DS Lite heads for June price drop
Thursday 02 June 2011
Nintendo's handheld DS Lite console is to benefit from a $30 price drop on June 5, falling from $129 to $99, following the release of its successor, the 3DS, and a similar $50 cut applied to the Nintendo Wii.
Six Mario games are also to be re-introduced in a new red-colored box: New Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart DS, Super Mario 64 DS, Mario vs Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, and Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.
Though the new color scheme mimics that of the Wii's budget best-sellers, the Nintendo Selects line, there's no accompanying bargain tag affixed to the re-packaged Mario titles as of yet.
The pricing news comes ahead of Nintendo's June 7 presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.
The company is set to reveal its new home console, currently known as Project Café, which is thought to make use of a touchscreen controller.
Sony is to promote its successor to the PSP handheld, provisionally named the NGP, at an E3 media briefing on June 6.
