Lo necesitaba para jugar juegos de gba, un poco caro en estos tiempos pero es la mejor manera de disfrutar esos juegos clasicos, mas el plus de la libreria de nds.
This console is going to become rare soon and is one of the best ways to play GBA games.
The one I boought is one of my favourites.
Very happy with the purchase.
Buy one while you can!!
I was searching for this special edition (FFIII Crystal Edition) of NDS since around 3 years ago but i never could find it till now. If you love the Final Fantasy saga, this item must be in your collection, its cover is simple but pretty,and the white color of the console makes it to look so formal, the rest is like every NDS lite of the world =P. Functional and Funny XD
The iQue DS Lites are the only DS Lites capable to writing chinese words!
I got this when it came out and it's a lovely DS i liked the design but have the FFIII and Crystal Chronicle one also these have become a bit of a collection for me.
It's a must for a fan of FF or anyone looking for a variation from the normal DS designs.
i ordered it and i love it so much, it has a nice and glittery design at the front and it so sexy i use white rubber gloves to hold it lol, its easy to get finger prints but i bought a crystal hardcase to protect it from finger prints. i also bought a hori screen protector to protect this beauty from scratched. :D
I fell in love the sec i saw the the color, it looks so sleek and small. had it for a couple weeks now and im loving it. It was worth getting it, and the best part is its region free.
I think its the most amazing front cover and a slick look for that system. It even has a touch screen for awsome gameplay. For my opinion it beats any portable system, except the PSP since it can play dvds.
the system is awesome there are many games to choose from the only thing is that with the black one you can see your fingerprints all over the thing
My first DS didn't come from play-asia. I actually picked one up from somewhere else once I acquired enough money. I was very happy with the product and loved it to bits and pieces! Problem was, it came with a crack on the system and that bothered me. I would've stuck with it, though, but then I spotted this beauty...
The Japanese Ice Blue DS.
I fell instantly in love! After I got a job, I spent my first paycheck on one along with a silicon cover for the outside and screen protectors and I'm really happy that I made that investment. My Ice Blue DS is so beautiful but I love showing it off. The product came fast and it was definitely worth every cent.
I've had this DS for a couple of weeks now and it is awesome. :) Its much more beautifull when you see it with you own eyes.
One of the best DS colors released.
The back is not like other DS,it is actually plastic as in the feeling of the inside of the DS,it can also be have a little scratch mark once you scratch it but,I heard if you just rub it,the scratch will come off.Also I heard that when taking off the gameboy cartridge is a little hard to take off,although that was only a rumor but,it may be true.Anyways,I aprove of the DS just make sure not to scratch it much.
thx to sakuranoame. I choose this one and i don't regret.
thx to play-asia too. Play-asia sends it to me very fast.
I got to say this ds is amazing I really like the color. THE NINTENDO DS IS THE BEST HAND HELD EVER. And better than the psp.
Yay it finally came in! My face lit up with joy as soon as i saw the package. This ds is really amazing. Its just like my pink one only the color is different but it looks way better ha ha. Once again play-asia thanx again for your service. Always a pleasure to do my shopping here.
In real Metallic Rose looks much better. It's not candy nor plastic pink. It's stylish and adult pink.
Perfect color for women.
I just received my Ice Blue DS Lite and I must say it's amazing. Worth the extra cash. It looks even better in person :D
If you've never seen the crimson black DS with your own eyes, you'll be fooled by its pictures posted online (anywhere). First of all, the red actually has a metallic sheen to it (a few ebay pictures do kinda show that). But no picture shows that the black portion of the handheld is actually something similar to rubber casing! Previously released black and navy blue models all use the enamel material on their casing, and they are extremely prone to scratches and fingerprints (I own the navy blue one)... But the crimson black model uses materials that are more scratch and fingerprint resistant (even the red part)! Finally, something I'm completely satisfied with...
I adore my enamel navy ds lite, the color is so rich and dark its awesome.
Absolutely Beautiful !!
I love it, it's smooth and shiny. Totally like it.
I recommand it if you want to show-off 8D !
they need 2 make more
While I didn't order it from here...I did get it from another website back in May. Let me just tell you that this thing is very beautiful to stare at, and it is a great collectors item for any Pokémon fan. I am a huge Pokémon fan, so I had to have it. If you ever see one of these babies on this site or anywhere, you should definitely buy it, because that chance may never come again.
Ta keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee so!!!!
Ho shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii yo
I own this DS Lite twice and it's so great!
Even though i bought a black DS a few months back, i saw this colour and had to have it.
the colour looks even better in real life than in the pictures, and the free usb charger rocks!
Wow, thats very pretty!
I really want a yellow ds lite, but if I cant find one this is my second choise
☆That has to be probably the coolest thing I have ever seen! Its so shinny and yellow! I want one sooooo bad!☆
Months ago I couldn't think of purchasing a portable video game, but now I found myself in need of a Nintendo DS for Japanese language learning. I didn't think twice and came to play-asia.com, because I know I can trust this site. Thanks for the great service! About the product, it's obvious. A Nintendo product with all Nintendo quality. The touch technology is amazing, innovation is always welcome. Again, I would like to thank www.play-asia.com for providing me this sweet thing for this sweet price.
this ds resolution is soo bright !
and the colour is great!
i love it!
This is the greatest color of all.
I really want one!!
Just the most beautiful color for the best portable system.
I love it :o)
I love this thing, the color is great, it's english compatible, and it's so much better looking than its predecessor. Not to mention that it's so much brighter, with 4 backlight settings.
my sister and i have the pink ds lite.... even though she hates pink! as soon as she heard about this she looked it up and is begging for this to be her birthday prestent! im sure everybody wants one of them even if they just got theirs last christmas like us. i even want one, which is big because i am addicted to pink!
by the time I got it in the mail I beat the game with in 6 days after I'd play it again and again ^_^!
