    So i'm maybe getting white ds lite tomorrow, but i'm not sure. (i'd like to get black one, but whatever)
    Used one for 120$ with 3 games. (metroid prime hunters, warioware, new super mariobros.) So do you guys think that it's good price?
    I thought that i could sell the games and buy r4 + 1gb memorycard.
    I assume that r4 is good enough for playing roms and homebrew stuff? Atleast r4 sounds cooler than m3 and it's cheaper.

    And i'd like to know some good/playable ds games if possible. [​IMG]

    Playable? Basically all games are playable.

    Look in the Essentials topic in the NDS Games section for a list of recommended games. US$120 sounds okay for all that I guess (much better than the price in Australia [​IMG])

    Get a pink DS lite. That's Pink DS Lite.

    $120 is a nice price relative to US price. I would personally ask for the DS only for a lower price, but that's just pushing it. A slot-1 like R4 is great for homebrew.

    I have an R4 with a 1gb Kingston microSD and haven't had any problems with it so far. As far as compatibility, I haven't had issues with any ROMs and homebrew applications I've come across.

    As far as what games to get, I recommend:
    Brain Age 2
    Castlevania - Dawn of Sorrow
    Pokemon Diamond
    Taiko no Tatsujin DS
    Tetris DS

    Those are just a few of the great games that're available. The ones I listed are just the ones I'm currently engaged in. [​IMG]

    Great. Seems that i'll get that ds on monday. long time to wait or not.
    So is Gameyeeeah any good/trustworthy place?
    just noticed that dealextreme is out of r4's again, so that was cheapest place to get it

    Yep, it is, don't worry. I believe it's recommended by GBATemp, so it must be good, no? [​IMG]

    I personally had a really bad experience with them where the told me my order was shipped when in fact it was out of stock (it was not marked as out of stock when I placed my order). They didn't tell me the order hadn't shipped, I had to make a post on the message board (the only way of getting any support) about the status of my order, and that's when I found out. When I asked for a cancel of the order and my money back, they told me 1-3 days, it took 6.

    All in all it wasn't a big deal, I did get a full refund, and the support guy is pretty good about replying quickly on the message board.

    But this was just my experience, it's clearly not the norm.

    i just get that ds [​IMG] it's pretty fun, but i don't know which one is better psp or ds [​IMG]
    i ordered r4 and 1 gb microsd form dealextreme. now i'll just have to wait for them to arrive. :A

    Actually i have a problem with wifi. ds finds my router and signal is good. Then i input wep key and after that it can't connect.
    Is this some common problem?

    Edit: if i disable WEP then it's working fine, that's weird. I just read form nintendo site that wep is the only protection what works with ds :S
