    I regret buying my DSi. I recently sold it along with a M3i Zero/8GB for $140.
    My DS Lite is fine imo.

    Hell, no. The screen on it is way too freaking big.

    I personally enjoy my DSi even with the fact I traded in my DS Lite to obtain it, I have a GBA so I can just play my GBA games on there and if I were to get the DSi XL it would annoy me because if you have played games on the DSi you can tell they are slightly distorted because of the slightly larger stretch.

    How do I regret what I never had...

    Even if I did, I probably wouldn't regret it. New one might have some new anti-piracy measure that would prevent me from using the PokeSavDS and other homebrew like that.

    Lame, Nintendo is milking money out of people.... scratch that they are milking stupid people for all they can. For the first time hardware sales have stopped climbing for the Wii so they are releasing the black Wii . They also admitted that their lack of innovation in games is the cause for the sudden halt of Wii sales. So now they are continuing the Apple route with the DSi and releasing stupid "innovations" so they can continue selling the same old crap. DSi is still a dumb idea in my opinion they don't have any worthy DSi only games. I am predicting that soon Nintendo will start selling GBA games on the DSi Store. I'm glad I don't buy their crap anymore. On a side note I have gone back to playing missed awesome PC games that I BOUGHT. The hell with you Nintendo I use to be a fan.

    Oh yeah Nintendo isn't the only one doing this crap either ie. PSP Go and PS3 revision. WTF screw you too Sony the hell with it screw you Japan. American Game makers are now leading the way in quality games.

    Agrees with Joe. No seriously is making more revisions of a console (that is completely optional to buy) worse than having your 360 rroding. Oh and I laugh at american game makers.

    partially regret, partially no..


    The big screen would be so much nicer when playing videos (I do play videos on my DSi).. and I abso-fricken-lutely LOVE the maroon color. And I like the idea of it having 2 stylus, one longer than the current DSi and one like a pen..

    What I don't like is that it's bigger than DSi.. I like having my dsi fitting nicely, if not slightly bigger, into my handbags.. DSi sometimes is big enough to fit in my bag, so having DSi LL being bigger would be hard. I like how compact DSi is, I don't need something bigger. That's the reason I avoid bulky PSP.

    But for nintendo to come up with this less than a month after I bought my DSi is like a smack to my face.. because if only I waited a lil bit more..

    Haven't bought a DSi, not getting an XL. No point, really. I'm just gonna order a bigger stylus off Nintendo when it comes out.

    No, honestly I am very happy.
    Its really a fun object for me.
    I love it. I don't regret buying it.

    The DSi XL will go to the people who may as well need it.
    For old people I guess, lmao.

    Resolution hasn't been increased... It still doesn't look half bad. They actually don't recommend it for playing games though. Kinda ironic since DSi is a game system...

    It really depends on what the LL actually offers over the DSi
    Apart from the larger screen - what's different ??

    IF, for example, on the DSi LL the larger screens mean higher resolution games - meaning better graphics - when playing 'DSi LL' games - then that's a plus

    If when playing older DS/DSi games - they are enlarged AND 'antialiased' to give smoother edges & no 'pixellation' effects - then that's another plus

    If it also allows you to store movies/pictures onto the SD card (from your PC) & played back - not just photos taken by the DS camera - then that's yet another plus

    If on the other hane it's just a DSi with larger screens - then I will DEFINITELY NOT be considering buying one