Thank you again
This package was ideal for me because Revenant Wings was the game I wanted and I did not own a Nintendo DS prior to this. My package came in perfect condition, with a complimentary packet of sweets :D and a discount coupon for my next purchase at Play-asia. The game is awesome, and there is absolutely no problems whatsoever with the console. AND THE PRINT IS BEAUTIFUL. Thank you Play-asia!!!
I've got it and I'm so happy :o)
I got it on Apr 27, 2007 and it's mine mine all mine, I got allot of compliments and envy of some gamers wanting it , it's not hard to figure out if your a true gamer. I'm actually half way threw the Game, This will be my most vauble treasure sorry BUT I love it more then my cell phone ^_^!
Thanks PlayAsia for fast service and everything you provide my gamer needs.
Sayonara for now *^_^*
I bought the Final Fantasy 3 Dslite from play asia when that was released, and NEEDED to have this one as soon as I saw it. It's sitting nicely in with the rest of my final fantasy collection as we speak ^_^
It's a beautiful peice of equipment, and the game's awesome too, so cute =D
Highly recommended to any final fantasy fans anywhere!! Ideal centerpeice to any collection.

DARN YOU PEOPLE!!!! i'm SOOOOO JEALOUS that you can read Japanese!!!! i wish i could!!! *sigh
OMG!!! I GOT MY TODAY!!! ITS BEAUTIFUL!!! I CANT EVEN TOUCH IT, its just ever so wonderful. It also comes with free candy!! yum ^^ Thankyou play-asia
This thing is beautiful.
BUY IT NOW, BEFORE IT'S OUT OF STOCK!
Thanks to Play-Asia too for their great service! I'm always 100% satisfied with everything. :)
I received it today (27 april) at 12:00pm! Im so happy to have this DS limited edition. It is really nice, the pack made it here in perfect condition and all works perfectly!
I Ordered It! Cant wait.. OMG T^T...hope i'll get a good code
I got mine today and I was sooooo excited knowing that inside the box buried beneath the packing peanuts, there was going to be the coolest thing ever! Even though I got mine on ebay since the one on play-asia I still recomend for you to buy here because I bought some cleaning suppies, but I must say the shipping can be alot if you want it right away!
the color is worth the extra money its the best color i have the black one
This dslite has to be the best color available, i set it next to my sister's white ds and it makes her ds look like a piece of crap. i ordered this on a thursday night and it was on my front porch monday afternoon! they even included some free japanese candy which was a nice addition
i wuv the color
For those importers worried about electrical issues (different currencies) remember you use the free USB charger (free gift from Play-Asia), and charge from your computer. No need to use actual electricity to charge. I have the 110 volt Japanese one, but I still use the USB charger from my computer for most the times I charge.
This DS is great. In my opinion it is the best color out there. I bought this for my girlfriend and she loves it. It makes my black DS look kind of bland and boring... maybe they'll come out with more colors soon. Anyways, it is definitely worth the extra money to import this version.
Also, I'd like to say what a great store Play-Asia is. I placed my order Tuesday morning and it arrived Thursday morning; a day earlier than I expected. I would most definitely do business with them again.
one word "nice"
I was looking for information about the Nintendo DS in Wikipedia.com, and all of a sudden I read: "The Nintendo DS comes in five colors...". I went like "What? Noooo, no no no no...that only comes in white, black and pink...what the hell are they talking about?". I kept reading and I see my favorite color shown in the list: Light Blue...ok well, Ice Blue to go with the official name. No WAY!?!?! This thing comes in light blue!?!?! But where the hell is it? I have never seen it anywhere!!! So, I looked it up until I finally found it in Play-Asia and, since it ended up being cheaper than on eBay, I placed the order.
I bought my Ice Blue Nintendo DS right before it went on backorder (phew!) and I can tell you...I really don't care about the $70 more that I spent to get something that nobody has. I live in Puerto Rico and not too many people know how to buy unique things like this one via Internet, so it's fun to tell them that this DS that I have is only sold in Japan. I can tell you that people look at me so puzzled and amazed when they see this BLUE DS. Even the people at GameStop and EB Games stores go like "WHAT? BLUE? IT CAN'T BE!!! THAT DOESN'T COME IN BLUE!!!". It's so ADORABLE!
Shipping was very, very, very fast (although it seemed like it was taking forever because I was so desperate) and the device came in perfect condition. Of course, when you turn it on, it's going to come out in Japanese, but don't panic! Follow these instructions: when you turn it on for the first time, it's going to ask you for some information. Write whatever gibberish you want (remember that you won't understand it anyway...and you can change it later) and, once you finish entering whatever data you are being asked for, you will get to the main screens (you will see a clock, a calendar and some text boxes). Tap on the icon with the DS drawing at the bottom center of the bottom screen. Tap on the pink box with a wrench on it and then three more boxes come up. Tap on the one with a globe and...voila! Select ENGLISH!!!
Important for the people in the US and Puerto Rico...DON'T you dare buying the 220 V version PLEASE...yours is the 110 V version, understand? Remember that we don't have the same voltage rate than in Europe...ok? Good, so now repeat after me: ONE-HUNDRED-AND-TEN-VOLTS!!!
To finish up I have to say...THANKS Play-Asia for the fast shipping, the great products that you guys sell...ah, and for the candy too...that was AWESOME!
O M G!! This is the bestest thing in the whole friggin' world!!! You should totally get this. I'm gonna buy one this weekend off play-asia if they restock. =( Man, peoples, save one for me! -runs off to find one-
So much easier to handle and to use! Not to mention the levels of brightness for the screens are a big help. As is the better battery.
However, a question for those who own a NDS Lite (whether the Japense or or the Asian version)...
