Man the Best Buy and Walmart near me have tons of them... and its six titles. Congrats tho, my friend likes it.
I suppose now they are easy to find, but when I got mine they were flying off the shelves like nothing else. I began trying to purchase one around december 10th, calling stores every day to see if they had one in stock. I wasn't able to find one until the beginning of January, and a lot of stores were still sold out.

Not to mention you can usually get it on sale the week it's released at any major retailer

I bought Mario64 last night, played it today, I have to say, it's so surreal playing Mario64 in my hands. It's crazy when I think this game came out in 96...9 frickin years ago...=0 Addictive though, I've been playing @ home after school, not just on the bus and train....which is suprising, cause I usually dont dig handhelds....I think the graphics are at a point now where it can be entertaining to play 3d games in your hand. I'd love to see them port doom to this handheld. =)

Ok, so I ignored my pc today and didn't load up a game of HL2 DM for the first time since it was released....I've been bashing nintendo's strategies in the market, and I still don't agree with alot of what they're doing, but I'll give credit whee it's due, they made one helluva hand-held here...this thing has so much potential...as does the psp...I can't wait for square to put FF3 on the ds....: drool :

I want this game (Jam with the Band):
Jingle Bells: http://www.1101.com/nintendo/band_bros/jinguru_01.html
Hum Recording: http://www.1101.com/nintendo/band_bros/oshougatu.html
Mario Medley: http://www.1101.com/nintendo/band_bros/suits.html
Fullmetal Alchemist: http://www.1101.com/nintendo/band_bros/DS-demo.html

$56 to import with shipping from Play-Asia (Lik-Sang has free shipping, but I hear they take a long time to ship). Wario Ware Touched! DS also looks good...

I sent my DS to Nintendo for replacement today for dead pixels, so I guess I should be getting a new one in a week or so.
