After a month of debating it, I broke down and bought a DS last night. I also purchased Mario 64. For those of you thinking about buying one, here's some info. 1) The gfx are FAR better than N64. Screenshots really don't do this thing justice. It looks extremely good. 2) The touch screen is pretty useful, especially in a FPS. The digital controls act like WASD, and the touch screen is like a mouse, with shoulder buttons firing. Sorry Sony, but the DS will own FPS. (Can't wait for James Bond online!) 3) The mini games make excellent use of two screens. The puzzle games are especially cool. Touch screen means games can be very different from anything else out there. 4) When you close the unit, it sleeps instantly. When you open it, you're right where you left off. This should be a marketing point for nintendo. If you have 3 minutes to kill, the DS will give you 3 minutes of gaming. The PSP will give you 10 seconds of booting, 30 seconds of loading, 10 seconds of intro CG, and 5 seconds of save time (leaving 2 minutes of gaming). 5) There are ZERO loading times. All in all, I give the system a 9/10. I have one dead pixel on the lower screen, but it's barely noticable. Sound is solid, gfx are better than expected, and FPS controls that don't suck are a HUGE plus. With confirmed (and free) online gaming via wifi on the way, this is a system you'd rather not miss. ****Since this will inevitably turn into a PSP vs. DS thread, let me say that the PSP looks very, very cool. But, they are different products. Comparing the two is futile. PSP wins in gfx, launch titles, sleekness factor. DS wins in portable gaming, battery life, and innovation. If like me, you can't decide between the two, buy a DS now, and wait for the PSP to drop in price. For $300 you can get a PSP and one game, or a DS with Mario 64, Warioware touched, Rayman DS, and Feel the Magic.
