I'm a SSSSSOOOOOO excited! I was nearly to the point of drooling when reading the IGN hands on report! It looks stunning.

Did I mention I'm EXCITED? XD

[If you have come to post something like: "DS sux, PSP is better!" Please go away. You will have your post reported. Not sure how much good it'll do, but...meh...]

PictoChat will be awesome! Especially if you use it in conjunction with a hotspot!

The touch screen is my favorite feature ^^

I'm not incredibly crazy about the DS, although I will probably get one anyway. I'll probably only use it for the new Pokemon games, the Final Fantasy ports, and maybe for Zelda.

PSP on the other hand...

Anyway, yeah. I've been meaning to reserve a DS. But I'm too lazy to do so. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll get around to it *is cutting it close*

I was surprised that its coming out in a few weeks, I thought I wouldn't see it until early 2005 XD, I would get it if I had the money, which I don't cause I'm poor.

*Looks for old newpapers as a blanket*

I'll end up getting one for free, like I do with every console we stock.
Though I don't know when the Australian date is, and given our system still lists the price as $999,999.99 (IE, no idea), I think it could be a while.
Of coruse, also knowing how little Nintendo care about the Australian Market, I'd be happy if it never came out here.
The PSP is at least backed by a company who knows how to market, knows how to get develpers interest and knows how to pleasure the consumer.
Even based on that, and not even looking at the systems, it's pretty easy to see which system will have greater sales.

I believe the DS is a true breakthrough for handheld gaming. I'd gladly give up any of the PSP's features for two screens and touch screens!

Well I will refrain from posting about how much I anticipate the DS and how awsome I think it is, becuase I have a question. XD Does anyone know as of yet, how large the range will be to the Pictochat? Hopefully, it will be connecting to Wireless hotspots. But I doubt it. =/

If I have the money I might one, but it dosn't seem like it at the moment *hopes his rent gets lowered*. I'm still saving for a psp...whenever it comes out. But as long as the DS has pokemon and Zelda I'll have to get it...I'm not so wild about FF seeing as how the psp might have it as well.

She was just talking about how she felt about both of them, after she mentioned when she’d get one. Which is fine. Let’s not make it so we have to ban DS and PSP threads, that’d really prove our immaturity. People beg for them to be closed far too easily. -.-

The DS dousn't come out until the 21st, and already I'm seeing games that are being advertised and have a price too like Super Mario, and Madden XD.

You're such a biased person though XD [Noticed that she loved Sarah.] I just meant she should make a new thread if she wants to talk about the PSP.

Well we are like-minded people, seeing as how we can spend so much of every day together. However it was kinda rude to say it wasn’t welcome. =\ If any PSP discussion at all bothers you in this thread (And with these two, the other is almost always going to come up) then just politely ask. I dunno how many problems could have been solved on here if people had just asked politely.

However, let's not turn the topic into this. Keep discussing the DS, keep this post in mind, but don't reply to it.

My brohter was out with his friends the other day and they stopped by an EB Games or a GameStop (I can't remember which he told me...), but he said that they got to play the DS as it was on display. He said the system rocked and he is saving a lot of money to buy onewhen it comes out.

Today when me and my brother were at Fry's to buy a part ot fix our friend's computer, we saw some DS cartridges on sale before the DS even came out...we saw Spiderman 2, Super Mario, and Metroid Hunters...

Carlito-san
November 20th, 2004, 05:47 PM
yeah,i know.see,i went to pre-order it,and they are out for the 21st.i have to wait for the 29th.*sobs*

were they cartredges,or cards?if it is the 1st one,the're fake.

November 20th, 2004, 06:00 PM
The thing is I'm not sure what game I'm going to get. I kind of want Metroid but it would be the first Metroid game I got (I guess if you don't try something new you will never get anywhere XD).

How far I'll go for me DS tomorrow:

Tonight I'll be up to about 11-12ish, then wake up at 6:30, get ready, drive away at 7:30 *20 minute trip* to reach Target by ten-to-8:00 which is when it opens. Why would I want to hurry so much?

THE TARGET ONLY GOT 12 FREAK'N DS'S!

Hope there's less than 12 people before me...-_-


Oh...did I mention I'm sick? Tomorrow is going to be my best and worst day simoutanously. *~_~ Big spelling errors.*

Thanks.

And yea it does have a Rechargable Lithium Ion Battery (they are like the GBA SP).
And they run out so quick because they don't fully charge it (mine lasted about 2 - 3 hours before going red).

November 21st, 2004, 06:17 PM
I wish I had a DS right now...
my brother is saving money to buy one at Gamestop, and he will be trading in his old GBA to save like $50 off of it. Me and him are close enough that we can share one DS (that and we're too poor to afford two)

A funny thing is, knowing my parents, they're probably planning on buying one for my brother too, so we'll end up with two. XD

Kyosuke
November 21st, 2004, 06:52 PM
While I was with my sisters, I decided to go to Toys R' Us for the game department, because it was nearby, and there was a Nintendo DS that was availble for play so they let me play it. I got to see some of the features like Pictochat (there was even someone in a chatroom nearby XD), and played Metroid Prime: Hunters.

I want the DS even more after getting to play it, especially with the bottom touch screen, but I know thats going to be the closest I will get to one, until well over a price drop XD.

November 21st, 2004, 06:55 PM

Arcanine
November 21st, 2004, 06:57 PM
Yea the Pictochat is great, I haven't tested it in a chat yet (because my brother can't open his till Christmas) but I chatted with myself and it looks like it will be fun in a large chat (the best place is the mall XD).

November 21st, 2004, 07:35 PM
I like in the Pictochat how you can type the letters and also draw stuff too. There is a DS game or something about Pictochat and it might have more stuff on it (or something).

*Chikorita*
November 21st, 2004, 07:37 PM

^Me too. I also like how much faster it is to type with the stylus than with the D-pad like the chat in FR/LG.
Yea it's just like a keyboard (all the letters are in the same place too), so it's quicker to type then moving around with the D-Pad.
