    Hi,

    I need help on deciding if I should get a DS or not. Are there any future plans on Nintendo coming out with another handheld game console in the near future? Do you think I should just go along and buy a DS?

    Have a nice day. :)

    The DS is still quite a new console and has many great function dat com with it, and has a touch screen to induce greater fun by making games more interactive. Also there are great games you can play like mario cart, supermario pokemon megamn diddy kong racin fanil fantasy 3 etc... so yeh, i think it would be good if you get one. Also you can have a say in this wonderful forum

    Hope you get one soon, an do tell me when you do and what game(s) you got

    Which game is your favorite? I would LOVE nintendogs (I heard such great stuff about it), pokemon, or a yugioh one.

    I have to agree, The DS is quite an amazing handheld. Many great games, hours of fun, plus wifi. If you have some spare time to kill before school, work, / anything. The DS is your best friend. lol

    I say go for the DS Lite. Its a great hand-held and there are many good games on it at the moment. Such games include Animal Crossing, New Super Mario Bros and ofcourse Mario Kart (online is excellent).

    Get a DS Lite if you do so. You can also get the Max Media Player, "and a compact flash card" and play MP3s, Videos, and some homebrew games on your DS. "hacked" StarFox Command is great! Sonic Rush is perfect for the nestalgic gamer. Mario Kart DS is fun, "or so ive heard" and Tetris is always an option. DO NOT GET THE OLDER MODEL DS!!!

    Well, I went along and got a black DS Lite with the new Pokemon Diamond game.


    Are the cases mandatory?? They don't seem very protective to me.

    I meant mandatory as in, if you don't get one will your DS get scratched up like crazy.

    sky.... I think that was a little overreacting for such a small thing....
    I got nintendogs and it rocks!! Great way of practicing to get a real dog. I also liked animal crossing. I would suggest getting that.

    i'd say its going to be a long while before we see any new handheld system from nintendo because they just released the Wii, so right there is a lot of resources going into hardware production. And secondly the DS is still selling like wild fire. At the very least they're going to wait until sales on the DS slow down a bit before they even consider what's going to come next, and I dont see that happening any time soon based on the sales figures that everyone is putting out.

    I do wonder though what the next handheld will be, will it be a successor to the DS or a successor to the GBA? I know they said that their original intention for the DS was to be a "third leg" in their hardware division and not be intended to replace the gameboy line. But i think they only said that so they would save face should the DS pull a Virtual Boy and sink like a rock. But that has obviously not happened and the DS has totally strongarmed the SP out of sales, so it makes me wonder if they even will continue to consider themselves as having a third leg of hardware development or simply fuse the DS and Gameboy lines together, and the next handheld will be the successor to both, one in the same?

    Only time will tell but this has seriously got me wondering.
