I need one for my boc dock.

I was just thinking the same thing!

Need support? Check out the Nintendo DSi support page and VERY good reviews (8.9 out of 10.0) over at gamestop.com

Note that skins and cases are easy to come by, so don’t be afraid to get that girly pink one. You can easily make it more manly. Or even more girly.

The Nintendo DS is a great little gaming device, but a few things to keep in mind here… First, the current DS is 3D, which means many newer titles will not run on this hardware. Second, Nintendo is about to release a new 3DSxl that has a faster processor, a larger 3D sweet spot and a few other goodies.
These are still a good a deal, many inexpensive titles sold for this version, it plays music, can play multiplayer if you have more than one, check Amazon for DSi titles or GameStop.

Wow only one in Bronze model…sold out in 6m ? Was it cheap or just a bait ?

I was too!

Awww Abidace, not everyone is out to swindle you!

We sell what we can get from our vendors. I would say that’s a popular color and there weren’t many available.

This is the same price as Gamestop’s “pick up” option on the Dsi and DSi XL (except for some reason GameStop has the red one $10 cheaper, ¿red is the loneliest color?). You can still “check availability” to see if there’s any available on your morning drive to save the $5 shipping.

Local multiplayer still works, but Nintendo shut down the Online Play for these.

There’s a lot of shovelware (terrible games either bearing titles of good games from other systems, or just existing and being terrible) for this system, but there’s also good titles out there easy to find: New Super Mario Bros., Docomodake BOING!, Meteos, Picross 3D, Two Legend of Zelda Games, Mario 64 DS. I’d recommend watching “Let’s Play” videos on YouTube before buying whatever game you see that looks good.

The progression of Nintendo systems is:

DS (DS XL) - plays GBA games and DS games
DSi (DSi XL) - Removed the GBA slot, plays only DS and DSi games (DSi games are primarily bought from an online store and downloaded, only two or three DSi exclusive cartridges were ever released.
3DS (XL) Plays 3DS and DS games and can download DSiWare from the eshop.
2DS - this is a cheaper, more durable version of the 3DS with no 3D, and a case your kids will have a harder time breaking, cuz there’s no hinge, it’s also huge.
New 3DS (XL) - currently only available in Japan. Rumors purport it coming to North America at some point in 2015, it adds some processing power and RAM, at least one game will be exclusive to it: Xenoblade.

Systems labeled “XL” are just like their “normal sized” counterparts, but with larger screens with the same resolution.
