For those who watch every move in the saga of the Nintendo DS Lite, now the company has officially announced pricing for the black version of the much-sought-after portable gaming machine. Despite rumor and speculation indicating otherwise, the Black DS Lite will cost 16,800 Yen ($145) in Japan, the same price as the white, light blue, enamel blue and pink ones. It will go on sale September 2. No word yet about whether we'll see this shiny and ominous version of the DS Lite in North America or Europe. No matter what, I refuse to use the word "sleek" when referring to anything that's shiny and black.
