    I just hope I can actually find one, unlike what's been going on in Japan.




    Although I do love that the DS has gotten popular enough that even an upgraded second release of the product causes so much commotion. I don't rememeber the GameBoy Advance SP being quite the huge deal the DS Lite has been.

    The lack of a headphone socket killed it.

    Maybe.

    Okay, it didn't. But still!

    I'm a bit more excited now although I'm going to hold out for different colors.

    Well, I am disappointed that it's only in white, but it's what I expected. I'll just be happy to get ahold of one (hopefully there won't be any shortages).

    I'm going to most likely reserve one at TRU as soon as doing such becomes available (unless there's a markup at TRU). I'm disappointed that I can't get black, but the white really doesn't bother me so much. The light teal, though, is hideous. I'm glad they're not making that the only one available.

    Thanks for the insult. It was totally appropriate.
    Given the fact that you didn't specify that you were speaking of the SP, nor did you quote the person you were responding to, I don't think it was too far fetched to assume that you were speaking about the DS lite in a DS lite thread. The context of your post could have easily been viewed as "The DS lite doesn't have a headphone jack, that kills it for me, almost."

    I am dummy for trying to help you out...whatever.

    I find, usually, reading the posts in the order that they're posted in helps me understand the discussion at hand.

    But if you need insulting again, please, stop by anytime and I'll be glad to help. I have ones like "dum dum", "doody head", "numbskull" and "bumface".

    Seriously, how can "dummy" be an insult? If I called you crapface, then sure, but "dummy"? Is it 1940 and nobody told me or something?

    I'm very excited about the DS Lite... I will be happy to purchase one as soon as I don't have to buy a white one. Hopefully I won't have to wait too long.

    None of Nintendo's portable consoles have ever been region locked. No doubt they understand that it would violate the concept of a game system you can take anywhere, so I don't think it will change. Ever.
