The DS Life: Center of attention

Eric Caoili

Despite the aged look of this week's image, this photograph was actually taken quite recently, as evidenced by the DS Lite. The scene is a familiar one, especially at family get-togethers, when gangs of younger cousins, nephews, and nieces roam the house, desperate in their search for any entertainment. Join us past the post break for the full photo.

Three things we love about this shot:

  1. The fact that these children have some sort of "video game radar" -- or game-dar, if you will -- that allows them to detect the presence of a video game console and immediately flock around it.
  2. The kid half-hanging off of the sofa's back (mono-kid!), just so he can get a good view of the DS's screens.
  3. The Bart Simpson shirt.
One thing that we don't love:
  1. The clown hidden behind the couch, waiting for an opportunity to terrorize the children.
Do you have any plans to wow your little cousins or other younger relatives with your latest gadgets and games? What do you plan to show off? That new DSi? An imported copy of Rhythm Tengoku Gold?! Sexy Blackjack Trainer?!! Drop a comment and let us know.
