    One of my friends found a bunch just sitting on the shelf of their local target (Slidell, Louisiana) yesterday. get out there and check your targets, people!

    If it matters, some Targets if you call will not give you the truth. When 360 Launched, if they had any in stock, and you called, they would tell you know. They made you actaully go rather than call ahead. Could be the same with the DS Lite considering they are out way to dam early.

    More than likely, the target team members won't have a clue since it is out early, that means someone wasn't paying attention when they stocked these. So if you call, they'll probably tell you it's there if it is because the DS lite isn't in demand like the 360 was back when it came out.

    I've got to say I'm tempted. If I didn't want that DVD player for my laptop, and if I wasn't going to NYC next week, I may be running out right now for it.

    If they are on shelves in some places, they won't be for long. Nintendo has a street date of 6/11 on these, and places cought breaking date are hit with big fines, and future shipments are cut or halted. So I'd imagine that someone's head rolled for that mistake.

    That goes with almost everything.

    I went to a Future Shop here in Canada and picked up some DVD's, when the cashier noticed that there release date wasn't until the following week she told me she couldn't sell it to me then quickly called the back, within 5 minutes all the copies where pulled from the shelves.

    now that i think about it, maybe this is intentional. i saw a commercial for new super mario bros while watching comedy network last night and the ds lite part at the end was changed so instead of saying available june 11 it said "$149.95 MSRP now available at select retailers" and i thought they were just being mean and taunting me by saying it was released early. maybe this is a last minute change.

    I had last night off... but thankfully the monkey running my departments (Electronics & Sporting Goods) can read the packages' release dates.

    Damn. What's the point of reserving these things if they can't hold to a release date. Guess I'll have to hit EB tommorrow and hope they haven't sold mine already.

    I have always hated street dates, I say if somebody wants something, and the store has it they should be able to sell it

    Yeah but it makes for an unfair playfield when the larger places get product in their warehouses before the smaller places.

    I purchased the last one from Target this morning. The receipt says Nintendo DS and it was $129. I checked yesterday after reports they had been sold, but the shelf was empty. So they were stocked sometime between 3 PM EST yesterday and 8:00 AM this morning. Happy hunting!

    guy in electronics at my Target knew they weren't supposed to be out until June 11th but they were out sometime earlier but have since been put away... if I had gone yesterday (if comics weren't delayed a day this week) I probably could've grabbed one

    none of the 4 Wal-Marts I've hit seem to have them (hell, most of them have too many DSs to even fit the Lites in the case anyway)
