I thought I was going to have to wait another few months before I got my hands on a DS Lite. Every now and then, a few shops would get in a stock of 10 which would be sold out within the first 30 seconds – practically impossible to get.
The interesting thing is that a shop clearly states on a sign “We will be getting only 10 units today” but you’ll see about 30 people lining up – the last 20 hoping that the person in front dies or something.

Now here’s a tip for getting your hands on a DS Lite in Japan. Go to some place where the normal crowd wouldn’t think of looking – a general supermarket like Daiei perhaps. One normally conjures up images of milk n eggs when one thinks of Daiei (its like Tescos or Safeways) but Daiei also carry electronics too which is where we got ours ;-)