Is there a way to register an imported Nintendo DS Lite? I'm from America who recently purchased the Enamel Navy. After contacting the offical Nintendo site in the U.S.A., I was told the console would need to be registered in the orginating country/country it was intended for. Japan's Nintendo website did not display a place where the device could be registered.
omg it is so cool!!!!!!! the only thing that really bothers me is that it isn't in the USA!! : ( you should really get it! the color is awesome!
I ordered my DS Lite Ice blue as a reward to myself. I have sold 38 DS Lites on-line, when they were rare in North America, and made a tidy profit. Time to treat myself.
I was so glad I saw the Ice Blue DS Lite, and was ready to make a purchase. I sold my used white DS Lite on-line (for a profit) and immediately bought the Ice Blue from Play-Asia. I never had one second of buyer's remorse from the moment I made my on-line purchase. To the end, when my beautiful package arrived via UPS. I ordered this on a Wednesday night, in the USA, and it arrived by Friday morning! Wow! What quick service!
When the package arrived, I was careful not to open it in front of my young children. My son just got a black DS Lite and I had a feeling he would be wanting my beautiful new Ice Blue Lite if he saw it. I didn't even show my wife! (She might take it too!) I couldn't believe my eyes! What a glorious beautiful invention Nintendo of Japan has brought us! Shiny, pretty and Lite. Wow!
Play Asia also included a USB charger for my new Lite. Simply plug it into your computer, and into the Lite, and "Voila" it's charging just like from the Electrical charger. This was included free of charge. Also included was some delicious candy!
The Japanese version is compatible with the electrical systems in the USA, so no worries there. It is a bit trying to get your name and birthdate and other stuff updated, in a foreign language (Japanese I think), but you can switch to English for your nickname on the system. All other stuff is self-explanatory.
Highly recommended. Play Asia is a wonderful company and brings lots of pleasure to Import Gamers.
Two thumbs Way Up!

Ice Blue Baby! Ice Blue Baby! Repeat several times
Now stop! Pause your game and listen!
Nintendo's back, with a brand new Invention!
Will it ever stop, (NO!) No, not Mario!
It's Ds Lite baby!
Ice Blue Baby! Ice Blue Baby! Repeat several times!
Bring it down, boys!
Ice Blue Baby!!!
Ice Blue Baby!!!
(Repeat hundreds of times!)
It's true, pictures don't do the Ice Blue DS justice. Definitely better than just skinning/covering an ordinary NA version. My only hesitation was with not being able to register the DS in the U.S., but Play-Asia's six month warranty helped with that matter. Customer service was quick to respond to any questions or inquiries I had. Considering the demand for DS Lites during the holidays I was surprised at how fast I received mine.
I haven't had any problems with my DS and have no regrets with my purchase.
I love this thing! Also the fact that you can't get this color here in the US, it makes your ds lite stand out from the others. I'm glad I chose this very cool ice blue color.
Once again very fast shipping.
Thanks again P-A!!!
It is the best Nintendo DS Lite modell .
I ordered mine 2 days ago and it already arrived at my home! I was very pleased. You won't see this color here in the US that's why I went with this cool ice blue color. Thanks again P-A!!!
The DS arrived just in time for Christmas and my son will love it. The color is gorgeous and vibrant!
You guys are the best!
They don't have this in Canada, and when I e-mailed Play-Asia, I got a quick response (within 24 hours!!) Only downside was the shipping wasn't very quick. When i purchased this product, the icon said within 24 hours shipping, but they shipped it almost a week later. Oh well, at least i got it. That's the important part.
I would have to wait at least a few more months or years before Canada would get new colors. But since importing the DS Lite I am very happy (Even better that you can switch languages =D ). This is a great buy the system comes with:
2 Styli (1 in the bag and 1 in the system)
I fell in love with it when I got it in the mail, the color is nice and doesntly really show as well in the website pictures. But I ordered mine from here via UPS and to my surprise, got it the next day! It does look kinda like a bar of soap lol but it the best looking electronic soap bar Ive ever seen! So if you want a ds thats not a boring color (like in the u.s.) then buy from here and youll be more than happy! :)
Hello, every Nintendo DS (including the Lite series) can run games from any region except Chinese games, them run only on the iQue, the chinese DS. So that's mean that the Japanese models can run american and european versions of any game.
And all DS have the menus in english, german, french, spanish, italian and japanese languages, you only have to setup it at first time.
I love the Ice Blue color, that is what sold me. I almost couldn´t help myself. Plus Animal Crossing helps :)
All my friends are jealous!! A must have for any Final Fantasy fangirl!
I got this wonderful games console today in a shop. It is brilliant. I used to have the old DS (in pink) but I sold it to get this one. This has a better screen than the old DS. It is much brighter. And of course the size is so much smaller!
I got my DS lite ice blue !! Beautiful !!!
Really quick shipping, thanks again !
Can anyone tell me, does this play English DS games too? I really want it, and if it plays N.A. games I will buy it today.
Answer: Yes it does
im gonna ask for one for my birthday its sooo sweet! i really want one i will order from here!
I love my Ice Blue DS!!! I got this color simply because it's not offered in the U.S. VERY QUICK SHIPPING!!!! Thank you so much!!!
Darn that thing is very expensive everywhere but it has to be worth something if it isn't a normal DS Lite price. I have to wait to get one but, it just looks very awesome
yea my question was can all the DS lites play all games?
like can the japanese version play american games?
This arrived in only a few days after i placed my order. Although i did get stung for customs charges which i was not aware i could be liable to (PlayAsia really SHOULD note this on the item description!). The DS itself is a lovely glossy black with 2 characters on the front. Flipped open its a nice matt black colour.
One thing though....how many have been made and how do you know what # yours is???
I know someone from China with all sorts of cool gadgets (He just came to our school). He showed me his Pokemon DP DS Lite a few days ago, and was kind enough to let me borrow it for a week. IT ROX. It has images of Diaruga and Palkia on the front, and when you flip it open, it reveals a smooth, black surface. Even though it's a normal DS Lite with kewl graphics, any Pokemon fan will love it. BUY IT NOW.
