Okay, so I'm getting about £300 soon, and I WAS gonna get a new 2.4ghz 64 AMD Athlon.

Buuuuuut....

It occured to me that I could also get a DS, a 115 Euro Passkey (As seen here) and a couple of SD sticks, and not have to worry about buying another DS/GBA game again.

I was only thinking of getting the processor so I could play SFIII: 3rd Strike and various other 2D fighters at full speed on my Dreamcast emulator.

HOWEVER.

I'm worried that I'll get all the junk, DS, Passkey etc and end up with 1 item that I can't do anything with, and be stuck with it because it's fucking HARD to return to online stores.

Has anyone had any experience with these things before?
Has anyone heard bad/good things about these?
If so, could you lob a few pointers at me PLOX?

I mean, Oblivion doesn't interest me.


I'm not bothered by Half Life 2.

It's just about the ease of getting the games onto the passkey is all I'm worried about.

Edit: FUCK OW MY HEAD HURTS TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THIS DAMN DS THING.

Wait for DS Lite to roll out, the other DS prices should drop from there.

Also, as much as I would root for the computer, I don't see the point of spending the extra money on a 64 bit processor unless you also have a 64 bit OS and 64 bit applications.

Well ya' see, I don't wanna get ANOTHER Dreamcast because A. I'd have to get a controller converter because I really dislike the D-Pad on the DC controller, and B. They crap out really quickly (Especially if they're reading CD-R's all the time, which it would be because there's no way I'm forking out £30 for a copy of the game).


Also, I think the DS Lite won't come out for a while over here.


And I'm very, very impatient.


Also, turns out the DS, Passkey M3 combo, SD card and SD Reader/writer is cheap enough for me to have left over cash to get a...




...Arcade style dance platform....

That one. :]


From there.

£20 cheaper than where I WAS going to get it from.

Along with one of there - http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...835924-5351002

And one of these - http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...835924-5351002


And the DS is £89.99 with a game.


But I can't find the list of what games I can boot the passkey with. D;

Edit: Never mind, found it. <<

I was thinking about getting one of those for my DS. Would that be all I need to play ROMs on it?
