mostly to use action replay for me.

WHAT!? you can't use Action replay even for DS games!?


actually i thought this topic was about owning ds phat lite or dsi.
and was explaining why i had a dsi.
as far as dslite it's the gba slot and region free play why i keep it.

I stopped using it as a DS about 4 years ago.

It has been my GBA since I got it though.
This signature is lacking in beef.

GBA, slot 2 peripherals, Big N can't trash my Game Genie/Supercard/R4 with a "mandatory update", better battery life, just generally a much handier machine. My 3DS sits idle waiting for Monster Hunter, my DS Lite goes wherever I go as game machine and MP3 player.

And, I'm a bit of a collector, DSLs in crimson/black, custom Chinese Dragon, onyx, Guitar Hero silver/black, and coral.
I'm waiting for Bandai to release the WonderSwan/SwanCrystal II and blow both the Vita and the 3DS away.

Why would I keep my DS Lite if I have a 3DS?

Well, why not?

There are reasons, such as the GBA slot and no region block, but even if I didn't want it, I'd never sell it away. It wouldn't make any money.

I keep it just for my collection, and to transfer Pokemon. If I wanted to play Game Boy games, I'd use the GBA SP, the DS is a little too big for that.
Currently playing: Pokemon Black 2, Final Fantasy XIII-2 (360), Anarchy Reigns (PS3), The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, & New Super Mario Bros. U.

The GBA slot and the fact that I'd get next to nothing for it if I sold it.

When Fire Emblem 11 fan translation is done, I can actually play it on my DS through means I can't discuss.

Also the GBA slot and pokemon transfers.

For the R4 because I hate carrying all my games around.
