DS Lite Price Drop
« on: June 06, 2011, 05:28:26 PM »
OK, so I don't have a DS, but I've been wanting one for a while.  I had been predicting that the DS Lite would likely get a price drop to $100 ($99.99 technically) and lo and behold, it happened this week.

So why would you want the DS Lite and not the DSi?  Simple.  The DS Lite is backwards-compatible with Game Boy Advance games, but the DSi is not.  Of course, the DSi had an additional online service, but most of the games/apps that came out on it generally weren't worth it.  The GBA back library, though, has many great games worth getting.

So why is this happening?  Quite simply, because the 3DS came out.  It's the next big thing and the DS is on the way out.  Don't expect this to be around forever (I think Nintendo will probably discontinue it altogether within a year or two).  The 3DS is the wave of the future, while the DS Lite is the past.  If you're looking to get it new, nows the time, before your only option becomes getting it used somewhere.
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

I actually have both. Haven't played either of them for a while though...

We don't have either, I had to force myself to move away from the PC and get the Wii last year.  Last console I had before that was an Atari 2600 when they came out... :o
A computer once beat me at chess, but as it turns out it was no match for me at kickboxing... ;)
