Nintendo DS Lite: I want one for Christmas

I don't know that I've ever clicked through on an ad before, but this morning something about Jamsessions caught my eye. It's a game that turns the Nintendo DS Lite into a guitar simulator. Check out the Producer Walk-Through 2 video for a taste. They plan to let people submit their own videos as well. That's a great marketing idea.

It's not available until September. I'm not a "delayed satisfaction gratification" sort of person, but I might be able to wait until Christmas. Hmmm, I'm already waiting until Christmas for my iPhone.

I don't think this is a frivolous toy for people who can't play the guitar. I could see it being an easier and faster way to decipher tabs, and compose music. It'd also be way easier to take on a plane. It could make an interesting companion device for someone learning to play the guitar.

Might someone else in my family want one? I'm always needing ideas...

You should play "Brain Age" while you're waiting for Christmas. It too is targeted at an older audience.

Okay, I'll give that a try. Thank you for the suggestion!
