IMHO, I really don't think you should wait for the 3DS. You'd have to wait close to a year. I'd buy a DS Lite for some gaming. A DSi would be nice, but you have to find a good reason to buy it: Use Camera a lot? Good DSi Ware? etc. Check out my DSi Review if you want some info A DSi XL would be great, if you had the money. The screens are great for games and movies and other stuff... ____ Well that's just me.. How 'bout your opinion?
