About Nintendo DS
Nintendo DS offers great gaming consoles in the Philippines
The Nintendo DS is basically a dual screen device that features handheld gaming console. It was developed and released globally by Nintendo. The North American sale started on November 2004, but soon after that, this new gaming device revolutionized handheld gaming. The DS in its name stands for Developers’ System or Dual Screen. Their primary feature includes 2 separate LCD screens with the lower screen featuring a touch screen with buttons to control and navigate.
This complete Nintendo DS line was sold between 2004 and 2013. Nintendo made sure that their DS line succeeded their Game Boy Advance line, and this console was later replaced by Nintendo 3DS. In many Asian countries such as Philippines and Indonesia, this DS line have been exceptionally successful – as much as the fact that people still use this console for playing supported games. Asian markets have been a prime target for Nintendo upon releasing this console as they were cheap and affordable, but they also featured some of this company’s latest games and powerful handheld accessibility.
Some of the features of this line of gaming consoles include multiple variants over the years. These models include the original Nintendo DS, along with DS Lite, DSi as well as its XL variant. Even though there were several home consoles during that time, it still offers a huge bulk of Nintendo’s sales. So, let’s have a look at these multiple variants of this console line:
DS – It was the original model for Nintendo gaming console. It features a dual screen with a built in microphone as well as wireless functionality. Its design was pretty similar to a clamshell styled Game Boy Advance SP. Multiple DS gaming consoles could also interact over a shared personal Wi-Fi connection, as well as Nintendo Wi-Fi service.
DS Lite – Several design changes occurred in this variant, as it became much slimmer and lighter than its predecessor. In addition to that, the LCD display module improved as well, with a much brighter display. This model actually marked the extension of Nintendo’s gaming module to several Asian markets, including Singapore and East Asia.
DSi – In order to set up a competition to Sony’s PSP, Nintendo released their 3rd iteration of DS line. It featured a much larger display area as compared to the DS Lite. In addition to that, the company removed Game Boy Advance cartridge slot from it, in order to improve its portability without compromising on its durable character. It also featured a couple of digital camera, with internal and external storage capacity. An online store called Nintendo DSi Shop was also introduced with this device.
DSi XL – This was Nintendo’s last installment in this line. It also improved on overall size, featuring a larger display and multiplayer connectivity. The screen angles also improved with dual 4.2 inch wide angle LCD screens and improved battery life. Nintendo aimed for a better table top experience with this device and introduced 2 styli as well.
Popularity in the Philippines
This gaming console was perhaps the most popular gaming module in South Asian markets during its time. Its popularity has decreased over the years with the introduction of much improved and more innovative gaming consoles, but it still holds a powerful market share in Philippines. Nintendo has recently released some major gaming titles especially for their DS line, and some of their best selling games are already available in most DS models. The major reason for its popularity in Philippines is the fact that this gaming console is pretty customizable in terms of its usage and touch modules. It features multiple controls layouts which is absolutely fantastic for gamers who are not really big fans of the D pad gaming consoles.
Marketing strategy for this DS series is very simple for Nintendo. In order to retain its popularity in the Philippines, Nintendo has subsequently improved their gaming compatibility specs, and looked over to introduce new titles for this series.
