    Your spelling of 'sought' was a bit off, but I fixed it [​IMG]

    Looks like Aus/NZ are still getting the DS Lite first in the Western World. [​IMG]

    Too expensive in comparison to the US price (130$ -> 110€!!!). I was hoping for 130€ [​IMG]
    Remeber when the phat DS came out, it was 150$ in the US and 150€ in Europe. Why not the same formula for the DSl [​IMG]

    130$ ~ 100,97€
    which makes it even more expensive, like 33% more expensive, which is just too much...
    I won't buy it for that price, I'll either import it, or wait until it gets cheaper

    In sweden its even more expensive. Right now its 1511 SEK = 161 € = 206$ (58% more than 130 $) and thats + shipping [​IMG]
    Thinking of importing a Lite or just buying the original DS when they're lowering the prices when Lite gets out...
