    I lol'd when I saw this. This is part of an add from GAME newsletter advertising the new DSi:

    TWO TOUCHSCREENS, GUYS!

    Source

    Discuss how the European DSi gets two touchscreens and the others don't.

    Edit: Haha, that was fast. They apparently realized the huge mistake they made and quickly pulled the ad off. Too bad I didn't screenie :<
    Edit2: Found the ad somewhere else, enjoy.

    GAME is probably the most retarded store out there, with the most retarded staff.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they started telling people this in-store on it's release day.

    And then saying you can't buy it because a drivers license doesn't count as Photo ID.

    So that means the copy I got from Blockbuster of Little BIG Planet is a fake? I dare say, how rude of you! Why would you question such a fine establishment and possible tarnish their name. I say good day sir.

    I SAID GOOD DAY SIR!

    Woah woah woah, what's with all the hate on GAME. In my city you either go to GAME or you go to gamestation. Now if you lived here you wouldn't be bad-mouthing GAME. On the other hand gamestation is where you would find your typical nerd. PLUS (AND I'M NOT JOKING) the place smells like sweaty gym socks and natural B.O. while game is in a shopping centre and they are required to stay tidy.

    You're in preston aren't you??!! XD
    I saw that Black DSL was discontinued from a GameStop newsletter but I don't know because they're the only ones who said so far. better not be discontinued before I get mine once it drops price a bit.
