    I found some sweet deal for the Special Edition Pokemon DSi and I plan to get it.......in three - four weeks. T_T

    With my Black DSi currently on it's way to Nintendo for a screen replacement, as well as my Red Lite (which I hate) on it's way to my sister's house when I get my black ds back, I'll need something that can replace my lite, and I've chosen the special edition DSi.

    I have no interest in the 3DS. I think it is a complete rip off and the launch titles don't interest me in the slightest, so I am going to buy this DSi to replace my Lite. What I am wondering though is how long do Nintendo keep these kind of special edition consoles in production for? As I don't know if/what I'll have to pay for my DSi screen replacement.

    Like I said before, I have no interest in the 3DS right now so it would be great if people don't tell me to wait and save up.

    This makes no sense at all.

    I think he meant to say he has no interest in the 3DS. xD

    Ummm... still doesn't make sense...
    Honestly if you don't want the 3DS for those reasons I don't see why you should get a DSi...or any Nintendo DS at all.

    I lol'd so hard that you're interested in a DSi but think the 3DS is a ripoff.
    Get a DSlite. The DSi is useless. You pay more for absolutely no benefit.
    and i'm saying that with my DSi sitting beside me.

    Eh, if I go with the deal I found, I will be paying roughly the same price as new DS Lite (its minus the games and I already have Black so..).

    I also think the DSi is better. All the DS Lite has is GBA compatibility and I hate GBA games on the DS Lite. They feel better played on an actual GBA, and I have four of those.

    I'll just have to hope for the best.

    I am pretty sure that deal will be sticking around for a couple weeks though.

    (I'm only getting the DSi, as I already have the games).

    The Mystery Dungeon + Black version is gone so i assume you're talking about this.

    I doubt it'll last...

    Don't get a DSi, for a few bucks more, grab yourself an XL. The screens suck you into the game more, and the sound is A LOT better.

    DSi XL is a brick, I prefer the standard.

    There also isn't a special edition Pokemon DSi XL. :/

    Nope, not that but that is pretty good.....

    I'm getting the DSi on its own, though if they're gone by the time I have the cash I'll probably get that and sell the game.....gah >_>.
