DS lights up early

Word on the ever-reliable internet says that Nintendo's new DS Lite is already available in some retail outlets. The smaller, sharper and all around better DS is supposed to launch on June 11, but reports are coming in that some Target and Wal-Mart stores have decided they just can't wait.

If this rings true and you want one today, better get hopping - we don't expect it to last long, and if you call a store, they may still say they don't have them yet. The preemptive sale could easily be cut short if Nintendo decides to step in.
