    I want to get a lime green japanese DSi (I love the colour so much, lol. And it's 150 dollars cheaper than in the stores)
    But I'd also like to be able to play DSiWare.
    I don't particularly want to have to pirate english dsiware so I can play (if DSiWare games are pirateable at all), and would happily pay for it. But it seems that it is all region locked. Is there any way to unlock the region without pirating?


    Thank you!

    I want one of these myself. Where are you getting it from? As far as DSi ware goes, it's not there yet but it's only a matter of time at this point.

    There is no pirating or modification of DSiware at all right now (in relation to running it).

    I was thinking of getting a yellow shell for an XL. It would cost a lot more for me to import. I'm also holding off on buying one until the 3DS comes out. I hope by then they'll be some good sales.

    I really would prefer to just be able to buy them though.

    It wouldn't even be an issue if they released the lime green DSi in the west, or even perhaps didn't region lock DSiWare. =/




    I guess I gotta weigh up my need to be unique and my want to play some of the sweet dsiware games that have come out LOL

    I own a japanese DSi LL.

    No matter where you live: You can ONLY connect to the japanese Dsi-Store! And ONLY buy japanese Dsi Ware. AND you need japanese Nintendo Points to do that!

    Keep that in mind!
