    To buy or not to buy...

    Well, I have a DS, although it's the original model (DS Phat as people like to call it). Problem is, it has a faulty touch screen, which won't calibrate, and will draw to the left or right as were touched. It's really annoying, annoying to the point that I don't want to play any games which involve touching the touch screen, which is why I'm not even gonna buy Zelda:PH. It's also got a speaker which makes cracking noises at a certain note...

    So, I'm now wondering, if it's worth buying a DS Lite. The DS has been out for over 3 years, so a new handheld could be coming out any time soon, which is why I don't know if I ought to get one. Want to know your opinions, if I should get a Lite.

    PS. I live in a place without Nintendo service, meaning I can't get it repaired.

    I'd buy a used lite on ebay or somethin'

    the original DS is sexier though!

    The DS Lite is selling amazingly well. It's very unlikely they'll be replacing it with something new within the next few years.

    I'd say the DS has another couple years in it, so I would probably get another since it's your touchsceen that's messed up.

    Trade your DS Phat into EB/Gamestop right now, they're having a "Get $20 Extra for Console trade-ins". You might as well get the DS Lite now as a new handheld won't be out any time soon.

    The DS is inly in it's "young adult" phase of its life, it's got a long ways to go.

    at rivaldestiny, he can't trade it in because they keep trade in records and when they find out they have a broken DS they will make him pay the money back

    heh, I've gotten away with trading in broken guncon controllers, gamecube controllers, and un-formatted memory cards =P...never had a call back.
