It Doesn't Matter if You're Black or White... or Pink

So I can finally stop asking when Nintendo is going to release a non-white version of the DS Lite, because black and pink (okay, onyx and coral pink, but whatever) will be out on September 13th! Woot! Regular DS is starting to annoy me because it's really pretty ugly. This will also be the second time I have repurchased what is essentially the same exact Nintendo handheld with a prettier and slightly improved design (GBA and GBA SP was the last one). Damn you Nintendo!

In not-really-related news I was looking for a post I made complaining about the DS Lite when I found a post where I complained about FEAR being on five CDs instead of one DVD. Well I recently ordered Prey from GoGamer because it was on sale for $30, and it turns out I got sent the European DVD edition. That is to say it's the standard version of the game on DVD, and it comes in a regular DVD case! It's awesome! Why the hell don't we have this shit in America? We're supposed to be the most powerful and annoying country in the world yet we don't release standard editions of games on DVD? Lame. Prey is okay, by the way. It's fun, but not worth full price. I may have a review up when I finish it, because I've taken a lot of screenshots with the intent of writing a review so I may as well put them to use.

Update (8/27 2:09am): Okay I just beat Prey and I sort of take back what I said. I'm not sure if it's worth $50 still, but the end is a lot of fun, and I think overall it was a pretty fun game. Nothing great, but lots of fun combat with lots of monsters and stuff coming in waves and such. If you can get it cheap, I'd say go for it.
