The Nintendo DS Lite seems to be on our screens quite a lot lately with advert after advert and although it’s raining here in Wales UK it’s actually summer time. And in the summer, people are more likely to go out with their Nintendo DS Lite. But is it for everyone? What are its pros and cons?
If you own a DS Lite, you’ll probably know all of its features and specs and what you think is good and bad, but for others thinking of buying one, you’ll want to know the pros and cons beforehand.
The DS Lite’s unique design is very appealing to the general public, and that’s a good start along with the two screens, one of which is touchscreen. The DS uses cartridges with up to 1 GB of storage capacity, allowing plenty of storage space for your premium games. Battery power is superb and will last you up to ten hours. The price of the DS Lite at the time of writing is around £90 – £99 and most people would agree that’s not a bad price.
Now for the cons. Some people may find the PSP console a better design than the DS Lite, but that’s an opinion of course. The cartridges used in the DS Lite are more expensive than the discs used elsewhere and have no graphics quality advantage.
Although the graphics are not of the highest quality and the cartridges are a bit expensive, the DS Lite itself is not expensive with an excellent battery and superb games.
Most gamers prefer the Nintendo DS Lite over the PSP console because, as you can see, the advantages of the DS Lite certainly outweigh its disadvantages.
