Ok, my parents are asking me an important question, "For Xmas, do you want a wii, or a DSlite?"


Now, some of you may ask, "Didn&#39;t you get a job and got money for the DS?" Well, my parents made me save it ALL. Lets say I wasn&#39;t very happy. <_<



So, I can&#39;t really deside. So, can you guys help me pick?

Wii 100%. The DS doesn&#39;t match most video game systems.

.................................................. ...............................................how is this a hard decision? Who would put a DS over a Wii? I don&#39;t think anyone would....get the Wii for sure, 100% for sure.

Simple, Wii. It&#39;s brand new.

DSLite has some great stuff for it right now, and the wii will have more stuff later... it&#39;d almost make more sense to get a DSlite instead of a wii, but when it comes down to it, this is your parents buck, so you&#39;d be just as good using that to its fullest advantage. :3

lets break the price down to what you&#39;d need for both as a basic start:

Wii - &#036;250 + 50 for one game + 60 for another controller = &#036;360

DSlite - &#036;130 + &#036;35 for one game = &#036;165

I&#39;m betting you&#39;ll stumble into &#036;165 before you stumble into &#036;360, so you&#39;d best get a wii if its not you actually paying for it.

get a Wii, even though the DS has a wider game selection for now.

Fish here explained it the best; even though the DS&#39;s library is really big as of right now, the Wii&#39;s will expand in a matter of months. All by the end of March 31st 2007, we&#39;ll have Mario Galaxy, Twilight Princess, Wii Sports, Mario Strikers 2, Battalion Wars 2, Brain Age Wii, Metroid Prime 3, and many, many more. All of these games will no doubt be killer apps, and even though the DS has some great games, too (I&#39;m looking at you, YIDS), I would go with the Wii... Definitely.

I don&#39;t think the amount of games really matters. Even if the DS does have a lot more, there will be way more than enough to buy for the Wii (and they are new games, not old ones).

I&#39;d have to go with Wii.

One quick question...do you already have a normal DS? If you do, forget getting a Lite...otherwise, ignore thi slast sentence.


:P

Also, if you really have a serious job where you&#39;re making a couple hundred bucks (or even a grand), tell your parents it&#39;s your money and that you&#39;re saving most of it but you have the right to reward your hard working self with a little gift (aka DSL :P).

A Wii would work just fine with you then...

as tempting as the dslite is right now, you should probably get a wii, even though they&#39;re about even, the wii will be harder to get your little mittens on right now, whereas you could get a second hand dslite in good condition for about half the price of a normal one, or, if the person is desperate, 1/3rd. : D

Wii still... i dont think its going to change unless Yoshi&#39;s Island is better than Zelda. D:

Get the Wii&#33; You&#39;ll be missing out of Zelda&#33; You might say that you can get the Gamecube version but I heard that&#39;s better in the Wii version. You will also be missing out of Red Steel and Wii sports&#33;

It releases in December. The Gamecube version is apparently INFERIOR, according to ALL of the people that played the Wii version.