I got mine 2 weeks after launch it is a must-have for any Final Fantasy fan. Mine is number #14966!
I have a question is the Enamel Navy ds language only japanese? If it is I cant read japanese so it would be useless for me. Please answer! Thanks!!!!!
(Answer: All DS systems are multilanguage)
Very N1 Game Boy I Love this.
best regards Pascal
I had a black original DS which was far better to any of the colors released in the US, although it was more of a dark grey (hence, "charcole") than a solid black.
I held onto that and waited out the release of a black DS Lite since the white one looks and feels too much like an iPod for my taste and I just generally prefer black systems over white anyway.
Now that I have one in my hands, I have to say that I'm pleased. As far as the color goes, it looks very nice and clean - much more defined than the white, so to speak. However, it comes with its share of problems, to be sure.
First, like the PSP, black iPods, etc, fingerprints, dust, and scratches show MUCH more on the black DS Lite. Fortunately, only the lid and bottom of the Lite is affected by this since the inside is a matte finish whereas the outside has the glossy look to it.
In other words, your smudgy fingerprints won't irritate you during gameplay like they might while playing the PSP.
A couple other gripes about the Lite in general...I'm afraid that since the letters on the buttons are painted on, they will most likely wear off over time. Hopefully this won't be true, but I won't be surprised.
Back to the outside of the Lite and scratches...I've managed to keep my unharmed so far, but it'll be difficult to keep it that way forever. The white one may not show it as bad, but the black will for sure. It just depends on how well you take care of your stuff.
To help prevent this, I recommend picking up a nice case along with your Lite like the Hori Multi Pouch Lite (see my review on that one as well). I also picked up a leather sleeve to keep mine in when not in the case. It helps if I just want to keep it in my pocket for a bit.
The screen is brighter (VERY MUCH SO), the d-pad/buttons are a bit smaller, but it isn't as top-heavy as the old DS when playing games which require full stylus control.
One word of warning, though. If you have big hands, you may want to keep your old DS or get one instead. It may be bulky, but you will probably find it more comfortable. I suggest holding a friend's Lite for a while first before deciding.
I got my hand on my DS Lite today. It is just a great device. Building quality and screen is awesome. Only drawback is your fingerprints that stay on the plastic.
It took 9 days for it to arrive because of the customs. I suppose it would take only 5 days if it wasn't delayed at custom. Shoppers from Turkey should be aware of this fact.
Now, I'm expecting the games I ordered and then I'm good to go!
Mines number 19436, its gorgeous and i love it. Been waiting for a reason to by a DS Lite and a FFIII Ltd edition version was just the excuse. Got wacked £50 import tax but, dammit, it was worth it...look at it shine!
i got the number 09030 and it´s great but i dont speak any japanese but i love final fantasy and the ds lite was a must have for real fans ^^
but how much from this limited edition were made?
This DS rocks ! Got it just yesterday and I can't stop playing ! The game is great and the DS Lite looks more beatiful than any other version.
I can only recommend it!
ive just got mine yesterday and i must say im quite the happiest person alive! just waiting to buy a charger for use in malaysia though. btw, my is with the number 18313, what's yours? lets share some numbers!
Well, there's already improvements from DS to DS Lite. I'm not going to rate this comparing it to the DS. Rather, I'll compare this to the other DS lites.
Much like the others it's pretty much a standard DS lite. The DS lite is already great, in and of itself. Wants makes this stand out is artwork. It's no Mona Lisa, but the artwork is simple and clean. It doesn't scratch off easily because there's an clean layer on the top that protects it from scratches. Great job on this one.
Perfect form Playasia : quickly shipping, perfect handing.
Fantastic service from Playasia for such a wonderful product.....this is a final fantasy fan's dream come true. The price is inflated but due to the limitedness of the system, it is worth it....I was freaking out @ the beginning and made sure I ordered as soon as it became available by checking constantly. I ordered also some Hori equipment and this was Wed. night......then yesterday morning (Friday), I get the package with everything with standard EMS in CA, if that's not service I don't know what is. Keep up the great work Play-Asia.
this is great the power of a gameboy in one the nintendo ds is the best option on portable games because you can use the games of the gameboy advance and games for the nintendo ds and imagine the posibilitis of buy the WIFI adapter for playing games around the world is tecnologi.
other thing was too the wireles playing system becuse you only need one game too play 4 is aweysom
well there goes the limited edition ff3 ds lite. first its very limited and sold out and now its back in stock and seems like abundant. mine just shipped and ill be waiting. i just hope i get one with a good number and also that the price doesnt go down. coz if it does then ill be pissed!!
Super jeu, super console, super packaging, mais le prix n est pas le bon par rapport à celui en yen, cela devient chaint de devoir payer le double du prix pour un pseudo "collector" . Ceci dit je trouve ce pack trop beau...
I ordered the black DS Lite Sunday night and recieved it Wednesday morning. There were no scratches or dead pixels on it. I also got a complimentary USB charger compatible with the DS Lite and some candy. That's nice. :|
The DS Lite is in practically every way better than the DS. It's slimmer, brighter, sexier, and lighter. However, there are some cons that the DS Lite has as well. The Lite has many defects, some rare, but some common. They are, but aren't restricted to: Faulty diagonals, weaker buttons, tilted screens, hinge cracks, and dead pixels. Luckily, my imported navy Lite only has faulty diagonals, but nevertheless is annoying. The Lite would have really been better without these defects.
However, the Lite of course isn't all bad. I love the navy color, even if it does get a lot of fingerprints on it. It is just a wonderful piece of technology. The crackling candies that came with it were also tasty. So while I indeed love my Lite, its biggest flaw would be the defects, shooting the otherwise 5 stars to a 4.
