Krosigrim Posted July 22, 2010 Share Posted July 22, 2010 Ok so I've been working with the original DS. Screen is dark, and the battery only lasts for 3 hrs now. (lots of use) Well I know the 3DS is on its way, but I have been playing Dragon Quest IX nonstop. 110+ hrs in already. I got fed up. Battery always needing recharging. Screen so dim. 2 days ago I was in Gamestop and I talked myself out of buying one. Figured id find it online. Well... I decided to hell with waiting for the perfect opportunity and went in today. Lo and behold, there is a deal. 1 of 5 games free when you buy a new one. I picked up Spirit Tracks. Yea yea I could always get a Cycolo but to hell with it. I emulate so much... but when it comes to new shit I havent. I guess its my way of contributing to the market... making sure I support the makers. Thats what I tell myself anyway heh Anyway, My old DS was lacking in so many departments I didnt even know! Now I know how dim my screen was... And now I have screens that'r almost 100% bigger, some online store, demo's I guess... Built in brain age games, camera, audio recorder, music playback, internet browser. etc etc Now, the 3DS is coming soon enough... I am so hyped. This thing is stronger than the wii, and looks better than the PSP. Sidenote, my friend suggests the emulation scene for this will be great, considering the processing power of it. But of course I'll still buy my games. 3D without glasses... That alone makes me want to see it. The games... I must own this thing. I hope I dont get spoiled though, my XL screens are4.2 inches (106.68 mm) 3DS3.53 inches (89.66 mm - top) 3.02 inches (76.7 mm - bottom) But anyway, this DSI XL is great. I have big hands and it fits perfectly. Its as if they made this personally for me... as no one else seems to mind the small size of the lite/dsi. I think that was one of the things that helped me make the choice to not get an upgrade. Even though the 3DS is around the corner, I dont mind shelling out the doe for this. It was a long time coming. I like DQ IX so much I had to do something. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
