Alls i hear people say is that its gonna be a portable perve machine and to be honest, a waste of time.
it's barely gonna be any better with a miner CPU increase - 2 touch screens? i barely used the one.... - Slighty bigger screens even though its keeping the same resolution from previous DS's which will weardown the battery at a quicker pace and 2 cameras, Why cameras is beyond me....

i would rather just see alot of games being ported/remade for the DS then this new DSi
plus the DSi will no longer support GBA :( no more Golden Sun for me then if i do buy one (and lack of Guitar hero DS support as well don't forget)
don't say keep your DS lite - im not carrying around a DS lite AND DSi - wtf at that?

the only thing interesting about the DSi is going to be the DSiWare - where you can buy and download all the games from there official Wii Shopping channel - However, not much is said about the GBA titles, only DS - rather annoying, but we'll have to wait and see

Theres a Slot 1 card that allows for GBA emulation, but that will be dead with the new DSi as a new one would have to be remade for it to work again - ANNOYING....:(

i would love ff8 to be ported for the DS just with FF3's graphics prehaps or Wild Arms :P << i'd buy those over the new DSi anyday

--------------------

So whats your verdict on the new DSi?
Are you also annoyed with the removal of the GBA slot?
Do you even see a purpose in the cameras? (We all carry mobile phones with the same or better resolution then the DSi's and besides alls i see is shit software that allows you to photoshop the pictures prehaps << fun for what 5mins? *yawn* Video storage i hear you say? i barely use my phone for video, why will the DSi suddenly become more special with it's own?)

im still not sure if i want one, im gonna  wait till my mates get one first then rate it that way - DSi just hasn't grabbed me, but for the time being has kept me wondering......
Maybe you guys can win me over.........?

Already have one reserved. I don't mind that there will not be a GBA slot.
I'm liking the fact that i'll be able to hide it in my pocket and take it to work so i can listen to music or take pictures.

I plan on getting it.

Nope.  I have older hardware that can play GBA games.  Shouldn't you be annoyed that the Nintendo DS cannot play Gameboy and Gameboy Color games?

Do you even see a purpose in the cameras?
There are probably going to be some use for it.  It is more of a social thing.

 Video storage i hear you say?
I wasn't aware the DSi could store videos.  You mean record videos and stuff?



The advantage to the DSi is it does have more storage than the average phone.
