    June 11 - $129.99

    The 130 dollar price tag really surprised me, I was expecting 150. I'll be trading in my now useless Xbox and current DS in on this. Not UNTIL the launch though, I'll be playing NSMB up until that point.

    Hopefuly thing price will bring the DS wait and see's into full blown DS owners. :up:

    I'll probably get a DS lite. I love my GB micro. Handhelds are the only area where Nintendo doesn't have it's head so far up it's O-ring that it creates a temporal paradox. Sony has that honour in the handheld market.

    I have a nintendo component cable for GC now worth $105 on ebay (bought it for $30 but they're discontinued now). That's what I'm buying this with:up:

    Also, I love how Nintendo is releasing all these little tidbits building anticipation before E3. Looks like they're getting all the little news out the way so they can lay down the business come next week. :cool:

    I noticed EB games already have DSLite posters up and are running a trade in service for 99$ off a DSLite pack (Lite and New Mario Brothers) when you bring in your DS and two games, and there is no Australian launch date or price yet :)

    Yeah, EB suck even more now. They have bumped up the number of games needed for trade in.

    Like this...

    Xbox version of TR Legend at EB is about $90. Trade 2 xbox games and you get it for $49.95

    Xbox360 version of TR Legend is $109. Trade in 4 X360 games and you get it for $60.

    :down

    Gamestop did buy EB games so that's why they suck. I liked it better when it was Software Etc, Babbages, and Supr Software.

    Well, its Aussie dollars. Thats one of the cheaper titles too. all EA X360 titles are $119.00 (a 30 to 40 dollar increase over last/current gen titles)

    Thats the crappy Australian dollar for you :( Take the american price add import tax, Duties tax, inflate price to match in American dollars then add another 10% GST on top.

    We pay about 30% more than you bastard Americans for electronics and computer games :(

    On the plus side we have cheap beer :up:

    You got GST too! that s**t is brutal. Here we pay 15% HST. Which is a blend of 7% GST and 8% PST. You wanna buy something here the federals rape then the provincials rape you again. But on the plus side they only tack on $10-20 on the american price for us Canadians.
