Lite up for the summer

Ever have trouble seeing your Nintendo DS' screens in bright light? Think the handheld system could be a little more, you know, smaller? Good news - the thinner, redesigned DS Lite is coming to the US on June 11 for a suggested price of $129.99.

When it launched in Japan earlier this year, there were massive, instant sellouts across the nation. Why are people so damn excited about a piece of hardware they technically may already own?

We suggest you check out ourdetailed breakdown of why the Lite is totally worth the cash. We're not usually ones to rave on and on about reissued goods, but this time we'll make an exception.
