    Hi All,

    after reading the DS release schedule...
    http://www.gamefaqs.com/ds/releases/region-1

    I feel like it's time to sell my good old DS. Am I or is gamefaqs missing something or is it really over? Is there at least one good game in the works for DS?

    Sell your DS, buy a 3DS.

    Entire DS game library + 3DS game library = :yay:

    @SoulX:
    I already have a 3DS. :)
    DS games look very ugly on a 3DS. They get scaled in a bad way.

    @Emigre:
    Hmmm... they've released Devil Survivor on the 3DS. I'm sure they'll do the same thing with part 2.

    Why sell it? You probably wouldn't get much money for it and like you said, DS games look bad on the 3DS. Do you not plan on ever replaying a DS game?

    Oh of course. But not in this century... ;)
    I'll replay some of them in 20 years on an emulator and have fond memories of my 30ies.... :)

    I actually prefer playing DS games on the 3DS... It makes games less pixelized.

    Don't sell it.
    As you said, it will be quite nostalgiac in 30 years.
    Just imagine talking with your grandchildren showing them such old technology.

    or you could sell it in 30 years after WW3 when they will become really rare

    Yeah, but I have a real GameBoy. That's enough retro junk. ;)

    Hold Select (I think it was) when booting a DS game on the 3DS to disable the scaling.

    Nintendo has a habit of putting out better versions of their same handheld once the handheld has been around for a while. Personally I'd wait for the improved 3DS--there's bound to be one.

    @Rydian:
    Great thanks.

    @Jiro2:
    Yes you're right, but I already have a day one 3DS. :)

    @Sick Wario:
    DS was a bad emu system IMHO because of it's extremely low resolution. And DL play is useless for me. My girlfriend refuses to play games and my playing friends have their own DSes with flashcarts.

    Keep it, it has great replay value compared to the $30 you might get for it.

    There is a new 3DS in the works already. That right thumbstick peripheral that they are adding to the current 3DS is supposed to be integrated into the new 3DS model whenever they decide to do it.

    There are some games that are still in Japanese that could be localized (not confirming)

    Devil Survivor 2
    Ni no Kuni
    Miles Edgeworth 2

    This is very understandable but it will be a while when this comes out

    For a start, nintendo needs to finish the WII-U and make the 3DS in tons of colours first!

    The 'new' model 3DS which is pure speculation anyway doesn't matter because as he's stated he already has one.

    If you really never see yourself using it, sell it. However the little space it takes up, the $30 or so you'll get from it isn't worth it, you're better off holding onto it, could even make a good birthday or christmas present for a kid you know, better use for it than $30 which is practically giving it away to Gamestop to make $100~ profit off of it whereas you could just give a kid the enjoyment of it, for a loss to you of $30 but for what to them will be worth much more.

    Retro consoles are also always nice to just hold onto for a few years after they're replaced by the new better model.

    You won't get too much for selling it anyway, so if you really don't want it, give it away or keep it, just as a collection item.
