Grown up DS cases for grown up DS players
The Nintendo DS has become a multi-generational gaming system. With the release of Brain Training, numerous Sudoku and crossword games and even the logic puzzles of Professor Layton, the DS is now being played by a whole host of more “mature” gamers. It can be slipped into a handbag or pocket and whipped out during lunch breaks or long bus journeys. But even the most careful of gamers need to protect their handheld. At the moment, the choices of cases are slim. They may choose to either go with a kiddy stlye case, adorned with characters, or a plain case, that look rather dull.
But this could all change, with PDP releasing two new ranges of DS case, aimed at the more discerning gamer.
Firstly is the Canvas Wallet. Available in three colour schemes, beige, green and blue, this fold over wallet is finished with contrasting PVC details. The interior of the case is lined with a suede style material that feels nice to the touch and will do a good job of keeping the DS clean and shiny. The case is held closed by a loop and button on the rear.
Whilst not particularly sturdy and certainly not shockproof, it is finished to a high standard. The Canvas wallet will do a good job of keeping your DS clean, whilst looking stylish.
Second up is the Luxe case. This one is available in a brown leather like material, with a choice of blue or yellow printed detail. Again, it is lined with a suede style material. The case is held closed by a Velcro strap that wraps around to the back.
The Luxe case allows the gamer to store their DS along with three games, in separate pockets, and a spare stylus. The addition of this extra storage makes the case feel sturdier, but still not strong enough to protect against a drop.
Both cases are made incredibly well and do a great job of protecting the DS from the knocks and hazards of being stored in a bag. But the main draw of these cases are that they look stylish and grown up. No more embarrassing jokes about stealing a kids game. More mature gamers can now flourish their DS with pride.
Both of these cases are made by PDP and will be available soon.
