Nintendo DS Lite gets Gold and Metallic Rose bundles Earlier this week, Nintendo offered up two new bundles of the Nintendo DS Lite handheld console. The DS Lite is one of the hottest selling gadgets across the world, and is sure to sell out during the holiday season. To entice buyers and keep sales as high as possible, Nintendo is offering a Gold model that comes with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and so sports a Triforce logo from the game on the outer lid.
The Metallic Rose model comes with a copy of Nintendogs and so sports a paw on the outer lid. These traits are the only things that separate the models from the normal DS Lite models. The bundles have not come with a new suggested price from Nintendo, but the DS Lite itself sells usually for $130.

So far in 2007, the Nintendo DS has moved millions of units across the world, and NPD U.S. figures showed more than 458,000 were sold there in October alone.

Yeah i know! Different color equals higher price? Very very stupid. As a matter of fact I do believe you can get a gold Special edition ZELDA DS which doesn't justify the price. I could see buying a special edition of a comic book or magazine (since the value goes up over time) but all you have to do it look on ebay for the limited edition RED NES!!!! OOOOOHHHH yeah........ sorry..... still worthless.
