Looks like I need a new DS
« on: February 14, 2007, 07:25:26 pm »
Yeah it started monday when I lost both my styluses one fell out the back of the DS I dont know when or where so thats gone and I can't find myback up one. I can't find an origional DS stylus all the ones in store are fo rthe lite and wont fit in the back of my DS. no problem for now just stay away from stylus heavy games and use thumb when needed still works fine sort of.

Today though this morning I found something that really means the DS is practically no good at all. The L button broke I was playing Mario Kart super circuit at 1st and went to fire a red shell nothing it was like that moment during indepence day when the missle jammed. Tried again nothing after hitting the button about 20 more times finally it worked. Hurray but every so often it would stuff up again shells I'm dragging behind me would be released with out me letting go and other button presses stopped working. I've tried other games and found similar problems with the L button going to hell and always at crucial moments.

So looks like I might start shopping around for a DS lite.

My DS, while still functional, is showing signs of wear.

My favorite is how it does not detect the DS carts. I have to twist the DS and blow into it and blow on the cards too. It's like Nintendo all over again!

Well given the option i'd by a lite over the brick version seeing i take my Ds everywhere it be better to have to smaller one then throw in brighter screen and its all good. The annoying thing is I just spent over $2000 getting my car fixed so that already but a huge dint in my bank account I was hoping to not spend anything until at least Guitar hero 2 for 360 came out. Seeing how much I play DS that doesn't look to be the case.

My DS works fine.

It was just stolen. I'm still waiting for a new one from the insurance company.
Not a winner anymore.

A couple months ago some retard at school pored one of those "Sobe EnrrG Rush!111 WITH EXTR@ AWSUM LIME ESSENCE!!!" on my DS. So the buttons have been sticky. But I think I finally got most of it out.

But those Lites looks so cool...Oh well, I don't have the cash for one now anyways.

I went shopping yesterday got my self a DS lite it is so cool and actully fit's in so many more pockets and best yet the L button works. Actully even better is the screen I can't get over how much brighter it is. Now out of anyone who uses a DS on the train I wont be the only one sitting there with a the huge brick version.

the ds lite is great and all but I think I'll stick with my old ds I got on launch day (still in great condition :) )
Those who think anything is possible have never tried slamming a revolving door.

Well I finally broke down but for good reasons. My bro took the old DS with him so I went off and bought my own. I got a sleek onyx DS.

The DS version of the sims had storylines, so mabye Spore DS will have some crappy storylines you need to do. I wouldn't midn that though.

I really did like the old power button for the Brick DS. Not to mention my hand goes numb less with the brick.

But my Black DS really does look better. Slick and shiny. Take that PSP!

Looks like I'm getting a DS Lite... again... :P

When I bought it, the Right trigger had a dull feeling when you press it. I started playing MKDS on it and the button was not working. I had to find the right spot for it to work. I got fed up with it and called Nintendo for a replacement. I guess some people were right about the DS Lite having some manufacturing defects. Though I must say Nintendo has great customer service. ;D

Out of all the customer service centre's i have delt with Nintendo is probably the best i have delt with. they give you better advice than "er just try jiggling th cord".

I'll use this topic for my own needs now...

I'm looking to buy a DS, and was thinking of getting one used. Do you think I should get a DS fat, if I see a good deal, or should I stick with the light, or do you think it's better for me just to get it brand new?

The DS Classic, while getting points for being the DS Classic, is a stupid buy if you didn't have one from the get-go.

Get the DS Lite.

if you are getting a DS at this point in the game then really the only option is to go DS lite.

I can honestly say my Phat gives me hand cramps after about 3 hours but, is the Lite worth the cost difference?

If already have a DS i wouldn't worry too much unless you have like a Girlfriend you can fob your old DS onto in my case i was having problems with my old one so I had reason to upgrade. If your only problem is hand cramps it shouldn't be to much of a problem. In the end it's up to you.
