GameStop stops DS preorders

Major games retailer pre-sold out of Nintendo's new handheld, EB Games continues to take orders; plus, some DS games sneak out early?

Gamers looking to pick up a Nintendo DS later this month might be in for a shock if they saunter into their local GameStop. The specialty retailer has stopped taking preorders for the handheld system, which effectively means that the company has already sold out of its launch-day allotment. The Nintendo DS launches on November 21. GameStop's main competitor EB Games, meanwhile, continues to take preorders for the DS, but cautions that they will follow suit as soon as they reach their launch-day limit. After the preorder campaign is closed, all further system sales will be first-come-first-serve.
