Finally the day has come, yes today is when the Nintendo Ds Lite officially launches in England.
As I'm working today I shall be right in the forefront of all the action, as there's no doubt that the store will receive a large volume of customers. These potential purchasers will either be content due to the fact they have secured themselves a unit, or extremely disappointed due to them not pre-ordering, and therefore missing out on purchasing the sleek handheld.
The console is set to debut over here in two colours; 'apple' white and 'gloss' black. I personally decided to pre-order a black Ds lite, though my mind is being swayed by the rumours mounting that the black iteration picks up a horrendous amount of fingerprints… Ha, I know I'm ultra petty on these things.
Now as some of you may know due to one of my recent posts, the store that I work at has received thirty Ds Lite units. For a small store coupled with the numerous shortages in Japan is a rather decent amount. In total we received around twenty pre-orders for the machine, with the 'apple' white version just pipping the rather sexy black version in the leader stakes. To be honest it isn't going to be hard to push and sell the left over machines, the hard thing is going to be, to get rid of the ever growing amount of accessories we keep receiving for the machine…
