I’ve had quite a few of you write in to ask me where to find a great deal on a Nintendo DS Lite now that Nintendo has finally debuted the much-touted DSi. And I mailed each of you back to say, “Oh, the prices are going to drop, I just know it! Post coming soon!” And then I never did write that post.
Because the prices still haven’t dropped. Ummm. Hello? Nintendo? $130 is still kind of steep for a toy my kid may well drop in the toilet. I’m just sayin’.
So I went hunting around, and I came across this excellent explanation of why the DS Lite prices aren’t likely to take a universal dip any time soon. Which means that we’re looking at going all the way until next holiday season before we see any great deals, most likely.
And that kind of stinks. I’ll keep an eye out, though, and let you know if anything changes.
