DS Lite

My good friend and roommate Ryan just came home with his brand new DS Lite. I've wanted one since I heard they existed -- being the good Nintendo fanboy that I am -- but I did not realize how much I wanted one until I saw it myself. Sure, it's smaller. Sure, the stylus is bigger. You don't need to see the thing to understand why these are improvements. It is, however, impossible to internalize the difference in picture quality until you see it with your own two eyes. We placed them side-by-side. It's not even close. It's as though the original DS displays only in black and white.

Must... acquire... DS Lite...

Well? Does it still power down between "modes?" I'm getting one anyway if I don't win one from Kotaku this month, but the people need to know.

Yes it does. It seems to function identically.
