Is anybody stoked about this? It's a giant DS! I shouldn't be maybe, but I am. It looks really great and makes me glad I didn't buy a DSi or PSP. It will play all your old DS games and uses DSi's internet downloadable games as well. It also has a longer battery life! Sign me up.

How much does it cost? It would have to be pretty cheap for me to get excited about it.

It's $189. However they are offering it for $129 when you trade in your original DS. I am now Swiss.

Your now Swiss... does that mean you've gotten into laundering Nazi-looted art?

I would be interested but I've got my iphone. I know it's not a real gaming device, but it's got enough on it to make time go by faster on any trip. In the end, I just don't game enough on the road to warrant a seperate device just Mario up my world.

After deliberation. I thought, 'I already own one of these it just isn't on the internet and has a smaller screen.' Does it warrant $130 or more to pick up at launch, or is it a wait for prices to go down/holiday/birthday gift? I think the latter.

Good decision. Seems like a bit of a waste.

Seems like a poor marketing decision what with the recent vague announcement of something called the Nintendo 3DS due out in 2011. It's like Gameboy Micro. You get all hyped and buy it, then the next thing comes out so soon, and you feel cheated.

I'm with UndeadDog here. Wait for this mysterious 3DS. Its due out in Japan by March 2011 (which probably means holiday this year), which means we'll probably see it one year after that. You don't need a bigger screen on your DS that bad, do you buddy?

I do this all the time and never actually follow-through. When the PSP Go came out I got all excited about this wave of the future. Didn't buy it and am better off for it. That thing has turned out to be a turd it seems.
