    Warning: New DS Hijacking Method

    But not in the way you're thinking




    Various news sources are reporting a peculiar story regarding the new much anticipated black DS Lites scheduled for release in Europe in 9 days time.


    Apparently, a cargo container carrying a shipment of black DS Lites and other DS games has gone missing somewhere in Hong Kong whilst on its route from China to Europe.
    The value of the containers contents was estimated at approx. $18 million HKD ($2.32 million USD, £1.2 million GBP, €1.8 million EUR).

    Hong Kong police are offering a reward of $1 million HKD to anyone with information.

    Let's hope the European DS Lite launch (June 23rd) won't be affected too much!

    I bet people will pay good money for black DS Lites in China, Japan or USA.... wherever.

    Smart move if the people get away with this!

    It really does make you wonder doesn't it?! [​IMG]

    It does take me back to when the yakuza stole loads of SNES units prior to launch in Japan.

    Didn't know they still had train robberies. It's probably pirates or something.

    IMO: They are going to find it. Its hard to hid a cargo container in someone's house [​IMG]

    I'll laugh when I start seeing auctions for black DS lites on Ebay from Hong Kong. [​IMG]

    blue99: they probably have a warehouse.
