The DS is the first of all of the DS systems. It’s very bulky and rough. I have not played it myself, but my some of my friends own the DS, and it is very durable. On of my friends dropped his DS out of a moving car and it still works. The DS can play the older Gameboy and Gameboy Advance games.
The DS Lite is the second model of the DS. It is less durable but smaller, smoother, and easier to carry around. It can also play Gameboy and Gameboy Advance games. I used to own one but it broke when someone bumped into me and I dropped it.
The DSi is the third model of DS and the one that I currently own. It is sleeker and even more portable than the past models. It has some cool features that the older models did not have. For instance, it can access the internet and has a flip book function and more fun things; however, the DSi cannot play Gameboy or Gameboy Advance games.
The DSi XL is the latest model of the DS and is basically the same as the DSi except that it is much larger and more durable. I am not sure if it has any additional functions because I have not used one and none of my friends have either.
The 3DS is the future model of DS which is scheduled to be released on March 27, 2011. It will have 3D graphics without the use of glasses, as well as a joy-stick.
I know what I’m putting on my wish list!
