Beginning on June 19th, the DS Lite will drop from 16,800 to "open pricing," which allows retailers to name their own price on the device.

The popular DSi will drop from 18,900 to 15,000.

Dropping from 20,000 to 18,000 is the new DSi LL, which has 93 percent bigger screens than the DSi.

Additionally, Nintendo is releasing new colorways of the DSi LL; Blue, Yellow and Green. The console currently sells in Wine Red, Dark Brown and Natural White colorways.

Nintendo has sold over 30 million DS units (in all iterations) in Japan, and over 125 million worldwide.
