i got my wii on release date. i played the fk out of it at first and i still play it a fair amount. but after i beat zelda im waiting on other titles to play. so i got a ds around christmas time, thanks to my girl for getting me one. and i absolutely love it. i hadnt had a hand held console since the first gameboy. i must say ive played it a lot since i got it, more than the wii lately even. but if i were you id keep the wii and wait and buy a ds when you can. but that is me. i love my wii too much to get rid of it. however, you couldnt pry that ds away from me either.
