not interested in DS, hehe...

but anyway, last time i swear by Game 1, but after a few quotes and higher price, no freebies for preorder games, i am switching to Seow Choon for no nonsense type of business... and they have membership and discounts, u wan can use my card, or u go get something and spend enuff to get it, den offset your next purchase.

Er I actually not sure about the old ones but have seen the DS lite and it sure is cool.
I was told the price is about the same. Anyway I am blur about games, the enquiry is because my son bugs me for one.

If you can afford to wait, wait for the DS Lite. The screen is much bigger, and the weight is way lighter, with a better stylus (heavier and less cheap looking than the DS one). The only problem will be that gba cartridge will jut out somewhat... not a big problem if you're not planning to play GBA games on it.

Really, don't get the DS, now that the DS Lite is announced/ sold in Japan. My friends and I were all complaining like hell how difficult it is to hold and play the DS prolonged, because of the weight and size; and also how stupid that cheap piece of plastic they called the "stylus" work.

Think of DS lite as GBA SP and DS as GBA. The look is much better in the newer generation, as well as the size of the screen, the sound produced and the back-lighting...

i got PS2 already..alot of games are kinda of port of something similar in PS. i find some of the games in DS rather creative and interesting in terms of game play...

but if it is at $400 than it is not that attractive but the current price of 269 and psp 450+ DS seem a more afforable package
