Will the DS go cheaper by Christmas?

Probably not. It's already cheap as it is, though.

You can probably find the old DS cheaper than normal now, since the DS Lite has been released. But I don't even see people selling those as much anymore. o.o If you mean an official price drop, no, I think it would probably have been announced by now if it were going to happen by Christmas.

Nothing has been announced in terms of a holiday promotion. However, the price was already lowered last August from $150 USD to $130 USD.

I just ran a quick search on EBGames. A refurbished DS would run you a mere $80.

The DS is hasn't droped that much since last christmas, but the has been a drop since the DS lite came out, I gout mine at a really good price on the after christmas sales, but then again, I got lucky. But if you are willing to risk getting it after christmas, that would definatly be the best time to buy. (If its for a christmas presant forget what I just said)

The refurb DS might be $80, but who knows where that thing's been. Imagine someone taking that into the bathroom or something and then trading it in to GS...

There's no way Nintendo would drop the price of the DS. The DS Lite is selling like crazy in Japan, slightly less-so over here, but it's still doing really well. Besides, it's a bargain at $129 with all the great games out for it.
