I find the form factor and color options better in the DSi. Plus I don't wanna walk around with a huge "Gameboy" in my pocket. Secondly, with the 3DS announced it almost seems as though Nintendo is planning on having 3 models of the DS: DSi (Entry level system.) DSi XL (Hi-res performance system.) 3DS (Ultimate fun system.) I think they are also going to sell these at 3 different price points. I don't know I tend to speculate a lot.
http://www.engadget.com/2009/10/13/nvidia-tegra-to... Supposedly coming out in late '10. Excited about this? Would you buy it on release? How about if you just recently got the DSi? I use my DS lite a lot, and held off exactly because i was dissapointed that the DSi was not more of an upgrade, so I would say that I will get this very soon after release if its true and i can afford it.
Were can I browse all the DSi ware games if I don't have a DSi? I want to see what the store has because i was thinking of upgrading to this from the original DS and wanted to know what kind of games i can get and if they are worth it.
FYI for anyone out there running a DSi with a flashcard for homebrew or...other software. The newest update makes them all unusable.
Can it be done? Has Nintendo finally stopped hacks in their tracks? (I can't resist a good pun) Write your views or if you have hacked the DSi, share a link.
I have $20 to buy some games with, and would love something new to play... your suggestions?
i've seen both and here at gdgt it says .3. please let me know. -thanks
Well, for me it was! I mean, despite the fact it lacks a GBA slot, this thing is pretty awesome. Besides, there is usually only one card inserted into the DS slot. *COUGH* flash cart *COUGHCOUGH* :D The cameras are definitely a plus too, but so far is only a novelty. The interface also looks a lot nicer, not to mention how much better the internet browser, and with the virtual shop. What made you want to buy it?
I really like the potential the DSi Store brings. I've downloaded a few titles, but it's virtual console titles I'd really like to see. It's doing quite well on the Wii side. I would think that Nintendo would be licking their chops at the idea of selling titles again to such a large userbase. It would be nice if they would allow downloads to DSi users on titles they already bought on the Wii, but I realize this is quite the dream. I would really enjoy playing titles like Super...
This thing has internal and external cameras, a microphone and speakers. It should have a video chat application. Why it doesn't already come with one seems oddly conspiratorial.
