Update bitches: I went to the Walmart about 3 miles away from me, asked the clerk if they have DS Lite for sale, to which he replied, "It's supposed to come out next Tuesday. We have it here though." Makes sense. Inventory guaranteed to be there by letting it sit around the warehouse. So, if you're lucky enough to find some store that has no qualms about breaking street dates, then you could be the owner of a shiny new DS Lite. I decided not to press the matter and will go back Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday to check it out.

DS Lite launches early? Source: A handful of posters on the Cheap Ass Gamer message boards.

The official story: Nintendo reps weren't immediately available for comment.

What we heard: Last night, a moderator on the Cheap Ass Gamer message boards going by the name of "Trakan" posted pictures of a Nintendo DS Lite he had apparently just purchased from his local Target, about a week and a half before the system's official on-sale date of June 11. The pictures show the North American DS Lite packaging, the system itself, a stylus, an AC adaptor, and a receipt. Details on the receipt aren't clearly visible, but Trakan said it only rang up as a Nintendo DS instead of a DS Lite.

That posting was followed by a number of people from around the country reporting that they had picked up DS Lite systems at their local Targets and Wal-Marts. However, plenty of posters reported failure in their attempts to find a system.

GameSpot's own attempts to find Target and Wal-Mart stores selling the system were similarly stymied. After striking out at three local area stores, we expanded the net. A Target near the company's Topeka, Kansas, distribution center wasn't carrying the systems yet, nor was a Wal-Mart nearby the company's Macon, Georgia distribution facility. Finally, we tried the Wisconsin Target where Trakan reported his DS Lite was purchased from. After some dissembling, the nervous-sounding clerk there told us they had the system in stock behind closed doors, but it wasn't going to go on sale until June 11.

Bogus or not bogus?: Bogus that Nintendo has launched the DS Lite early in the US. Not bogus that some stores accidentally broke street date on the system.

I called like 5 Targets and about 6 Wal-Marts and none have the DS Lite. 2 of the Wal-Mart's said that it ain't out until the 11th. I will check around tomorrow again.

I've got one reserved at EB but got no money to pick it up. As long as they dont sell my reserve I'm fine waiting a week to get it.

Those fuckers better have it next week though. :mad:
