    How much difference is there between a DSi Enhanced game played on a DSi and a DS, is the difference worth it
    Has anybody got a photo to show the difference between them

    All of the DSi enhanced games allow you to use the DSi's camera for some sort of gimmicky thing. In Assassin's Creed 2 Discovery you can take a mug shot of yourself and it will place the mug shot on all of the "ASSASSINO!" posters in the game. In RPG Maker DS it allows you to take a picture and use the picture as a face-box. In Pokemon Black and White you can use the Live Caster to video chat with other people within your wireless range.

    The DSi enhanced games are able to be played on a normal DS. The DSi enhancements are just gimmicks and are not even worth it.

    There are a number of DSi-exclusive games that ONLY work on a DSi. The only game in the USA that I can think of is Photo Showdown where you take pictures of stuff and it makes monster based on things in the picture (not sure how it works.) You can then take the monsters and battle them. (Much like Pokemon, only gimmicky!)

    You do, however gain access to DSi Ware. But that alone is still not a good reason to get a DSi as the DSi ware is just stupid as well.

    Wario Ware Snapped!, Dr Mario Express, Mario Clock, Mario Calculator, Animal Crossing Clock, Animal Crossing Calculator, just to name a few. (Most are [overpriced] shovelware anyway!) The only good thing about the DSi is the web browser as it is faster than the DS one, the bad thing about it...NO FLASH. NO FLASH = NO YOUTUBE! You also can't listen to music via music streaming website like Pandora on the DSi...bull**** Nintendo, just bull****!

    It doesn't sound worth getting a different flash card just for that, what a joke [​IMG]

    That doesn't make any sense. DSi ENHANCED games run as normal DS games when played via a flashcart that runs on the DSi.

    Yep. It'd be idiotic to buy a DSi mode flashcart solely for a few stupid in game features. However homebrew apps made for DSi mode will be able to do far, far more than regular hombrew apps. [​IMG]

    The apps at the DSi Shop probably aren't worth their price, but I'd make an exception for Bomberman Blitz ;] . That's a classic, I never get bored playing it.
