Nintendo DS, the dual-screen handheld game console is developed and released by Nintendo. This device went on sale in North America on November of 2004 and now it sold more than 153,000,000 units worldwide! Nintendo DS is the best-selling handheld game console to date & the DS is second best-selling video game console of all time behind the PS2. FYI, the DS, is short for "dual screen." Time magazine awarded the Nintendo DS with a 'Gadget of the Week' award.
Nintendo DS has two TFT LCD touch screens, powered by two ARM processors, expandable 4 MB RAM, 256 MB of serial flash memory storage, rechargeable 850 mAh lithium-ion battery, a microphone and a built-in 802.11 Wireless Network Connection for wireless connectivity. It has a stylus & can browse the web via Wi-Fi. It's available in nine official colors: Titanium (silver & black), Electric Blue, Red, Graphite Black, Pure White, Turquoise Blue, Candy Pink, Mystic Pink and Cosmic Blue. The DS had three redesigns: Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo DSi, and the Nintendo DSi XL.
The Nintendo DS has a wide array of great and exciting games, but what is the cream of the crop? One would ask what is the Highest rated DS games ever? Especially those who are not yet familiar with this device. One possible answer is the New Super Mario Bros., the current best-selling Nintendo DS game (as of March 2013) because it sold more than 30,000,000 copies.
Others will not agree and they will answer Tetris DS, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, Chrono Trigger, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Advance Wars: Dual Strike, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Pokemon Black and White or Mario Kart DS.
My favorite are the following: Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, The World Ends With You, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time and any of the Pokemon series: Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, SoulSilver, HeartGold & Black and White.
