We've had the

Game Boy
Game Boy Pocket
Game Boy Light (Japan Only)

Game Boy Color

Game Boy Advance
Game Boy Advance SP
Game Boy Micro

Nintendo DS (also called fat or phat)
Nintendo DS Lite
Nintendo DSi
Nintendo DSi XL

I think that's all of them. Let me know if I missed any.

So how many versions of the 3DS do you think we'll get? My guess is 4. Will you wait for a redesign or buy it at launch?

I'd say it would go through the same rounds.

Addresses physical problems for first iteration - 3DS lite

Overhauls interface and adds some new features - 3DSi

Increases size - 3DSi XL

I will be buying the launch and 3DSi version, k thnx.

I'm guessing there will be at the very least 2 redesigns of the launch 3DS... and at least 1 that is unnecessary like the DSi XL and Game Boy Micro.

I'm going to buy the launch version and a late redesign (as long as it's as significantly different as, for example, the DS Phat was from the DSi).

Btw, wasn't the Gameboy Color another redesign of the Gameboy? The games didn't look any better...all it did was add color to them.

The gameboy color had it's own exclusive games (granted, some could be played both on the gameboy and gameboy color) so it should count as it's own game system.

That's why it's separated by a space from the other sets of game boys.

it was midly better then the GB was.. not by a huge margin but still enough. Sort of like DSL vs DSi.
