    I actually like the design of the DS PHAT more than the DSi's one.
    So is it possible to replace everything in the DS PHAT (except the buttons(I like those)) with the hardware of the DSi
    and make holes for the Camera ect. Or will that be to hard to do ??

    Already thanks

    I don't think so, the screen of the DSi is bigger.

    You can't. There's too much of a form factor issue. The Motherboard of the DSi is entirely different to the one in the original DS. None of the holes will line up, the shoulder buttons work differently, the screens are bigger on the DSi etc.

    Unless you want to do some serious case and circuit board modifications (which i doubt you do) abandon the idea NOW

    I already have one but with a lot of issues, like almost blanc bottom screen and the speakers making an annoying sound.

    EDIT: But the screens of the DS PHAT are to dark and the software (Menu) of the DSi is much better, so A combi is the best console for me.
    I hope the 3DS will look like that

    You could just buy one of those rugged cases that make it feel a bit like a DS phat and also give the bonus of extra protection

    from what i've seen the 3DS is a bit of a mid-way between DSiXL and DSphat design.
