Product Description
With impressive 3D rendered graphics, Nintendo DS delivers portable games for fans of any genre. Plus, you can play all your favorite Game Boy Advance games in a single-player mode. With Nintendo DS, dual screens and touch-screen technology allow you to interact with games like never before. Wireless communication allows you to experience real-time multiplayer game play, while built-in PictoChat software gives you the power to draw, write and send messages wirelessly. Nintendo DS revolutionizes the way games are played. Two LCD screens offer one of the most groundbreaking game play advances ever developed. Imagine the possibilities. In a racing game, you might see your own vehicle's perspective on one screen and an overall track view on the other. Soon, games could be created allowing you to play games on one screen while sending text messages on the other. The lower screen offers something never before provided by any dedicated game device: touch-screen capabilities. You no longer have to rely on just buttons to move your character or shift perspectives. Navigate menus or access inventory items simply by touching the screen with a stylus or fingertip. The possibilities are limited only by developers' imaginations. The touch screen features a tougher film cover for durability, and the included stylus is stored in the back of the unit. A built-in microphone port means that with Nintendo DS, you only need to tell your games what to do. Developers could create games, which identify everything from voice commands to hand clapping. Imagine moving your characters simply by telling them which way to go! Communication-based games could use the microphone and you can chat with others over a local network, or even the Internet in the future. The Nintendo DS microphone gives you even more ways to interact with your favorite games. Nintendo DS sound capabilities allow for greatly expanded use of voices and music, and a richer, more immersive game experience. Stereo speakers allow for virtual surround sound and a plug for headphones transmits stereo sound. Hear something in your left headphone? Audio clues can give you advance warning that an enemy is approaching or that a hidden secret is nearby. Sound can be one of the most immersive components of any video game, and Nintendo DS delivers big sound in a small package.

Possibly the best handheld console of all time

Created: 18/06/10
Most people have heard of the Nintendo DS its versatility has made it popular with all ages. From kids playing Mario Kart to pensioners playing Brain Training and Suduko. This original DS is slightly larger and heavier than the newer DS Lite and DSi which some people prefer as it makes it easier to hold.

The screens are very clear - the bottom screen is the touch screen and the top screen is a normal screen. There is a touch screen stylus stored and accessible from the right hand side of the console. The console has built in wireless capability and if someone else has another DS you can open the "picto chat" software built into the console and create a chat room. Then you can type chat or write messages that are sent wirelessly to each other (kids will find it great fun sending each other silly messages). You can also link up and play against each other in compatible games. Also it can connect to the internet for certain games (compatible wireless router or wireless adapter required).

It also has a built in microphone which some games use and has a stereo headphone socket to save you disturbing everyone in the room!

The wide variety of games and accessories available for the console are what make it great for me. Some of the accessories include:

Guitar Hero Grip - for Guitar Hero and Band Hero games - I find these great fun and are good for a break from "regular" games.

Ds Browser Pack - this is a cartridge and memory expansion that will let you browse the internet on your DS!

Also the library of games available is very impressive from simple classic games like Scrabble, Monopoly and Battleships to great action games like Mario Kart and Pinball. It will also play the older Gameboy Advance games (they plug in the front). So you dont have to bin your older games.

It would be hard for someone NOT to like the DS as it is so appealing and you are bound to find something you like. You can even get Language Tutors and 100 Classic Books to read on it.

With the vast selection of colours available too - my advice is pick your favourite colour and buy one!

Also a quick note on "fake ds consoles" - there is no such thing. What you will find is some consoles from the Far East (normally sold with a selection of Gameboy advance games) are refurbished units. Refurbs will have had the cases changed to new cases (so they look shiney and brand new) and the cases wont be the same quality as the original Nintendo case - so may feel cheaper and / or be more fragile. They wont have any of the original serial codes, markings etc either. They may also have a cheaper third party power adapter - like all cheaper power adapter these can be dangerous if they fail or short. So just be aware of what you are buying - nothing necessarily wrong with them so long as they work but just be aware that what is inside the case might not be brand new.

Thanks for reading!

I bought this for my 7 yr old. Hours of fun for little and big kids alike. battery lasts a good four hours of solid play, although i don,t recommend being on this for four hours solid! product itself is easy to use and is not heavy or bulky, is easy to use, buttons are great for small fingers and easy to turn on and off. Charging time is good too, takes about 4 hrs to fully charge. this is a solid sturdy item which is great if you have a couple of kids who all want to use it at the same time! The hinge on this model seems quite strong as well as I know some ds models are prone to breakage around the hinge area.
In all if you can get a second hand one in good condition, then its worth it, keeps my two boys quiet for ages (and daddy too!)

Buying a second hand Nintendo DS (original)

Created: 05/09/10
Great little device - plays all my Game Boy advance Games and Nintendo DS Games, Its a nice size and sits comfortably in my hand - would gladly have this over a DS lite, and would not pay the price for the new DSi
Only thing to worry about is with buying second hand, that the buttons become slow to respond with, but they are still very much functional.
All in all a great little thing at a very low price to play some of your favourite games with full enjoyment!
