    I was thinking of buying a Nintendo DS light but wasn't sure of what all it could do. I heard that it has wifi and stuff like that. I had one of the old ds' when they first came out a few years ago and the picno chat really sucked. I was wondering if the picno chat and multiplayer gaming would be via wifi. I have a wireless router in my house and would like for it to work like that.

    Thanks

    yeah, you can talk online in a handful of games, you'll have to look them up.

    No, PictoChat isn't via wifi, but multiplayer is. Multiplayer is ok at times, and not so good other times. The best wifi experiences would probably be Metroid Prime Hunter (especially if you like FPS's) and Mario Kart DS. I highly recommend both those games if you're looking for wifi games.

    Is the Metroid Game like a halo style game on multiplayer? I have MPC for the wii and was wondering if the metroid on ds would be like an arena style game?

    I look at Picto Chat as a pre-developed chat system for the upcoming DS 2, but that's going to far =P. It was a neat idea that could of gone a long way if there was online or more features that could be added.

    The DS Lite is the same as the original DS. It's just a more sleek design with a brighter screen. All the capabilities are the same.

    So your saying that the old DS has wifi? I don't think so because when I tried to play games multiplayer I had to be within 60 feet of the person I was playing. (Which is pretty pointless)

    Yes, the old DS has the same wi-fi internet capabilities in addition to local wireless play (what you are describing). No new features were added to the Lite.
    The games must be made to work over the wi-fi connection though. Picto-chat does not work over wi-fi in DS Lite or old DS, just local wireless.
