It's not a "comparison", not in the same way you mean it, anyway. It's a reason not to take advantage of the many DS trade-in programs that could chop off a large portion of the system's price. If it played DS games perfectly, the trade-in(or trade-up) could POSSIBLY be justified. As it is, keeping a hold of the DS is a good idea if you want to actually have some satisfactory gameplay time with a dual screen Nintendo handheld made in the past decade.
