    Are you sure you want the Matt Black DSi ? - I have one & it shows minor scuff marks up badly (although at least you don't get the fingermarks like the black DSlite)

    You should get the DSI it`s really cool and it`s a big upgrade from the lite. I was skeptical about it first, but when I got one it`s a pretty good upgrade if you don`t use the gba slot. (I`m using the Dsi to type this by the way.)

    I don't mean to sound too paranoid or weird or anything like that, but the DSi has two cameras so it's like you're implanting a surveillance system in your own home at your own will. Think of what anyone who could hack into the system via wireless could see. Hahahahaha. [​IMG]

    But here's the thing. I'm going to buy a rubber pouch/case, so it wouldn't be as bad.

    Also, Sumoka: True, but I might go on Yahoo answers for a poll too.

    Because most of these people on here are geeks and nerds (no offense to the rich ones, *hmm* bill gates)lol) Sorry about that, but still I need answers from people who think their posts matter and all that jazz.

    Buy everything you can.

    Anyway, the DSi is pretty sturdy and scratch-resistant, I've had it since it came out and I haven't exactly treated it like a baby. There aren't any scratches.
    BTW, I'd buy a hard case for your DSi or maybe a System Wallet by BDA, and then get Nakiworld's G-Pak DS Lite Organizer (it fits the DSi perfectly).

    Good luck with that, the DS lite has been out 3 years and (at least in the UK) it is very difficult to buy a new one for any less than the original RRP (£99.99)

    As for my opinion get a DSi, the bigger screens do make a difference and the DSiware shop has a lot of potential. (Plus the camera, music and internet features are nice)

    I still don't see the point behind the DSi, except for the DSiWare that may be coming out. But still that isn't appealing enough for me to buy it. I don't see what i DSlite with a good flashcard can't do that the DSi can, well yeah some can argue about the cameras, SD slot, and the slightly bigger screens, but did you really want them?

    I'd recommend you getting a Wii, you already have a DS !

    I personally wouldn't get one, as I actually use my Slot 2. But if you must get one, I'd pick, "Spending time with Grandma", that's not bad at all, plus they won't live forever.

    You do realize even though the DSi can use wpa there is no game capable of using WPA out yet, right?

    I like to have extra functionality but I wouldn't pay extra money, specially when I can get something like a smartphone instead to use internet and such. Or even a netbook
