This is the premium metallic silver DS. Only 1000 will be manufactured for Club Nintendo in Japan. They are also making 1000 premium metallic rose, and 1000 premium metallic black.

Pretty cool, But could care less to own it. I already have a Zelda DS, And I guess you want this just for the sake of having it?.

Honestly - Yes. I like things that sport the chrome look :)

I already have a white DS. But I will say this: That thing's gonna be a fingerprint magnet.

This shit has got to be driving the US DS collectors crazy. I'm betting a few people reading this thread just gave up on completing their DS collections.

I was just talking to a gamestop guy (I actually know this person for years though outside of gamestop) and told him it'd be awesome to get a chrome ds... looks like 1000 people will ;)

I would be obsessively polishing that thing forever. If I took it somewhere, I'd need a cleaning kit with one of those lens-cleaning rags as part of the travel accessories..

Sexy as heck though

Ugh, as a system variant collector I can say that it's rough collecting DSes. It's a never-ending sea of colors and designs. I've stopped picking up the color variants and am focusing on special editions... but might have to pick one of these up. Found a few in the $400-$500 range, possibly a bit cheaper through a JP game shop. Will post pics if I end up pulling the trigger.

Have you read off topic lately?

the Solar flares of 2012 will fry that piece of garbage.

Spend the money on 12 gauge shells and powdered milk.

I would recommend a pair of white gloves. Don't play without 'em.

might i suggest encasing it in a block of acrylic. Won't make gameplay any easier BUT it wont get fingerprints on it either ;). Or you could be the first person ever to slab and grade a ds :-P
