The Nintendo DS Lite The Nintendo DS Lite (“NDSL”) was released in the UK in June 2006 as a replacement for the Nintendo DS (“NDS”). The NDSL is approximately 39% smaller and 21% lighter than its predecessor, however the signatory dual screen remains the same size, which is some feat. In order to...

Seeing as both the Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP came out at roughly the same time, and therefore seen as rival next-gen handheld consoles, I thought it would be appropriate to tell a little story. I watched a live instalment of a regularly broadcasted show on Gamespot.com recently. Now although...

Perfect for all ages and very easy to use

None for me

Whilst I would occasionally play games on my husband’s X Box, I had never had any burning desire to personally own any type of games console; that is until not long after the introduction of the Nintendo DS Lite. My gadget mad younger sister purchased her console within days of its’ release and...

“I Love it!”

published 02/06/2011

Easy to use, good range of games, sturdy

Can be addictive

I’ve had my Nintendo DS Lite for what seems like forever; but surely it can’t be that long ago that my husband so kindly bought it (along with Scrabble and Braintraining) so I could entertain myself whilst stuck in hospital pregnant with my second daughter. A few calculations later and I’ve...

“DS Delight”

published 26/09/2008

too many to list

none that ive seen so far

How I Discovered It I knew about the DS like most other people, through word of mouth. I never had the desire to buy one until the beginning of 2008 when for some strange reason I set my heart on getting one. I think it was because I had seen the adverts for brain training on the tv a lot at this...

I have had my DS Lite for very nearly 2 years. My partner bought it for my birthday and I remember he paid around £100 for it. Since then, the DS has come on a long way and the Lite edition is no longer available (unless buying preowned), but the new version - the DSi is available from Amazon...

“Super Gameboy advanced!”

published 21/07/2011

front runner in handheld games market

i haven't encountered any problems using the DS

This is quite a leap from the gameboy advance, a really huge leap with bells on it. The DS is a great little console, the portable handheld games market has peaked somewhat but it's the Nintendo DS that seems to still manage to come out on top. Nintendo has a long history of handheld games...

In 2006 Nintendo released their ‘Nintendo DS Lite’- a slimmer, more lightweight version of the original DS with quite a few design changes. It was a very popular addition to the DS console family, but at the time my sister and I stuck with the original handheld console. However in 2009 the...

I was very lucky this Christmas in fact Santa brought me everything I wanted and a few surprises. Whilst on a train a few months ago I saw a girl working her way through 'Brain Training' with a peculiar looking pen and started to become curious at the same time however I started to read stories...

It has some amazing extra features and games

There are none

The Nintendo DS is an extremely advanced gaming device, built for mainly young children's entertainment, but can include games such as Brain Training; a game to test your knowledge on a variety of different games which are really fun even for adults! It also has a touch screen (bottom) which is...

Handheld gaming has been something of a tumultuous ride since the 80s but while consoles come and go, Nintendo handhelds seem to take on a life of their own. In designing a handheld gaming platform, Nintendo always excel and never fail to show an inherent grasp of usability, practicality and...

Recently, my younger Sister purchased a Nintendo DS Lite for herself and she loves it. There are so many games out there so there is something for everyone so you'll never get bored with your purchase. I think the reason she likes it so much as she has the "pink" version which is nice and girlie...
