Ironic? DS Phat browser only available online

Downtrodden DS Phat owners: here comes more ammo for insults from the elitist Lite crowd. It seems that Nintendo doesn't think there are enough of you out there who refused to "upgrade" to redundant systems, and has chosen not to release the Phat-compatible version of the Opera browser (which...

Japanese hardware sales, Oct. 2-8: The PSP beats the DS ... sort of

Nintendo: no love for Phat crack

Reader Kirk Winters has a problem. His DS Phat has succumbed to crack.

Japanese hardware sales, 14 August - 20 August: supreme bias edition

Much like a used car purchased from a licentious and overbearing salesman, people often come with their own set of inherent, sometimes unpredictable quirks and predilections.

Japan hardware sales chart, Aug. 7-13: More of the same
