    Ever think that Nintendo will make a virtual console on the DS or DSi. They could make one for the DSi it will be a downloadable. And they could make one for the DS lite it will include a memory expansion pack and it will have its own Gamepack that has 2gb memory build in it like Firecard and you can download GBC games and other stuff like that on it.

    Give your ideas and thoughts about this.

    never happen as you would need to upgrade the lite firmware. so it good in the form of an idea but will make the DSi look like a smaller update.

    Everything could happen but Nintendo doesn't want to waste any money.

    I can see a DSi VC comming, but not a DS lite VC. The DSi one would actually be a very good idea for nintendo. Great way to make easy money. Just throw in a few classics like Super Mario Land, Alleyway, Frogger, Tetris, and Donkey Kong, ect. They really wouldn't cost much to code, and they'd be making tons of cash.

    VC on a DS? ha...they already tried to copy flashcarts:

    yes, that is the official flashcart from nintendo. It never went beyond japan.

    As for the DSi, 256MB of NAND space is crap, I got thumbdrives with bigger capacity than that.
    Price for VC titles start at 500 points in the USA.

    You would be spending more in cash for VC than in getting a flashcart with an emulator on it.
