Okay, this is old news, but I just found out and thought some people might like to know.|
Firstly. A big shipment of DS lite black was stolen in Hong Kong, where it is ment to be exclusive. After that, Lik-Sang (a well known games importer. I have never used them myself) has been shut down by Sony. This might effect DS stuff because I often see shops with US DS games in. I saw Starfox a few weeks ago and it's not due out here till the end of next month. I quick word of warning to anyone thinking of importing. Single cart multi-player will work, but multi cart play won't as they won't talk to each other. (Thats why I didn't get Starfox)
It also seems that Mario Kart DS have a different boot on a DS lite, saying 'Here we go' instead of the usual 'Yahoo!'. I hope they don't start putting in Lite only content in games. (Nintendo did it before with Zelda on the GBC that had an exclusive area if played on a GBA)
On a more up-to-date note. I saw Mech Assault DS in the shop yesterday, but havn't found any reviews of it. Anyone know if it's any good?
I also got F-Zero GP Legends for 8 quid. Bargain. Try shopping around for GBA games while they are selling them off cheap to make room for PSP and DS stuff.
