The Nintendo Dual Screen (DS) games console could be considered to be a feminine console compared to the macho Sony PSP. It is highly popular amongst children of junior school age (7 and up) but is also popular amongst older youth and young adults. The Nintendo DS is a portable console which is quite different from the earlier consoles made by Nintendo (the Game Cube and Game Boy); a handheld console similar in size to the original Game Boy but with dual colour screens and quality graphics Judi Slot .
The DS is small, hinged along the centre. When flipped open, there is an upper and a lower screen which can be tilted at a variety of angles to suit the light conditions or personal preference. Both screens are 6cm x 4.5cm in size. The controls are unique compared with other Nintendo consoles. A touch screen stylus allows you to move around by touching the lower screen with a thin stick (stylus), which can be stored securely within a special slot near the hinge of the DS. There are also control pads to allow you to move around if you prefer this method.
The console is small enough to fit into a largish pocket and feels solid and well made. Rough dimensions are 15cm wide x 8cm long x 3cm thick. However, one drop on a hard surface could seriously damage the DS so a game case is very useful for carrying the DS when not in use. The DS does however come with a wrist strap. A DS carrying case is a good idea for the safe storage of small game discs.
