It had a very impressive run. It's also my favorite handheld of all time! RIP DS, you did well...

That's a little sad. I'll hold on to my original DS and DSi with plenty of fondness.

I need a 3DS

End of an era. It really edges out the PSP for me as the best handheld gaming device invented.

DS lite was a masterpiece. DSi however was one of the few handheld revisions that I did not buy. No GBA port? Adding region locking? What a bunch of horrible decisions.

You were a great device, DS. Introduced me to one of the best series ever (Phoenix Wright) and got a lot of people into gaming. My little sister for example wouldnt have started playing games without you. I doubt your successor will ever be as good as you.

Was the first device I bought myself.

About time. Good system, but it was holding the 3DS back. Now more people can opt for the 3DS.

I still need to get 999 and DQ V...

G'night sweet prince. Completely smashed expectations in a way no system had done before or probably will do after.

I can't believe Nintendo isn't pushing to beat the PS2 "all-time" gaming system record though. Seems like it would take almost no effort. Small price drop, a couple million systems....boom done in one.

No one plays DS games online anymore it seems. Or you need a friend list. I can only find Mario Kart games consistently.
Why would you do that?

I remember the day it came out very vividly. It was a simpler time, a time when I was so excited for the Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt demo. I actually played it a couple weeks ago for fun... It's weird to think I was so impressed with full motion video and smooth 3D graphics.

Fantastic game console. Right up there with the PS2.

9 years, man. The contrast between it and the GBA is insane.

I played some DKR not too long ago with some other lonely shmuck. Haven't tried since.

From a literal joke in the industry after its reveal to the champion of the market and responsible for huge industry growth.

Ain't no one got time for lowering router security to play those games. What a shame though, I'd love to play some more Tetris DS.
