    Heya.

    I live in the UK, and I am thinking about getting a DS Lite.

    IF I do, I will be trading in my PSP/FF Origins/FF Anthology/FFVI & FFXII.

    There are no games out at the moment for PSP. However, when Crisis Core comes out in the UK (blah --- I'll be waiting for months!), I will buy a PSP slim, with said game.

    I really want to play FFIII, so does anybody have opinions on this game?

    Also, I have a dilemma. Do I buy the White or Black DS Lite? OR wait until October, when the Silver DS Lite is released?

    Yea, black was on the top of my list!

    I'll probably get that, then.

    Thanks!

    Oh and, I don't know if I will bother with Zelda. Tbh, I'm not a HUGE Zelda fan . I'm not really a big Nintendo supporter either, but the DS has a lot more choice for games ^_^

    (don't bash me please --- lol)

    The only Zelda game I have played was Twighlight Princess when I used to have a Wii, but I didn't really enjoy it that much :3

    Yea...

    LOL. I think maybe I didn't like it, because I hadn't really played any of the other ones? Or maybe I just don't like it, haha.

    (Don't send me away! I joined this forum WHEN I actually did have a Wii, lol. Plus this forum is so much better than PS3chat lol. All they do is argue)

    Yea, I know there is a remake of FFIV coming out sometime in the future as well. And KH:358/2 Days. Although that probably won't hit the UK for like, 2 years xD Still, it's reason enough to buy a DS :)

    i think the white looks very "slick" but the black is cool too, may show fingerprints like the PSP does though..and nobody wants that.

    i too want the slim PSP now that its out, i miss my old one :/.

    anyways i havent played FFIII so i have no opinion but i do think you should get a DS. their so much fun. especially jam sessions! i have no musical talent what so ever and im loving it so far.

    i know what u mean about there not being any good psp games out too.. thats why i switched to DS.

    FFIII is pretty nice.

    I've only played about 4h so far of it, because I got side tracked with Children of Mana (action-RPG). I played through the original FFIII as a rom a while back, when that was the only way to play some of the FF games that were never release in NA. But with the updated 3D graphics, it is a definite buy for a RPG fan.

    I posted a list of DS games in another thread that are out or are coming out that look really good. I've added about 5 games this week (2-3 in the RPG category) so it's slightly out of date. Here's the RPG section:

    Archaic Sealed Heat - RPG
    Deep Labyrinth - RPG
    Dragon Quest IV - RPG
    Dragon Quest IX: Defenders of the Sky - RPG
    Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker - RPG (Pokemon like, but with Dragon Warrior mobs)
    Etrian Odyssey - RPG
    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles - RPG
    Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings - RPG
    Heroes of Mana - RPG
    Hoshigami Remix - RPG
    Luminous Arc - RPG
    Mega Man Star Force - RPG
    Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon - RPG
    Sakura Wars - RPG (Sakura Taisen)
    Zelda Phantom Hourglass - RPG

    If I remember, I'll post my updated list when I get off work.

    P.S. If you want the whole list, it's still on the first page of this forum, near the bottom.

    P.P.S. I would go with the black - fingerprints are easier to wipe off than yellow buttons :lol:

    Thanks for the comments, guys :)

    I made my mind up on Thursday. I went to game, and got a black DS lite (with Pokemon Pearl and Sonic, but I'm trading Sonic in for FFIII soon --- when I have money)

    So far I love the DS. I'm not a huge Pokemon fan, but I love the game xD
