Nintendo DS, shooters, GBA & TV connection…

Hello,

I’m interested in buying a Nintendo DS so that I can play the shooters available for it, the older GBA games and also being able to hook it up to a regular CRT TV through composite RCA via one of those 3rd party wire adaptors I’ve seen in various shops.

I’m not sure if this is even possible on an older CRT TV via composite RCA or only on a newer TFT/LCD TV as it has newer HDMI input.

At my local game store there are 3 Nintendo DS types:

  • Ninntendo DS Lite (2006)
  • Nintendo DS Lite (2008)
  • Nintendo DSi (With A camera) (2009)

So, which of the 3 would be the best choice for all my expectations?

Thanks in advance.

The DSi can't play GBA games or use anything else that requires the GBA slot.

But it makes up for that with an SD slot and downloadable content. I would advice you go with either DS or DS lite not DSI. For one, they are cheaper, and second of all they have the GBA slot.

If you really want to play GBA games on a TV, you'll need a Gamecube and Gameboy Player attachment. It'd be much more reliable than some 3rd party DS add-on that lets it do something it's not really made to do. And probably cost about as much.
