The Nintendo DS is a new departure from Nintendo's Game Boy set of handheld consoles. Touted as a third pillar, separate from the Game Boy and GameCube families, the DS featured two displays, one atop the other, the lower screen featuring touch sensitivity. It allows for connection to the internet to play games with players across the world with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and locally through an ad-hoc network the DS can create.
