Nintendo’s take on DS Lite as an MP3 player

DSFusion might be the proper term to use when referring to the ever happening merger between music and gaming. More than utilizing it as in-game soundtrack, players sometimes prefer listening to their favorite genre while collecting Pokemon and riding chocobos all to their hearts’ content.

Nintendo clearly sees this growing trend and as a response, announced today that owners of DS Lite can now officially upgrade the handheld into a full blown, high quality MP3 player. The add-on’s capacity allows for around 150 songs through a 512MB SD memory card. With this, according to Nintendo, players can save themselves the hassle of bringing two separate gadgets.

Please take note that the MP3 files are actually taken from your PC. You have to transfer them first to the SD card which is also bought separately. The Nintendo MP3 player will be initially available to the European market on December 8 with a price tag of 20 Euros (US$ 25). Aside from being compatible with the DS Lite, the accessory can also be used with the Game Boy Advance SP and Game Boy Micro.

On a more personal note though, you can actually “browse” through our homebrew section and find similar applications for free.
