Secretary of State gets a custom DS Lite

If you were holding a conference for the eight richest nations in the world and needed to give out gifts fast, what is the first thing you would think of? Certainly not a videogame product, right? Before the G8 conference officially kicks off in Toyako, Hokkaido, at least three important bureaucrats in attendance were presented with gifts. The US’s very own Condoleezza Rice’s offerings consisted of some stickers in her likeness, as well as a customized DS Lite.

The DS looks pretty hip, but I don’t know if that is the most profound gift I could give a world leader. I suppose it could serve as a reminder that the eight largest nations should conserve energy, and therefore need to keep their console playing to a minimum. Personally, I’m digging the stickers. I look forward to the day when I get so popular that someone gives me a sticker of myself.

Let me pose this to you guys. What the hell kind of videogame product would you buy a minister at G8? Also, how would it be customized?