I got it a few days ago and its proven to be an awesome product and an even better store. I ordered it and some other things from another store and this one SHOWED up FIRST!! its kind of funny how something being imported can show up faster then something being shipped a few states away.
Well I ordered my Black DS on Aug. 8th at 2:30 in the afternoon. I just got it today on Aug. 10th at about 9:30 in the morning. IT ONLY TOOK TWO DAYS!!!! Now that is quick delivery.
Thanks playasia for the good service, oh and the candy and usb charger.
Placed the order on Monday(August 7th) and received it by Wednesday(August 9th). This is the best handheld i've ever owned! It's so much sexier in person! Great purchase!
i got myn imported frm sum nxt place and its fab ,fnxin nintendo 4 dis luvly creation!!!
The Black DS Lite is the first thing ive ever purchased from PlayAsia. Put the order in Saturday night and recieved the package on Wednesday. Great tracking service and speed. Now the DS, i am very happy with it. Packaged neat and tightly, and the free USB Charger is awesome. No dead pixels or scratches though it is a finger print magnet.
5 Stars (I would give more if I could)
Like naruswega, I said to everyone that I wouldn't get a DS Lite until a pink one came out. I pre-ordered it two days after it was announced and it was shipped out to me on the 21st July. It was delivered on the Monday (24th) but as I was on holiday I couldn't have it until the Wednesday (26th). I am so happy with my purchase and loads of than ks to play-asia for getting it to me, even though there were a few complications with my bank!
5 stars! *****
I preordered the pink DS the 3rd day after they started taking preordering and finally on july 21st they shipped it. I did take over 1 week, i think 10 days including sat and sunday, but I guess it's normal. I live in Connecticut. And yes the system is just so pretty and cute, i love the color. I think the extra money is worth it! US will not have this on the market i just know it. well yes it's true they didn't include the usb cable, but it should, i contacted play-asia and they responded and said they will ship it out to me that same day. It dosen't matter too much but i like to have the option of charging on the usb.
I would definitely order from play-asia again. I ordered my noble Pink DS lite on Sunday night and it was at my door on Wednesday morning, and it is in perfect condition. Before I purchased the DS lite I had a question and a play-asia associate responded with in 3 hours. Great Product & Service too.
I'd just like to say the service here at play-asia.com rules with a big iron fist. That's right... A BIG IRON FIST.
No really... These guys are awesome. They answered all of my questions and put this skeptical american's mind at ease. Not to mention that when my order shipped, it arrived in something like a day or two! Yes, i'm doing business with these guys again!
egg lub it ^^
This nintendo ds lite (noble pink) is just soooooo ca-ute!! But i never tried it but i played the Nintendo DS lite (ice blue) ice blue and noble pink are just so cute!! i want 1!! but i'm in america. when i get the moneyy i'll ask my uncle 2 order it for me and i'm ordering it from here!
I kept telling my self I would never buy a DS lite (since I had the original) unless a PINK one came out! And it finally did, so I ordered one. I just recieved it in the mail today, and I have to say, it is the BEST!
Its gorgeous and pink~! what more could anyone want?
i knew it'd have to be an awesome color for me to retire my beloved red ds - so when i saw the pink, i knew to make the switch.
i was afraid it would be too pepto pink, but it's not, it's an attractive baby pink. and NO DEAD PIXELS, very happy about that.
i don't think i got the free usb charger, but that's cool, because they sent these awesome little fizzy candies. and so everyone knows, the shipping is AWESOME. it shipped on friday and arrived at 9 am monday morning all the way to michigan.
thanks play asia for being so great.
While I have yet to play the Noble Pink version, I own a Crystal White DS Lite (Rhymes!!!), and it's completely amazing!!!
The Duck Has Spoken.
i love it a - ok
I just got my new DS in the mail and wow i have never seen anyhting so sleak and shiny i love it. When i turned it on it was a blast of brightness to my eyes and a tear ran down my face it was so beauitful, yes a tear. And now me and my wonderful black DS will be happy together forever.
great looking system. i got it today and it looks even better than the pics online. thanks play-asia
man this thing rocks! havent even tried out the different light settings, but im glad i made this purchase even after paying about 180 for the original (graphite) ds! if you love the ds and havent gotten around to getting this one DO IT! save up your money, its a good upgrade. and start saving for the wii! =)
There hasn't been a GameBoy ((& yes ADMIT IT it IS the NEW GameBoy)) like this since the Original 3-Tone GreyScaled Brick Sized GameBoy.
The DS Lite is sleek, sexy, & in everyway better then the DS Phat EXCEPT the GBA games stick-out about 2.5 centimeters ((which isn't really a problem)) I don't notice it when I do play GBA games, I plan to snag the DS Lite Rumble Pak soon and just use my Micro for GBA games.
If this is your first time buying a Lite or even if you've owned one since the Jap launch I do
Recommend ordering a Hori Screen Protector & possibly a Hori Cleaning Cloth they're both AMAZING I just ordered them myself knowing frmo previous purchases like my PSP Screen Protector, Extendo DS Phat Stylus, and DragonQuest Slime Controller that Hori makes AMAZING High Quality products.
If you're in need of a DS Carry Case Hori also has a Slim Sleek Carry Case & my personal fav the Multi-Pouch Carry Case ((which I just Ordered)) check other reviews on those before you pick them up if you want to see more Good Reviews!!!
I hope this makes you want a Lite because if you don't you're CRAZY!

I just got my Black DS Lite today and THANK GOODNESS it does not have any dead pixels..
This is really nice system. MUCH BETTER THAN REGULAR NDS!! The color black makes this DS Lite look extra nice.
By the way, although it is kinda hard to tell the difference by the photo, but Black DS Lite and Enamel Navy DS Lite look completely different when its compared. (My friend has Enamel Navy DS Lite)
I really appreciate Play-Asia for making this awsome DS Lite available to shoppers.
