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

It was a pretty cool system. Don't regret selling mine off though.

Amazing success story for Nintendo.

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...

You were supposed to be a third pillar. You ended up being a champ. I'll see you on the 4DS's Virtual Console. *waves*

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.

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.

yep, one hell of a good run. i doubt we'll see the likes of the ps2 and ds replicated any time soon.

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.

Please drop the DSi to $50 so I can buy some of the other colors I want, Nintendo.
