Imagine the world at your fingertips! Imagine being able to visit MySpace and download a pirated copy of happy feet in just 35 hours, all from the comfort of your bed! Imagine no more, because with the Nintendo DS browser you can do it all and more – and it’s on sale for just $ 26.38!
The DS and DS Lite did not have enough memory to load web pages, so each copy of the DS browser came with an 8MB Memory Pak expansion, which you can see in the video above. Without this extension, the game (or, uh … the app?) Will not work.
We can’t really recommend you to buy and use this, in case you think it might be a good way to access the internet – DS browser has huge security issues, it struggles to load the images, it insists on formatting everything in a very narrow column, and in case you can’t already guess, the extra 8MB of memory isn’t enough to load … well, most modern websites.
As the video above explains, however, it can be used for homebrewing – and it’s pretty cool to own “a hard copy of a web browser”.
If none of this bothers you and you don’t mind spending $ 26.38 on something you can get for free on just about any device in your home, then good news! The Nintendo DS browser is currently for sale on Amazon.com. It’s also widely available on eBay for around $ 5-10, but the Amazon version is Nintendo official. You would be a fool not to take advantage of this new Internet craze, right?
