The more I mess around with Nate's Nintendo DS system, the more impressed I am with the technology. We bought this thing last year for about $100 on eBay and I keep finding new, amazing things that it can do. It has two high-res screens and wireless capabilities. You can play multi-player games over the internet via a home wireless connection or multiple people can play a game locally as long as one person owns the game. People have written browsers and software to allow you to watch movies that you put on a Compact Flash card. I just ran across this new service where Nintendo has setup wireless download stations at different stores. You can go into the store, download demo games for free, and they rotate the games periodically. For the money, I think this thing smokes the PSP.

Yes, and Nintendo Prime Hunters linked up with multiple players may be one of the greatest games of all time.

Why am I thinking that Dave is playing with the Nintendo more than Nate?
