When all is said and done I reckon the DS has a legitimate claim to being one of the greatest consoles ever released. Surely, at the very least, it's a shoe-in for the best handheld console? At the moment Harvey Norman are trying to offload a great number of DSi XLs for $128 a pop. Seriously — you could do a lot worse. The backlog of games on this bad boy is stratospheric.
So if never got the chance to experience games like Trauma Center, Ace Attorney, Ghost Trick, Mario Kart DS, New Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Hotel Dusk, or any of the massive number of brilliant games released on the DS, this might be your chance.
Or you could totally just splash out on a 3DS instead. Totally your call.
