DS Lite!

Nintendo revealed the other day that they are working on a smaller, redesigned DS. It will be known as the DS Lite. In addition to being smaller, the screen will have four levels of brightness. Some of the face buttons have been altered as well. The A, B, X, and Y buttons have all been made larger and the start and select buttons have been moved. The D-pad has also changed to the same used on the Gameboy Micro (that means it'll be less clicky and easier to control. The microphone has been moved to the center of the system and power button is now a slide-switch on the side (like the SP). The stylus will also be stored horizontally rather than vertically. Other than these improvements, the system will function exactly the same. It'll be available March 3rd in Japan and late spring in the US.
