    DS vs. DS Lite

    Hey there everyone! I'm new here and can't wait to get back into the world of Nintendo, I've gotten sort of disillusioned with the rest of the gaming world.

    I want to ask real quick which handheld would be my best choice here, the DS or DS Lite? Or, should I just wait for spring to roll around for the rumored Wii price drop and buy the Wii instead?

    My last Gameboy was the Advance and after playing that for a few years I turned over to Playstation 2. Well, Playstation isn't doing so well now and they haven't really done much to improve their system except for beefier graphics I guess. To me though, graphics do not make the game.

    So, with the advent of the Wii and the DS I figure now is as good a time as any to get back to my Nintendo roots. I've bought my first issue of Nintendo Power since the late 90's and have set aside the cash to purchase a new Nintendo console/handheld.

    I can't wait to hear your responses and I hope you are all as nice as I hope you are! lol

    Best regards,
    -Austin

    DS Lite definitely. There is also a newer, slimmer version of the DS coming out. But it won't be revealed until "the current DS Lite sales slow down," so I don't see it coming out anytime soon.

    BTW, welcome to the forums. I'm new to this forum myself.

    The DS Lite is the much better bet. The only reason why you should buy a phat would be if you had massive hands. (The edges on the lite may make it hard to hit the triggers without pain otherwise)

    Ya I would say DS right now because they are easier to find.The WII you can barely find and it is selling so good they wont drop the price.Oh and the Phat dont get that the lite is litter slimer and brighter.

    What about the Lite being more prone to the hinge cracking? Also, given that using a laptop for more then 20 minutes or so will cause my hands to hurt crazy bad do you think the "phat" would be a better choice for me?

    I still say Lite..its generally made to be a upgrade from the DS.Despite the issue with the laptop if your hands arent all massive and stuff you should be fine.

    Yeah, they did stop making DS Phats, but they're still findable.
