Reports are coming in
that initial sales of the DS Lite in Japan have been extremely high, selling out in many stores even before doors
opened. Attempting to secure a DS Lite at Japanese retail outlets, IGN writes: "With the Japanese DS Lite launch
on Thursday morning, 3/2, Nintendo has embraced launch carnage like the good old days of Super Famicom and N64. Forget
about selling out minutes after opening -- the DS Lite was sold out hours before opening time at every retailer IGN was
able to visit."
Though initial sales figures have yet to be released, Nintendo announced plans to ship
over 450,000 DS Lite units and 200,000 original DS units during the month of March. Do you expect the same for a US
launch of Nintendo's DS Lite?
