    Hey, well I have the original silver ds and looking around everyone seems to be getting the sexy ds lite. If I were to sell my ds on eBay I would get around £45-£55; [About $90-$110] which means around £75-£65; [About $150-$130](if you take away the money I get from selling from the price of a new lite~ £100) Is it worth it or should I just stick with my silver ds?

    Thanks! And any feedback is appriciated :cool:

    EDIT: Question answered, thanks currently selling my ds on ebay. I just need to know now which colour to get :p

    I have a DS Lite and I say it's well worth the money. It's more durable, it's smaller, it's thinner, and the screens are the same size as normal DS!

    Get the ds lite! My cousin has the old ds and it is bad compared to my ds lite.
    Besides, pretty much all the accesories are now for the ds lite.

    Thanks everyone for your replies!

    I'm not too sure what to do with my original - I could either sell it to GAME for £40 cash and it would be quick. Or I could eBay it and get a little more but I have to register, card details, paypal and all that junk.

    Do you think GAME will mind if I don't have the stylus (lost it)? And its also got a couple of smalls dents on the top left and right corners.

    I did some research and I found this http://www.play.com/Games/DS/GENBRW/3-/3272271/NDS_Lite_High_Grade_Silicone_Skin/Product.html Theres one for the white one as well. So far the black has interested me slightly more but I'm still on the fence.

    Oh and on that link play.com said for description -

    "NDS lite high grade silicone skin - Black.
    Protect your Sony NDS lite from the elements with this skin tight silicone protective skin and screen protector. Silicone skin prevents scratches, chips and finger prints from accumulating on the NDS lite. " :lol:

    The original DS was out for ages so it wasnt right after, and im not being mean but you should have researched before you bought the product.

    Ds lite is much better IMO .. only thing bad about it is that the GBA carts stick out rather that being flush with teh system

    Keep the original, unless you have a lot of money to spare.

    I was wondering this, but then whats the point, hounestly? For an extra bit of light, who can't hounestly see the screen now on the original..

    ANYWHO, when your original breaks or exploads or whatever, but the new one :).

    I'd save your cash for now and buy some games.

    Its mainly out of jealousy :D I saw all my friends with nice sleek lites and when I got out my phat DS and compared it with the lites they looked much nicer. I've also got quite a lot of life out of my phat and the battery had started to wear out a little, and there was an annoying dead pixel. Anyway its all sold now, no going back :cool:
