“Today was a great day for Nintendo. People were rushing around in a state of fever, trying to get hold of those few DS Lites available. I don’t think Iwata is a prophet, but he was right - the spirit of the Famicom era is returning. For the first time in over a decade, Nintendo again has Japan under its control.”

The DS lite Japanese launch has come and gone, and with it went the countries stock. Reports are running rampant saying that practically all the shipped DS lite units have already been sold. The Japanese public is eating up the DS lite, but why shouldn’t they? A superior design, and an amazing library of software. I personally cannot WAIT to get my preorder.
