Retailer gives away free Nintendo DS games


As you’re probably aware, the Nintendo DS Lite hits the shelves of UK retail outlets from tomorrow, Friday 23rd June. And if the obvious stock shortages aren’t going to get you queuing through the night for one, Games Digest reports a novel selling technique by one retailer – give away free games.

Yes, UK games retailer GAME will be giving away a free DS game to the first 75 customers to buy a DS Lite on Friday morning at its London Oxford Street store. Note that this is likely to mean staying up late and starting to queue very soon, not sauntering in sometime around 11am on Friday. You have been warned.

If you want to know more about this, the DS  Lite or anything else in the world of gaming, get yourself over to Games Digest.
