I love computer games and especially computer consoles. I know that the Sony playstation has reined master for years now in the console race but I have always loved Nintendo consoles. I really wanted the new Nintendo DS console but everybody refused to buy it me for Christmas and told me that it...

For over a year now I’ve been looking forward to 2005 not because of the fact I am now over a quarter of a century old, no, but because 2005 is the year that the next generation of portable gaming is unleashed. In the first few days of sales in the UK the DS shifted 87,000 units, setting a new...

For years the handheld market has been dominated by Nintendo, from the Game & Watch that started it all to the ever-popular Game Boy in 1986. It has seen off around nine competitors including the Game Gear and Neo Geo Pocket. While their home console market may be slipping (last year Nintendo...

You won't be able to put it down

My DS was the best present that I got for Christmas this year, its fabulous. In fact I cheated slightly as I was given it to test when it was 1st purchased and have been playing it constantly since. This has been a godsend to me over Christmas as I have been ill in bed for most of the Christmas...

"What really? No way!" That was my response to a few mates who were going on how they are going to buy Nintendo DS' instead of Sony's new handheld PSP, them being devoted Nintendo fans and all. All they rambled on about were the dual screens with the innovative touch sensitive screen, the...

The Nintendo DS is part of a new genertaion of hand held consoles alongside the likes of the PSP. However, whilst the PSP is merely a portable version of an already existing console, the Nintendo DS is nothing like anything else that has graced our shelves before! Even though it is a portable...

The DS (Dual Screen) is Nintendo's latest handheld console. It features 2 screens, one of which is touch sensitive, allowing new innovative gameplay opportunities. There are 2 ways in which you can use this screen, there is a stylus or a thumb strap. The thumb strap is used for example to move...

Now, picture the SEGA Dreamcast, a Y2K games console. With the built in modem, web browsing and email, superior audio and graphics, yet it was abandoned after release. Even SEGA no longer create games for them. The Nintendo 64 and Playstation won, the Playstation particually. Sony won the large...

The Nintendo DS has been released. We got one of these early from America. There has been a lot of discussion about whether the Nintendo DS or the Sony PSP is better. In my opinion I think the Nintendo DS is a much better console. The Nintendo DS is the next console after the Nintendo Game boy SP...
