    It's definitely nicer than the old one, pretty much exactly what I was expecting. As I said in another thread, they were limited with the design due to the nature of the twin screens.

    I'll defantly be selling mine and getting the new one, Ive started to get cramps playing on my DS which is just plain annoying and playing StreetFighter Alpha 3 which needs constant access to the triggers could be much improved.

    It's nice looking but I won't be replacing, never quite seen the appeal in replacing things just for a redesigned look.

    Very nice. Looks like the old game watch things Nintendo used to do, like Squish and Mario Bros.

    Smaller? White? Excellent! That's enough to sucker in a lot of people, myself included.

    I may get one if I can sell my current DS on without taking too much of a loss, I've only just bought it!

    I'm probably the only person that loves the retro styling of the original! New one looks nice but I wont be changing.

    I used to have one of those flip open donkey kongs and believe me they were more the size and weight of the original DS!

    I've still got a few of the game watches. Got a boxed 'Squish', a Mario Bros. and a Donkey Kong Jr.

    They're worth a bit of dough nowadays apparently.

    Looks pretty much exactly the same to me. I was expecting something that looked new and stylish. This appears to just be a bit smaller and white.