Thank you very much for Ramune candy gift also.
I really like candies like these haha. ^_^
P.S. I just would like to let everyone know, All 220V DS Lites are compatible to 110V (Japan/US Ver.) AC Adapter.
I just got mine today. It's really really nice. No flaws in it or anything. It arrived quickly, and the candy tasted pretty good. Thanks yes-asia :)
Shipped on friday, received it last monday.
This sleek, region-exclusive handheld has become the perfect aesthetic companion to the Gold DS I had ordered a few months prior. The complimentary USB charger is a nice touch as well. Thank you Play-Asia!
I was amazed to get my black ds lite ONE DAY after they shipped it out. From Hong Kong to New York in 24 hours. That's amazing. The system looks beautiful. It's so tiny and sleek looking. It does get fingerprints very easily so it's pretty high maintainance, but I just clean it off and it looks hot. I'm impressed.
Ordered my Blue DS Lite and got it within 2 days of ordering. Service is fantastic. Comparing the Blue Lite to the Black Lite I got my wife, I have to admit, that the Black looks just that little bit more expensive and just a little nicer.
The screens are even sharper than the original DS however I find the colours to be slightly washed out for some colours and overly contrasty for others.
The d-pad isn't nearly as sensitive as the original and to be honest I don't really like it. I prefer the original as it was much more responsive and I had a much better feel for what was going to happen when I moved my thumb.
Overall a superb piece of hardware but I can't help thinking that there are some bits on it are 'cheap' and not as good as the original!
You have to get this system. Period. If you already have a DS, stop living in the past. Anything your old DS can do mine can do better. And if your in America and your saying "I'll just get the white one", I say to you...Why? Why get the same white one all your friends have, be different. And if you dont like the Ice Blue color because you think it looks like a bar of Irish Spring soap, then worry not! There are 4 more unamerican colors to chose from. Pick the one you like, but dont be restricted to only one color. Its brighter, smaller, sleeker, and just plan sexy. Nintendo shows once again why they are the Kings of Portable Consoles. I hope my review will persuade you to buy a DS Lite.
I love the new lite!
It's worth every cent over the old DS.
Woot! It came in yesterday and as soon as I got back from work I fired it up. WOW! Those screens are like looking directly into the sun. I knew they where bright. I had tried out the White DSL in stores and at E3. But you can really tell with the Black. The Contrasting colors (lit screens, black surounding) really make the screens pop! And I'm seeing colors in games I never knew where there before.
Plus, the Black casing is so much more sexier than white. The only downside is it's a fingerprint magnet. Very minor annoyance that's really a non-issue.
I would give it 10 stars if I could!
This is my third or fourth order and again...PERFECTION. Well packed and insulated for the long trip to Michigan. Charged it up and works great. No pixel issues. No complaints. Congrats again on a job well done. Back to the DS Lite...In Black!!
Well my Black DS lite just came via UPS today only after 3 days! I was so excited I opened it up and everything was happy. until... I turned on a game and I found 1 dead pixel on the touch screen and then another on the top screen... well that pretty much made me feel bad... I don't know what to do now! I don't know if Play asia takes returns but i'm guessing no... Well at least I have free candy USB charger and a cool carrying case... sigh maybe i'll give Nintendo a call...
Buyer's beware there might be dead pixels...
I've been waiting for a black ds forever! It was worth the wait. This system is so sleek and nice. The only downside of the black system is fingerprints. Oh well its not that big of a deal as long as you have a cleaning cloth for it. It's the hottest ds yet, without a doubt!
ordered one for my boyfriend, just got here this morning! Absolutely gorgeous. I love the white but the black is hot!
All I can say... is WOW, Nintendo have really out done themselves again! The DS Lite is such a huge improvement on the original DS! Words can't explain the clarity and vibrancy of the new DS Lite Screens. The whole redesign is perfect, except for one thing and that is how easy it is to put finger prints on the DS Lite :(
All in All the DS Lite is awesome!
Guess who they all envy in my office now hehe ;)
Many thanks to Play-Asia.com for the Speedy Delivery and Excellent Service!
I love the Ice Blue color, that is what sold me. I almost couldn't help myself. Plus Animal Crossing helps :)
I really like the innovation of the DS and the new DS Lite is even cooler looking and has a very clear bright screen. Im hooked!
I came today! i LOVE IT SOO MUCH i WANT TO HUG IT ALOOTTT!!!
Hi i bought my DS Lite off of here a while back now and im just writing this review to let people know about the new system and how it compares to the old.
design: well the DS Lite has been given a new sleak look, with the white one the clear plastic on it has a kind of white iPod look to it. they also have given you a GBA filler cartridge so it can mantain the sleak look when you dont ahve a GBA game in there.
size: wel the size is much smaller than the old system and you could actully remove the entire top hindge part of the old DS! the Lite is the same thickness as the bottom half of the old system.
Button: the "start" and "select" buttons have been moved to just below the "A" "B" "X" "Y" buttons and this works much better than the old systen. also the power button is now a slider on the right side of the console.
Screen: the screen one the Lite is amazing! it has 4 brightness settings, the first being dim the last is amazingly bright, brighter even so than the PSP screen!
Battery: wel for the 4 brightness settings it goes like this 1st, 15-19hr. 2nd 10-15hr. 3rd 7-11hr. 4th. 5-8hr. but there is'ent an acurate setting for how much battery life remains unlike in the PSP where you are told exactly how much longer it will last, like the old system there is a bar on the top screen in the top right corner on the system display menu. but it is either full or almost empty, which does'ent really help!
and as for the GBA cartridges, they do stick out of the system bout 1cm but does'ent affect gameplay as your games are totally free of the cartridge slot when playing games.
je viens de recevoir ma ds lite bleue foncé aujourd'hui, elle est magnifique, et en plus il y a un petit paquet de bonbon japonais dans le colis c'est trop gentil. Très bon site pour acheter des jeux ou consoles japonaises.
