Nintendo slashes DS Lite down to $100

updated 11:30 am EDT, Tue May 31, 2011

Handheld first introduced in 2006

Nintendo announced that it is dropping the suggested retail price of the DS Lite to $100, effective June 5. The move adds weight to reports that the handheld has been discontinued. A recently leaked internal memo from GameSpot indicated that Nintendo is retiring the DS Lite and would no longer produce the system.

Nintendo introduced the DS Lite in 2006, in response to complaints that the screen on the original DS system was too dark and hard to see.

Nintendo also announced that it was repackaging six of its "Mario" themed games for the DS Lite to be more recognizable. The new packaging will be used for New Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart DS, Super Mario 64 DS, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! and Mario Party DS.
