    so i can NOT wait another 13 days..... this is killing me XD at least thats in england.... usa will proberly get sooner.... or do you guys have it yet?
    well, i am getting my DSi on release (its been pre ordered for months XD)
    THEY LOOK SO COOL.....
    let me know what you guys think of the DSi, me personly i like the subtle changes in the design. plus the oppertunitys (cant spell to save my life) that a camera can bring to games:
    1) your face in games
    2) PS2 style EYE-toy type games
    3) no need for a camera any more.... the camera on here is really good from what i heard
    4) lets face it..... it wont be long untill the mega genius's behind the likes of the R4, M3 and the rest of the card makers start on the DSi (i know some already have)

    theres just so much still to come for the DS..... and i for one cant wait.

    Somewhere in this potatoland!
    I get one [​IMG] (Already have a Japanese one)

    Also got -> AK2i / R4i Ultra / DSTTi / EZFlash Vi

    The big questions will be:

    - Has Nintendo altered the firmware on the European and US hardware to lock out those flashcards.
    - How soon before an update comes out that will lock out all flashcards currently for DSi available if not.

    The other question will be:

    - How long before DSiWare will be hacked!

    I really want to get the DSi

    I already Have my AK2i

    What the chance of the FW being a different Version (would they release a new FW before releasing it for Japan DSi)

    are you still getting one if FW is not compatible with AK2i

    I can't really decide but I think I might end up getting one eventually. I already own 1 original DS and 2 lites but somehow have the feeling that I can't resist when it finally hits the stores.

    No and heres why:

    NO GBA SLOT [​IMG]

    Locks Out Flashcarts

    Both of the Cameras on the thing aren't all that great

    No Video Support

    No Rumble Support

    Expansion Pak Feature Removed (Guitar Hero Grip [​IMG])

    and last but not least... Its NOT SHINY!

    Which is exactly why I would hate Nintendo if they eventually went to DSi only. I'm already on my third DS (1 original, 2 lites) I really don't want to have to get a new one. My parents might start to get worried.

    1.who gives a shit it a ds not a gba
    2.thats why acekard 2i and dstti are out and im pretty sure m3 cyclo ds and all the other flashcarts will make a dsi cart
    3.who gives a shit if the cameras aren't that great they dont need to be and atleast it has cameras
    4.no video?? what the hell are you talking about?? flashcarts could let you watch videos and your not so smart if you didnt know flashcarts came out for the dsi
    5.no rumble?? whats so great about that. i doubt many people even used that and there are barely any games that work with rumble anyway
    6.guitar hero is not that fun

    Dude! You need to chill out... sure while I did state many of the cons the DSi has its because I was explaining why I am not going to get a DSi solutions are found around many of the things I listed.. Seriously... You like flaming people or are you just insane.

    i won't get one when it comes out i'll wait a week or two to see how flashcarts come along about the updatable fw unless the browser needs an update to work i just won't update. I don't use gba slot and thought that after loosing the dust cover it just got annoying and i kind of like the bigger screen but mostly cuase my lite broke.

    Oh and another reason to not get the DSi is because the battery life is very greatly decreased.

    only if you have it on the highest brightness
    and they did not say greatly decreased they just decreased it by a little
