    I remember that on one interview with Iowata said that they are not going to drop the support for DSi and will be launching more games.

    Presumably more DSiWare, but I hope they can do a update for games (like DLC), or at least release a good DSi only game using all the features.

    I hope it does not die soon since I have not got my hands on one.

    It will still get some good titles in the next 2 years or so, but there will be way more shovelware released on it in those 2 years (and even beyond that). It won't get dropped so fast, thanks to it's massive userbase.

    I say they need to drop it (just let games that are still in-development finish up) and move things to the 3DS.

    They are going to activate the self destruct sequence when the 3ds launches.

    The way they're going to phase out the DS line is the same way companies phase out the older consoles. People will make games for the older consoles for a year or two to give people time to switch. And after that, it'll be "lights out" for the whole DS lineup.

    There will be a new Kirby game on the standard DS after the 3DS comes out and there willl probably be a few more titles by big publishers to let the console die quietly. On the GBA Square Enix's FF remakes were among the last published titles.

    Hope they won't ignore the DS/Lite/i/XL. Hope they continue making games for these consoles even when the 3DS comes out.

    You are all assuming that the 3Ds will be a success I personally think it will be a flop like so many retailers I have spoken to them about the 3Ds they say the price is to high
