    I've already seen red boxes for Mario 64 a week back. I thought they were part of the player select titles actually when I first saw it...

    I think it was just being discontinued. So it is indeed not being produced anymore but Lite is still in stores and such.

    of course only in the us, we won't be getting any discounts in europe or anywhere else, that's for sure.

    Look at the Flag...
    I'm sure other parts of the world will also get this price...

    I guess it will be 99€ where I live... more expensive than the US deal... but still cheaper than the actual price (129€ or something like that).

    not that great of a deal considering it was on sale for the same price at walmart for almost six months straight not long ago.

    -_- Sometimes I wonder if I should get a console/hand-held at the end of its life cycle when price is insanely low, however, then there is the urge to get the new beast that has just popped into stores....God technology. Never keeps your wallet full.

    To people who have never owned a Nintendo DS. This is the best deal in the world, and please take advantage of it.

    Completely unrelated, but a mate just got a brand new boxed Lite from eBay for £30. It was clearly pristine. I said to him "I just hope Lites are sold with that same price" then this news pops up.

    Glad to hear this news. I hope it reaches the UK as well. My DSi L button's busted and I'd like a better DS in terms of battery life and I'd like to use my EZFlash again. I was very gutted when I missed out on that £40 Guitar Hero DS bundle. £40!!!
