Target actually has it for $99.99: http://www.target.com/p/Nintendo-DS-Lite-Crimson-Black-Nintendo-DS/-/A-10871520

The one with the starter kit is out of stock online but it might still be available at your local Target store for $119.

@discountlingeriedeals I checked the Target web-site last night and could not find one available in store anywhere near where I have family or friends who would be able to go and pick one up for me...good thought though

Walmart had them about the $100 price point too - your local store may still have one.

Hmm--looks like these are getting harder to find new, at least not without paying more than they're worth at this point. :( But I wonder if you might see some good deals come Black Friday/Cyber Monday?

One possibility is eBay. Some available for a "Buy it Now" price of around $100.

Be careful though... make certain it's listed as "New" and is the NTSC (North American) version. Also lots of Chinese knock-offs for sale. These actually do play DS games and by all accounts work pretty well, but not the same as the real thing.

@novastarj: No DS is actually "NTSC"...I'd find it odd if they're marketed that way. And the DS Lite is also not region-locked. I don't think there's any difference between the consoles between different regions, actually.

I know the 3DS is region-locked, and I suspect that the DSi was as well (although, they'll both work with out-of-region DS games).

@natedogg828: Have you looked to see if any are available at a local Gamestop? The prices there are $99 for a new one too. (Apparently, I could travel about 70 miles if I really, really want one at that price! Yay!)

As many have said, I'm thinking Target or Walmart would be your best bet :)

A bit off-topic, but here are some games to check out:

-Custom Robo Arena DS
- Dragon Quest Heroes Rocket Slime
- Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 1 and 2
- Izuna 1 and 2
- Scribblenauts and Super Scribblenauts
- Monster Tale
- All the dragon quest games
- all the pokemon games
- Puzzle Quest Challenge of the warlords(although the IOS version is better)
- Lock's Quest
-Chrono Trigger DS

Custom Robo Arena is probably my favorite though.

@natedogg828: Sorry for no reply - I have been getting things ready for a wedding and unfortunately my woot participation is lacking. I think they will have a good deal on them at a couple of places in the next couple of weeks. Were you ever able to find one?

@00000100 just saw it, already sold out by the time I saw it...anyways it was a pastel pink color and it was for my son, still looking and appreciating all the help I am getting in my search

thanks for all the help, we ended up buying a package deal for a 3DS version with Cars 2 game and carring case...maybe I can borrow it to play the new 3d Mario game
