Yes he does have his own ds but he likes playing on the computer as well because of the bigger screen.

Re: Computer Games

There are a number of DS emulators available of varying quality.
No I am not going to link to them as I think that they are basically dodgy and downloading games for them is illegal

How Does Nintendo Feel About the Emergence of Video Game Emulators?
The introduction of emulators created to play illegally copied Nintendo software represents the greatest threat to date to the intellectual property rights of video game developers. As is the case with any business or industry, when its products become available for free, the revenue stream supporting that industry is threatened. Such emulators have the potential to significantly damage a worldwide entertainment software industry which generates over $15 billion annually, and tens of thousands of jobs.

People that have been doing this for years now consider it standard and accepted practice and react with surprise that someone would wish to prevent it.
