The public can shell out enough money to make this 20 million maker. Everyone loves the DS it has great support and another option for controls. Granted not every game uses the touch screen and some when they do still have button controlls. But with this system we are seeing alot of nice original IP's and some of the classics as well.
By-the-by for those who haven't tried it yet. Contact is a pretty fun one that just came out. Plus we can't forget that FFIII is coming out soon ^^
