Nintendo DS Downloads - Avoid Free DS Downloads

By Ron Taylor

The Nintendo DS is the most popular handheld gaming console these days. It was released in 2004 and had a simple clamshell design. Nintendo DS comes in two version the regular DS and DS Lite, which is just smaller, slimmer, lighter and has a brighter screen. Other models like the DSi and TWL also exist.

The DS is really popular and this is why there is a huge demand for DS downloads. You can get DS downloads at most retail stores that carry Nintendo DS games.

The DS downloads found at retail stores are most of the time only demo games. All you have to do is go to the store, click on "DS Download Play" and choose which game demo you would like to download. The great thing is that all of this is done wirelessly. The demo games are transmitted directly onto your DS.

Downloading at a retail store is the easiest way to get access to official, free Nintendo DS game demos and other free stuff like wallpaper. It's free and you can sample any game before you buy it. You are allowed to play the demos as much as you like, even if you leave the store. However, the demo is gone as soon as you turn of your DS, because it is not stored on it.

These Nintendo DS downloads are the ones most DS gamers know of. A great advantage of downloading at retail stores is that you will get updated regularly by the Nintendo company and game makers.

You can also download content from the internet but that is not as safe. If you don't have an updated virus scanner installed, you might download malicious code and malware to your DS and run the risk ruining it. Games might fail to start or be too buggy to play.

If you want to download games off the internet you will need a R4 card which has to be plugged into your PC

The bad thing when downloading off the internet is that you never know whether you download a working copy or a game that is infected with a virus. There are many web sites that offer either free or paid games for your handheld console. You definitely should spend some time searching for the best and most reliable ones. Look for user reviews that seem authentic.
