It's really just a redesign with a much brighter screen and very compact design plus alot of the buttons are moved around and the ugly hole where GBA games are supposed to be can be covered up. The volume controls are alot less sensative. And the buttons are softer. It holds a nice charge too.

I wouldn't suggest buying it if you play handhelds casually because it's not an obligatory upgrade, and really it's just for those who want a improved version of the DS. But now that I have played it a little, it's definitely worth it to me. The handheld is sleek as hell.

Oh forgot to mention. There is only one downside I can see with it. The GBA cartridges stick out a couple centimters from the bottom. Doesn't mess with the game at all or scratch the system. Just looks funky.

Now I know this isn't newsworthy, well not to me at least, but how starved for Zelda gaming do you have to be to purchase this title coming soon.

Just bough Shadow of Colossus for the PS2, have to wait til tomorrow though to play it, going home, as that is where my ps2 is

Game looks excellent though from trailers, a real gaming work of art, packaging is nice too...reviews have been excellent (same development team as ICO).....and it just really intrigues me.

Hmm maybe we should start doing our own game reviews?

Sorry for the lack of updates my Gaming Pals. I am currently in the process of moving to Las Vegas so in the mean time we are shacking up at my grandma's house. Her computer has a REALLY slow dial-up connection so it's difficult checkin up on all the news lately. But I always need to post sales numbers so you guys can see what's hot and what's not.

With that being said, here are the Media Create numbers for this week of June!

Software
1.) NSMB (NDS) - 244,882 / 1,478,608
2.) Pachislot (PS2) - 100967 / NEW
3.) Brain Age 2 (NDS) - 52,876 / 2,476,775
4.) Winning Eleven (PS2) - 34,880 / 761,407
5.) Brain Age (NDS) - 34,760 / 2,357,730
6.) Animal Crossing (NDS) - 25,355 / 2,800,004
7.) English Training (NDS) - 23,130 / 1,141,623
8.) Tetris DS (NDS) - 21,710 / 596,585
9.) Mario Kart DS (NDS) - 11,880 / 1,424,882
10.) Pokemon Ranger (NDS) - 11,646 / 574,231

Unconfirmed Hardware
1.) DSL - 132,027
2.) PSP - 21,656
3.) PS2 - 18,981
4.) GBASP - 4,116
5.) GBM - 1,654
6.) DS - 1,371
7.) Xbox360 - 1,100
8.) GC - 961

^The reason I'll keep this as unconfirmed is that the GBA and Xbox numbers are missing. But they should be at about 10-20.
