  • Brothers In Arms DS Gameplay Video

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=20836 I don’t know much about this video other than it’s part of the Brothers in Arms series of video games. Those graphics look absolutely sick though for the Nintendo DS. Gameplay doesn’t look half bad either. Makes me want to buy a DS again! Brothers In Arms DS: Whoah [Kotaku] Read More

  • Really Hot New DS Lite Colors: Metallic Rose and Glossy Silver

    Nintendo of Japan will release Metallic Rose and Glossy Silver DS Lites on June 23. That makes seven colors that you can find the DS Lite in over there. I was a dope and bought the white one when it first launched here, but I had my eye on this one before it went out of stock. Read More

  • CrunchArcade: Puzzles on the Portables


    Big things do indeed come in small packages, and this is notably true of the some of the latest puzzle games for the Nintendo DS and Sony PlayStation Portable. These offerings might not be overly complex, but don’t call them simplistic. They’re the types of games that are easy to learn, hard to master and even harder to put down. More importantly puzzle games are also the kind… Read More

  • The Worst Nintendo DS Ever

    The worst I’ve seen in the world of pre-owned consoles and games is a console missing an AC adaptor or a game missing its box and instruction manual. However, nothing compares this Nintendo DS that’s on display in Shibuya, Japan. Tsutaya is selling a used Nintendo DS with the following items missing and damage done:
    No box No instruction manual No stylus No strap No AC… Read More

  • $600 Swarovski-encrusted Nintendo DS Lites

    Throw some Swarovski crystals on damn near anything and you’ll generate buzz. Today’s belle of the ball is these Swarovski-encrusted Nintendo DS Lites, found in the Nintendo World Store in New York. It’s the same DS we know and love, just rice’d out like a high school senior’s 12-year-old Honda Civic. They’re even on sale: only $600 separates you from… Read More

  • DS-Xtreme Flash "Homebrew" Cart Now 2GB, Still $129

    We looked at the DS-Xtreme Nintendo DS piracy enabler (let’s be honest here: that’s what you’ll use it for) a little while back, but a common complaint against it was that it only packed 512MB of storage. Not true anymore. Now the DS-Xtreme comes with 2GB of storage for the same price as before, $129 (the same price as the DS itself, incidentally). Just think of how many… Read More

  • Guy Turns Nintendo DS Into An iPod

    Behold the mystery of YouTube yet again folks. Here we have a video of someone running a virtual iPod on his or her Nintendo DS. Using the touch screen and stylus, the user operates the iPod’s clickwheel while the iPod’s display appears on the top DS screen. And does it play music? Oh hell yes. No clue on how this works, but a very cool/hip/urban/rad/gnarly use of the DS. Guy… Read More

  • New Nintendo DS Screen Coming?


    If colorful Nintendo Wiis don’t catch your attention, maybe speculation of a Nintendo DS does. A few popular Japanese blogs and forums have information posted revolving around a new Nintendo DS handheld, which will feature bigger screens for both top and bottom panels. The screens will measure 3.5 to 3.8-inches (currently they are both 3-inches on the DS Lite.) I’m confident… Read More

  • DS: "I Want To Be Like Wii!"

    If you’ve been wishing your Nintendo DS was more like the Nintendo Wii, the DS motion card may be something to look into. The motion card plugs into the DS card slot and features a 3-axis accelerometer and single-axis gyroscope, turning your DS into a motion-sensing ‘Tenda. At the moment, there are only a few apps that support the motion-sensing card (DSaSketch, Sprout and Water… Read More

  • Philips 5-in-1 Portable Video Game Charger


    I suppose some of us out there have our streams crossed and are as equally addicted to Brain Age as Liberty City Stories. Unfortunately, traveling with multiple portable game systems means traveling with multiple charge cords. Philips Universal Handheld Travel Charger & Adaptor 5-in-1 charger juices up your Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo GBA, Nintendo GBA Micro, and PSP (although… Read More

  • DSMIDIWiFi: Nintendo DS Wireless MIDI Controller

    This is totally mind-blowing. Some guys have developed a way to use the Nintendo DS as a MIDI controller wirelessly. DSMIDIWiFi uses the Nintendo DS’ touch screen as a controller and sends the signals wirelessly to a host program on your computer, like Garageband, Ableton Live, or whatever you use for creating music. The creators have written three different programs for your… Read More

  • SHOCK! Case for Nintendo DS

    The SHOCK! case is essentially a complete overhaul of the Nintendo DS Lite housing. It comes in a variety of colors, including clear (although I guess clear isn’t technically a color, but yea you get the point), so, like Raj, you can color coordinate to your hear’s content. More importantly though, the SHOCK! case provides an update to the brittle hinge found on the DS Lite. There… Read More

  • How to De-gloss Your Glossy Nintendo DS

    What do you get when you combine a man with a glossy DS Lite and a hatred for gloss? A sanded down DS Lite, of course. A guy took a file, a buffering tool, and some sandpaper to the front and back of the DS. The result is a mostly matted finish with some glossy parts around the lettering on the back that he didn’t want to sand off. A warning though, the intermediate shots on his site… Read More
