    Im still getting it, April 2nd is far enough away for me to save up for it,
    fucking exchange rate has made it nearly impossible for me to buy stuff from UK and a lot of USA sites expect dealextreme of course.

    Well played, Nintendo. The DSi will be released just in time for the $950 one-time 'economic stimulus payment' for students and low-income earners. A lot of Aussies will have the cash to splash out on a DSi, in spite of the hefty pricetag.

    Personally, I can't justify spending $300 on a handheld console, regardless of the superior ARM 9 processor, or the WPA compatibility (the only 2 features on the DSi that actually interest me). I'd rather add another $100, to finally get myself a Wii instead. Or maybe even... an XBox 360. *gasp!* [​IMG]

    But I won't - I'd rather have a laptop for college instead. Thanks, Mr Rudd! [​IMG]

    Nonetheless - ya gotta admit, releasing the DSi to the Aus market in early April was a pretty shrewd move for the Big N... [​IMG]

    Eh, UK prices
    £149 for a DSi
    £99 DSLite and no games
    £120 for XBOX 360 Arcade console [​IMG]
    £130 for PSP at some places
    £99 Used old banger
    £150 Decent electric guitar or High class Acoustic guitar
    £170 iPod touch
    £160 DSLite (any colour) + two High Class/New games like Chrono trigger, Guitar hero on tour.
    £100 Laser eye surgery xD

    Ahh stuff DSi, the only advantage of it is that I'm buyin a DSLite and the price tag of the should fall significantly. I still got a phat D: Great condition for it's age apart from the rattling speaker
