Pink ribbon DS Lite
In an effort to show its support for breast cancer research and promote awareness, Nintendo has launched a limited edition DS Lite portable gaming console in polar white with a pink ribbon. The console is available for purchase on Amazon‘s online store, and Nintendo pledges that $5 from the sale of every limited edition Pink Ribbon DS Lite will be donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure charity, and guaranteed a minimum donation of $100,000 even if it doesn‘t sell the 20,000 DS Lites or otherwise raise the minimum amount.
Apart from the color scheme on the gaming console itself and its packaging, the pink ribbon DS Lite is identical in specs to other DS Lites. This includes the dual screens with a touch-screen on the bottom, a Wi-Fi connection that allows users to play compatible games with users from around the world for free and network support for up to 16 players with one copy of the game as the most notable features. An included media port makes the system backwards compatible with Game Boy Advance games.
The limited edition portable gaming system is available now, priced at nearly $130, or the same price as other DS Lite portable consoles.
