Don't worry, I don't have a DS either. Lucky for me, I'm gonna earn my own money and buy both at the same time.

DS' are quite easy to find if you've got enough time to look, I went in about 4 game stores last week and saw DS' in-stock in all of them.
Now DS-LITE, that's a whole different story.

What stores were they in? And I don't care what kind of DS I get, theyre both basically the same. I've been beginning to doubt WalMart lately, they never seem to have what I want anymore. That's why I got to Best Buy, Circuit City, Meijer, and Target now.

There's quite a lot of gaming stores near where I am but both of the GAME stores I went in had them, one Gamestation store had them in stock and a store called "Gametrading" had them in-stock as well.
I do suppose you could always resort to online-shopping.

NOTE: I live in the UK by the way but they should be easier to find in the US as they were released earlier.

DS lite is kinda better but I have a DS and they're almost everywhere. DS's & DS liteas are usually in target,bestbuy,toys r us,gamestop,eb games,etc.

DS Lite is supposed to have a much better speaker system than the regular DS, well, when playing a GBA game anyway.
Although, the DS Lite is known to have a much more faultier control-pad.

Nintendo is reducing the original DS to crap.

Every time I go to buy a DS accessory, the box says "For DS Lite ONLY". Including Styluses, Screen Protectors, Graphics, you name it.

I was buying a DS Lite just to upgrade, but thanks to Nintendo, I now have a reason to be bitter about it. =D

Ok. In america, we have DS's for, like, $64.99. I got mine for about $115 used about 3 months after it came out, and sold a lot of my GBA games to get the money. Now they're real cheap. In america anyways. They definately shouldn't be $80 as long as they've been out for about 3 years. And Zavelin is correct. Jeez, do they really have to make you buy a new system every 3 years because you can't find accsessories. That's moronic, and cheapskating. Real bad....

If you can't find a DS anywhere and you live in North America, you simply don't know what you are looking for.

Well, here's my plan if ya can't get one:
1. Get the game.
2. Sell it for 2 or 3 times as much as you bought it on eBay.
3. Take the money, buy another, well known game someone wants, or go with buying D/P again.
4. Then repeat Steps 2-3 until you have enough to buy the game and the DS (from eBay if ya can't find one!)XD

There, my program is a sure fire way to get enough money for something you want.

Also, I got my DS from "Superstore". It is a store that is only in Canada, hence its pre-name: "Your All-Canadian".

I just bought my DS lite yesterday at Toys R Us. At first i didn't see any so I asked someone that worked there and they did have them. If you can't find any, just ask someone. Maybe they'll have em too in a different spot.

I thought DSes like other modern gaming consoles can be found at any major games store? Yeah just ask around. I have a DS Lite, bought it for DP, but have yet to preorder. Lol. I shall just buy it.

I exchaged my DS normal for DS lite with chipping in but that's not the point :tongue:, i must say, it is way more brighter, colourful and lighter (duh) and the top of it doesn't scratch but your fingerprints stay XD!

You brought back a dead thread. It was clearly atleast one week old.

I don't have a DS either (just to stay on topic).

If i remember clearly enough, it only matters when you revived a dead thread over 1 month old...
