    The faster the first DSi only game comes out, the sooner we'll have DSi Only Capable flashcarts. [​IMG]

    This might get good anyway there are few good games that currently actually utilize DSi enhanced capabilities and only 1 coming soon. I still need more information on what games will be DSi cart only.

    This seems more a plot of trying to "out maneuver" pirating fans than a chance to take advantage of such a small increase of technology.

    The entire concept of the DSi reeks of the days of Mii Parade updates slinking through, thinking it was quite stealthy in its obvious intent at trying to stop exploits. You know, the useless junk piled over what it's really for.

    Except in this case, we actually have better hardware capable of better games.

    I'm guessing this isn't going to last for very long.....I figure that there may be between 20 and 100 titles total for DSi only.

    The DSi is not much of an upgrade to the lite, hmm added functionalities such as the built in camera and expandable ram so they can have downloadable content, and even though it may have a faster processor I highly doubt any of the games made for it will really take advantage of the extra power(which isn't much in the first place).

    Nintendo Really needs to come out with a next gen handheld now, they need to bring out a handheld that's capable of at least 128bit graphics.

    What they're doing with the DSi is trying to prolong the life of the DS before they have to come out with a new handheld.

    I want to see DSi's real power. If they won't make anything I don't need buy DSi.
    So that, please stop annoying just like "bought a new DS Lite, please don't".

    Because if there's anything parents buying video games for their kids know, it's how to distinguish a DSi from a DS. I predict a lot of angry+otherwise innocent customers and returns if these indeed end up on retail shelves.

    No big deal, this actually no different from the Gameboy Color titles.

    Black cartridges meant it was Gameboy Color enhanced, whilst clear cartridges would only work on the Gameboy Color.

    I feel as if the only difference will be something related to the camera, not the actual hardware.

    Yep, I second that, the sooner the pirates(privateers?) get their hands on a dsi only game, the quicker they can reverse engineer the cartridges and we will get true DSi capable carts for homebrew/piracy. We have seen that they are not above cheap tricks (danny phantom anyone?) in order to get the job done.

    Only thing now I have to decide: go ahead and buy a DSi now (with a new DS flash cart) or not? Since I keep up with the scene, I'll probably wait as I'll know the point to jump in.... I just don't want to get burned like with the PSP... I Started messing around with some old PS1 games, looked at getting a PSP to play them on the go, and come to find out new ones I see on the shelves now are limited in the CFW option enabling old PS1 game image use...


    Before I start getting flamed:
    1) I'm not saying the cloning the boot signature on flash carts is not a viable option to make sure your product doesn't become crap, just not the clean solution they seemed to promise...

    2) I have heard about the Chick/HEN option for newer PSP's, but that's a hit or miss work around each time you power on, not a permanent solution as with the old pandora battery trick for a persistent CFW... guess it's wait and see, or find a shop selling PSP 2000's pre-modded.

    But but but all our game boxes are white [​IMG] Guess that means Europe'll get DSi software in those slim black ones.
