I just ordered one with a case. I am wondering if it includes an AC Adapter I can use in the states? Or do I need to get a converter?

Should be fine. Japan uses the same AC adapter that we do.

I'm thinking about possibly importing one.

Do you guys and gals think the White will eventually get pretty dirty?

Here's a question for you:

I get serious thumb crap in my right hand when playing Mario Kart on the DS. Does the DS Lite's new shape alleviate this? Have you had any pain while playing the Lite? What about with Metroid Hunters?

Yeah, this has been a problem for me as well, especially with Metroid.

Dammit if the Lite doesn't look sexy as hell. I wasn't really convinced that an upgrade would be worth it, but after looking at all the pics in the OP... damn. I can definitely wait a good long while to pick one up, but man that thing is slick.

Nintendo should come up with some kind of a stand so you can play it without holding it. Something that could clip to a desk or table or something.

I suppose that depends on how you hold it. I've played hour and a 1/2 long session of Mario Kart with the "loose hold" method and had no problems whatsoever.

or at least something to hook it up to a TV and choose which screen to display on the TV screen...

Wireless through the Rev...? ;)

I doubt the local connection has the bandwidth to do that, but it'd be amazingly cool if it did :)

either that or something along the lines of a controller adaptor with a screen and a DS card player for the Rev... I doubt it though.

Just a heads up for my fellow DS lite owners. The black soft case that came with the PSP works with the DS Lite. Perfect for those using another case for their PSP and not the one it came with. The DS fits nice and snug inside and very well protected. A cheap and easy solution for those who want to carry the system around in their pockets without having to worry about scratching up the nice exterior. If you don't own a PSP you can buy the case "pre-owned" from your local Gamestop at a very affordable price of 2.99

Oh, thanks for reminding me! I wanted to post my suggestion for a case too.

I picked this one up (at least I think it's the same one, though my "Nintendo DS" logo is on the bottom rather than the top) at Best Buy for $10:
http://www.amazon.co...475814?v=glance

The advantage of getting a regular DS case over a DS Lite case, in my mind, if that you could still carry the DS Lite with a GBA game in its slot. This particular case has a nice soft inside, with a tight elastic strap to hold the system in place. A velcro and mesh pocket is opposite the system slot for games/stylus/whatever, as well as a back zipper pouch with some elastic straps that can hold a DS cart or a GBA cart, as well as a pocket that easily holds the AC adapter. Even fully loaded, the thing's not too thick, but does kind of detract from the... um... liteness... of the Lite, but worth the investment to keep it safe in my opinion.

I have this particular case, and it's been great. I definitely recommend picking it up, especially for $10.00.

You wish is my command...

DS Lite Stylus comparison (with a pencil as well to help those without a DS get an idea for how big the stylii are)

Cheapy, think amused toe and I can share in the amazing profits you'll OBVIOUSLY be rolling in after this flood of traffic? ;) Or.... could you pick us up a Japanese DS game sometime?

amusedtoe: feel free to link to this one in the first page whenever you get around to it.

Did you look at the first screen from Hunters? That's the demo version, silly. I don't have the full-blown game. :)

Hoarder.

At this point I'm more interested in them releasing a price point for the Lite, more than a release date. At least then I would know if I will even consider upgrading.
