Nintendo's new handheld system. It features hit games like Animal Crossing DS, Meteos, and Mario Kart DS. The DS will have Wi-Fi internet service by the end of 2005. The internet service will be completley free and will feature games such as Tony Hawk (Working Title), Animal Crossing DS, and Mario Kart DS. The Nintendo DS is a unique system, and unlike the PSP (Which has better graphics, but is still just a shrunk PS2) it has touch screen control and a huge selection of great games. With a Play Yan you can play music and movies on the DS, plus the DS plays GBA games. The Nintendo DS supports many different types of Multiplayer. They are:
Wi-Fi Internet Multi-player:
Nintendo DS wireless download and play:
One DS hosts a game and the other people with a DS can join the game, even if they don't have the game itself. Most DS games do this. The wireless range of the Nintendo DS is 100 feet, but can be expanded with a "hotspot" that sends the wireless transmision through a more powerful source that can reach up to around 500 feet.
Nintendo DS Wireless Mulri-card play:
Same as Download and play, only each player must have their own game card inserted into the DS.
The Nintendo DS can withstand amazing damage, two mountain climbers even took their 10 Nintendo DSs to Mount. Everest, and the top of it at that, and none of them broke. They also took computers and other electronics, and most of them broke.
If you want a flashy system with great graphics, get a PSP, but if you want a system with great, unique games, plus internet, good graphics, and otherwise, get a DS.
