The possibilities for future games are endless, and the two screens are so fun to watch. In the metroid cinematics, they try showing samus on one screen and her point of view shot on the other, which worked out great. The gameboy advance games you can play on it already offer a really great library for people like me who miss the old days of glorious sidescrollers and adventure-puzzle games like zelda and metroid.
It's like buying portable N64 that can comunicate with your neighbor's that also plays supernintendo games.
I am just hoping there will be a DS cartridge that loads software that can run the GBA games in multiplayer mode. I can't help but wonder why the hardware would be unable to at least play those games with other DS users, so I'm guessing there will be an answer to that.
The Nintendo DS explodes a variety of simple ideas and does it perfectly. There are two screens, one of them being a touchscreen and allows an endless array of new ideas. With such games like Mario Kart, Castlevania, Sonic Ruch, Tony Hawk, and others, now is a great time to buy a DS. It may not have all the gimicky features that the PSP does, but in the end, the DS is a winner and has a very bright future ahead of it. If you're wanting some good reviews on the system and it's games, look no further to www.ign.com which can give you a more in depth look at what the system can do. If you buy the system and an online compatible game... maybe i'll see you online! ;)
