When it comes to gaming-related hardware and software, the Japanese always have it better than the rest of the world. Nintendo gamers in Japan have their Club Nintendo, where members can get exclusive items in exchange for points earned by registering their purchased Nintendo games.
And talk about exclusive items--the Club Nintendo items are rarely available in stores, and some of them can only be obtained through a lottery draw, provided you even qualify for the draw.
Club Nintendo members in Japan who register their games between July 1, 2008 and August 31, 2008 can win any of three Limited Edition DS Lites: Premium Silver, Premium Black, and Premium Rose.
These DS Lites have a different, glossier sheen to them than a regular DS Lite, and from the pics, they almost look metallic. The best one for me is the Premium Silver DS Lite, which looks just awesome. Even the Premium Rose looks cool, and I don't even like that color, heh. Expect these exclusive DS Lites to fetch high prices if they ever appear on eBay.
