    You also get an accessories pack in the Toys R Us deal. It's not great, but it's probably worth having. Spare syluses, screen protectors (which I haven't tried yet) and a cleaning cloth (which is particularly useful, actually), as well as a hard protective carry case, car charger, etc.

    ^^^Perhaps it was the compensation they pre-emptively gave me for giving me DS Lite with a dead pixel, that I had to return immediately. :)

    £109, seems about the average. Bought one yesterday from Gamestation. Swapped my PSP for a DS lite and Mario Bros.
    Gamestation did it fir £109 + ANY game. Game did it for the same price but only with a choice of 6 games. Non of which i wanted. They refused to do it with Mario and lost the sale. Silly man!

    Game did the same with me they wouldnt include New Mario despite me telling him that Virgin next door would so I went nextdoor to Virgin and they got the sale.

    The also gave me Brain Training for £10 after a bit of bartering.

    Crazy!

    Amazon seem to do some pretty good ones too... but seem to be similar to above so unless you collect Nectar points etc probably not much benefit.

    Got mine from Gamestation with Mario Bros for £109 on saturday after game wouldn't want to sell it to me with Mario (their loss). Also got a better deal for the 360 games I part exchanged.

    Great customer service too, as I brought it back on sunday morning due to 2 stuck pixels. They exchanged it without any problems.

    I'm getting my son one of the new Red DS Lite's for his birthday next week and I've been lookin for the best offers on bundles. So far the best i've found is the DS, Lego Indiana Jones and Sega Superstars Tennis for £119.99 at Game. Has anyone else come across any better offers at all perhaps with more games?

    Cheers :)

    Oh and if you know of the cheapest place to pick up New Super Mario Brothers.

    Ta.

    i am in the USA at the moment.

    I want to get a couple of DS Lites.

    Anyone suggest a good place. Everywhere I have seen is showing 129 dollars plus tax so thats about 135 dollars or 70 quid.

    Thanks

    Anyone know of any package deals now xmas buying season is upon us? I'm buying one each for my 5/6 year old boys. They love Mario Kart on the Wii, so I'll probably get them that (I presume they need one each for multiplayer).

    I'll want brand new UK ones rather than used/import.

    Gamestation possibly best I can find - DS + ANY 2 games for £130. Anything better out there? Mario Kart out of stock on their site right now though.

    Any suggestions on other games for 5/6 YO boys? Both fairly confident on PS2/Wii - They like Lego games, Mario Party, Wii Sports/Play, M+S at Olympics, plus the Junior buzz games on PS2.

    Any suggestions much appreciated.

    HI
    I've also been looking to get a good deal on ds lites for xmas pressies for the little 'uns. I've decided to buy the ds from Amazon (available in lime or turquoise) for £89 inc free del.

    <mod edit - Piracy tutorial removed>I doubt very much you personally own the 50 or so games you are trying to explain how to go about downloading. Please DO NOT discuss this on this forum as it is PIRACY. Thank you</mod edit>

    Hope this helps any Santas out....
