I just bought a DS Lite from Target! Update!

So I walk into Target today looking to pick up the Riddick Trilogy and what do I see? A shitload of DS MotherfuckingLites in the case. I wonder if they're just empty boxes at first, but if they were real, I didn't want to alert the cashier that she shouldn't be selling them this early. So I ask if I can buy one. Sure, enough, they are selling them early. I'd scan the receipt for further proof, but it just says 'Nintendo DS' - no indication of it being the Lite.

I was going to try to use the CC $15 off coupon, but fuckit, I got it a week and a half early.

UPDATE: More people are reporting seeing DS Lites. It may not be as YMMV as originally thought.

Sell it on Ebay, you'll probably make a killing.

Good job you lucky basterd.. you should've picked up another one and eBayed it. You probably could've gotten a good $160 easily.

If I wasn't currently pretending I love my fat DS more than life itself and certainly more than a skinny DS, I would be jealous. As it is, I yawn.

Ok, I have the thing preordered with $77 toward it at Gamestop. The thing is I've already picked up 2 games in anticipation of it and I can get 10% off at Target with employee discount. So, do I wait a week and half or get it now if I can find it?

But you already have Oblivion to tide you over until the next price drop.;)

Yeah but I need some kind of games to play when I'm watching a movie and I've played everything I want for the PSP.

My EB told me they were getting in the DS Lites this week but that they were street dated for the 11th. I.E. That Target is in deep doo doo :P

I don't understand why Nintendo would streetdate a system that's already out. The Lite is nothing more than an upgrade on a previously available system. Why street date it?

I remember this happening with the original DS at a Wal-Mart store. I'm tempted to go to my Target just to see, even though I'm waiting for a black one.

Target isn't alone on this. Just got back from the Forrest Lake, MN Walmart which had at least 20 DS Lites for $129ish. I'll have pics from my camera phone if they EVER reach my email box....

New sig coming soon.

Interesting. Perhaps the case they are shipped in doesn't have the street date listed on them. I'm only an hour away from Forrest Lake, I don't have any discount at Walmart but I could get it early...
