Two more colors of the very popular game console have been released in Japan

Following last week's launch of one color of the Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo released the Enamel Navy and Ice Blue version of the popular handheld console.  Thousands of anxious consumers waited in cold weather for the release a mere nine days ago -- but the release of the Enamel Navy and Ice Blue brought out longer lines.     

On Saturday, game fans showed they were still hot for the new models. One electronics store in downtown Osaka stocked some 2,100 of the gadgets but sold out in only 2 1/2 hours after opening at 6:45 a.m., three hours earlier than usual.

Interested consumers in North America will most likely have to wait a long period before being able to puchase the DS Lite from retail stores.  If you simply can't wait until the unit is available outside of Japan, there are a few models available on Ebay for a hefty price.  Nintendo of America has not set a date on when the DS Lite will be available for consumers in North America.

Eat that Sony! GO nintendo :) Obviously both DS and PSP have weakeness and strengths but in my opinion DS is much better not because im nintendo fan but because it just has so many games thats its unbelievable. And the games are really good especially Mario Kart online, which is the best game on DS. PSP doesnt really have that many titles out yet, most of the users buy PSP for music and emulators which u can do on ur computer... I know that nintendo are working hard to get all their customers satisfied, atleast nintendo is nice enough to atleast Apologize on their website about the shortage. Sony never does that...
