Nintendo DS price drop; portable gaming on the cheap!

1 min read

My new obsession...

From this Friday, you’ll be to join millions of other gamers who’ve embraced portable gaming, for a rather tempting price.

If you’ve not jumped on the Nintendo DS bandwagon, you’ll be able to do so from this weekend, without making your wallets cry.

Black, pink and white Nintendo DS Lites will be available from major retailers for just R999, with a selection of games on offer for just R129.

Here’s the list of games that’ll be available for a steal:

  • The Legend of Zelda : Spirit Tracks
  • Naruto Ninja Destiny
  • Naruto Ninja Destiny 2
  • Naruto Ninja Council 2
  • Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team
  • Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of time
  • Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness
  • Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
  • Advance Wars: Dark Conflict
  • Rhythm Paradise

Personally? I’d pick up Rhythm Paradise and Advance Wars; they’re great examples of how unique and diverse handheld gaming can be. The DS may already have a successor in the 3DS, but it’s home to some of my very favourite games. If you do happen to pick up a DS soon, make sure to get one of the Professor Layton titles as well. You can thank me later.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
