    ds lite

    Hello, my son has had a ds lite for years and its buttons have finally given up. I assumed he d like a ds xl to replace it but he says the ds lite is the best as it plays all the old games aswell ( he puts a chunky type cartridge in it aswell as ds games) hes had a ds3d but always went bk to the lite! obviously im not clued up but is it a case of having to get the same ds lite as hes had and wheres best place for this?
    As always thank you loads in advance

    Hi, what's happened to the buttons? Normally an easy fix to replace. Ebay is your best bet

    The 3ds will play all the ds games but won't play game boy advance games.
    The game boy advance games are bigger cartridges that are more rectangular than the square ds and 3ds games.

    Places like Game, granger games or cex sell second hands ds lites

    I agree replace buttons yourself with parts from eBay or buy secondhand from eBay .

    Game boy advance and game boy are different, you are talking about game boy advance or gba games.

    Your best bet is a 2nd decent kept console on eBay or possibly gumtree. Wouldn't really reccomend CEX but each to their own, also you could buy some replacement buttons or a brand new shell for it on eBay around a tenner and put it together and clean it up. Likely the contacts have got dust in em and thats why they wont work.
