Nintendo DS

The Nintendo DS. The latest in handheld console gaming. My best friend is absolutely obsessed with this system, and after hearing about all of it's features, I just might get one myself. For those who don't know what the Nintendo DS is, it's the latest handheld console out from Nintendo. No, it's not a Gameboy, but a DS. The DS is a thin, sleek, new dual-screen portable gaming system. The second screen is a special touch screen that you can use with the included sylus, or a seperately sold thumb-stylus that straps onto your thumb for easier playing. Unlike the rival, PSP, it doesn't have a joystick, (because it folds over to protect the screens) it's doesn't feel like you're playing with a mondo-taco, it doesn't use disks, and it comes with an online chat client, called PictoChat, and comes with a Metroid Prime: Hunters demo. This could be, by far, be the greatest handheld system ever to touch the face of the world. What do you guys think?

I was thinking about getting one soon. I don't like silver, so im waiting for a black or red one to come out and also more games (plus back order). Im not sure about the PSP... might get it after a price drop. I need to learn how to save money. credit cards are evil.

Yeah, if I get a DS That will be the main reason why I get it. The only reason I wouldn't get it is because I don't have much luck with handheld systems. I have owned every single Gameboy released and all of the sceens have caved in and have a big black spot in the middle of the screen. Except for a terrible Pokemon Yellow Edition Gameboy Color with pokemon all over it and a broken speaker that was defective when I bought it... I also still have my SEGA Game Gear, which only runs for about five minutes, because the giant rechargable battery pack on the back is only three years younger than I am and is so burned out that I have to play it while it's plugged into a wall. Curse my luck...

Wow, Atari. That sounds like a pretty good idea... I should try that.

Of course it's nothing compared to GC. If it was superior to a Gamecube, we would have a much better home console than we do now.

I think its a waste of money. The gamboy advance sp was the best, due to its small and thin size, its easy to cary, compared to the DS. some huge eating plate when folded open. SP was the best during its times.....

It's not that big, even when unfolded. DS is extremely compact. And the cartriges aren't even cartriges. They're tiny little chips. You're exxaggerating, a bit...

im not gonna get one, just cause theyre gonna make another gameboy thing eventually, and then the DS will be out of style. I dont want to buy DS and then find out that the next gameboy is going to be something twice as great, and have wasted my money on the DS.

How far does the pictochat go in like range?
