Woohoo, the one I own.

The Nintendo DS system is definitely a break-through in hand-held gaming consoles; the innovative touch screen provides functions not available anywhere else, expanding both creativity and interactivity in general and frankly, it's just awesome. Play The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass if you want to experience the endless possibilities a touch screen has!

My only gripes are that the system (sans screen) scratches easily from normal use, and that it isn't backwards compatible to GB/GBC games but hey--can't have everything and it undoubtedly won't matter to the majority of consumers.

So dainty, so cute, so delicate, so pink! This little machine is my pride and joy. I think this is one of the best systems of all time. Great games for all ages, and great graphics. (Hurray for 2d!) I also hook up a media player to this and read books on it sometimes, very nice!!

Fun and pink!

The fact that this is the only pink anything I own doesn't really matter when I'm playing games. The DS has great battery life, innovative interface, and you can play Nintendo's good ol' fun-n-games titles. The game selection is definitely in keeping with classic Nintendo. There are a few serious games, but all make good use of the dual screens. This system also plays GBA games. The only problem with that lies within individual games (Going from Super Mario World on SNES, to the GBA with just the A and B, and then back to DS with X and Y also, it's a little awkward trying to hold the run button).

The closing lid keeps your screens nice while you're not playing; the extra stylus (though I have not had to use it yet) is handy. Games are very tiny and you could probably fit the whole line in one pocket (though I wouldn't recommend it).

All in all a very nice system.
