GameStop and EB Games Taking Pre-Orders for DS Lite

With the announcement of a release date and price point for the DS Lite comes the chance to pre-order the system. EB Games and GameStop are both accepting pre-orders online and in store. If you’d like to place an order. Head on over to their respective websites. This is only for US residents. Those of us outside the United States will need to go in-store or find another retailer who will hopefully open up pre-orders soon.

Whether or not you need to pre-order remains to be seen. I think it’s safe to assume we won’t be seeing crazy long lineups like Japan did, but with the way things are going over there, you can’t be sure of how many units Nintendo is willing to ship to North America. If you’re absolutely sure you want one, might as well pre-order. If not, well, it’s a risky business but you’ll get it in the end. This isn’t a “real” hardware launch after all.
