    We all know that there will be a grand new DS: The DSi!
    But i am wondering, which handheld do you like the most? (From nintendo.)
    You can choose: The cool GBA, the stylish DS or the new DSi!
    I like the DS lite the most. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The DS can play both DS and GBA games. I guess I'll pick the DS, then. It's the most balanced of the three. I don't care about the DSi features and DSiWare, to be honest.

    DSiware might get better since third party support is beginning to occur.

    I play my DSlite most these days but my all time favourite Nintendo handheld is the Gameboy Micro. Small and sexy.

    A DS for me, since it can play a both DS and GBA games, i really don't see anything special about the DSi at all.

    Personally, I Think the Ds Lite is better than the Dsi. For people with flashcarts we all know that nintendo is gradually stopping people from using flash carts.And A Camera isnt necessary,or the media player.
    Sure DsiWare is cool but not as great as homebrew.
    Ds lite has a gba slot,which opens up for more homebrew

    DSi has an SD slot, which opens up for way more homebrew/hacking.

    DSi, GBA is old school now, can't think of a game I want to play on it.. DS is ok if you want GBA with DS so that leaves me for the updated DSi with the new features

    As well as more RAM and a bit more powerful CPU, which also opens up for more powerful homebrew.


    As for GBA, i don't find that many GBA games interesting, but the few i do, i just play them at my DSLite but none of them is a must have for me..

    I have 2 reasons why i dont buy a DSi:

    1. i dont see myself making pictures with my DSi.
    2. i have an ipod! i dont need a mediaplayer on my DSi.

    *Thinks* [​IMG]
    OK, i know my choice, i choose...

    THE... DS!!!


    Lite, of course.
