Default Nintendo shows off the new DSi

Quote:
While not being positioned as a "sequel" to the DS—this is more of a sister product—the DSi has some welcome new features, in addition to being slightly lighter and thinner. The screen is now larger, 3.25" instead of the 3" screen the normal DS enjoys, and there will be two 0.3 megapixel cameras on the hardware, on both the inside and the outside of the case. The hardware will also feature an SD card slot, as well as internal storage to store pictures and move content from the DSi to the Wii. A browser will be built-in, as well as image-manipulation and music playback software. The system will be available in Japan on November 1, for around $180. There is no release date yet for North America, although if the hardware is as import-friendly as the original DS, that may not matter for gamers willing to pay a premium.

Looks pretty cool. Finally added some useful features (i.e. browser & music playback). Not much for the hand held games, but the DS seems to do pretty well for Nintendo.

I'm waiting for the DS to get cheaper. $130 is a but rich for me. I did however buy a bunch of $20 RPG games for the DS. I'd be ready to go once I get the unit.

You bought the games for a system you don't own?

I get the unit sooner or later. But let me tell you about these RPG games. They are like collectables. Once they go out-of-print they are very expensive to get. They can get up to $50-80 bucks vs. $20-30 whne they are in print. My wife is a big-time RPG fan. I play a little bit too. She's got a huge collection.

all they've done is try to keep people from using supercards... It's that, in a new shape, with 2 crappy cameras, nothing more.

I'll keep my GBA slot, thanks.

beyond that, my iPhone has replaced my DS anyway. It's not as good game wise (it could be if some good developers got on it) but it's smaller, lighter, has a better screen, and is already in my pocket with killer browsing and music.

Is this one WPA-PSK compatible?

I don't use my DS Lite on my home network because it only supports WEP-based security.
