$169.99 for it?

No thanks,I'd rather get a regular Ds Lite+A game or two for that price.

When I found this I was like 170,000%!?! 0_0!!!
Holy Sh!t.
Nintendo is printing money.

Do you all think that the DS/PSP should be included in the console wars?
Or do you think that there should be a separate "hand held console war"?

I hate how that site has every other word in their articles as referal links. Cheap.

Snake Raiser3217d ago

Ya, it is annoying to read

That's because they can't think for themselves. Half of there news stories are from the Amazon.com Top Sellers List. They're not important enough to get REAL sales numbers

At mirror: Hey! I was just asking peoples opinions.
@ colbert: true enough. I guess this gen it does not really matter.

There use to be handheld wars until the DS started getting too much shovelware and the PSP had no games to offer.Around 2006 is the point in which the handheld wars stopped.Not to mention Sony kept supporting the PS2 instead of the PSP.

The DS came, and massacred the PSP.

The PSP pretty much got raped by the DS. I think the war was over a long time ago. Fire Emblem Shadow Sword on DS is amazing. I liked Jean D'Arc on PSP though.

Another Example where "Powerful Hardware + Graphics" doesn't always lead to #1 success.

Nintendo been in the handheld market much longer and have very strong footings..

Nice to know you're all for "peace" amongst people.

Are there even any games out in the US that take advantage of the DSi's features?

Can't wait for DSi to turn up in EU (UK) can't wait for people to trade in their old DSes and get a cheap one. Finally, I'll get myself Point Blank DS and Drawn To Life.

Snake Raiser3217d ago

Not really, these are nintendo fanboys who know no other option

Well DQIX has a download shop which I think will only work on the DSi so there's that.
