Is DS Lite still the best or is DSi truely the new King? What do you think

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Is DS Lite still the best or is DSi truely the new King? What do you think

Even though the DSi supports WPA encryption on wireless routers to play games you still need use WEP, why anyone would use WEP to secure their wireless network is anyones guess, my guess being utter and complete stupidity.


WPA is the only reason I see to use a DSi over a DSL. It doesn't actually use it where you want though so DSi a wasted opportunity.

DSi> DSL, no matter how you look at it. You ca argue that the DSL has compatibility with GBA, but the DSi is waaaaaaaaaaaay better than DSL.

Yeah... because it offers a horrible selection of DSiWare and a crappy browser? Also, most of the flash card things don't support the DSi so that's keeping a lot of people from moving.

It has better & bigger screens, better lighting, you can surf the web, has flash card support, has DSiware, better sound quality.....

 

Isn't that enough?? We are talking about which is better as a console... DSi wins



I have yet to buy a DSi, but pretty much I have weighed all their strengths and 'negatives' and the DSi has everything the DSL has except its longer battery life. And the DSL comes up short on about 5-6 points, where the DSi has new features (bigger screens, added camera, DSiWare, storage capability, more ram/processing power for better games, etc).

Now of course for some people, these things seem excessive and pointless, but they might lead to bigger and better things down the road. Already it looks like a few decent DSiWare games are being made. And Nintendo has at least promised to utilize the stronger DSi hardware for future games. I'm willing to give the DSi a chance.



Six upcoming games you should look into:

 

  

i think psp is beter than both of them by a mile but i think DS Lite is better than DSi

Features is god, and although DSi has many new cool features it lacks the most important of all. Backwards compability with GBA



I LOVE ICELAND!

^PSP (hacked) doesnt lack backwards compatbility with GBA :p



The DSi is better and, as time progresses, will only continue to get better thanks to DSiware.



DSLite cobalt blue.



Pfft. DS PHAT ALL THE WAY!!!!

Hehe, I got my DS release week, and still haven't upgraded. Probably will get a DSi at some point when there's good DSi titles, and I largely finish playing GBA games. As it is now, I play GBA games on my DS about as much as I do DS games.

As for DSL vs DSi, it pretty much boils down to how much you play GBA games.
