12 more days.. discuss.
I'm too busy with my GBA still!
Several games look great though.
Question for anyone that knows... can you play GBA games with a link cable and DS+GBA? I have a GBA and was thinking about getting a DS so my wife and I can both play via system link... possible?
I was looking forward to the DS Lite, but then I realized that there are very few RPGs released so far for the DS, and there are a LOT of them for the GBA. I realize that you can play GBA games on a DS/DS Lite, but why? Is there any benefit, other than the adjustable backlight? I'm just asking, I really don't know much about these things.
lol, I just got mine today... The screens are amazing compared to the old model. The only bad thing I noticed is that the upper frame feels a bit cheap, but other than that no complaints here!
GB Micro.. thats a nice little system, some Mario Kirby and Tetris and your golden
Does anyone know the answer to this? This is the only thing keeping me from running out to pre-order the lite today!
No. There is no link cable port on the DS... there's only wireless for connectivity and a port for the charger. There may also be wireless (most likely WiFi) connectivity to the Wii when it is released.
longer for us UK folk, BUT WE GET THE BLACK ONE ner ner
If that is true then the next question is: can you play system-link GBA games over WiFi with 2 DS systems?
I'm not sure about that one. I think it's a great idea, but I don't know if that's possible. Sorry.
I too am not sure what you mean, either but I'm guessing no/yes/no. let me explain.
GBA game that is multiplayer that would use the modified USB/System link cable to another GBA system ... "Possibly" would work over WiFi ... as there are WiFi adapters for the GBA SP systems but I would estimate NO because those adapter TRICK the SP into thinking its using a Link Cable.
YES for WiFi to GCN IF there was a WiFi adapter to that; but for now Nada.
This is tuff information to find out I say just take a stab at it.
Where are you people finding news of the DS Lite coming to the US?
If this helps any, I dropped 3 different DS Lights today (1 on a very hard floor, the other 2 on a wooden floor multiple times) and nothing happened to any of them. Our handhelds are always made pretty sturdy. I've actually dropped the old DS (DS was open) about 5 feet from a hard tiled floor in a store and it didn't phase it.. sure couldn't do that with a psp lol..
Wow I can't believe it's only 12 days away! I already have the New Super Mario Bros. and I'm thinking about dishing out the cabbage for Animal Crossing and/or Mario Kart... but I think I will rock Mario Bros. for now
no the GBA doesn't have wi-fi like the DS has. The wireless adaptor is just that. It isn't true wi-fi like the DS.
IIRC it's just a radio transmitter/receiver. not 802.11x, bluetooth etc. just some real basic cut down wireless. wouldn't be surprised if it incorporated some kind of miniature gnat or similarly sized mini-beast to ferry data back and forth.
i plan on getting it on June 11. i might have to be late/miss a party(zap2's) just to get it. but we'll see.
Its out in Australia tomorrow However I just bought a Gameboy Micro, so I might wait a bit. Maybe I will get it when they release a game with the handheld
I'll be getting one along with new super mario bros. as well...can u believe i still haven't open my MP: hunters yet.
I'm in Australia... tomorrow!
It feels good for a change, doesn't it
I want pictures from my pals down under....don't care if they look the same...want pictures!
I agree, the Gameboy Micro is a very sleek machine. I got Drill Dozer today to hold me until the DS Lite come. That game is awesome btw I unloaded my regular Nintendo DS, Animal Crossing, Resident Evil DS and Zelda: Minish cap on ebay to fuel the Nintendo DS Lite.
and yes I am jelouse of the Uk's black DS!
I dumped my DS to my cousin for 50 bucks just so I can buy a lite. Just less than 2 more weeks and I'll be able to play all my DS games again in stunning color! Also copping New Super Mario brothers. And maybe a supercard.
That was a nice gesture
