I'm a mother who plays pokemon and plenty of other games, but I won't ever be too cheap to buy something for my daughter and then pretend someone stole it. I'll just save money and make sure we both have one to enjoy, and if that means I have to wait a while to get mine, so be it. I don't understand how a parent could do that and live with themselves. How do you look your child in the eye and tell them it is wrong to lie and steal if you yourself are a liar and a thief.
#35 Please, Don't Say stuff you dont know. Hell NO a DS is not a gameboy. I've worked at an electronics shop for 2 years and I've been a computer geek since i was a little kid. There is the original Gameboy, Gameboy Pocket, Gameboy Color,Gameboy Advance ,Gameboy Advance SP and Gameboy Micro. a DS is not a gameboy, never was and never will be. Just because it was launched by Nintendo it does not mean its a gameboy.
#43 Well first of all, the gameboy DID NOT support game cartridges till 2001. When the GameboyAdvance was released. The original gameboy was released in 1989 and it didn't have a slot to put games in it. So yeah It is true that ONLY the first two models of the Nintendo DS had a GameboyAdvance Slot. The latest Nintendo DS to support GameboyAdvance games was released in 2006. But that does NOT make it a Gameboy. This is called backward compatibility. There is a cable available to connect GameboyAdvance cartridges to your PC. It is just like the slot on the DS. But Does that make your PC a gameboy? I don't think so :)
The DS is its own line of handheld consoles. A DS is as much of a Gameboy as Gameboy is a Game & Watch. Also being able to play games of another thing doesn't make it that. My gamecube is not a Gameboy advance. The wii isn't a gamecube. Playing older systems is something companies do since people are more likely to buy it. it means there are more playable games for it from the start, even though most aren't made specifically for the new system, plus gives the option of selling the old system to afford the new one, causing an increase in sales.
77 I just meant they weren't the same one gosh. She was saying a Nintendo DS is a game boy cause it has the same slot for cartridges but I told tell that the GBA slot was introduced in 2001. I was saying the Ds didn't have the same one as the original gameboy.
Hmmm, that sucks, I would be angry if anyone even my parents take my stuffs without my permission, talk to ur mum and she still do that to u, time to move out
