Nintendo DS

Again, Nintendo is aiming for a broader audience with its DS handheld, and while the usual suspects are there for gaming (Mario, Pokemon), most of the buzz seems to be about more cerebral games. This year, they're pushing Brain Age as a way to train your mind.

The two screens also help the small console stand out. One is a touch-screen intended for use with a stylus, particularly handy in the more puzzle-oriented games.

As they did with GameBoy, the company is continuing to release newer, sleeker versions of the hardware, such as the DS Lite.

The basics:

  • 3" display screen, 3" touch screen
  • Backwards compatible with Game Boy Advance games
  • Adjustable backlighting
  • Built-in wi-fi for network gaming

Price: $129.99 at Best Buy
