Nintendo DS will change the way people play video games.
The Nintendo DS incorporates advanced touch-screen technology, with breathtaking 3D graphics, all in a sleek silver design. The touch screen feature allows players to get closer to the games by giving them a far more direct, faster control. Upon opening the Nintendo DS, gamers are greeted by not one, but two three inch 260,000 colour TFT screens, the bottom of which is touch sensitive. Instead of having to use the buttons and d-pad to control games, players can use the stylus, thumb strap included with the console or finger, to rub and tap their way through games.
Games can easily be played with friends thanks to the revolutionary wireless functionality provided by the Nintendo DS. Up to 16 players can communicate using PictoChat, or play multiplayer games at distances of up to 100ft.
The Nintendo DS comes complete with stereo speakers and a microphone built in, setting the mood and adding to the overall interactive experience. It also features two separate game slots, one for Nintendo DS games and one for Game Boy Advance games. The Nintendo DS is fully backwards compatible with all Game Boy Advance titles, and with over 550 titles, it means you can play all of your old favourites.
Nintendo DS will come with a free software feature called PictoChat. This allows users to write text or even create their very own drawings to send to friends within a radius of up to 100ft. The Nintendo DS, when in sleep mode, will spring to life if it senses another DS transmitting in range, alerting users that someone wants to chat or play games with them!
  • Size (when closed): 148.7 millimeters (5.85 inches) wide, 84.7 millimeters (3.33 inches) long, 28.9 millimeters (1.13 inches) tall
  • Top Screen: A backlit, 3-inch, semitransparent reflective TFT color LCD with 256 x 192 pixel resolution and .24 mm dot pitch, capable of displaying 260,000 colours
  • Touch Screen: Same specs as top screen, but with a transparent analog touch screen
  • Wireless Communication: IEEE 802.11 and Nintendo's proprietary format
  • wireless range is 30 to 100 feet, depending on circumstances
  • Other features: Embedded PictoChat software that allows up to 16 users to chat at once, embedded real-time clock, date, time and alarm
  • Sound: Stereo speakers providing virtual surround sound, depending on the software
  • Battery: Lithium ion battery delivering six to 10 hours of play on a four-hour charge, depending on use

What a fabulous handheld console. I mean nintendo have really out done themselves with this amazing touch-screen technology. Yeah it doesnt give out the best graphics youll ever see but its got some amazing games.
Every game seems to use the touch screen in a unique way which u will love. If ure looking for a decent handheld console dont get a PSP get a DS

If you don't already own a DS this is a superb buy. The DS is currently leading the console wars, its outselling all other hand held and home systems and if that isn't enough to get you interested how about this...

The DS features stereo sound, a microphone to interact with games by blowing to help start a fire (Lost in blue) or blow away clouds (Yoshi touch and go), and even speech recognition (Brain training).

The DS features unique touch screen controls which game developers are taking full use of, for example performing operations (Trauma centre) or playing sudoku! The DS also features 2 screens which can be useful for playing on one screen while viewing a map or stats on the other screen.

Many games now even feature a 2 player mode with only 1 cartridge while the 2nd DS will download the multiplayer option.

What else could the DS possibly need you ask? Well it also features internet access to play against player's world wide on games such as Mario Kart and Animal Crossing. There are also download points in various shops where demos can be downloaded to test a game before you actually buy it, or even downloading new packages for your current games! Picross allows owners to download new puzzles to extend the games life.

Finally the future for the DS is also looking pretty good, with connection options to the Wii, the possibilities will be endless!

Upgrade:
With all that said, if your willing to buy a DS from new and you have a bit of spare cash, go for the DS Lite, it's a much improved version of this system, however you still can't go wrong with owning a standard DS. However some people also prefer the Bulkiness of this older system as they can be handled easier.

 DS - you won't leave home without it!

The DS is not one of the best handheld consoles ever made. It is the best handheld console ever made! It has not one but two screens (the bottom one is a touch screen) and it has a stylus to use the touch screen with. The stylus makes using the touch screen simple and easy. It has an in built microphone so in some cames you whistle, blow or even shout at you your DS! It's only real let down is the graphics but they're about as good as a Nntendo 64. It has some amazing games including New Super Mario Bros and Mario Kart DS. It has wireless multiplayer which in some games is amazing. Also, if you go to a hotspot you can use Wi-Fi and in some games you can play people around the world. Games like Dr kawashima's brain training will improve your mental abilities and make you remember things quicker. If there is a reason not to get a DS I haven't found it.
