    Default i HAVE A DS! muwahahhahahah

    stopped by gamestop and actually got one without reserving, at first they didnt wanna sell me one, but then i asked the manager if i bought a game if he would sell me one and he agreed. he said they had 4 spare copies after all reserves


    that store only got 18 DSs... damn thats almost nothing.

    i actually spent like an hour playing mario w/ the manager lol
    and yes, its a wonderful system and controls/feel are great.

    Just like when the PS2 was released.I was the first person in my area to have actually pre-order a DS, so picking it up was quick and easy.

    Why did they refuse to sell you one if it was a spare? Isn't that the intent of spare store copies, to be sold to anyone who wants one?

    I got mine earlier today! I love it!

    I got Mario 64 with it as well, and though the control is just a tiny bit strange, it's still pretty good.

    I really want to play multi player something with someone. How do you set the DS into the mode where it will "Sense" other DS units and spring to life when it does...?

    I have not read the manual yet...

    Just got mine today...and it is awsome!

    The only thing that is bad about it is Nintendo hasnt launched the whole WiFi thing yet. But maybe soon
    Well...thats what the Nintendo DS boards are saying anyway.

    I had a preorder at EB because they said "Preorder it or else you won't get one before Christmas." I just happened to be out in Commack today looking for a CD and went to the gamestop, asked and they had a few for non-preorders. Bought it, went to EB, put the preorder money towards a game.

    The system's cool, except my worst fear about GBA compatability came true. They mapped the B to the B and A to the A, so its practivcally useless for platformers (should've mapped B to Y.)

    As for the actual DS games, I;ve only played a few minutes of Mario 64 DS, but it definately looks cool.

    Oh yeah? Mayhem bought eight today for his buddies back home.

    Beat THAT!

    Just go to Best Buy or Toys R Us, no preorders and they had a ton of them with no limits.

    Well, someone would have to be within 100 feet of you with a DS for you guys to connect. I think unless you set that up before hand your DS isn't gonna "sense" anything. Or am I missing something from the wireless capabilities here?

    Damn, I can't wait till christmas!! I'll be getting Mario, feel the magic, Mr. Driller, and rayman.

    Oh, and does anyone know if Mr. Driller is really only going to have an initial print run of a mere 2500 copies? I'm going to preorder it just in case, but still, that's insanely low.

    I'm in NYC. There's got to be a DS within 100 feet.

    Perhaps I'm being far too hopeful. I really was under the impression that you could put the DS into a sleep mode of sorts and if it sensed another DS it would wake up and ask you if you want to intiate a connection...

    when my copy of mr. driller was preordered...they manager said good thing, because there is going to be a very limited amount in the US and the might have not gotten any if i didnt preorder my copy
