Comes out to about $158 with tax. According to the lady at the DS booth, there are only 2000 of these bad boys being made and they are going fast. Yikes, I know where I'm going tommorrow night...

I want one, but I already have a DS Lite...

It's amazing what you can do with crappy stickers.

Edit: It looks like crappy stickers.

Get one! If for nothing else, eBay...

There are none up right now.

The only thing is the source for the "only 2000 made" is some lady selling them at the ballpark. Hardly reputable. :lol

This is a very Japanese thing to do.. of course Nintendo is a Japanese company and all that. But in Japan if a company owns or is a major sponsor they will make products just for that team.. no other teams just that team.. I think it is cool!

Simulating home here will definitely make Ichiro want to stay with the Mariners long term.

Fun Facts: Yamaguchi wanted Ichiro, Yamaguchi has never seen an M's game live, Yamaguchi wanted Daisuke but heard about how much the Redsox were rumored to pay and said "get the **** out of here"*, Yamaguchi didn't want anything to do with Igawa....

Because they run the Mariners in the same ****ing way they run Nintendo.

Fun, family oriented and profitable. They don't care about being number one in the standings as long as they're number one in money made.

Almost every DS Lite special edition so far has been on the white DS. Only two were on black, to my knowledge (a Pokémon one with gold and silver paint, and an awful Winning 11 one that someone just practically scribbled on), and there's been no special edition colors at all, have there? It must be difficult for them to get the paint process down or something.
