I was wandering about my local Blockbuster Video store looking for something to watch (I ended up with Watchmen actually, a movie that contains far too many blue penises) and came across a very interesting accessory. I saw a statue of Donkey Kong and what looked to be a statue of Mario, but upon closer inspection he was actually something else. I picked up this box and saw that Mario was labeled as a Nintendo DS holder and had a paper DS in his hands. He functionally did nothing else except sit on a table and hold your DS. I thought this was ridiculous, but kind of funny until I saw his price tag. A whopping $29.99!! This is quite the rip off if you ask me as a DS holder is far from necessary, especially for $29.99. I can understand a case to hold your DS, but this was perhaps the biggest rip-off I had seen Nintendo put out to date.
What do you think? Do you already have Mario holding your DS or DSi?
Here is a better shot of him.
