    Anyone seen or bought a silver Nintendo DS Lite ?

    I'm about to buy a DS Lite and am interested in the new silver one.

    Problem is that I'd like to actually see it first before I part with my cash.

    I currently own a silver GBA and was hoping the silver DS would have the same "chrome-style" finish.
    However, I've heard that the silver DS has a much more "sparkly and bright" finish, and that put me off some-what (if I don't like the silver one I'm going to get a black one).

    Having been to a couple of game shops today I've been told that I can't look at one "in the flesh" since they're all sealed in thier boxes.
    One "helpful" (or "un-helpful" from my point of view) staff member said I could have a look at the image on the box........

    So anyone got one/seen one ? Is it a nice muted silver like on the GBA SP silver/tribal editions , or is it all "sparkly" and stuff ?

    Strange question I know, but thanks for any replies

    Not easily done, since it's only been out for 5 days and the chances of coming across a 2nd-hand one right now are very slim....

    I decided to get a DS a couple of weeks ago and had been hanging on for the silver version to be released.
    Wasn't prepared for the fact I wouldn't be able to look at one in a high-street shop though, hence my original question....

    Buy one, if you dont like it, return it?

    That seems to be the obvious answer at this stage, yes.

    Just seems a bit ridiculous, since I'll buy one, open it up in the shop, and if I don't like the way it looks I'll ask for an immediate refund / exchange (whilst no doubt getting odd looks from the shop staff).

    Just find it very strange that I can't look at a product before I buy it.

    Just run through the online ordering process for collection at our local argos, and they have it available now (pretty good seeing as they were done over on Saturday and have very little of anything left!!) ]http//ww…+ds

    The point I'm making is that I'd like to see it "in the flesh" before I buy one, and that doesn't seem to be easy....

    that what i mean. i have 'reserved' one. I could go down tomorrow and ask to have a look before i 'buy' with no obligation - would that not be what you meant?

    I agree with Jelli..... i've done that loads of times, most recently with a darks & lights laundry basket.

    Eh? I can't see any cool guy in shades. :?

    He's in the reflection on the DS screen ;-)
