    I don't know.
    I'm hoping that I can get one online somewhere like at Play-asia or something.
    I really don't want to have to wait until late 2009.

    Hopefully we don't have to wait long for the new DSi. Hopefully DS Lite sales fall off the chart.

    I got a question... since it should be region free... won't it include the other languages aswell ? It shouldn't be a iQue DS should it ? Cause if then I might even thing about importing (or asking if I could get this baby for christmas or b-day xD)
