    Nintendo has confirmed that the DSi has a number of enhancements with regards to its security. One of the main ways that Nintendo will try and battle piracy on the system is through firmware updates, in similar fashion to what Sony attempts to do with the PSP. Nintendo also revealed that the system is region locked due to differences in age ratings for certain games.

    lol, as soon as the DSi is available in USA/EUR I really think we will see a Custom Firmware, which lets us play ROM-BackUps on our DSi. And with SD-Slot they just made much easier for hackers. [​IMG]
    haha I think Nintendo owned his own ^^ xD

    I remember saying as much when they first revealed the features of the DSi. The entire system seemed like an update for publishers, not for consumers. Of course, all Nintendo has to do is market it to their fans, and their fans will lap it up like cats, as evidenced by the already intense hype for this system.

    That said, their firmware updates haven't done much in the way of combating piracy on Wii, so I don't see much promise in it on DSi where it likely will take little effort for flashcard manufacturers to make the transition over to the new system.

    Why do u think nobody wants a DSi???

    Hell the only good thing about the DSi and flashcarts is that regular DS flashcarts will possibly go down in price once DSi carts come into place.
