I Finally Bought a Nintendo DS!

I was really unimpressed when I first saw these at the beginning of 2005. Side by side with the Sony PSP, there was no contest and I imported a Japanese PSP in Feb 2005. The original DS was so ugly – it looked like it had been designed in the dark. Add to that the lower specs. compared to the PSP and I really couldn’t see myself buying one. Then along came the DS Lite.

But it’s not just about design. Yes the Lite looks great now, it’s smaller and the screen is brighter too but more to the point – it’s the games that make it worthwhile buying. No Mario/Metroid/Pokemon for the PSP!

So I was faced with a choice – buy these games for my old Gameboy Advance SP – or go out and buy the DS Lite. Well I took the plunge and I’m now the proud owner of a DS Lite.
