Product Description

Includes one Ice Blue Nintendo DS Hardware, Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day! and a Carrying Case. Give your gray matter the workout that it needs! Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day is inspired by research conducted by Professor Ryuta Kawashima, a prominent Japanese neuroscientist. His theories revolve around keeping your brain “young” by performing certain mental activities quickly. Work that brain! The title is a series of minigames designed to give your brain a workout. Activities include performing simply math problems, counting people going in and out of a house, drawing pictures on the Touch Screen, and reading classic literature out loud. When you start a new game, you will take a series of testes and get a score that shows your “DS Brain Age. As you use the software, your in-game Brain Age will drop. Check on family and friends. You can keep up to four save files on one Game Card – sharing a game allows you to compare your results with those of family and friends. (You might even get a look at one of their pictures!) You can also send a demo version of the title to friends or compete with up to 16 players in a battle to see who can solve math problems the fastest! (Both downloadable modes are local wireless only, not on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection).

Modern handheld gaming has long been dominated by Nintendo and Sony. Each hardware manufacturer has multiple viable offerings derived either directly, or evolving from the respective DS and PlayStation Portable product lines. All of these devices are impressive multifunctional devices, with designs meant to encourage gameplay on the go, integration with the Internet, backwards compatibility to previous games, and so on, but each goes about this in different ways. Taking a few minutes to examine the main features, and getting more familiar with available options, accessories and possible limitations of each handheld is the optimal way to determine which is the best choice for a player.

Product information Edition:Ice Blue with Brain Age and Case ASIN B001IAP45W Release date November 28, 2008

DSLite, original, with BrainAge. We already had BrainAge II, but wanted BrainAge. Getting a second unit just seemed like the logical way that we could both play at the same time (individually or head-to-head), swap and share game cards, and co-op play something like the NY Times Crossword. It's still fun and challenging after all these years. I am seriously hooked on Virus Buster (no, it is *not* relaxing).

Wow, 2008 when I bought this for my son. This unit only lasted 2 years, though. It quit working suddenly. Didn’t bother buying a battery for it as my son lost interest with it. Sold all of the game cartridge in ebay after that. Time has changed now and this in not a thing anymore.

I bought a new game console for my child every time a new one came out. He was obsessed with these and blue is his favorite color.

I love this game system from the color which is the best color in my opinion and motivated me to finally purchase it so I wouldn't miss it. To the fun and portability of taking with me anywhere I go, just slip it into my purse in its own stylish and functional case, which holds the system the additional stylus and three more games.. I bought this a while ago and am so pleased with it just had to review it.. It is my favorite color so might be why I like it so much.. I love that it is different from the normal standard colors.

I bought this as a gift for my daughter and I received the ds, a charger, a carrying case, an extra stylus, and a game! Thanks so much for this amazing deal!

This item looked brand new and both games that came with it worked!

So cute and a great product

The game and the ds is in good condition. The only thing I got disappointed is i didn't know that the carrying case is not the carrying case shown on the picture even if it's alrdy used. I thought that it will be the same thing but it's not! I just hope that next time the information about the used stuff will be more specific if it's quite different with the new ones. Hoping there will be available pictures too for the used so at least could still choose whether or not to buy the used from new.
