DS Lite Not as Popular in UK

The Nintendo DS Lite has also launched in the United Kingdom, but the response to the system in the UK is not the same as it was when the console launched in the US. Few retailers opened at midnight to give gamers a first chance at the console and in general, the response to the DS Lite has been quite mundane.

The console retails for 100 pounds in the UK which is approximately $179, and many people are purchasing bundles which include the console, accessories, and games for prices ranging from 120 pounds to over 250 pounds.

A meager 40-50 visitors lined up at some retailers to get the console, while there were hundreds of gaming enthusiasts in lines when the console launched in the US

We will have to wait and see what the numbers are like when they are officially released by Nintendo.
