Now here is where it got really funny. When he visited her last week he gave her the gift. To his girlfriend's surprise the gift was in fact an old school blue variant DS. He was perplexed at first that his girlfriend did not play it straight away, deciding instead to stow it away. Our friend did not know that he bought the wrong gift, until he calls her a few days later and asked if she has played it yet. Of course she hasn't - she already has a perfectly healthy grey DS for that! He did not notice any difference between the DS Lite and old school DS, only the colour!
Some good news though. Today we went out together to the shops together and he bought a white DS Lite for her. Even better is he may actually keep the blue DS for himself! Imagine that, four player More Brain Training multiplayer FTW!
Just in case this story hasn't bored you to death yet, here's another videogaming sales tip. HMV has the fairly good Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories for £10 and the excellent Final Fantasy XII for a twenty.
Still here? Well here's our Jenga tower, moments before it toppled, at the pub:
And no, it isn't 'in' to wear England underpants.
