Well, Australia gets the DS on february 24th for AUD $200, which is pretty damn good. We'll have SM64DS and the new Wario Ware Touched game on release, along with other stuff.
I won't be buying one until a bit later. Firstly, I don't want the Metroid demo (stupid, I know, but I'm picky about my collections). Secondly, I may wait until E3 to see the future line-up for the DS...
As for E3... I'm worried, and I don't know why... If the DS future line-up dissapoints and the "Revolution" ain't revolutionary... what will we do???
Not yet. I didn't know the TV ad campaign had started. However, I was informed by former colleagues that it would be a good idea to pre-order DS launch software over here, as the system is in very high demand.
They are expecting to sell out of SM64DS and Warioware.
