    The moment you turn on the DSi, you can immediately enjoy its newly-added internal
    software even without inserting any cartriges, just like Pictochat. The DSi contains a "Camera,"
    "Music Player," "Software Download/Purchase"・・・・・・In addition, this software has been newly
    developed for the Wii Channel. The number of software titles will increase and it will be possible
    to add more software to the Menu.

    The DS is now a camera you can easily take pictures and play with. </b><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->

    The DSi has integrated camera lens. When you select "DSi Camera" from the menu, it
    instantly changes into camera mode. Anyone can easily take pictures, compare facial photos
    and measure their "Likeness" and alter pictures. A large number of functions have been added
    that you'll want to share with other people. You can save pictures that you've taken to the SD
    card and view them on a cell phone or PC. You can directly exchange between two DSi consoles
    via wireless connection. It's a camera you can play with and use as a communication tool regardless
    of your abilities with cameras.

    If you save your favorite song to an SD card and insert it into
    the Nintendo DSi's SD slot, you can enjoy its many features as
    a music player. Not only can you just listen to music, but you can
    also take your favorite verses from the melody and loop it, or
    remove just the vocals and use it to practice karaoke. Also, by
    pressing buttons with the rhythm you can add sounds to the music,
    you can play with voice samplings taken by the mic and visually enjoy
    the music through the LCD screen. Unlike existing music players, you
    can actually play with the DSi music player.

    ※DSi Sound can only play AAC-format music files.

    Some feature don't sound like a basic software that should be in FW.

    All of them is more like a game.

    Nintendo just put them on new FW instead of cartridge.

    And I bet oneday we going to get the DS ware working on old DS/DSL

    well rupee clock... don't cuss, it could still get additional "channels" and updates now that it has a sd slot, so they might even add mp3 playback and videoplayback ^^

    Meh. Not too sure about this. Well yes, the cameras are neat, but I feel that anything else is just a FW that eventually someone will get to run on the DSL too. And no GBA slot? Why?

    This actually point out how to discourage piracy
    I do remember a rumor that a media cart was going to be released by N but they didn't... They thought of a better idea
    1.) If people want to store more games and they suggest downloading then like Wiiware this is the solution (Flashcard were very famously defending themselves by saying that we can play many games on one card and thus SD is there to implement it officially)
    2.) Media - Flashcarts were very famous for mp3 playing and so on thus they knew music is an integral part to anything and they must be kicking themselves as to why they didn't do anything about it until the media cart or now
    3.) Internal Browser shows that with the increase in the need to make everything very interactive in terms of online global community, a browser is necessary! (Firefox would have been better and also there are many people who are pirating opera Browser or even homebrew ones so why not make it easier for us)
    4.) Camera - Ha! This shows they wanted to add something completely new but they didn't know exactly what but with i-devices (and also the name DSi) there came 2 cameras and my hopes which i think are confirmed is that one which is internal is for the Game like Eye toy and the external one is for the usual camera footage etc. Not a bad idea considering they wanted to do a camera for which performs both these tasks but then people would complain that they have to open the DS to take a picture . (Note: Whatever anyone says... some people don't have a camera and this is not something a flashcard can do so it's cunning)
    5.) Bigger Screens - Goes to show that they are concerned with their act of misjudging the need for a smaller DS at a cost of not acknowledging the screen size. Battery life will be decreased obviously but maybe they will increase the capacity and power of the battery to compensate for it
    6.) Placement of power switch and it's mode of function is not very nice since you may just inadvertently press it even if you have to do it for a long time plus the side bar was better but if SD came in it's position, there is always other sides for that like the GBA had it in the center so it would be okay if it were in the top right or something

    Overall : Excellent ideas but the camera placement and small issues will not be so impressive if people study it well
    BUT for those who may consider buying a flashcart with the DS (lite) may think twice since what they want together with the DS is going to be added in the DSi so good for new (naive) customers but not for those who actually wanna play the DS
    I think it deserves 7/10

    Things to consider ; 1.) Can GBA be played now from Slot-1 or SD?
    2.) Will Pictochat be better?
    4.) Will the SD slot prove to be an SD Flashcart?
    5.) Will the cameras, L-R and Hinges hold on for a long time in terms of durability and purpose?
    6.) Will GBA games now be easily played through DSiWare or SD slots?
    7.) Will Game Quality decrease if Screen size is increased at the same resolution?
    8.) Will the New DSi increase or decrease piracy with SD slots?

    There are more but there are enough for today

    One main thing I'm still unclear about: Will both screens on DSi be touch screens? One article on IGN says "yes," another makes no mention of it. I'm not sure what to think. If they both are, then we can expect proprietary software for the system that won't work on the older DS / DS Lite.

    BTW, thanks for the translation. Nice job!

    From what I understood...And I've seen it on multiple sites....The DSi DOESN'T have upper screen touch sensitive..

    So I believe that most games will be DS-DSi compatible.....Only if they make some games with the use of cameras, I don't think those games would be playable on older systems..[​IMG]

    Its been stated by Nintendo that no DSi Exclusive games will be made, DSiWare will be exclusive for it...for now.

    Not only that, but there's also 10 second recording. Pretty lame.
    Nintendo needs to fix those.

    I'm pretty sure a developer can convince Nintendo for DSI Exclusive games, it'd be a shame to not use the camera.
    (hint: Pokemon Snap)

    Fucking useless. I'm so disappointed. 0.3 megapixels? Useless. The ONLY thing that sounds good to me is the DSWare, which can hopefully be hacked to run on NDSL.

    The lack of Slot-2 maybe compensated by a VC-esque service on the DSi shop channel.

    The recording is no big deal really.
    We probably will see some exclusive DSi games, but a lot of original DS games too.
    And about Pokémon Snap, I think that was already confirmed through a magazine.

    I bet that once sales peak and start to dip on the new DSi, that we will see a slot-2 expansion with the same features bundled for the old DS and DSL.

    Why you may ask? Because they will want to get people to upgrade and buy the new system, and once it looks like they have saturated the segment of the market that will upgrade, then they will want to have something for the segment that refused to upgrade to a new system at the price of $180 to go out and purchase the expansion for $50.

    Further milking their user base, and allowing the camera feature of the DSi to be used in game if they really plan to live up to the no DSi exclusive games, since they can now be played with the expansion. That or you just can't use the camera, or DL content of the new game on the old system

    I don't know why you people are going on about using the new DSI firmware on DS/L. It's pretty obvious that there isn't enough flash memory in the older DSs to hold something this complicated. The only SMALL possibility would be booting it like a regular homebrew file on a flashcart, but then it would be almost entirely useless. Maybe we could see an expansion for DS to add some of the features, but that would be a long way off.

    This guy knows what he is talking about. Business is business and Nintendo isn't out to be your friend. Their #1 primary and utmost goal is to make the stock holders happy. Nothing else.
