    Hi,

    My folks are going to HK soon, was wondering where I can get one and how much it would cost. Also, do they sell the English version there?

    TIA [​IMG]

    They'd better have M3 Simply there. I'm going there next February and I'm trying to get as much shopping done before shops close up for Chinese New Year. I wonder if the DSlite is cheaper there and more available in colour?

    There's this semi-big mall in mon gok called "sun war" or something like that. It's a multi-level mall that sells mostly anime toy stuff. The 2nd level is games and you can find a few places that sell the NDS carts. Tho I never saw any M3 stuff, mostly just Supercards. They've unfortuantely closed down most of the copied Anime, PC, PS2, XBOX shops though.

    Though in terms of it being electronics heaven that's somewhat debatable. I find that if you can buy it in America, its usually cheaper to buy it in America than getting it in Hong Kong. So I would avoid things like digital cameras and such. Hong Kong is good for purchasing things that are not made available outside Japan/Asian markets.

    Another caveat is purchasing fake stuff. Somy and Panasomic are real companies that try to sell their crap off as their respective higher profile name-sakes. Or in my friend's situation, she bought a "DVD Player". Only to realize much much later, that in fact the COMPANY NAME was "DVD Player" and in fact the unit was only able to read VCDs. [​IMG]

    You can find just about every NDS flash cart ever released at the Golden Computer Shopping Centre in Sham Shui Po, Kowloon. Its a really great shopping complex, there isnt much you cant find there when it comes to electronic and computer products. Also keep in mind that there is no sales tax in Hong Kong so the prices are very competitive.
