Both my boys have them. Youngest has a pet hamster on it, eldest plays a lot of pokemon.

The best feature to my mind is the local networking - quite a lot of the games can be played on two or more consoles at once by wirelessly downloading snippets of software from the console with the cartridge.

Some of the games can be played over the web (either with individuals with known IDs or with anonymous people across the world).

Personally, I've always been a fan of good ol' Tetris, but Worms: Open Warfare is getting under my skin as an evening wind-down (#1 son knows when I've borrowed it because he has to charge his DS in the morning).

Oh, #1 son is on his his second DS - the hinges split apart after four or five months' use, without any physical abuse from him.

We got it replaced by the store where we bought it, even without the receipts (it turned out that I had taught half the staff in the store...)

I almost destroyed the wifi function of mine, i was trying to add an external antenna but accidentially ripped the antenna connector off of the wifi module, I had to solder two wire wrap wires to the contacts and flood it with glue, but it works now :)

as long as it works... it doesn't have to be pretty. i was thinking of an external antenna myself... i do have a spare wifi antenna lying around from the ds that saved mine, i might as well try! i'll post back with some results junits.

I,m 12 and I love it! Mine is white but I would rather have a red and black one. The edges get dirty on most all white ones. Animal Crossing: Wild World is an awesome game. I play it all the time and I would rather have one of these than any other handhelds simply because of all the cool games that are avaliable.

Should you get one? As M.Bison would say, YES! DSi is just a DS Lite with a camera and external memory.

thanks for the comment... i kinda seem to have hijacked the thread with this lol! anyway if you want a flash cart DO NOT GET AN R4! the production of them stopped a long time ago! unfortunately i fell foul of this after buying one from amazon! anyway if you want a good flashcart (many call it the best) get a "cyclods" it is what i own now and have not been dissapointed. if you need a micro sd card to go in it then i suggest 7dayshop.com as a source as they are very cheap there! all info i have given is from personal experience so its all safe to buy (apart from the r4!) lol anyway i hope you get your flashcart and enjoy it. sorry if im not allowed to post links but you ight also want to check out romulation after you get the card (*wink* *wink*) enjoy and thanks for the comment

just thought id tell everyone who reads the comments that my ds is no longer going to be blue and purple instead the top screen now has 8 red leds in (four facing the player and four facing the outside world) and the bottom half is where the blue ones are to be fitted. i have a feeling (after having tested the top screen) that this ds will no longer be useable as the player will become blind within the first five minutes of play! meh, i prefer psp's anyay, that turned green!

Mine broke. I think that the upcoming game "Scribblenauts" looks amazing. I'm quite happy with my nintendo at the moment though, perhaps you could look at the gameboy micro? I love mine more than my DS, it's sooooo portable! CHOOSE!

It's awesome. Games that I would most recommend: Tetris DS New Super Mario Bros Super Mario 64 DS Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Yoshi's island DS Zelda: Phantom Hourglass Games I would DEFINITELY steer clear of: Tony Hawk Downhill Jam Sprung! Big Brain Academy Anamaniacs Whiffle Ball

Yoshi's island SUCKZ! It can get fustrating and doesn't have any repley value. Dont get it! Get mario kart DS instead. It's the best DS game ever.

The DS Lite is a fun system. Simply playing it is fun, but when you start to play multiplayer, it turns into the best system ever.

I own one but seldom play it anymore. My brothers, however each have one and they play the heck out of them.

Best game IMO would have to be the Pokemon ones. I know a 17-year-old probably shouldn't be playing them, but I'm hopelessly addicted.

One brother had the original DS when it first came out, however he cracked the upper screen by hitting it on his head in frustration (lol!) He got a replacement and we now all have DS lites, which hold up very well after loads of play time.

I know several people who have had problems with original DS becoming broken at the hinges. For color, I would go with the black and red combo one. It looks sweet and is unique.

Hope I helped =]

Have you got one? Yes, an original one(fat) Do you like it/ why? I like it because it features most of my favorite games. Best game? Super Mario DS, Pokemon Diamond/Pearl, Mario Kart DS Why is it good? It can be hours of fun with the wireless capibilities. Best color to get it in? I wouldn't know, i have a fat DS silver coloured

Two of three kids have them. Don't get the web-browser; it's painfully slow and the display isn't up to most web pages (YMMV especially if you look for those cell-phone oriented web pages.)
