    Really? I actually bought and then returned the original DS the day I got it because it was so bulky, heavy and uncomfortable. The DS lite has a much brighter and crisper set of screens, so I would go with it over the original.

    I'm sort of trying to descide if I want to get a DS lite anytime soon, aswell. I had a PSP when it first came out and after like 6 months, I sold it because it's games were rather dull and over priced (yes they are only $10 more than DS games but their also only $10 less than console games that are like a million times better). When the DS lite came out, I went to the store and I really like it; it's both easy on the eyes and has pretty innovative gameplay. That said, I've been looking at the list of DS games and there are only a handful that I want: Metroid Hunters, Mario Kart, Starfox Command, Viewtiful Joe, and the new Super Mario Brothers. That may seem like enough for some, but that's pretty much it and there aren't any upcoming games for the system that interest me.

    What bothers me about the DS and most portable game systems in general is their lack of originality. All their games tend to be ports from their bigger and better console cousins and it's gets boring. Nintendo keeps cranking out these Mario-themed versions of games like a basket ball game and soccer game and tennis and golf...ENOUGH!!! I love Mario, but they're going to where him out! I've recently looked at the PSP line up and finally, it's games are getting a bit more varied. They've got GTA (which is a port, but a good port), Rush (a cool looking racing game), Gangs of London, and even really interesting games like LocoRoco. I wish Nintendo would stop catering sooo much to the RPG/Pokemon/Anime fans and start doing some mature DS games. I don't want Mario with an AK-45, but maybe some interesting fighting games, non-Nintendo-Mario-styled racers, new 3rd person adventures, and perhaps some more puzzle games. Wii is showing that Nintendo is finally showing some depth, but they need to extend that to the DS in the way Sony is starting to do with the PSP if they want a bigger fan base.

    So...yeah...that's what I think.

    But don't be surprised by the graphics, they suck but it is really good.

    I partially agree with you here dude; personally I didn't find the DS (normal, not lite) to be particularly clunky, certainly no moreso than the PSP anyway. And as far as weight and size go, I don't think any of us are in a position to be complaining about its size, even though I don't believe it's anything to complain about, especially when you consider that only a few years ago that kind of processing power was only available in something that was alot bigger, chunkier, alot less managable and not even as powerful (In case anyone doesn't follow, I'm referring to the N64). Now we have a neat handheld which can do even more, has more features (wireless communications between consoles, download play, WiFi play, touch screen), and... better graphics!

    As far as mature games go... Yeah, we could probably do with a couple more. I read somewhere a little while ago, that the only DS game With an MA15+ (I'm not sure what the EU/US/UK equivalant rating is, maybe 17+ or 21+?) rating is Resident Evil: Deadly Silence. I would personally hope for a couple more, and not nesacerrily just for gorier gameplay (although games soaked in blood can be alot of fun!) but for more complex, darker and more intriguing atmospheres and storylines and so on. One DS mature game of note though would be Another Code: Two Memories (Called Trace Memory in some regions). It was one of the first DS games I bought (I bought the Mario Kart bundle) and I still havent finished it because its so friggin hard! There are some mature games out, but not enough to say I'm satisfied with the range, so some more would be nice

    Well I may be only one here but I'm going to say it.... I think the PSP is better. Nice graphics for a decent price, the only thing you really need to worry about is buying a flash card (last time i saw the 4Gig for 200 dollars). I think its the best handheld console to date, so in my opinion you should keep your PSP.
