That's what this letter seems to suggest, when a girl - forced to write a letter to a company for a school project - bugs Nintendo for a DS, and Nintendo obliges.
At least, that's what this exchange would have you believe. I have some doubts; there's no photo of the DS, which is weird, and if I worked for Nintendo I'd reserve the free handhelds for kids dying of cancer. Or who can at least come up with a better reason than... their parents wouldn't buy them one (even though they did buy a Wii).
We asked Nintendo of Australia to confirm this was legit and didn't hear back, so... bear that in mind before you start penning your own "Dear Nintendo" letters.
