    I am in the market for a DS Lite. I was looking at ebay and have noticed alot of sales of a ds lite with about 30 games or so for about $100...How are any of these sellers able to do this? It just doesn't seem cost effective...

    Some of these sellers are from china I have noticed. Would the games then be counterfeit? I mean, it has to be, right?

    Got it in one. I'm sure many of the lots are legit (or they think they are legit) but the ones from China are selling the fake carts. They'll work on your DS lite and you probably won't have any issues but they don't work on the DSi models.

    I imagine those will arrive on a R4.

    Im a tad apprehensive to buy cuz if the ds lite doesn't work, I doubt theres much I can do if it's a chinese seller.

    Why get one from China?

    They are only $130 new in the US, and looking at Walmart that includes a game. You could also get stung for customs fees. These '33' games are on a R4 cart and a low capacity MicroSD card. This is why they say they don't come with cases/ instructions. If you buy a DS Lite from eBay, buy a new one from a US seller.
