Nintendo DS Gold and Pink
Nintendo today jumpstarted the sales of its DS Lite handheld system with a pair of models with unique colors and game bundles. The Gold model comes with the Zelda game Phantom Hourglass and reflects this with a special Triforce logo from the game on the outer lid. A counterpart Metallic Rose model substitutes Nintendogs and adds a paw print in place of the earlier logo. Both systems are otherwise the same as their original dual-screened counterparts
The game console designer does not suggest an altered price for the console, which sells for $130 in its standard form. The bundle may reach this price level in part due to exceptional sales provided by Nintendo, which show the DS Lite selling 4.5 million units so far in 2007 and 458,000 in October alone.
