    I dunno about you guys, but in my school, there's barely any people that play their DS in public because they get made fun of :\ I think the DS (maybe Nintendo as a whole) is seen as kiddie-ish, unlike the PSP, which I guess is seen as for a more mature audience. What do you guys think?

    I have no problem with it. Most days me and some friends can be found in the park at lunchtime playing some multiplayer. Sometimes on the bus, too.

    No, because I don't. I know better than to risk that. [​IMG]
    Though if in public includes "at school" then no, I don't really feel bad about playing my DS in school.

    What he said.

    I mean, it is a portable console right, so i play it wherever i can xD And most of the time people actually get interested in what it is i'm playing or doing with it etc.etc. (my coworker just bought a ds lite with an r4 just cuz she liked it when she tried it out once xD

    Here's some words of wisedom: If you don't care, then others won't either.

    Oh and nintendo beeing "kid-ish" is total bull. Could explain myself but don't think i have to [​IMG]

    I usually take my DS most places but when I am in public I usally do not have a need to break it out but I will if need be. I have used my DS to keep a grocery list before as well as using it as a calculator to see how much I am spending before getting to the checkout.

    Absolutely no problem with it. I also play with my Micro in public a lot, and people look at it with awe [​IMG]

    It's nice to see that almost nobody knows the poor Micro [​IMG]

    No, but if I do, I might get mugged then killed, the people who play PSPs in public here(And there are a zetta lot!) are total douches though.

    Screw people who say it's kiddy(Patapon and LocoRoco are kiddy dammit, and they're one of the better PSP games), I'll slap my DS(well, okay, maybe not) with a 5-star game running in their faces! It's not all about 'mature' shit and graphics, it's all about the gameplay! (and Shanoa in Order of Ecclesia [​IMG])

    People who laugh can go fuck themselves for all I care. Then again you are in school and most people in school are immature douche bags anyway. I've never had a problem with playing with my DS in public, although I wouldn't really talk to my DS in public though [​IMG] That is a little weird to do, I mean, even people with their mobile phones don't hold it in front of them to talk [​IMG]

    It's wierd to play games in public -.-
    You go out in public to hang with friends or shopping...Games is either a ride entertainment or home entertainment, not outside. You are pretty anti- social if you have the need/desire to play the DS everywhere...

    Nope. So what if i'm playing with NDS? It's not as if I'm bullying someone, anyway...

    That aside, anyone who laughs at people playing NDS are actually jealous of you, you know. They can't get to play with it for various reasons, so they laugh at it. Pity them... [​IMG]

    I lost the ability to be embarassed a long time ago! I use my DS at the bus stop and on the bus most days. Admittedly I don't speak into it as I don't really play those games. Plus, the way I look it'd take a brave person to laugh or take the piss! [​IMG]
