    I sure am. I know it will be hacked within a year. It's the only reason I haven't bought one already.

    Well I'm holding out for many reasons. If the DSi does get hacked I think I will be more likely to get one. I just got my DS lite a couple months ago. I think I can hold out.

    You're waiting for it, I'm waiting for it, and others are waiting for it. [​IMG] I don't apply to the before you buy one part.

    I'll be getting one regardless. When I have the money, of course!

    Only £81 to go...

    I'll only get a DSi if I'll be able to flash the Japanese firmware to US.

    ... or if that damned dark blue color comes to the US. Whichever happens first.

    Yeah, I was going to wait. I changed my mind at the last minute and got one anyway. I figured if it does get hacked they may block it with an hardware update before I can get one. Also it was the last day Gamecrazy was offering the $90 DS Lite trade-in deal. I haven't used my flashcart since, except for transferring a save to my GTA : CW cart using my broken DS Lite.

    The reason I am waiting is because I can see the future potential in the dsi's sd card slot. Nothing else the dsi has appeals to me. I'm positive that once it is hacked, the sales for it will double.

    In the US its $169.99 plus tax. At Gamecrazy you could trade-in your DS Lite for $90 off a DSi. So it would only be $79.99 plus tax. Add in the free $10 in Nintendo Points its only $69.99.

    Every DS pirate in the world is waiting for the DSi to be hacked. Many of us are refusing to buy a DSi until that happens.

    Holy fuck $200+ in Canada? All the reason why to keep a DS Lite lol or order one from somewhere cheaper.

    Canada always get the worst deals, with awful delivery times. [​IMG]

    In fact, I ordered my Guilty Gear game last month from amazon, and it apparently won't be shipped until June 2nd.... I tried to find it in my local stores, and none of them have it. Sigh.....

    $200 in Canadian Dollars so it's pretty much works out the same as the States after the conversion ($169 USD).
