An Innovative Gaming System,
This review is from: Nintendo DS Lite Onyx Black (Accessory)
About a month ago, I decided to purchase my first game system since the origional NES. I got the DS, and I must say I love it. Somehow, they have found an idea that seemed to only be a gimmick (the dual screens) and turn it into something new and fun. So far, I have bought New Super Mario Brothers, Mario 64 DS, Metroid Prime: Hunters, Mario Kart, and a Japan-English dictionary program (my main justification for buying it in the first place). It is a great way to kill 5 min. or kill a few hours. Once you get used to using the stylus, it becomes very natural.
-Fun games for all skill levels
-Multiple people can play the same game off of one card
-Bright screen with good graphics
-long battery life
-It fits a little awkwardly in my hands
-You must buy a screen protector (the stylus can scratch up the lower screen pretty badly)
-In some games, the stylus blocks your view of different sections of the screen
-The Onyx Black looks cool, but it gets extremely smudged up with finger prints
The cons are nothing compared with the pros. I highly recommend it.

Hey, just saw your comment.
Are you in Japan? I got mine at Yamada-denki.
You may also get it at Mr. Max or Tsubasu.

I agree with your assessment. The only real cons are the physics. The screen scratches pretty easily and the onyx black does smudge a lot, and it isn't easy to wipe off with a dry cloth. It also leaves me a bit cramped in the hands. I got a screen protector, but unfortunately a hair got stuck right inside it, right near the center of the screen making a very obnoxious air bubble right there, lol. Ironic that the screen protector made it look worse...
