    Well...at least that's a start.

    Though everyone and their brothers have the originals by now. =P

    I think these make more sense then the wholesale version. You can have it your DS at all times without having to carry an extra cart everywhere (unless you have a flash cart like us [​IMG] ). That is the whole point of brain age, to do it everyday during your spare time. Makes things a lot easier.

    I don't want to pirate Brain Age, I hate those kinda games....
    But I'm looking forward to this, I really hope we DS (Phat or Lite) owners will be able to pirate these DSWare games [​IMG]

    Some kinda game, they'll figure something out [​IMG]
    Or you can take a picture of something, then the game turns it in to a puzzle, and you have to complete the puzzle.

    I think they'll have something to do with sound aswell, when they were talking about the speakers and the cameras I remember seeing something to do with them saying their focus was about new gameplay using these features, and not to compete with the many other sound/camera systems out there.

    Same. Don't care about these particular games, but in general, I do hope an actual DSi system won't be required to play DSiWare games.

    I hope this can be used for pirating purposes...
    like hacking the shop somehow for free download..
    and I thought it was gonna be something like VC... to download SNES, NES, etc games..

    This is nice. Why? Because it's screaming, "hey, you can play NDS games off the SD card, HACK ME!"

    Even if you were to pirate it, you'd probably need a whole new flash card or something cause thats probably totally different software then a regular .nds file.

    cant cycloDS update their firmware so tht it can be compatible... Pirates are more intelligent than one can imagine, i mean surely they will find a way to play DSiWare on the flashcart but downloading may be a problem but still i think it can be hacked
    I just hope the SD is useful for those planning to use Piracy ™ technology
