    So yeah ,

    I don't know if this is old news, but a new Nintendo is coming out soon.
    So, according to Nintendo, the product will go on sale between April 2010 and March 2011.

    Here is the source : http://kotaku.com/5499697/nintendo-announc...he-nintendo-3ds

    I am planning to buy a DSi this friday, but is it still worth buying? I already ordered an Acekard, and it's coming this week ;(

    Thanks in advance guys, DISCUSS ! [​IMG]

    Considering that the new DS will be backward compatible with original DS and DSi games, the acekard was not a waste, although I wouldn't buy the DSi if I were you and just wait till the 3DS comes out as it has been announced and is probably quite far into development.

    Personally the 3DS looks stupid. I wouldn't buy it...I don't see anything special.

    There's only the one Nintendo company. I'll assume you mean a new handheld console. I like the sound of the 3DS however.

    What's really ironic is that although it is called 3DS, it's the 4th DS in the series.

    how is it ironic? its not the DS 3 its 3DS as in Three Dimensional? and also how is it the 4th in the series? if youre referring to DS phat,DS Lite and DSi as different things thats pretty dumb since they're basically the same other then redesign and the ability to play dsi ware

    Do you people know the definition of irony? I said that because in the DS series it is the 4th, even though it is called 3ds and I know that its called 3ds because of the fact that its 3d but that's what makes it ironic.

    I don't think you wasted your money, even if it comes out this year it probably won't come out till around this time next year for America.
    And odds are it will probably get updates to work on the 3Ds the gba flash cards worked on the ds after all.

    It sounds like its yet anther lame verson of the Ds why does this new Ds give me Virtual boy flash backs?... Ooow my eyes are hurting.

    ...if you're looking at it that way I think it's a little more than 5th

    Well, technically it'd be the fifth. [​IMG]

    edit: I'm really too slow. [​IMG] Also, I was referring to DS systems only.

    Why does it matter? you'll still have your DSL to use with the Acekard.

    If the 3DS is hardware compatible with the DS, then there may not be a huge leap in graphics. Think Gamecube => Wii.

    I once had a Sega Master System with the 3D glasses, didn't do much for me....

    Like I said to the other guy, I'm talking about the DS series, not the Nintendo hand held series as a whole.

    True. Imagine DS games die completely.... Just like gamecube.
