Can't afford one yet, plain and simple. There's still so many GBA, GCN and PC games I'm interested in, plus with the upcoming release of the Wii, its almost too much for this starving college student to handle. But I will own a DS Lite one day, and you'll know it when u notice some mysterious person is able to defeat anyone he challenges in Mario Kart DS.
Its sounds like alot of people dont realize that the DS has a slot to play GBA games :(jonathan_rectorwell, it's not like any pictures of the DS that I've seen online or in media even show a GBA slot. And in my case, I couldn't even afford a used standard one... and just from seeing the store-display DS's there have been, people really abuse them poorly. :(
If I want to play bad ports of PS2 games I'll play my PSP...megagene
My gba sp was stolen/lost sometime ago (along with my precious harvest moon game) when I was on vacation and I felt I needed to replace it. I couldn't decide whether to rebuy an sp or go for a next gen handheld DS or PSP. I ruled out the PSP because it was a bit too pricey and I couldn't play any of the gba games that I already owned. the obvious choice was to go for a DS lite but I held back. The system just doesn't much appeal to me with its dual screen/touch screen stuff nor is there any game for it that really captures my interest. Not to offend or anything but it seems a bit too kiddyish as well.
So anyway, I ended up getting a Micro and I'm glad I did. Great portability and even though there is practically nothing new coming out for gba, there are plenty enough games out already for me to hunt down and play. Especially since I really enjoy turn-based rpgs as well as nostalgic games such as the Mario and Final Fantasy games (I still can't believe FF VI is now portable!!).
Right now im making my way through Tactics Ogre which I bought used for a very decent price. Great game!
I dont have a DS becau I dont want one! My Micro plays all the gamesI like and is super portable and good looking. The DS is ugly and looks like a womansmake-up case, and the few 3D games Ive seen on it look and play horrible. I whip out my PSP when its time to play awesome 3D games. The DS just falls in some stagnant middle ground and has no real place in the handheld market. Hey, its just my opinion, but Im just saying I will never buy one.
