Remember when North America got
everything before Australia? Sure, sometimes Japan would get things before North America did, sometimes Europe would
get things before North America did, but we could always comfort ourselves knowing that we would always get it before
Australia (and, by extension, their neighbors in New Zealand with the adorable accents).
announced that the DS Lite will be released
Australia and New Zealand on June 1st, a full ten days before it hits
American shores. Though
they'll get their systems sooner, they'll also pay a premium for it. The DS Lite will retail in Australia for $199.95
AUD, $20 more than their DS Phat, and about $153 US, $20 more than our light. You've won this battle Oceania, but you
haven't won the war!
