GameStop will no longer stock DS Lite to concentrate on "unique" 3DS

GameStop has confirmed it will no longer stock Nintendo DS Lite.

The news was confirmed to Joystiq by a company spokesperson after internal documents from the firm surfaced showing the product being discontinued at the retailer.

The spokesperson said the reason for the decision was in order to "take advantage," of the "unique product," that is 3DS. It will continue to stock DSi and the DSi XL.

Nintendo's Charlie Scibetta, senior director of corporate communications at NOA commented: "Nintendo DS Lite is still available at most retail locations. Consumers will be able to find Nintendo DS Lite without much trouble."

DS Lite was released in 2006, less than two full years after the original DS started hitting stores in late 2004.
