    "Anxious to secure a Nintendo DSi without having to wait in some crazy line? Online retailers have begun taking pre-orders of the North American version of the system, so you can buy now and not have to worry about stalking Wal-Mart late April 4 to be first in line on April 5 (You are free, as usual, to stalk Wal-Mart for other purposes). You can order your DSi for $169.99 at Amazon or GameStop (in black or blue). If you want extra stuff, you can order a bundle from GameStop (again in black or blue) that contains the system and a "Folio Starter Kit" consisting of a case, screen protectors, a game case, earbuds, and a car adapter.

    For a better look at the system that you might be buying, check MTV Multiplayer's first-ever images of the English-language DSi menu. As expected, it looks exactly like the menu from the Japanese version with the crucial addition of comprehensible text. It features the same photo manipulation, photo arranging, and sound altering functions from the original suite of DSi software, along with upgradeable firmware and, of course, the DSi Shop."

    I don't know if I am going to buy this or not... I might just wait a few months until it gets cheaper or something. My DSL it still working, and is still durable for meh [​IMG]

    Oh Uruha, I wouldn't be too excited for the blue. Just check it out at GameStop's site. You will come across it.

    I hate the colour... It is like, Cyan Blue that got sharpened so much, that is looks like it was painted on >

    I'd want to pre-order, but this is American pre-orders, not Play-asia.
    That, and I absolutely must know if my flash cart, or any new ones swill work on the US system or not.

    I actually like the blue one! If I get a DSi (really don't think I will) I would most definitely get a blue one. They made a cool Dragon Quest protector case for the DSi that goes PERFECTLY with the blue color. The Slime Speaker also goes perfectly with it.

    The blue one is very nice, but I really like the look of the black one.

    If it were GBASP Blue though I would be all over it.

    Nintendo is just living large. Just before their sales hit it's peak, they release a new DS which will shoot it back up again. You can't really blame them.

    I am really interested in seeing how the next generation plays out. Will Sony and Microsoft try to follow the same path?

    Yep, they're asking for a $25 reservation fee...which is steep.

    Well it's not like they're charging an extra $25. It's a deposit. Gamestop just wants to make sure they aren't reserving it for nothing.

    Hmm, not sure if I can compute.
    Gamestop usually asks for a $5 reservation fee for upcoming games...it'd compute for them to ask $25 for reservation fee for an upcoming system.

    I just preordered a blue one from Amazon and an AK2i from DX. Click, click.

    Do not drink and surf.

    We're not even sure the US DSi's won't have an updated firmware or hardware that'll brick the currently DSi compatible carts.

    if you already have a ds - you should not buy this. it is more or less the same, not counting the sd card and the stupid camera. not a big enough advancement to worth the buy _if_ you already have a ds / ds lite. furthermore it seems that the cracking method is the same - slot 1 cards. i guess that there should be a way to hack this thing via the sd card just as it did happen with the wii (zelda + twilight + backup launcher or what). so until that is done by someone knowledgeable and a huge amount of time - no way i'm gonna buy or suggest anyone to buy this thing. enuff said.
