    DS unless I hear anything about it being any different from the 360 and PS3 versions other than the obvious graphical differences. I don't really care much about the graphical aspect of it, so if it's the same in terms of game play I'll be happy.

    Edit: Oh yea, and <regular 1st post celebratory comment here>

    PS3 version for me...

    For the DS version, Firaxis has said only the graphics/presentation layer is different. It even has the same Game of the Week, except there is no leaderboard for it.

    Welcome to the forums, MarlowK. :wavey:

    Well, I'm definitely getting the DS version. DS = Civ Anywhere!

    I might buy it for my son's XBox360, if I can come up with a good reason to spend a few hours at his place. ;)

    I have both but I'm getting 360 all the way. Better online experience.
    Unfortunately I'm very disappointed with my ps3 for the MP experience, so I just use it like blue ray player only.

    I only own the 360, so I have to get that. But from what I'm hearing from those that have the PS3 version already, there are a lot of bugs- and the DS graphics aren't where I would like them to be- so I'd probably go with the 360 even if I had the choice.

    Dude, Portable Civ, Portable Civ, Portable Civ

    Civ at Work

    Civ on the Train

    Civ on a Plane

    Civ in the Park

    Civ at the Beach

    Civ in the bathroom when you're at dinner with your girlfriends parents

    How is this even an issue?

    the only question should be: is my second copy going to be for the 360 or the Ps3

    Umm... You need to step back a little and think about what you're saying.
    I can definitely see the benefits to a portable Civ, but there would obviously be people who would abuse this. ;)

    I've got it on my 360 already, and the DS version is on pre-order. Portable Civ = \o/

    I've got the 360 version. I'm planning to pick up the DS version sooner or later. Portable Civ just seems like a great idea.

    I started off saying I'd get the DS version, but after playing the XBox 360 version I'm sold.

    Umm. When Civ 3, and Civ 4 came out I didn't go anywhere for a few days. Not even dinner with the in-laws. This would atleast get me to dinner :D

    I'm with you on that one. DS CIV all the way. Now I just need to decide if I'm going to bother with a copy for the PS3.

    I like the DS so much. My PSP had so much dust after 2 years of not playing it, I just sold it on CL. I don't know why, but the DS is just a better platform.

    Got the call a while ago that my DS copy will be at Gamestop tomorrow. (pre-ordered months ago)

    I know what I'm doing on my lunch break
