    Alright, I've had a DS Lite for several years now, this is my 2nd one and it's starting to show signs of wear...the screen's loose and floppy now, and the A Button stopped working a little while ago.

    I can still play it just fine as long as I use the touch screen, but I'm considering getting a new DS...instead of getting another lite, should I consider upgrading to the DSi...or DSi XL?

    Supposedly the new DS will be released late this year but if you feel like playing pick up a DS or DSL. At least that's what I would have done.

    What the hell did you do to your DS? :( 

    Since this is a matter of your DS actually being in poor shape and not merely impulsive hardware upgrading, perhaps you should consider that new Mario DSi bundle. Otherwise, maybe you could hold off until the 3DS is out.

    Only if you don't mind losing the GBA slot.

    I got a DSi for Christmas and it's actually a lot better than I thought it would be. It's nice to have a selection of quick games on the go in the thing instead of just 1 GBA and 1 DS game. The camera is actually surprisingly fun to play with as well if you have other people around with you. It's a lot more social than a DS lite in that way.

    I was hesitant on picking up a DSi, but I received one anyhow. It's a lot better than I expected. I recommend it.

    I have 3 Guitar hero games for my DS lite, which need that GBA slot.

    To me the removal of this slot is nigh on criminal. Grr.

    Let me tell you from someone that OWNS A DSI-XL and I have to say ITS WORTH IT cause me and the GF play it and she loves it alot more then me cause I never hardly get a chance to play it that much. Shes not really a gamer so thats saying something I think in how cool it is with a bigger screen. The DSI XL is WELL worth the scratch to lay down cause of the cool things this new DSI can do. Do what you want but the DSI XL is very cool and with a bigger screen, you can see much more on it. I am glad I waited till it was released to get it. I got mine about 2 days after it was released and for me, I am happy with this 1 so upgrading to the 3d version is a no thank you. I just spent 225 on this 1 with a game as well so I am not going anywhere for awhile on this one.
