This weekend's rumor of a Gloss Silver Lite releasing the U.S. this fall has put the tingle into our spider-sense. If we're getting another new color -- and we just got one, as well as Europe getting several -- does that clinch it? Will there be no redesign announcement this week at E3?

Of course, Nintendo may well announce a new DS model, and simply hold the release until next year, but it still seems like the thing that would put a damper on sales of a new color. Or does the (rumored) release of a new shade mean nothing at all?
