Is the DS Lite Discontinued?

Ever since the Nintendo 3DS hit the market on March 27, we’ve been waiting for the ax to fall on the DS Lite. If the above image of an internal GameStop document is accurate, our wait is over.

As you can see, GameStop stores appear to have been informed that unit is discontinued, and once existing stick is depleted, the unit will be gone from the chain’s stores. This really shouldn’t surprise anyone, as there were already two newer DS models (DSi and DSi XL) on the market before the 3DS launch, and Nintendo isn’t well known for keeping aging systems on the market.

Still, we can’t help but be a little teary seeing this. The DS Lite has accompanied many of us through thousands of miles of travel, countless boring meetings, and several traffic jams. We really kinda loved that little guy. *sniff*
