    Yeah, just like it's unfair that R/S and E were on the GBA, adn that Colosseum and XD were on the GC.
    It's like an upgrade, dude. It's not unfair, it's the natural process of things. Can you imagine R/S and E being on the GBC? D:

    I agree with your statement because technology evolves and so do games

    It's not unfair. As Hegemon Locke Yggdrasill said, as technology moves, so do the games. Plus, your not going to be the only one that will be buying a DS to play D/P. I remember that when FR and LG came out, the GBA and SP each 100,000 more systems that month.

    This is a sound business practice. By putting such a popular franchise on a new system, Nintendo can reap the profits from the game and several DSes that will be purchased so that people can buy this game. Considering this is definitely a killer app for the DS or whatever system for which would have been developed, Nintendo's going to be far into the black with the release of D/P.

    You basically just answered the question that came up. It might be cheap, but lots of DS's will get bought and thats all that Nintendo cares about.

    Yeah, like, why don't they just make you play the game on a piece of paper??? Not everybody can afford a friggin' game console! And make the game a pencil. Not everybody can afford a video game, either.

    ...Yes, that's about how silly you're sounding.

    Chapter 63: Recovery
    The story of an ordinary boy on an impossible quest in a world that isn't as black and white as he always thought it was.
    (rough draft of the remaining chapters finished for NaNoWriMo; to be edited and posted)

    Morphic
    (completed, plus silly extras)
    A few scientists get drunk and start fiddling with gene splicing. Ten years later, they're taking care of eight half-Pokémon kids, each freakier than the next, while a religious fanatic plots to murder them all.

    I hate the DS.
    I'll be getting one for D/P unless they suck as much as RSE did.

    I suppose Nintendo knows what it's doing--bothersome, but they're effective.

    :/ I own a DS so you know it really doesn't affect me that greatly.
    I still prefer the GBA to it though. There's nothing amazingly revolutionary about the touch screen, in fact it makes gameplay several times more diffucult. -.- Try gripping that b*tch a*s stylus in the dead of winter. My joints hurt just thinking about it.
    It'd be nice to have an alternate version on GBA, similar to Mysterious Dungeon, if only for the sake of those of us inept with a f*cking stick of plastic, but then there's nothing I nor anyone else can do about it.

    Let's just hope it's not amazingly reliant on the touch screen.

    The better technology the better the game should be. On the DS it can probably intoduce many new concepts into Pokemon. Besides...the DS has tons of killer games beside Pokemon so don't worry if you;'re just buying a system for one game...you might as well enjoy the others too as well.

    It is all for the best as it would make the graphics/whatever better... but I own a DS so the money problem isn't that bad for me.

    On second thought, I think they should go back to the NES, or the original black and white gameboy. [/sarcasm]

    Which makes no sense as there's two Final Fantasy games coming out for the DS and another two coming out for the GBA along with the other two that are already on the GBA. Not to mention that Children of Mana and other Square games I can't remember off the top of my head are in development for it/released in Japan, and the only things annouced in terms of Final Fantasy for the PSP is a movie, and a spinoff. But, I suppose you could say the same about the other titles.

    Anyway, this topic has happened before, in the right forum, so...
