well with the dsi ware which is similar to wii shop, im guessing that the pokemon games will come out for like 8 dollars. True youll have to start all over but youd probably still be able to play pokemon games on the dsi.

Or, I could NOT waste hundreds of dollars for a junky remake and just play my good games for FREE with my save files on them.

Perfect!

Great, way to go, Nintendo-- instead of just making it better, you're just copying ideas off Sony at this point in throwing in a handful of useless features most HARDCORE GAMERS could give a damn less about. Must be aiming the DSi at women who need more useless crap.

The only idea of any VALUE to come out of this is that DS shop. But that's not nearly enough for me to care about it.

Point being is that the DS isn't always going to include backwards compatibility with GBA games as a feature. Quit complaining about it. If you're so up for playing GBA games, pull out your DS/Lite or GBA/SP.

I have to agree a bit here, but they're not all bad applications. Free, built-in web browsing is a nice feature when you're on the go without a laptop, the camera can kill time, and music feedback has a nice touch. :o I'm very interested in the DS shop, particularly because downloading games onto your handheld could bring up interesting possibilities.

It's funny though because the PSP has all those other than the camera, which is an accessory you can buy.

I will avoid it LIKE THE PLAGUE. Nintendo is making a DS. That is like a copy of the PSP with two screens. Way to go.

If they make specific games for this new half platform (which they said they won't, but just wait.) then I'm definitely selling my DS for a PSP. I mean. Really. We all want cameras and the ability to play music on a gaming console.

When the DS Lite came out, everyone was reassuring the DS users that, no, there won't be specific games for this new thing, it's okay. But yeah. Some games are slightly specific to the DS Lite, I've seen a couple that yeah... it's interesting isn't it?

Really? Six-Axis...

Anyway, as far as the GBA slot goes, it was bound to happen sooner or later. We don't really need it anymore anyways, so I'm fine with the idea.

As for the DSi itself, I'm most likely going to proceed in purchasing it. Camera and MP3 capability, Opera-supported browser, DSWare shop(Much like the Wii Shop Channel), SD card solution, and a nice set of hardcore releases, such as Castlevania: Orders of Ecclesia and Chrono Trigger.

To finish this off, I'm quite joyous about this.

You forgot to mention 40% lower battery time, inability to play GBA games, increased weight, and slower load times.

But that's okay.

Why are you trashing everyone that wants to buy it? We get it, you don't like it. :\

Well I'm going to get it. I don't have a camera or mp3 player (I'm poor:X) and it's just better than the ds lite. So just buying all three in one just saves money.

Amen.

No need for it. I already have a DS, I already have a iPod, I already have a camera, and I'm not that dependent on the Internet to feel the need to carry it everywhere. And if I badly needed that, I'd get a BlackBerry then.

I gave my DS Lite away. So yes. I will be buying the DSi. Unwillingly, of course.
