    Do you guys think it's possible whenever the DSi comes out in the US or out of country besides Japan. Will it be possible to trade your lite for a DSi? Like how you can trade colors for colors but just pay a fee? I wouldn't want to buy a whole new DS, it'll be better just to trade it like an upgrade.

    Could we trade a PS1 to a PSOne?
    A PS2 to a PSTwo?
    A Sixaxis to DualShock3?
    A DS to a DS Lite?

    Only if you find a gaming store that allows this.

    hehe...I think the DS is made for gaming...not so much as a multimedia device that already comes with a flashcard. ^^
    Anyone have any idea before this thing hits america? I might just want to sell my old DS lite before then and buy a new one for a cheaper price XP

    Damn, that sucks. Maybe Game Stop will accept that, like used console trade to new console with a fee. Oh well I just bought my DSL a couple of months ago. Like 2-3 months ago --;

    I'm sure GameStop will let you upgrade by trading your old DS Lite and a small fee (oh, and all the DS games you own, maybe a couple of your accessories, and you soul)

    How about just selling your old DSL and use the money plus some to buy the DSi? Simple.

    Better yet, keep the superior DSL and get a camera phone.
