    My DS Lite recently broke because I kinda dropped it in a pool...yea I know i'ma idiot [​IMG]

    So I was wondering if I should just buy a new DS Lite now or just wait for the DSi to come out and just buy that instead. Thankfully all my R4's files were backed up so I can just buy a new flashcart. So what do you guys recommend?

    Well DS price I thing they will go down when the DSi comes out...
    Also the prices of flahscarts dropped a lot...

    I would suggest you a DS because it's too soon for a DSi...wait for games that are only for DSi (probably they will only be weird and stupid ones...) and I don't thing good DSi flashcarts exist yet...

    Lol I object that, Acekard 2i is one of THE best DSi flashcarts in the market right now, but you're right about one thing, it might not support the English DSi. Oh btw, only if a store took in big stocks of DS lites, they're going to probably pull them off the shelves as soon as DSi comes out (thats what happened to the original DS and DS lites)

    I was reading over on the Amazon.com forums, the general consensus is that the DS Lite is a safe purchase for awhile, as there is no dire need to go from a DS Lite to a DSi. The Download Center apparently has a bunch of really weak releases in Japan.
