Japan’s postal service is offering its customers a chance to win an exclusive red DS Lite. The odds of owning the coloured console – we know how much you love slightly different plastic on games machines – were 250,000/1. According to this, some bizarre Japanese people that simply don’t care that the DS they won is a different colour to the DS they can buy in any shop, have started auctioning them on Yahoo!. Expect someone to play a huge amount of money for one in the west soon.
