postyoshi Nintendo DS Original Model:Forgotten Forever?



Don't you remember when the DS first came out? It looked kinda cheap, (in fact,when I first saw I thought it looked like poop but I got it anyway cause I knew I wanted to play the games anyway) but the stylus was very small and was at the back on the top of the DS. The capsule was pretty heavy, which made it less convenient while carrying it around in your pocket, feeling that heavy thing jiggle around deep down in your pocket... I'll tell ya, I used to have one of these and it really HURTS when you drop it on your toes! Well, never mind that. My original DS capsule was stolen a year ago, due to one of my sister's friends stealing it from me because he thought it was "rare". Well, they don't sell the original DS model in stores anymore, but I really think a DS lite is way more decent than the original DS model. It seems that the original DS has been forgotten, because no one seems to talk about it much anymore, and they even stopped selling it in stores. Well,the original DS was kinda crappy, anyway...My DS had a pretty good light at first, but then it became darker and crappier in like 3 m's. Tell me, if you owned the original DS capsule at one time, don't you think it was little crappy?? Just a little..?

I bought a pink one, but I loved it. I now have a pink DS Lite. Now that I look back at it, they do look kinda bad. Good thing they've improved the design.

Never!! My first DS was an original model, and I absolutely loved it. I love it more than the DS Lite, however not more than the DSi. The buttons were so much better, they clicked instead of pushed, which was so much cooler.

I vehemently defend the DS Classic.

I wouldn't say the DS was crappy. I was satisfied. I do like the lite more though.

I liked the buttons more especially the L and R buttons. Also those things take a helluva lot of force to break. After I bought a Crimson and black DS lite, we managed to play an entire inning of baseball with my DS until I hit a homer as it flew open, wacking the bottom screen and snapping the thing in two. Currently I can only find the bottom part though, if I locate the top I will post some pics.

Saru786 has a little shameless behaviour in the past

I never knew the original one had a different design until my friend showed me his. I have never had the original, and won't get it.

I still use the original, i only use it for games, so why waste my money on one that does the the exact same thing (for what i want it to do) when i don't need to.

I had an original DS. I immediately traded it in for the DS Lite.
I will do the same thing for the DSi. I hardly care for outdated handhelds.

i didn't have a problem with the design, but the buttons and the stylus were a little too small. but you can't miss what you never had, so nobody knew how crappy the original was until the DSLite came out.
