The One and Only Mario Kart DS Discussion Thread

Definitely looking forward to playing this game, especially with others here via wifi. According to nintendo, the game is released today, but I haven't had any luck finding it at local retailers. Has anybody picked this title up yet?

Sunday's Best Buy ad mentioned it would be in stores on Wednesday.

I am really looking forward to this title.

I am so freakin poor right now, but I did ebay some things so I should be able to pick this up this week when it should be on sale.

Thanks go lucky, i was hoping for a $25 Fry's launch.

I have my pre-sale at TRU. I'll probably call later today to see if they got it. But most likely most stores will get it in Tuesday or Wednesday.

The DS bundle wont be out until the 29th if Im not mistaken. The shipping date of Mario Kart DS is the 14th so some retailers wont be recieving it until the 15th (tomorrow). Yes, yes that red DS is looking badass.

So, are there any other deals besides the Fry's one? Lately I've been able to pick up the last three (nintendogs, Advance wars, castlevania) at spectacular deals but nothing for MK. I was hoping for at least a $30 price.

Couldn't find it locally, so I ordered it online. Fry's/Outpost had it for $23.99, although the shipping was pretty steep at $6.50. I noticed they had Animal Crossing DS available for preorder at $23.99 as well, so I went ahead and added that as well. Shipping ended up being $7.23 for both. Averaging $27.61 for games at $35 MSRP is fine by me

Getting it at Best Buy for $34 with a $5 off coupon.

There's a $5 off coupon in the December Nintendo Power magazine FYI, I know a lot of you got those free subs .

I wandered into Wal-Mart tonight for some other stuff and was surprised to see MK on shelves. That's the first time our Wal-Mart beat any other stores in town. I've played one cup so far and enjoy it. Can't wait to go against other people. My Wal-Mart also had it for an odd price, $32.84 or something similar.

It's listed for $33.82 at walmart.com. I had the same experience with Nintendogs on its release date. Gamestop said it wasn't "released" until tomorrow, so I went across the street to walmart and got it.

Sweet! If you have gone Wi-Fi yet, is it easy to set up?

*sigh* Looks like I'm going to have to buy that USB connecter. A buddy of mine set up a wireless network card on my computer sometime ago so I could "borrow" a high speed signal. He called me today to warn me not to use my DS to connect to the wifi network, doing so could get my signal blocked ending my use of the high speed. Is there any way around this? I really dont have the extra 35 dollars right now. Sorry to sound cheap but Im on a budget.

Why don't you just play at a coffe shop, a library, mcdonalds, or a hundred other places. Give you a reason to get out of the house. You can also get wifi in hell if you sell your soul which sounds like it might be the best option.

Fry's was supposed to have them yesterday at 4pm. I went in a 6pm and they still did not have them out. I did get a good look at the computer, and it is definitely listed at $24.99. I plan on taking a long lunch today and getting it.
