DS kidnapping

Monday 19 June 2006
A significant shipment of black DS Lite handhelds, along with a number of games, has gone missing in Hong Kong.

An entire cargo container holding the goods - reported to be worth 18 million Hong Kong dollars (£1.25 million) - has vanished. The sting in this particular tale is that the shipment was due for Europe, where DS Lite is launching on 23 June for £100.

Hong Kong police are currently offering one million Hong Kong dollars (£69,700) as a reward for information regarding the lost handhelds. Our best advice for the moment is to be wary of anyone selling three for a tenner out of a tattered carrier bag round the back of a multistorey car park.
