    If you have real game cartridges, then go for it. You get bragging rights and...that's about it. Have fun shelling out $300AU or thereabouts. Almost the price of a new wii...

    If you don't have a DS yet: maybe....
    If you have DS(Lite): DEFINITELY MOST CERTAINLY NOT!!!

    Nah.

    The only thing that is attractive about the DSi is DSiWare, and chances are that it could be possible to play them on regular DS's, through some sort of means (I hope).

    The camera is crappy, I've read that the internet capabilities are the same as regular DS Opera so is there anything else to make it worth that stupid amount of money?

    Plus being where you are its likely to cost even more, you know how Nintendo treat you people over there.

    If you want to play real DS game paks (no flashcarts, and don't assume they'll ever work), you don't mind the lack of GBA support, it's available in a language you can deal with, and you can afford it, then absolutely. It's got bigger screens, a better D-Pad, better network capabilities, and downloadable software. Oh, and a couple of gimmicky little cameras to play with.

    I wouldn't recommend getting one until about this time, next year.
    By then we'll all know much more about what they're capable of, and whether they're worth it.

    Despite the potential of hacking on DSi. Its new functions really attracts me. And Nintendo may try to take place the ds lite with DSi in the future. In this case, I prefer to get a DSi as soon as possible.

    But don't ya think the price is a little bit too high?!

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    Or wait for a fully hack of flashcarts to work with Dsi then go for it but wait for USA released for cheaper.
