Current-Nintendo DSBy Park Min-woo

 Nowadays, we can see many people carrying their own Nintendo DS game player.
The small Nintendo DS is easy to carry; and it is very popular.
For a long time Nintendo DS game players were used only by children, but nowadays, children and adults play this game machine.  Why is this game player so popular?
Nintendo DS is easy to carry, unlike the old Nintendo DS that was a liitle heavy.  And, we can still play some games that we played on the old Nintendo.
In the past, Sony made a newer version of “Play Station” PSP (Play Station Portable) that we can carry around.  When Sony made the PSP, it was incredibly amazing and very popular.  It cost a lot but people still bought it.  Now, Nintendo is cheaper than the PSP, which gives it a competitive edge.

  Let's look into the difference between Nintendo DS and the PSP.
The PSP can be compatible with a MP3 Player, movie player, and picture viewer, word processor viewer and a game player.  Also, the screen of PSP is better than the other machines.  But it is really expensive when compared to the others.
  However, Nintendo DS is made only for the game, that is why it is much cheaper than the PSP.  The special features of Nintendo DS are a touch screen, and speech recognizer.  Also, there are two screens to use for playing the game; this is a big difference from the others.

 

  Kim Seung-yong, a sophomore at Seokyung University, carries his Nintendo all the time.  He tells us about relationship between Nintendo Boom and PSP.  “I think the PSP has more functions, and is more useful.  However, the movie playing time is longer than the time that we are using the metro ride.  Therefore, we have to pause for a bit and play it again later, which is really annoying.  Most people use the PSP to play games, so we can enjoy the game for a bit and turn it off when you want to.  It is really simple stuff.  But if we really think about only a game player, Nintendo is easy to control.  That’s why most of people are buying Nintendo DS.”

  Nintendo is popular with everyone because of its light weight and its easiness to use.  For people, who spend most of their time on the subway, Nintendo DS is the best choice.  "Well, it is very useful on the subway.  But we can become addicted to this machine.  It should be used only for free time," Kim Seung-yong added this short warning.