I ordered this item on a monday late in the afternoon and received it 2 days later. Wow. the box looked like had never been touched and the DS inside was perfect. I was a little worried becuase i have never ordered anything import before, but this turned out to be a great experience. Free USB charger too! Can't go wrong. I will deffinately order from Play-Asia in the future!
Yeah Im getting my Ice Blue one wednesfday so itll be here friday =DD
I know it's comming here but it's only coming out in "Polar ice" as they call it. Not the ice blue. Also I couldn't wait. lol
Fast shipping, 2,5days from shipping day from china 2 Norway thats impressive!, backage was in perfect condition and great customer service!
My mom even play on the DS lite (Brain age), lol
I just got mine. I'm....at a loss of words right now. It's beautiful.
I ordered friday night, and it was shipped monday morning---it arrived at my house at about 10 am on tuesday--the ds is great and is so much better than the original, the packaging was very good too, very safe, and they sent candy as well, my friend was right when he reffered play-asia to import from.
Bon, j'ai reçu ma DSlite en 3 jours, et elle est subilme.
Aucun pixel mort à signaler.Le design est vraiment de bon goût.
Je suis agréablement surpris par la qualité et les finitions de ce systeme portable, surtout venant de la part de Nintendo!
Ma PSP à côté fait obslete....c'est dire.
Achetez ce bijou avec le nouveau mario, satisfaction assurée!!
Thanks Play-Asia for the service as usual!!BUY IT !
It's just unbelieveable!...I can't even describe its "awesomeness"! The graphics seem a lot more improved with the brighter light, and has a LOT longer battery life. Not to mention how much smaller and sleek it looks. GO DSL (DS Lite)!! WOOOO!!!
Just got the unit. Well packed. Item was in absolute mint condition. I am now considering a white PSP from PlayAsia due to the quality of this transaction. Great service. Great item. Very pleased and this went from Hong Kong to Walled Lake, Michigan with no problems at all!! Highest Recommendation
This was my first order for a system. They took the DS box, packed it in bubble wrap, then placed it in another box, then slid it into the UPS shipping envelope. It arrived in PERFECT CONDITION. I received a case I ordered for it, a free USB powering cable, and some candy thrown in. When I opened the box...the DS was absolutely stunning. This color is fantastic. Dark navy blue (almost black). I am thinking of a white PSP next. I will most definitely order it from Play-Asia. I could not be happier. Great transaction and it went all the way to Walled Lake, Michigan in the USA and no problem at all. Highest recommendation!!
wicked...receieved within 3 days after ordering. very impressed. recommended purchase. no dead pixels. love it
My DS Lite arrived today. Thank you for your rapid delivery and complimentary candies, PlayAsia!
The screens really have to be seen to be believed. Mario Kart looks so vibrant and the Lite's screens really bring out the detail on the tracks. It is also much easier on the hands, the old DS gave me cramp when I played MK!
Can't wait to show the Lite off at work. :)
I am getting mine when it arrives in the USA stores(June, 11 2006) and I kinda feel bad for you lexie because its going to arrive here really soon!
Ordered on Friday, recieved Monday. Package in great condition, and they also sent candy as well ^^
PlayAsia is the best!
(PS DS Lite > DS)
This site looks absolutly awsome! I love the DS's I saw the DS lite and HAD to have one! one month later and BAM I'm on the computer ordering mine right now!! I can't wait to get it!
I thought of a few things to say about this great system,
but truballin said everything I had in mind. So PLEASE buy one, you will not regret it. THANK YOU Play-Asia!!!!
All i have to say is WOW. Super fast play asia shipping and my DS lite is in perfect condition. No dead pixels or any other defects. The DS lite is truly a beauty, especially compared to the old DS. This is much much better especially compared to screen brightness and size of the old one. The ds lite is sleek as hell and you will not regret your purchase. Also, thank you play asia for the free complementary candies. I will order from you again :)
I recently got mine at long last a few days ago, and boy, you really notice the difference after you use the old DS Phat for a year!
The D-pad takes a little bit getting used to, but that's the same with all change really, but you get used to the amazing brightness of the screen right away! It makes the old DS look pretty poor! The buttons also have a much more comfortable feel to them.
As for weight, you really don't feel the weight of the DS Lite very much, not compared to the old one which would give me hand aches if I held it for too long, it also would drag my trousers down when I had it in my pocket, not anymore!
The touchscreen has improved as well, it doesn't look as grainy as it used to, and the stylus included is larger so it makes it easier to use as well.
Seriously man, if you're planning on getting yourself a DS if you don't already have one, you simply must purchase the DS Lite, and not the DS.
The only drawbacks however are that the speakers aren't as loud as it's predecessor, and that the GBA slot is smaller, meaning GBA Games stick out, but to be honest that doesn't really matter because if you probably won't want to be playing GBA games anymore soon, and it comes with a special cover for the slot.
It is much better than my old NDS.The screen is even brighter than the psp.Amazing!!
Thank u play-asia,thx for the free candy,it is nice too:)
I just revieced my NDS Lite and it is quite amazing, it works with my American games and you can change the language setting. The delivery has very, very fast. It took 4 days to come to me in America from Hong Kong! I would buy this a thousand times over!
Oh meh goshies! This DS Lite ish teh best! I like the Enemal Navy too! I don't know which one to decide though..
Much better in the new colors!
My birthday is next month and my boyfriend said he will order this for me! I love the Ice Blue colour! Now all I need is Animal Crossing and Nintendogs..
Wow, I just got my DS Lite today and it is simply awesome. Thanks Play-Asia!
My DS lite arrived yesterday, it took it four days from Hong Kong to Norway!
The DS lite is everything you've ever dreamt of and more! It's beautiful to look at, comfortably to hold, and shines up everywhere it goes! The display is just amazing! Four levels of brightness! OMG!!
