Nintendo DS is simply known as one of the best and definitely the most popular handheld gaming consoles of all time. It was released back in 2004 in some parts of the globe. The following year, in 2005 it was released globally. The famous DS stands for dual-screen, a more common alternative. However, originally it was an acronym for Developers System.
