DS is also known as DS Phat, is the oldest one. It's the worst of them all. DS Lite is the best imo. Much, much better than the DS Phat. Better battery life, lighter and smaller, better screen. As for the DSi, useless and overpriced in my opinion. There are nothing really DSi specific out there. The DSi has a better menu, a DS store, but not worth the price.

Visit GBAtemp.net -> Portal for more info on NDS and related stuff.

I have a NDSL Guitar Hero special edition that I bought last week from Toys R Us. I'm deciding whether to get rid of it or not since I got a PSP, and my sister has a DS Lite. If interested, I could possibly sell it to you.

Here's a good review of the DSi and it's new features.

Heh heh ya at 7 I think a DS is plenty. I have DS Lite and am very happy with it. I even play CoD World at War on it lol. And the gameplay is surprisingly good!
