    "So good...Love ds...I have had this for about a month now, so far it has treated me really well, I play t in my free time and I just took a flight to Texas and it was great so I think who ever buys this won't be disappointed, the only drawback is for some reason you have to buy the charger seperatly but it is like 15 bucks so I guess that is not too bad...I bought it for my sister, she loved it, I was there when she opened it, and I saw it for the very first time, it is beautiful, when I hold it with my hands it felt solid, not like other reviews that I've readed where the say the upper part of the 3ds wiggles a little, well It was a gift, I'm a 21 years old guy, not I gamer, and I want to buy one for me"
