    I have a original ds and it works fine but the ds lite looks pretty cool too. Is it worth it to upgrade to ds lite?

    I know it's been said a million times but I'm thinking of doing the same thing.

    So can anyone tell me the differences between Ds and Ds lite?

    yes you should upgrade.
    as i mentioned before the DS lite is smaller, lighter and sexier. not to mention brighter with four different brightness settings.

    I never owned the old DS and now have 2 DS lite (White and Pink, Me and My Wife, hehehe) But I have played the phat one and I like mine better. The screen in itself is such way better and WAY brighter. But you have a DS already so why spend money on that? its not broken is it?

    I would trade in the old one but looked really hard looking for one for my birthday so i would feel bad if i traded it in.

    Since you have DS, I would suggest just sticking with it. The DSLite is better than the DS, but's it not like GBASP was to GBA.

    im considering the same thing: my only question is that i don't want to pay for the same (okay better) system twice. can i trade it in and only pay like 20 or something?

    Guys you will find the trade in option will leave you out of pocket. They wont give you much for your DS Phat, your better off keeping it as a spare like i did and just saving up a bit more and buying a Lite without any trade in.

    And as shown in the last line. A lot of it is down to the user. I would suggest going to the store and playing on a DS Lite a bit, (the sample ones), see if you like it better and if it's enough of an improvement to be worth shelling out the money. I have a lite and both of my little brothers have a phat and I can say I much prefer the lite. Some people say the stylus is too big but im my opinion the DS Phat's stylus is too small, and in a very inconvienant spot. With the Lite is is easily useable.

    And I agree with this. I just gave my old one to my little brothers (and they pooled together to get a second one for each) but I really didnt want to only get 20 dollars for it at ebgames then see them stick it on the shelf for 80-100 bucks.
