What is the difference between the Nintendo DS and DS Lite?

Nintendo, like many other tech giants, have worked diligently to give consumers updated technology which is more advanced than previous models. That’s why the DS Lite is smaller, thinner and lighter than the original DS. This new model was devised to make it more appealing to a variety of audiences - the sleek design boasts higher battery usage time, and has had several buttons relocated, including the position of the microphone for improved functionality. The screen also harbours four brightness settings, with the lowest brightness better than the standard screen of the original DS.

The Nintendo DS Lite is essentially an improved version of the Nintendo DS, with the same functionalities and gaming compatibilities. Nintendo have a range of other models, each with their own capacities. The Nintendo DSi has a larger display again, yet is slightly more compact and lightweight, containing a built-in camera and the ability to connect to wireless home Internet for portable browsing. For hardcore gamers, the 3DS gives the ability to play games in 3D without requiring glasses, while the 2DS has more of a tablet-like design similar to that of the Game Boy. The XL versions of each of these are larger in size, have a longer battery usage time and different software and input connections.

One of the newest additions to the Nintendo family is the Nintendo Switch Lite. Similar to other updates, this is a smaller and more lightweight version of the popular Nintendo Switch. It no longer has detachable joy-cons and can’t be docked into a TV, being designed specifically for play on the go. With an improved battery life, the Nintendo Switch Lite truly embodies portable play, ideal for use on holidays, road trips and friends’ houses.

What games can Nintendo DS Lite play?

The Nintendo DS Lite is compatible with regular Nintendo DS games, as well as Game Boy Advance games in single-player mode only. Due to the fact that DS Lite games have been designed for wireless play, they lack a cable port for connecting to multi-player systems and so are not compatible with Original Game Boy or Game Boy Color games.

The plethora of Nintendo DS Lite games means you’ll be spoilt for choice. There’s a genre for everyone with everything from action to puzzle, racing and sports. Within each category, you’ll find games that your kids and teens love, ones you can’t get enough of, and ones that even older generations won’t be able to put down. Popular games include New Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood and many more.
