Nintendo releases special DS
Wants holiday sales
Nintendo has released two new special editions of its DS handheld gaming console with an eye to holiday sales.
One version will be colored gold and come with the game, "The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass," while a metallic pink model will come with the puppy training title, "Nintendogs", Nintendo said. The bundles will go on sale in the U.S. on November 23rd, the "Black Friday" after the Thanksgiving holiday -- one of the biggest shopping days of the year.
Nintendo fans buy different coloured DS machines as collectibles. The machines were originally sold in white, but they are now available in black, pink and a crimson-black combination. A DS and one game normally retails for about US$160, but Nintendo said it will let retailers set their own prices for the new bundles or offer them with more accessories.
