    I have had my DSLite for about 3 years now and my hinge just now cracked.
    I have replaced a DSLite case before for my sister and it works just fine.

    So I have come to ask should I buy a DSi, wait and buy a DSi LL or buy a new case?

    and if you answer is buy a DSi/ LL which cart should I buy?
    I have a R4, M3S and a M3Real
    With a 4 GB Kingston

    Thanks in advance yall
    Kaisai

    Edit: didnt know that its now called LL

    I wouldn't go that route. I'd just get a new case. You'll spend more money on the DSI / LL and new cart than is really worth it. I'm keeping my DSLite until the new DSi etc is really needed for games.

    Why break what isn't broken (lol besides your hing). Save your money for something that matter more to you.

    Well, let's just see what new things are included in the DSi LL first. If it's something that is not totally significant, then you might as well replace the case of your DSL. Since you already know what the regular DSi includes, then you decide whether you want to buy it or not (Read the Reviews about the DSi, of course).

    I would wait for the DSi XL or get the DSi ll now, I find the 3" screen hurts my eyes so I bought the DSi ll and never regretted it
    acekard 2i or R4i is the card I would buy, I have seen them for $16 not to expensive

    Get the DSi. It's better then the DSi LL, and it's actually portable.

    To me personally, I would go wait for DSi LL.. I always go for the newest (and can use flashcarts, ofc).. [​IMG] but that's just me.. but I would recommend to wait for a review on DSi LL before actually buying one.. goodluck

    P.S. Stay Away from R4's!

    I think protokun wanted to add more to what lolzed said.

    well i was thinking about getting a DSi LL and getting a M3i Zero (cuz am used to the M3's).

    anyways i do have a backup DSLite thats why i dont mind spending the $$
    before yall start sayin spend it on something else like a xbox360, ps3, or psp i have them.

    If the quarter is to be taken literally, then 12/4 = 3, so sometime from January to March [​IMG]

    When you watch videos online, do you have them fit fullscreen and get stretched out? If so get an LL.

    If you're not geriatric, go for the DSi.

    The news just came in today saying that Nintendo is officially releasing The DSI XL on "March 5th" for uk . Don't believe me [​IMG] ; Then just google it by writing "DSI XL release march" and it will pop out .


    As for me when the dsi XL comes out, i'll be geting that as i only want it due to its big screens. That is one of the reasons why i haven't got ds yet (small screen) .

    I think you will get more for your money if you wait for the DSi XL. It will be the newest version of the DS and therefore if you decide you don't like it you could sell it for more than you could a DSi after it's release.

    Wait for the DSiLL if you want bigger screens.
    If not, then get a case.
