I won't be getting it unless my uncle gives me one. Most of my stuff is given or stolen from my uncle, lol

Ahh, the good old thread. Anyways, I intend to get it along with the PSP, since, well…I’m spoiled and all. Since it comes out this fall (right?) I’ll have my parents get me one, at least before I move. XP *giggle*

My parents never let me get a Gameboy, but since I'm almost finished school now my mum said I can get a DS when it comes out in Australia next year. But she wants me to wait for a sale, and it's like "when it gets to the price she wants, the next version will be out!" o_O I have a weird mum.

I'll no doubt get given one from work.
But I doubt I'll even open it >_> cause gimmicky machines don't do anything for me.
Though good for Abby, will give her something to play on the flight.

There are 3 confirmed Pokemon titles for DS already. Pokemon Dash - some sort of racing game, and the details are unknown about Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl, but this could be the 4th generation of Pokemon games

Will those game be like ruby/sapphire/fire red/leaf green ect, ect.??


Does any one have a screen shot of a DS?
And does any on know about how much they will when they are first released?

All three of which could also be handled on the DS.

I doubt that'll happen anyway.

October 9th, 2004, 04:18 AM
Yes, of course they could be handled by a system that's based on an arcitecture that was so bad it's graphics looked like they were smeered with KY Jelly.

The DS could easily handle FFVII/VIII/IX graphics. Whether that was sarcasm or not, I don't actually see the point you were trying to make. Expliquez?

I can't believe there's only going to be ten launch games. None of them particularly stand out, so what am I supposed to buy??? The GT one maybe, but 64x4 looks OK.

Sorry but even if it could handle the graphics, it wouldn't be any longer than a 10 minute game.

The DS cart can only hold less than 1/10 of a UMD could.

And those games would barely make it to UMDs, much less DS cartridges. Unless you're expecting a 20 cartridge game XD

I'd rather have a new FF anyway, better than replaying a game.

Now make an actually rebuttle to my point that the NDS couldn't possible handle 1.8GB of FMV on one of it's carts. Make a point, don't try and be smart - because you're not, and learn to debate.

Exactly what I was thinking. The fact that you spelt a word wrong, has nothing to do with the point you were trying to make. It reminds me of the old debate threads where everyone would debate us using information that didn't apply to the subject. It's a waste of time to debate these kinds of people.

*nods* I will be getting the Nintendo DS. I have to. They're making Zelda for it, and I need no better reason than that.

I don't know where I stand with the DS. It's graphics appear to be better than the N64 (compare Super Mario 64 to Super Mario 64 DS), but then you see things like that new Mario Kart title where the backgrounds look like they were ripped straight from the original SuperNES game. O_o I don't care about who has better graphics, or specs or anything. I've always been playing Nintendo and only Nintendo, and it's going to continue that way for me. And that doesn't mean that I think the DS is better (I'm really upset that the second screen is only being used for maps at the moment), it's just the one I like better.

Plus, I need my Zelda fix.

I will definitely get a DS...probably a year after its release (I'm always that way with video games and accesories). I'm looking forward to games like: Super Mario 64x4, Metroid Prime Hunters, Pokemon Diamond/Pearl, and the online non-game features (pictochat etc.)

I'm getting a DS, for sure, Zelda or Metroid games are enough for me. I will be getting a PSP also, when it comes out.

Kyosuke
October 12th, 2004, 03:21 PM
Eventully I will get the DS, there would be no way I could afford it at launch, but maybe a few months later or something.

As for the PSP, it would be cool to have it as a portable, as well as a device for music etc.

Yo i got a imported DS from japan wit the metroid game and its pretty cool. theres like a top and bottom screen where its like your piloting the metroid ship. Im gettin a PSP too but i think itll b to complicated for me to read that manual since its more complex so ill get it in the US i think. I heard their going to release the FF7AC movie on the PSP so yayy i can see it anywhere i go hehehe!!!

I'm definatly gettin a DS. Im gonna try to get 1 Nov. 21 (I have ~ $230), but im gettin Prime 2 on Nov. 11, so i don't no if i can get a game for DS.

And DS OWNS PSP!!! The only thing i c that's better about PSP is that it has better graphics. On the DS, better graphics were sacrificed for touch-screen graphics, voice recignition, and a roughly 3,000 MILE WIRELESS NETWORK!!!!!!

Don't turn this into another debate. And even so, please use some real reasoning when you debate. By just listing the features of one of the devices(and not paying attention to the features of the other), your opinion is usually ignored by most members.

*rebuttal. -_-

I didn't want a debate. You were the one trying to be smart in the first place, which was why I felt the need to point out the fact that you'd misspelled two basic words in your post.

This one's probably worse though, since it doesn't actually fit together even though you've spelt everything correctly. Learn to string a coherent sentence together, and lose the condescending attitude. You've no right to patronise anyone.

Okay Dakota, this is where you learn to do your job properly.
Firstly, this thread was dead and buried until Lucifer decided to ressurect it to FLAME. Now, I'll explain to you the difference between debating and flaming.
Debating is where you attack the opinion, with your own opinion backed by fact.
Flaming is where you just insult the poster.
Now, guess which one is okay and which is against PC rules?
So now, Dakota, instead of coming in here to blast Brittany and I, and 'warn' other posts not to talk to us, when we haven't even posted here in like a month, how about you do your darn job and send a warning PM to lucifer for breaking rules?

I guess I can blame that on Norton, for giving me the innability to see Aves, Reps, and basically anything outside of text. So I never have any idea how old a thread is...ever...

But admittedly, you and Brit do in fact imply your opinions on any DS threads...look at all of em! Every DS thread in this entire forum has both of you, in there, somewhere, stabbing the DS and saying how much better the PSP is...

But also admittedly, the weight goes more on Brit's shoulders than yours by just a lil bit

Well if it wasn't true, surely we'd be proven wrong by a whole bunch of DS fans?
When I post about the DS, I post my honest opinion on the unit. I follow this up with facts usually, and past occurances, which help to back my opinion. This is all within the realms of PC rules, and it's quite irriating that when DS Fanboiz realise that we've just proved a point against their precious system, they beg for the thread to be closed. Grow up, boys.

When someone posts that don't like the DS, for any reason, don't whine about the fact that not everyone likes Nintendo's Retarded Stepson, instead, convince people why they want it. But remember, if they think something like the touchscreen is a gimmick, obviously using the touchscreen as a positive point isn't going to help your cause.

Your making a huge generalization...and your attacking the debater more than you are the system, which is not debating...it's ad hominem, which is 2 steps away from flaming.

http://members.cox.net/celes/refuted.jpgThis is what PC looks like without images. (Read as: Owned)

That point made, yeah there was no need to revive this. =\ Debates, if left to die down will do no good if flared up again. Not to mention there’s a bout a dozen other active topics on the matter.

As for the actual argument, it’s understandable. If you’re putting out well-backed opinions and getting nothing back, it’s understandable to get a little peeved. You don’t have to call the debate a flame cause of one mean comment about the system. People here are SO frail whining for a mod as soon as their wittle feelings have a boo-boo.

Also harping on one spelling error proves you've really got nothing else to defend your claims, and that ish sad for the DS.
