Why you Should buy a New Nintendo DS

Many people will suggest that you buy a used Nintendo DS to save money.  Even though that may sound like a good option, there are many reasons why you might want to reconsider and choose to buy a new DS.

The biggest reason that a new DS purchase is a smart one is that you have warranty on a new machine.  Since it is an electronic device, there are many things that can go wrong with it, and having a warranty gives you the peace of mind that if you do run into a problem, you didn't just flush your money down the toilet.

Older DS machines may have scratched screens, a battery that can't hold a proper charge and may of other operating defects.  There is nothing worse than seeing your child light up with joy when you give them a used DS only to find that it doesn't work properly.

Save yourself a headache and choose a new DS instead of a used one.
