A truck loaded with Black DS Lites has been stolen in Hong Kong. The truck was carrying US$2.32 million worth of DS software and DS Lites. Since this version of the DS Lite will be available only in Europe, the black market value of the handhelds is sure to be very high. Nintendo has not released a statement concerning the effect that this theft will have on availability when the DS Lite is released on June 23 across Europe.
People with information related to this crime are encouraged to contact the Hong Kong police. The police are offering a reward of approximately US$128,831 or HK$1 million for information leading to the recovery of the stolen games and systems.
