Xcm Hyper Gear Case Overclocks Your Nintendo Ds Lite

by Paul Strauss

There are plenty of replacement cases out there for the Nintendo DS Lite, but this one has a nifty trick up its sleeve.

The new XCM Hyper Gear case for the DS Lite not only gives your handheld a new look, it turbocharges your games. See that little switch that says “N”, “1.4X” and “1.7X” in the bottom right corner? Just flip it, and your DS Lite will run at 140% or 170% of its normal speed. Presumably, it’s safe to overclock your DS Lite, but it’ll probably end up draining your battery like mad.

Now keep in mind that overclocking a handheld like the DS Lite actually speeds up your games, graphics and audio. To give you an idea of what that might look and sound like, check out this video of another speed-hacked DS Lite:

XCM expects to release the Hyper Gear case in the next few weeks, and you’ll be able to find it at online modding retailers including Extreme Mods and Total Console.

    HA! watched the video, never saw mario move so fast. Seriously, this could be a great Christmas present.

    I’m not sure how this works when hacking a ds. Just curious, how would this mod affect homebrew apps like NitroTracker? will it make everything faster and higher pitched (seen in the mario racing rom video) or will it be more like an overclocked pc?

    Damn thats a pity, I’d love to be able to overclock a DS to get better performance, but just speeding the game up – that’s pretty useless, otherwise I’d be so into this, giving the DS the extra kick to be able to play mp3s while running a game without trouble would have been a very nice addition.

    I think this will screw up the Wi-Fi races and other games over the WiFi connection. Think “speed hacks”.

    Oh well.
