    Right, so it's a DS Lite but with a wider screen and a camera. That's the only advantage I see to it now.

    There is no way I am converting my entire music library to play on the DSi. Also, region locked means that they've made changes as to what game carts will be accepted (if true) - therefore they've probably disallowed Flashcart play [​IMG]

    What do you guys think?

    Looking at all the specs it seems to me the biggest thing announced about it is the DSWare or whatever they are calling the Game/App Store. Since the new one has internal storage + SD slot, will it be compatible with the DS Lite at all? Hopefully it is, or I'd be pissed. I just got my first DS about a month ago!

    At least I think it won't really matter that much, they won't require the camera for any games (hopefully) and so we'll only be missing out if the downloadable games were not compatible. They probably will be anyway. So no real loss there.

    Logically thinking it out suggest they won't make people regret buying a DS Lite, but then who knows!

    I would highly doubt that nintendo would change their ds carts cause if you minus out the flash card group there still are tons of people(kids,parents,etc etc) that either own a ds or dslite, basically if they did such a thing you would pretty much piss off everyone......

    I'd question the worth of any game that requires the use of a camera, and any lame but optional extras that could possibly make use of it.

    Ugh... the DS section is going to end up just like the Wii - Hacking section, except replace "backup loader" with "DSi"

    I think one way to camera will be used in a game is taking a picture of yourself for an in-game profile or something.

    Music? Don't need it, since it doesn't support FLAC, or at least mp3...... I don't use the shit that is Itunes, so no AAE whatever file support.
    Internet looks promising, since it's actually different from the opera browser, or so I've heard.
    The Camera is meh.

    If it was actually cheaper, I maybe would've considered selling my current DSL and get the DSi, but since it's actually more expensive, no thanks.

    Only advantage of the DSi is the implication of a larger internal RAM and hardrive, which means all those "I want a GBA emulator for DS" dream of boys and girls *might* come true [​IMG]

    The ds still wont have the processing power to emulate anythin gmuch better than a nes. Do even know what a hardrive is? Cause the dsi isnt gonna have one.

    pshh hard drive lol
    And only if the CPU for the DSi is different than the DS, then a GBA emu might be true. but so far, NO.

    Its going to need a better CPU with all the stuff there putting into. DSiShop, apps, games, Internet Browser, Nintendo Zone. There going to need something to power it. Its sad that I don't think it can handle SDHC. It would sort of be like a harddrive. (How big can a DSiWare game be?)

    Even though it has a better CPU and larger screens... the screen specs are still............ Down below. Only if the DSi has better graphics with more polygons per screen...

    I am getting sick of these pro/cons threads. Make up your own mind or stick to one thread.

    By the way... To all the idiots acting superior and telling everybody off for talking about a DSi hard drive, I suggest you take a closer look at the specs.

    Is that clear enough?

    On another note, since it is able to run an even faster DS browser without a RAM expansion, that means the thing has had a cpu and/or ram upgrade

    It won't be a hard drive.

    Admittedly by definition, a Hard drive must contain a rigid non removable magnetic disk with a large data storage, though that is hardly the point. To the average layman, Cell phones, Ipods, and Wiis all have hard drives. Most people consider a "Hard Drive" to be a form of data storage on a device. So it was a minor error, but it was not deserving of the responses it received, unless you guys actually didn't know that it didn't have internal data storage.
