    What store did you purchase your Lite from and what deal, if any did you get? When did you get it? Were you one of the first people or you just got it? I'm obsessed with the thing so.....i'm curious. Thanks

    Purchased mines in a small shop just off 125th in Harlem...no deals just the system. Two days later I purchased another for my father at Best Buy with Brain age...he loves it.

    I got mine the day it was released at Coconuts. The staff didn't know it was available until I mentioned it to them.:D

    I got mine from VirginMegastores online - £93.99 - Tho if you have a virgin credit card, it's possible to get 10% any purchases - check the credit card site for info.

    I paid £107 for my DS + Tertis DS :D

    I got mine at Best Buy on Saturday. They had just got a new shipment so there were quite a few left.

    Haha....I wasn't thinking you would answer the thread question after mocking the topic. Sorry, I know what target is. I thought it was an inside joke or something.

    i got mine at game crazy

    i traded my ps2 with all my games :p
    i rarely played it so i decided to let it go

    i got around 120 credit and i got this deal at game crazy where its like this memebership for 20$ i get 10% more credit on used games so i wound up getting around 140 for everything, plus i got subscribed to NINTENDO POWER and i get 10% off any games and i get like 10 cd cleaning thingies...so it was a good deal.

    I preordered mine at EB games and got it the Monday after it came out. I was so pumped to get it that sunday, but I was with my girlfriend and she didn't want to go to the mall.

    I do kick myself for not waiting and getting it at Best Buy with the Brain Age offer!

    I bought mine at Toys R Us on street date. Got $5 off any game with system purchase. However TRU is offerening a package deal on the purchase of a DS Lite so I am going tomorrow to try and get it price adjusted.

    I bought mine last night at Wal-Mart. I bought a psp yesterday from Eb games and was having a blast. All I could think was that the ds lite was probably even better. So around midnight I jumped in my car and went to wal mart. An hour later I'm back at home playing Animal Crossing. ADDICTIVE. Different game then I am used to but I couldn't put it down. Now I'm going to try and fight my way through work without playing it. The bad news is that I brought it with me. This could be a long day.


    After weeks of trying to decide which system.....psp or ds lite.....I end up buying both. Go figure.

    :D

    Got it from Game, £109 with a game from a little selection. Brain Age was there too, but Tetris won me over. Not a bad deal! but get this!

    HMV charge £125 for a DS Lite and starter pack. The pack alone is £20! Where on earth that £5 goes to is a damn mystery!
