I'm looking to buy a tablet, but the dsi killed my wallet!

I'm buying a wireless router from dx soon, anyway, I was wondering if there is a tablet for the ds, but similar to the bamboo with pressure sensing and shortcut keys. I've seen win2ds, but it looks REEAAAALLLY glitchy. And colors doesn't suit all my tablet-based purposes.

Are you wanting to use the DS as a PC tablet? I'm a bit confused here.

The DS touch screen is touch sensitive, but it's way too small to be useful as a PC tablet. Your only real option here is you can use some of the homebrew apps to draw on the DS, but that's about it.

When i say this, I mean I'd like to see a program to control the cursor on screen similar to the way the opera browser does using a similar method to win2ds. Basically Bottom screen shows full view, top zooms, L or R switches the function of the bottom screen to that of the top screen and allows drawing and using the d-pad to move the zoomed in area, with the abxy buttons as shortcuts. Handled by an app for the pc that sends information (like win2ds) to the ds.

nope, none, short of Win2DS or one of the other apps like that.

the DS just wouldn't function well as a tablet. The screen is tiny, and also the pressure sensitivity is not nearly as advanced as a tablet would be.

even if it was developed it would not be very good to work with at all.

and also most tablet pcs have multi touchable touch screens.
so you can use two fingers to draw on MSPaint or something.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
