The Bottom Line With a slick new design, brighter screens, and a growing library of fun and innovative games, the Nintendo DS Lite is an impressive improvement over the original DS. While not all previous DS owners should upgrade, the DSi is an ambitious and solidly designed portable gaming system. While it lacks the multimedia and graphical finesse of the Sony PSP, the feature-packed Nintendo DS is a worthy successor to the Game Boy Advance--but the new and improved DS Lite is available for the same price. The Nintendo 3DS successfully offers a glasses-free 3D experience that needs to be seen to be believed. A weak start out of the gate has been all but forgotten thanks to a bevy of compelling releases on online downloadables since launch. While there's probably not enough to get owners of previous the PSP to upgrade, newcomers will find the PSP-3000 to be a solid portable gaming and multimedia device.
