Nintendo DS Lite Questions

Ok - my 6 yr old daughter who's pretty mature for her age has been asking for one for Xmas for 2 months. I figured it would go away but no....

I know squat about DS. I looked at the games and really can't figure out what she would be capable of playing... My step son has one at his Dad's house, but he only has 1 game so far, so he never plays it. I think it's over his head? He'd rather fool with my XBox.

Anyone with younger kids in here that has one of these? I don't want to spend $129 for a unit and $30 a game for something she'll never use.

I know Gameboy Advance has little cartoon & movie cartridges she could watch. I think that's more up her ally but she turns her nose up at it like I told her to eat her spinach.

DS- is aimed at younger groups of kids, you wont see many rated M games on it. Nintendo makes games that everyone can play. If you dont want your kid involved in some game that may corrupt their mind then get a DS.

PSP- Is a mixture of both violent games and non-violent. Graphics are about the same as the PS2 graphics. Online wireless play, music downloads, game downloads, etc.

Xbox game system has alot of violent games. Its aimed more for an adult crowd, yeah they have a few childrens games but mainly its meant for online and rated T and M games.

Personally id choose psp or xbox anytime of DS Lite but thats me. I been gaming since 4 and never been corrupted. If you are in need of some serious help about games.. go to IGN.com or Gamespot.com. they talk about games there and the systems itself.

Also the nice thing about DS, is that it has a dual screen and its touch screen. So it makes the player more interactive with the system then any other handheld. The bad thing about Gameboy Advance, is that its on the way of the outscene in handheld. Less games will be being made for this particular handheld system. Theres still a huge selection to choose from but just letting you know.

Thanks for the input!

I printed Buddha's Best Buy coupon. I might head over there later and check them out in person.

I used to be a hard core gamer on my PC back in the day. 1st games I ever got addicted to were Doom & Duke Nukem. After that I became obsessed with Half Life & the Quake series. 1st person shooters all the way

Since the kids & job though my gaming has fallen way off. I have Counterstrike and Doom3 for my PC. I think I've played both about 3 times in 2 years... =( Halo 1 & 2 on the XBox still see a little action though when the fiancee is out of town & the kids are in bed!

Nope =( None!

They were everywhere 3 weeks ago. I took it for granted they'd be around.

I'm gonna do some more looking today. If I find somewhere, I'll post it up asap!

best bet is to go to ebgames.com or gamestop.com and use the store locator to get all the numbers of the stores around you. Call them and they will tell you if they have them in stock or not

Ha ha! That's what I've been doing. Crazy. I found a couple of black, Blue & white ones... but no pink yet. I've called about 35 stores. No exaggeration. Everyone says sold them over the weekend :p Ugh!

I also tried Sears, Walmart, J&R, Circuit City, Amazon, Buy.com, Best Buy, Target etc.

Anyone with novel ideas...

Circuit City gets shipments on Wed and Sat I believe... usually around 11am or even earlier. Give them a call..

Bestbuy is tues and some other day... Get in touch with local retail stores and find out their shipment dates it will help you out.
