Here's the deal. I love my DS, but I've had it sense 2004 and father time seems to have taken a bat to the touch screen. It still works, but not as well as I'd like it to. It feels slightly elevated from the actual touch sensor or whatever it is under the LCD display, and certain parts just feel scratchy. Also the color depth is really lacking compared to the DS Lite's, and in moderate to bright sunlight, it's can be just ball to try and see what's going on.
The reason for my question though, is that I've used a DS Lite before, and I just can't stand the D-Pad. It just doesn't work well enough for 3D games, and as much as I loves me some Mario 64 and Mario Kart DS, I's hard for me to accept that as the only other option. So, hows the D-Pad on the DSi? Is it more like the DS Phat's, or should I just save money and get a DS Lite anyway?
i personally own and still do all of the three ds's
i liked the dsi the most because of the bigger screen
