Do you think you'll be able to just buy a lite on launch day?

    Do you think considering its not a new unit that you'll be able to just buy a DS lite on launch day? I'd rather just pick one up at Target/WalMart on the 11th rather than pre-ordering through a game place. Thoughts?

    I went ahead and preordered mine, since i'll be going through a game place anyway (trading in my original ds and sp)

    It shouldn't be too much trouble to pick up at a walmart though, since its just a re-release of the system but if you don't make it to one of them in time you can bet the ones at a game store are all gone to reserves already

    mostly it depends on how bad/quickly you want it

    Yeah, I won't freak out if I don't get one, I just don't see like Target or Walmart not having any left. I'll probably just be sure to get there when the store opens. They'd have to have at least a couple and as long as I walk right over and grab one....

    WalMart is the "evil empire". I don't care where you're from, you have to have heard of it?

    OK, some of us don't have a regular DS at all though and saving for a Wii isn't as big of a problem.

    Yes, it's an American thing, and yes, it's the evil empire. Microsoft and Walmart are seeking to take over the world... so far Microsoft is being smarter about it.

    To tell you the truth I don't see whats so cool about it. I have a regular one and I love it. As others have said I would much rather save up for the wii.
