i want a DS but do i need it?

Discussion in 'Nintendo DS' started by The_Loose_Cannon, Jun 25, 2007.

  1. sorry to upset you guys but this nintendo wiichat moderator has a PSP.....yes thats right a PSP.....:sick:

    in truth i love the thing but never really play it since my bf hogs it and i dont really have many games for it.

    after playing my wii for so long and realizing how many games that are out for the wii were originally for the DS (IE wario, big brain, cookoff mamma ect), i thought about buying one.

    its not that expensive and its got some neat games.

    so like i wrote in the title i want one (found one on amazon.com for cheap), but do i really need it if i have a wii and PSP?

    I recommened it if you're intending on going on long journeys or anything, but other then that I vote you don't bother :) unless you really hate your boyfriend for taking your PSP and you wish you could play with it so much :) then get a DS. But it's mainly good for holidays and such IMO.

    um,.... the psp is way better than the ds...... speaking from experience!!
     
  4. well its REALLY his and sometimes between boyfriends and girlfriends you buy things that are "gender friendly" so you get neutral things such as a BLACK PSP or a WHITE/BLACK DS lol. (hense why my new camera is black- i wanted the sony w55 but it came in pink :sick: it would look bad if my bf had that LMAO so black nikon s50 it is hehe)

    anyways, i like the psp but im getting board of it. could be the lack of games that we own. i should buy some new stuff. welp gamestop.com here i come


    you need to stop spaming so much or else ill issue you a 3 day no posting ban

    I'd definitely suggest getting a DS, but not just a DS, a DS Lite. Only a few bucks more and you get a brighter screen, and a liter handheld console. If you have a PSP, I still suggest it because, you've seen Nintendo, they have a totally different style on gaming than Sony. It's nice to have a mix of both.

    And,

    This isn't a popularity contest, she has a PSP and wants to know if she should get a DS.

    wait how am i spamming????
     
  7. because you type irrelevent content. its annoying. ive been reading most of your posts and youll be noticing your post count drastically lowering in the near future as i finish editing them.

    and yes FR youre right. i used to have a PS and ps2 and i had a nintendo 64 and almost every gameboy system. i love both sony and nintendo but still kinda want a DS to again have that balance. with every sony product i owned the other half.

    i should just swing it. its not like its expensive like the PSP was. i noticed that amazon.com has really cheap DS games and i saw in a toys r us circular that they had a buy 2 get the 3rd free sale on DS games.

    Go for it, it's really fun =]

    My brother and nephew both have a PSP and a DS and they both got a variation of games for each one and they love them both =]

    I have a DS myself and have been thinking about getting a PSP..

    But yeah go for it, I think the touch screen makes playing a game on the DS completely different so it won't be like just another hand held :)

    |I would say go for it Jill and buy r4ds even though you're a cop
    It's much better than wasting $30 every time you buy a ds game
     

  10. they have those on dealextreme.com

    i have NO idea what they do or what they are.

    they are a flash card..which you download roms of ds games(which is illegal to do...) and most hold 25 games and then its just like having the game..but you download them off the internet..which then you never buy games..but again its illegal to download games,,,


    anyway...i think its a good idea to get a ds...i have a wii,psp(only for grandtheft auto, and locco roco)360, and a ps3 and i wanted something to play the new games such supermario bros, diddykong racing, dinerdash, sim city, and i havent had a portible nintendo since gameboy color..so i bought one in may..best purchase i ever made!

    Personaly if your getting it i would get the ds lite and an r4ds it's like 80 buck (with membory) and it hols around 14-17 games. of course that's only if you don't mind that fact you'll be illegally downloading games. plus it lets you use action replay cheats ( fun when you get bored of a game, or stuck

    here the offical site
    http://r4ds.net/

    Here's where you would buy it from
    http://superds.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=5&zenid=dae21de8ac0bfb303d8a3d46577d5330
    get the bundle deal it'll save you 30 bucks.

    rep is good:smilewinkgrin:

    edit:
    oh right also it would probly make you look better here on wiichat to have a ds. whitch is cool

    I would suggest that you get the DS. It has a large library of games and I am sure that you will enjoy it. Besides, there is talk about the DS connecting to the Wii in the near future, so you wouldn't want to miss out on any extras. :lol:

    T_L_C,

    I held off buying a handheld because they didn't really appeal to me - since I've started working overseas and couldn't get my Wii over until a few weeks ago and there was a games shop round the corner - boredom got the better of me. I actually went in to buy a PSP but the price point really grinds my gears. So DS it was......

    Since I bought my DS Lite - I have been on it non-stop, for my money it is actually better than the Wii!! I literally can't stop using it.

    I recently purchased the r4DS and 2gb mSD card with it for homebrew and contradictory to popular belief it isn't only for illegal roms - it turns the DS into an MP3 player, movie player, image viewer, comic book reader, web browser and you can run various emulators on it and pick up abandonware legally free.

    The most impressive gaming purchase in my collection...:thumbsup:
