It’s been fun, Onyx. But it’s time to hang up the stylus.
According to an apparent GameStop memo, the Onyx model of Nintendo’s DS Lite has been discontinued.
This rumor comes from a GameStop newsletter obtained by Kotaku in which store managers are advised “DS Lite Onyx hardware systems have been discontinued and stores will no longer be replenished on this product.”
Stores are further advised to remove all Onyx DS Lite displays after they have sold through their current stock.
There has been no official word from Nintendo.
If confirmed, the decision to discontinue the Onyx model would be congruent with Nintendo’s recent strategies for the platform. The company stopped shipping the original Polar White DS Lite model last year to phase in the Metallic Silver model, which released in September.
