Don't know about anyone else, but the Nintendo DS handheld system has been my favorite gaming system to date. That's going back quite a few years, mind you. I started gaming back in arcades in the 70s as a kid, and my first home console was the Atari 2600. I've burned through a lot of hardware between that time and now, and looking back, it's no contest; the DS has packed the most punch for me when it comes to gaming entertainment. It's personal, it's portable, and the interface has opened things up for folks to create some really creative content. I'm excited for 3DS. It's obviously an amazing piece of hardware, but I likely won't adopt a system 'til next yet. I'll wait for the inevitable revision and (hopefully) price cut. I'd also like to see the software library build up a bit, not to mention see the advent of back-up options. In spite of looking forward to the new handheld, I'm already lamenting the loss of DS. We're about at that time where the software will begin to dry up for the system, and I'm sad to see it go. It's been one of the most fun rides in gaming for me thus far. Nintendo DS, you will be missed!
