Australians play DS, set record

Parramatta, Westfield Australia was the site of a record-breaking event on October 12th, where 381 people came together and played DS. Breaking the record for most people playing DS in one place, at one time (what was the previous record, 8?), the day showed 15 lucky people walking away with a free DS Lite, as well as other prizes awarded on the spot.

While Nintendo didn't have that many pictures up on the site (count 'em, 2), we can see from what was there that most seemed to have had a blast at the event. We wonder, though, if the majority were children taking part in the event, where did the parents hang out?

Really? There wasn't more, at maybe, PAX, or something?
