Number time.

Really quickly there is a poll up at Joystiq that asks who are you most excited for at E3. As of earlier today this is the result.

Also here are the latest hardware numbers in Japan...

DS Lite: 140,969 (827,737)

DS : 37,204 (767,773)

PS2: 27,549 (504,215)

PSP: 26,340 (609,399)

GBASP: 6,372 (100,814)

GBM: 3676 (62,678)

360: 1,926 (37,287)

GCN: 1,080 (43,649)

GBA: 46 (2,397)

XBX: 30 (1,355)

You can see that Nintendo is still pwning the competition in Japan, by alot. Out.

You can import a DS Lite right now for about $200 including shipping. They are not yet available in the states. No launch date has been announced. I would strongly guess a launch in June or very near it. I also have seen evidence to support a DS Lite in black which is definately my poison if you know what I mean. Oh, when they launch here I expect them to be around $150, well worth it now that the DS library of games has expanded quite a bit to many many best sellers not to mention the hundreds of incredible GBA titles that also work in the machine.

WiFi is honestly, very cool. I love just being able to turn it on, roam anywhere in my home and play a game at the same time, all without wires. Friend codes on the other hand are something that I don't agree with personally. I think it should be easier to find friends and add friends. You can see though, with Metroid Prime Hunters, the evolution of the system. Nintendo had a vision of taking the relationships you have and trust and being able to connect to these people easier. This is a much different approach than say Xbox Live which is, lets put people together and let them become friends. Because of this different approach they are forced to cope with completely different problems but I think in a year or so it will be a truly outstanding system that will differ from what is traditionally out there. I would also like to say that I hope the online component to the Revolution will be alot more detailed and have many more options to choose from in terms of creating and joining games, but I think Nintendo is dedicated to making this work and that is probably one of the reasons they are working most of the bugs out on the DS and putting the Revolution on the same system later.
