This. GBA games look so beautiful running on the DS lite because of the superior color, brightness, contrast ect.
I honestly don't even use my GBA SP anymore....The colors look washed out and awful and the same goes for the contrast. I also don't like using it for gameboy games either as it just doesn't feel right, and there's no headphone output. So instead you have to buy this adapter that sticks out the top/back of the GBA SP which is an eyeswore. Then you have that huge GB cartridge sticking out the bottom. The whole experience feels like a mess, almost like something Sega created.

If I'm playing GB games, i wan't to play them on my sexy Purple GBC.....The downside is the magical lamp hovering over my head :p Yet on Youtube there are videos where people have actually moded their GameBoy Color's with Front Lights and the end result is great. But it looks like too much bloody work to get it done...

The backlit GBA SP looks great. I love it, but I'm aiming for a Gameboy Micro. The screen on THOSE look amazing.

I probably will. The two GBA games I have (Superstar Saga and Super Circuit) don't get much playtime anymore, and since DS games are backwards compatible, I'll do it. Not to mention the extra savings I'll get.

Had I a DS or DS Lite, I would keep it. Since I have a DSi, I'll be looking to trade it in for the 3DS, which replaces the DSi in every possible way imaginable. Luckily I didn't buy hardly any DSiWare. Of course I first need to be sure that the 3DS will do everything the DSi does. Camera, Web, Music with the lid closed, competent DS emulation, etc.

Nope. I have a lot of DSiWare on my DSi, and I'd rather keep that than give it away with my DSi. If the 3DS allows DSiWare transfer, I might sell or give away my DSi, but more likely it will find a place in my box of old handheld stuff and random junk.

I'm pretty okay.

Waveboy: I only get rid of the systems when the next one also runs all the same stuff, or I keep it so I really haven't lost any money as I've kept the games, got newer hardware that plays old and new. I get your point though as I see a lot of morons that see a system on the horizon, then go into Gamestop and get baked on like $1000 in games/system and end up with like $150-200 in credit from their amazing generosity of their scummy system.

If I can transfer my DSiWare, then yes. If I can't, then I won't even think about it because I have spent over $50 on the DSi Shop. Also, half the time I'm on my DSi I'm playing DSiWare games. Praying for a DSiWare trasfer method :)

If there's a good trade-in deal for then yeah I'll trade in my DSi. Otherwise, I'll probably sell it on Ebay for money towards the 3DS.

I might buy one down the road but I wont trade in my DS for it. I still have the original DS and the main reason is so I can play my GBA games. If I do trade my DS in it would be for a DS lite but to me the DS lite seems flimsy compared to the original DS.

@ McCoy

I understand what you mean, myself I like to wait a year when new hardware comes out, wait tell the price drops, and a decent library of games are out on the market. I'm broke most the time so I like to get things as cheaply as I can.

@Double Sunday.

Don't trade it your DSi unless you have to absolutely have a 3DS and can't afford to get one any other way. I used to trade in my stuff back in my younger days, and I regret every bit of it. If only I had every system, and every game I ever bought. Now I'm having a hard time finding stuff I once owned and also all the things I missed out on.

i cant really see myself playing my dsi since the 3ds will be backwards capatible but what about all the the games i downloaded. What would you do?

I'm not planning on trading my DS phat or DSi I plan on keeping all of them as a collector's, plus I have friends who don't have a DS so when they come we will have a DS party together. I would say keep your DSi and don't trade it, its a waste to trade cause your getting less money. That's my point of view.

Nicely writen, that's the best post I've read so far! That's the samething my brother does everytime something is released he goes and trades a system or more and he just perchassed the system.
