    I am going to be importing a Japanese DSi, and I was wondering, would I be able to put in a code from a Points card I bought from a US Store?

    So basically, with US DSi Points card code work on Japanese DSi Shop channel?

    DSi points are region locked and you may need to import some either find a reliable seller on Ebay (there are at least 2 in existence, search around or use google) or if you know Japanese use Amazon Japan like I did since the sellers didn't have any 5000 Wii/DSi point cards.

    Why import a japanese DSi? Get a US one if you live in the US, that way if it breaks or gets damaged it will be covered by Nintendo of America's warranty program.

    And no: buying a japanese console will not by you wap points.

    He wants what the DSi Japanese has to offer based in DSiWare I presume.

    Correct answer

    Japan gets the better stuff 99% of the time.

    I am getting a Japanese DSi simply because I want a red one with Japanese DSiware.

    I think the red DSi coming out on July 11th fits my bill perfectly, so I am getting it. Sorry, we only have two colors and Japan has many...I have reason to be jealous and want what Japan has XD.

    I already ran out of DSi points but I notice they are not to expensive. Its 100 points for every dollar. I dont know how its in japan but I think they are more expensive than here en the US. I know that japanese always gets he better because they are the one who create the stuff, this means that they have everything before us, they get exclusive stuff, and they also get more is kind of unfair for peple that live around america like me. I would have to learn japanese Im already working on it but is going to take sometime.

    We just have to wait for more games to come out in the DSware because the DSi is only on its early stage as it was in japan last year, dont be so anxious just learn to have more patience.

    yea a good game for dsi points is only 8$-10$ basically instead of 30$ so its way better
