    Hi there!
    Been here a long time, mostly lurking about though!
    I had a DS a cpl of years ago, the big phat one. I decided to sell it as I needed money. I also had a psp. I sold it too.
    I regretted selling my two handhelds, but it was necessary. When I had the money, I decided to get a PSP again,
    crisis core had just come out, and I was kind of excited about it. I found the gameplay incredibly boring though (turn based ftw).
    There are pretty much no interesting games for me to play on the PSP, I use it mainly for playing emulated classic GB games when I'm taking a dump. (lol)

    I've decided to sell it and get a DS again. I love Nintendo, I love my Wii, and the DS lite is just great.
    Now my big question is: where do I get one the cheapest? AND! which backup cart should I get? I already have a micro SD which I sometimes use for the homebrew chan. on my wii... so a solutionen that uses one of those would probably be the cheapest for me. I had a DSX (what a piece of shit) for my old DS phat. NEVER getting one of those again....

    You made the right choice! [​IMG]
    Well, the CycloDS is the best card on the market. Or if your low on money, the Supercard DS One v3 is just as good!
    Dealextreme has low prices(no CycloDS though) but SLOW ASS SHIPPING! I haven't gotten mine and I ordered August 4th. :\
    Yeah, emulators run okay on the DS. Just the SNES runs pretty badly. Just to say. [​IMG] Good luck! [​IMG]

    thanks a lot! will get one of those two cards!
    yeah snes emulation doesn't bother me. I never use it on my ds anyway. I've used it for chrono trigger, but I have that on my wii now, and it's commin out for the ds anyway so..
    will try to get a white ds so it matches with my wii and macbook [​IMG]

    Actually I love my PSP and my DS Lite. Both genre of games are great! [​IMG]
    Well the cheapest "new" DS Lite could be bought for 130$.
    Also the best flash cart is Cyclo DS Evolution. It's worth the money, I haven't had any problems with mine! It runs everything perfectly, sometimes just some tricks will make it crash but most likely it's the best cart! =]

    well I traded it for a white ds lite (matches with my wii and macbook), with an M3 Simply card (plus a 1gb microsd). So far I think it's a great trade, am a cpl of hours into ff4, just beat the first boss... (octomammoth). I played the original ages ago, and playing it again in 3d glory is just great!

    Ehem acekard 2 is cheap and quick updated if there's game that doesnt run so I think that it is good choice too (and it is very cheap on DX ).
