    According to IGN, "multiple sources close to Nintendo" are telling that the Nintendo DSi is coming to american shores in April 4, at a price of $179.99. That's cheaper than the japanese one! Not bad if true.

    I thought I saw prices converted, which were that exact same price into USD from Yen. Oh well, if you're absolutely sure, I guess it's valid.

    Also nice to know the release date, pretty close to my b-day! [​IMG]

    Still, I think it's to expensive..

    And I wonder if I'll be able to use extra features here in Croatia, if I import it (from America, or UK)..Somehow, I doubt it..

    i still think it should have been called the DSG because it packs the gimmicks. i hope it pushes the cost of the ndsl down (although i know it will probably stay at $120), i'd love to pick up another 1 or 2 for later in life.

    I still don't understand why someone would pay 60 bucks more for a shitty camera and a new menu.
