    DSiWare is sucking hard so far. Crippled versions of real games. The kind of stuff you get off the Nintendo Channel, except now they're charging money for it.

    If it's 2 dollars worth of game, then you may as well be satisfied with whatever you get.

    In the good old days, you would have people who are satisfied with pong or asteroid. Does that mean their tastes in game were simple, or that they were easily-amused?

    I believe this game will turn out for what it's worth.

    to today the dsi seems like a gimmick, shell out more money for what? mildly better speakers, a barely noticable screen size upgrade, better mic (for what), two very crappy cameras, and an sd slot (not even sdhc compatable). Then a processor upgrade that comparably would be like buying a modem that was 57k when u have a 56k. Seems like they took some shit out the bargain bin, screwed it to a ds, upped the price, and told you "we have dsiware" and people are supposed to jump? Until there is a standout ( a real one at that) the dsi to me is like the barry bonds of ds lites, tryin to take steroids and failing. No hall a fame for you buddy.

    No, physically impossible anyways. We need to get DSiware games dumped somehow either by on SD Card or on a new DSi specific flashcart (not the ones currently out now).

    This is great news, I already saw it a few minutes ago on WiiWare World when I was posting WiiWare releases.

    Nintendo should have been doing this from the beginning instead of bringing out the shovelware class DSiware. I want to play this and Nintendo needs to put out more quality DSiware.

    I haven't read much about the DSi tbh as I personally think its a waste of money however seeing this game makes me wonder whether its possible to convert some worthy DSi games over to the DS, I don't think it would be too difficult considering they are virtually the same machine after all with the DSi having some minor "improvements"
    slightly more off topic on the page that mentions the new phantasy star game at the top of the page that looks suspiciously like a new Time Hollow game? can any one who can actually read the magazine confirm this? as I don't read japanese

    Not entirely. Does anyone remember that homebrew app called GameUP? Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but Nintendo could have made their own flashcart (of sorts) called DSvision. Maybe Nintendo could make an app for flashcarts that was the same as the Nintendo store. Register your Wii number (or whatever they can come up with) and you can download DSiWare (without DSi-exclusive features). It's probably not going to happen, but GameUP proved that direct downloading of apps and games on normal DS's was physically possible.