No dead pixels so far either! I love my DS lite! I love Play-Asia! And I got this candy-thing for free! Yum-yum!
Everyone knows the DsLite is great, I just got mines today, its charging to be ready for work! But I was want to say that this online store is top notch!!! The live UPS tracking is a great feature, and after I got my DsLite I opened it to find that play-asia even threw in some asian candy for free. Its these little things that makes me keep coming back here! THANK YOU PLAY-ASIA!!!!!!
Although i ordered this on the 18th of Feb it only arrived today but i can say that it was worth the wait and it only took 2 days to arrive from hong kong. Very pleased with the console it really is alot smaller and the screens are 10 times better the pictures you see just do not do it justice at all
This was definitely worth the wait. The screen brightness makes the colors much more vivid, the hinge for the top screen is very solid when pulled all the way back, the buttons are perfect, and it's sexy. Nintendo has done excellent, and I hope a lot more people will get this once it comes stateside.
It took me 2 days, thats right, 2 days to get my DS Lite. I'm very satisfied with the product (no dead pixels or anything), and it was worth the cost. Play-Asia is definitely going on my favorites list.
I ordered the Enamel Blue DS Lite and found out that it was significantly delayed due to production issues. When I finally received it (1 DAY after it was shipped!), the package included a GBA game, one which I did not order. I went onto their site and checked around to see if I could find out what was going on, and they mentioned that to "compensate" the lengthy delays, they would include a special surprise for all DS Lite backorders. How many companies would do something like this? Order from them, you will NOT be disappointed. 5 Stars!
I think when I get my Nintendo DS Lite(June) I will use it for hours! I have seen people play it and its absolutely brighter, Clearer,Liter and pretty much more! The stylus is indeed bigger and the power button is now on the side! I used to lose my data especially on Animal Crossing Wild World(Man I hate Resetti!) and now it won't do that anymore! I also here that it might go online! No Java or Flash but still!
This DS lite is so Beautiful!!! I love it! Its so compact and shine. I think I have a new love. Is so rocks! I am so happy I can't stop touching it, talking about it and showing it off. My best part about it would be how bright the screen it is.
Took more than two weeks to arrive and it has a dead pixel, but I love this thing. Its so small and it looks much much better than the previous DS. Plus the screen looks very good.
Well i have to give it to play asia. I ordered the DS Lite (Cyrstal Lite) back in late feb before it came out.
When launch date came they released a statement explaining why they dont have any to send. And then sometime later the blue/gay blue versions became available. I decided to just wait out on the white since I wasnt in any hurry. Well it finally shipped 3 days ago.
It only took 3 days to get from HK to here. And boy was I glad because it came with a GBA game (f-zero) and it's regular japanese packaging. The DS Lite is everything people have already said it is. What more can I say than Nyah! :P
I looked everywhere, then found it here on PlayAsia and it only took 3 day's to get here. My friends told me it would take alot longer... BOOYAH in there faces =D
Thank you PlayAsia!
I ordered my blue DS lite on monday and recieved it wednesday 9:32 am in Oakland California properly packed the DS lite comes in a box about 1 quarter the size of the old ds box and the DS is beautifuly small an d compact , no more feeling embarrassed about pulling it outin public (if your an adult) you have to set up your DS using Japanese but it is easy to get through once you figure out which character means confirm but after that if you use english games everything will be in english. once again thnx Play-asia your the best and you make our world a little smaller
Merci d'avoir pris ma commande aussi vite, je viens de recevoir la nintendo ds lite.
I ordered it sunday and it got here today, very fast it took roughly 3 days. What is there to say about DS Lite besides sexy, sleek, and awesome....this is great Nintendo and Play Asia = Deadly Combo :p
It's sad. Now that I have the Lite my old DS is no longer in use. The DS lite has a wonderful iPod inspired-shiny-look and overall it's a LOT prettier. The screens are almost too bright on the highest level. You can use this thing as a torch. ;)
Thanks for this gorgeous handheld Play-Asia.
After so much trouble trying to get one of these, Play-Asia came through no problem. Only took 3 days to get to the UK and it's perfect, it totally owns the old model. Play-Asia are honest and totally professional so thanks to them for bringing me my DS Lite!!! I can't recommend them highly enough!!!
Received my nintendo ds lite this friday im unbelieveable happy the ds is worth in my eyes and play-asia did best to send it as fast as possible XD im happy really happy
received my Enamel Navy DS Lite last week-absolutely brilliant and Play-Asia even included a free Gameboy advance game! thank you so much-you are the best online store I have ever used!
Although Nintendo had trouble getting the lite produced fast enough play asia got it to me in OH in 1 1/2 days after my preorder arrived in their warehouse. Excellent Work Play Asia. Now for the DS Lite itself, all you questioning whether it will be worth it if you already have a ds, I have done my own side by side and yes it is not only worth it but negates the reason to even hang on to your old ds, there is that much of a difference.
Mine just shipped today, I am so excited to get it, you rock playasia!
the nds lite is smaller,lichter,sexyer,have,sajusteble contrast,the buttons are not to deep placed,the accu will have twice the power as the 1# nds for 20 hour,s of gameplay,thw styles strap is now much longerthen earlier,some buttons are now be placed on another place for a better confort fits more easier in the pocket,includes now 2 licht indicaters,the buttom of the ndslite has for now the same matched color
as color from the desing( not ugly black ennymore), comes with gba cartride protector.
you too just wonder how you were impress the 1# nds
this is a must have
I just received mine today and it looks marvelous!! It's very shiny! The buttons are in a better location than the old DS. On the old DS I would always accidentally press the power button and lose my game. On the DS Lite the power button is on the side of the console and not the front. The stylus is also bigger! It's stored on the side and not the back which is also more convenient. My favorite part is the screen. It's way brighter and appears to be a lot clearer. I love it!!
