"I have been a gamer for a while and......"4.5 starson by oldergamer
Pros: light, portable, decent graphics, great battery and fun games
Cons: limited multimedia uses at this time
Summary: I have been a gamer for a while and this gaming system has impressed me. I started gaming when atari was still popular and slowly worked my way up in systems since then. In the light of portable gaming my first portable hand held game was Sega's game gear.......which now rests in peace. (Although mine still works.) The DS is light and portable and although the graphics are not as good as PSP, the game play is great for all ages. But gaming is not all about graphics...it is also how long does something entertain...... with the long battery life entertainment can last up to 6 hours straight and still have enough power to play it the same lenght of time the next day. We buy these systems to play games, not to watch DVD's, use them for MP3s or even search the web......I have several things at home that performs these tasks. So why do I need them here? I am 29 and have a seven year old daugther and both of us can enjoy this DS Lite for a long time to come.
