    "Nintendo of America’s DSi announcement also casually mentioned there is more to the DSi than the camera and DSiWare. In case you didn’t catch the blip here’s the skinny.

    A few months ago PM Studios told us they were working on making a DSi version of DJ Max Technika. Their plan is to give the Nintendo DSi release more features, but DJ Max Technika would work with a regular DS too. Hardware publishers can take advantage of on the DSi include the camera, faster network connections, the DSiWare Store, and storage space on an SD card."

    So we may New Super Mario Bros DX?
    Haha, actually, I kinda like the idea of your Mii playing Super Mario.

    So DSi titles will still work on the DS, they just won't have added camera, etc, sounds good to me.

    It means it can't play Guitar Hero or any game that uses the GBA slot for obvious reasons [​IMG]

    I don't think there will be many DSi only games.. at least not this year.. the DS/DSL user base is huge and ignoring it by releasing a DSi only game is certainly not a good idea.

    It's still not a compromise for lack of GBA slot.

    The GBA is an 8 year old format playable on 5 systems, let it go.

    I don't give a s*** how old it is. I use the emulators for snes, N64 and other ancient systems all the time. Don't go sounding like my schoolmates that would prefer any game with blood and good graphics over something better without it.

    Exactly. You use emulators. You don't complain that your Wii can't play N64 cartridges. The GBA has a tonne of great games, but Nintendo can't keep backwards compatibility in hardware forever. The DS has a big enough library now that I don't think they need the GBA slot anymore, and if I feel like playing GBA games, I'll go and play them on my DS Lite, my GBA or my GBASP. Heck, I could even go play them on my GameCube.

    its rumoured that nintendo will be making GBA games DLC through some sort of built in emulator (with the DSi being more powerful than the DS). nothing like milking 8 year old games that cost Nintendo nothing....

    Just because the external GBA slot was removed, doesn't mean the internal GBA processor or BIOS were.

    Has the processor/bios actually been found in the DSi?
