Got Oblivion for 35 bucks shortly after it game out, FEAR SE for 30, Call of Duty 2 for 25, and I could go on. Granted PC games are much more prone to drop in price over a short period of time than most other platforms. I have also built up my PS2, GC and Xbox collections quickly by searching for good deals. Perhaps I am just spoiled because of this and need to face the fact that the DS is a different ballgame and I just might not be able to buy a crapload of games at once like I have been able to with my other systems. But I haven't completely lost hope yet...

One thing to consider when comparing this platform to others is overall game cost is lower. For example, I bought The New Mario Brothers new for $29.99 compared to Burnout for the PSP where I paid $39.99.

Also, this system is backward compatible, so if you count the GBA games that it can play you have just opened up a whole new world of bargin bin gaming
