DS Lite price gouging

Two days before the official DS Lite release in Japan and Asian retailers are already pricing a markup. Hong Kong stores are quoting their first shipment of units at $300 a pop. That's almost double the MSRP. From the article: "As is common with launch feeding frenzies of this nature, they are speculative and fueled by limited initial inventory... If there is retail support at US$300 for an NDS Lite, prices will remain at that level."

Supply and demand in action, folks. Would you fork out $300 bones to be a DS Lite first mover?

[Thanks, Tim]
