yellow buttons

    Am I the only one who prefers the old chunky DS to the new one? :confused: The new one is just cheap and plasticy, IMO.

    Never had anything other but the Lite. Doesn't feel at all cheap to me, feels very solid.

    I have played on my friends 'old' DS and yes it is more comfortable to play on as I to have big hands but the DS Lite just oozes quality. When I first saw the 'old' DS I cringed at its aweful styling, the Lite is just beautiful, especially the Black one ;)

    I will keep an eye on this thread for his reply in about 3 months time when he complains about the grubby L & R buttons :p
