    Wondering how many of you did not upgrade and still play on your DS?
    How often?
    Which DS?

    As often as before, DS Lite, didn't upgrade
    3DS doesn't have much to offer content wise

    My DSLite is building dust in the closet. Never touched it since.... June???

    My DSi is with my sister. She uses it a lot.

    I always use my 3DS now.

    I have a DSi, which is my first and only DS.
    I don't use it anymore, since I went through all of the "good" games in its library and I have nothing to do in pokemon.
    Also, the top-screen has this annoying blue tint on it.

    I'm going to play it again when that Fire Emblem fan translation comes out, nothing else. It's been months since I've played it..... (DS Lite)

    I play all my DS games on my 3DS, though I've been mostly using my PSP since I got it. Planning on starting Love Plus today, so I'll be using it.

    I play it on occasion. I tend to jump from system to system.

    It's a DS Lite, btw. Planning on getting a 3DS eventually.

    I play my DSL daily with my CycloDS. Only ever use my WoodR4, DSTT and DSTWO to keep them up to date and make sure they still work.

    There are 100+ "good" games in the library. I am sure you havent gone through them all. I have completed 37 games to date and have 100+ to go. This is while still playing Wii and PS3 games as well. If you want a full list of "good" games, PM me.

    Mario Kart DS and Warioware Touched are godlike so i play them too.

    I use my DSlite all the time. I want to get a 3DS, but I've seen the resolution for DS games, so I'm holding off for the next version. It's either a 1:1 pixel but smaller than the DS screen, or same size as the DS screen and all pixelated. :glare:

    I stopped using my DS Lite regularly after I got my PSP Go back in July/August, just played a Picross/Crosswords puzzle now and again, but I've just picked it up again last week to re-play the first Ace Attorney, the latest Professor Layton, and... that's about it. Still has a ton of games I have to play.

    I'm still using a DS Lite and I never felt the urge to upgrade to a DSi due to the scarcity of "good" titles. DSiEnhanced games didn't really bring much to the "plate" either, and the only reason for me to get one would be DSiWare and the "Collector Value".

    I don't think I'll be getting one anytime soon though, I'll wait till they're cheapo and it will most likely end up on my Console Trophy Wall, never to be touched (at least not much).

    I feel pretty much the same about the 3DS since as of now it's expensive and there aren't all that many good titles for it just yet. The 3DS WILL have a good library though, so it's a different story.

    Truth to be told though, I program for the DS more than I actually "play" on it - I finished pretty much all the games I was interested in so-far and right now I'm occupied with the PSP. I'm pretty sure I will find some more "gems" for the DS, but until that time comes, it will remain a piece of hardware that I play with rather than play games on.
