A Diamond DS Lite Is A Girl's Best Friend .... Not!
Give me strength.
I hate pink consoles, I really do and wrote an article for MCV a few weeks ago berating the fact the games industry seems obsessed with producing these monstrosities in order to attract the female demographic.
Sony and Nintendo: we love you but, please, just stop it.
Well now things have gone bonkers. A press release just landed in my inbox from the nice folks at Cake, Nintendo's wonderful PR company, about a new limited edition DS Lite covered in 'over 1,200 of Swarovski’s finest crystals in varying shades of pink' costing a whopping £360! The consoles were designed by Paris Hilton (figures!) and are only available from the Multipazz boutique in central London.
No comment. Well, okay, maybe just one: The Nintendogs DS Lite below is the ugliest thing I've ever seen. Closely followed by the DS Lite to it's right!
