Digit Battle is reporting that only 35,000 DS Lite units were sold in the UK since its launch last Friday. Strangely enough sales numbers for the original DS did not decline. Being a proud owner of the DS Lite I have to say it is definitely worth the extra £10. Could this be a supply problem? Could the fact that an entire shipping container of Black DS Lites were stolen, as previously reported, have some impact on the numbers? The eBay meter, usually a good indicator of unmet demand, is not suggesting a supply problem. What gives? Is £10 really too much?
People are either afriad of something, OR, why I didnt get it is that people aren't willing to rebuy the DS for just new functionality. Its good for people who have yet to rebuy it, but stupid for people who already have one I believe. Though it doesnt make sense that the DS sales arent slipping, that mjeans that pople who dont have a DS already are still buying the regular. Weird.
