    iam not so much fan of rom numbering (ofcourse it kinda helps) but do you think that ds will reach same amount roms than gba?

    Depends on how long it is before Nintendo's next handheld system is released, but it's possible. We're up to #869 now, and #369 was released 11 months ago. That's 500 roms in less than a year, and GBA games are still being released. Once GBA development stops, DS games will probably come out even faster.

    By the end of March we *could* be over 1000, since there are 51 confirmed undumped and 114 releases between now and then.

    The DS is neither PAL nor NTSC, those are television standards.

    Anyway, there are not really 2700+ GBA games for the same reason, plus all the 2 or 3 in one shovelware and the GBA videos.
