Regular forum users will probably get sick of this question as I found out this question is asked a lot. However this search was not sufficient enough to answer my questions because I miss the possibility to discuss. Right now I'm leaning towards buying an DSi because of the much improved hardware specifications. However will Nintendo/Game studio's ever take advantage of these improvements, or will they ignore this because of the incomparability in may cause with his older brothers. Also a couple of things worry me about buying the DSi. One of my major concerns is that I heard the DSi has upgradeable firmware and eventually will run out of exploits like the PSP rendering your flashcards useless. So would you recommend me buying a DSi or DSlite? EDIT: I forgot to mention that I got some gift certificates to spend wich will expire, so money is not really an issue.
