I hope its sooner than August, well I hope it comes out now. Because I don't own a DS and I want the lite one instead. The price ^ converts to 88.82 GBP, not a bad price considering it will be new and the original will phased out.

Yeah, now they've said that the old one will be phased out, I imagine the DS Lite must be priced around the same as the current DS.

No doubt the few months prior to the new one being launched the price of the original DS will drop dramatically.
