    I sold mine about a year ago

    Now I want to buy it again for B/W but i don't want to spend $100 and then probably sell it again for one game.
    Have there been any good games since may 2010?

    You might consider jumping to 3DS.
    You will be able to play DS games and wont have to buy another 3DS if any 3DS content catches your eyes [​IMG]!

    If you wait a little bit more the price of DSis will go way down.

    Happy gaming [​IMG]

    if you're not interested in going for the 3DS I would still recommend dslite over regular ds. better battery life and the like.

    Id recommend saving up for a 3DS, but if thats not an option I'd go with a DSi (cause of the extra features were pretty fun when I didnt feel like actually playing a game) and if the DSi's extra features don't catch your eye go with the DS Lite

    Grab 3DS. Not only can u play DS games but also 3DS games. A win win situation. The only problem would be the cost. I recommed DSi though if you dont want 3DS because the DSi supports more type of WLAN than the DS/DSL which means u can go online for some random wi-fi battles. If you want bigger screen slap in some more money and grab XL.

    Grab a used DS. Less than $100. And it doesn't break your wallet.

    I would wait a bit longer If you really want to go with an older DS model. Once the 3DS starts circulating and a bunch of people have them I think the prices on the other models are gonna tank pretty hard and you'll be able to pick one up cheap.

    Buy a 3DS and a pokemon black cart.
    3DS has a support for ds games and some flashcarts.

    The World Ends With You (TWEWY) is really great. You also have the Pokemon games that are fun. OH! They have Plants Vs. Zombies for DS now its epic! You also have all the Mario games like the remake of Super Mario 64, and you still have all the Final Fantasy games.

    the 3DS is for you not only you'll be able to play DS game but you'll have a new handheld with a lot of features with awesome graphics and awesome coming games

    but of course is $250 cuz is new so if you want to stay cheap get the DS
