Gonna say 3DS just because a new SMT is releasing on it, and I'm a complete fanboy of that series.


Which game is SMT? I don't seem to be familiar which that name. Just a guess is it to do with persona?

DS right now, but I'm fairly certain the 3DS will surpass it in a few years.


If anything, I'd say it's already surpassed it in games.


I could easily name a list of 50+ great DS games right now off the top of my head, I'm sure you'd have trouble reaching 10 with the 3ds


Tales of the Abyss
Ocarina of Time 3D
Super Mario 3D Land
Star Fox 64 3D
Devil Survivor Overclocked
Fire Emblem Awakening
Kid Icarus Uprising
Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance
Soul Hackers
Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon
Etrian Odyssey IV
Rune Factory 4
Mario & Luigi Dream Team
Ace Attorney 5
Resident Evil Revelations
New Super Mario Bros 2
Mario Kart 7
Project x Zone
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
Bravery Default
Dragon Quest VII

Yeah, I clearly had trouble naming "10".

As of yet:

No Castlevania game.
No Phoenix Wright game.
No Mario & Luigi game.
Not many JRPGs, especially turn based JRPGs.


When the 3DS can surpass the NDS with those, then we can say the 3DS has surpassed it, not till then.

Maybe the new Yoshi's Island & M&L can help influence the 3DS to surpass the DS too.


No Castlevania

-Mirror of Fate is a Castlevania

No Phoenix Wright

-Ace Attorney 5 comes out this Fall

No Mario & Luigi

-Dream Team releases this August

Not many JRPGs

-Tales of the Abyss
-Devil Survivor Overclocked
-Bravery Default
-Mario & Luigi Dream Team
-Rune Factory 4
-Pokemon X/Y
-Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers
-Dragon Quest VII
-Fire Emblem: Awakening
-Etrian Odyssey IV
-Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance
-Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity

Backlit SP. Great library, now backlit. Even the GBC games looked better.

DS.

3DS looks promising but it still falls short of DS and GBA greatness. That's no surprise given that it's been out for a few years. If the next few years are as good as 2013 for the 3DS, I can see it surpassing the others.

Ds lite by far.

Definitely, with the worst d-pad in existence, and hinges that crack for no reason.


I owned a DS Lite for over 5 years, and mine never had cracked hinges. Though, that was my experience with it.


Sometimes I think I'm the only person who knows how to properly take care of a gaming system (although it looks like Subaru does as well). I've owned my DS Lite since 2007, and never had a problem with the d-pad or hinges cracking. But then I also notice that virtually every game or system I ever trade in at stores is in better condition than 99% of what's already in the "used" section, so obviously I just know how to take care of my games better than most people.
