    this is just a DS, but with a different port in the back.

    Stupid either way, nintendo can`t make anything decent.

    they removed the gameboy cartridge slot and added a 0.3mb camera and gave it a slightly bigger screen and made it 12% thinner
    not worth it overall

    There`s a few things diff with the DSi. they`re not too big, and im sure there`s more, but so far I can see a new port, the power is now a button under the D-Pad, not a switch on the side (better in my opinion, i hate really gettin into a game, and accidentally switching the power off cuz my hand slides up a bit) and i believe there will be a camera/webcam function from what i can see on the front cover of the DSi, and where the mic used to be on the DS Lite.

    Didn`t they just have a freaking new one out? Huge rip off. I don`t see the point in continually making "new" systems and releasing them every couple of years. How about instead, you just spend those years crazily improving on the old, and release a crazy new one every DECADE.

    Then again, I`m happy just playing Super Mario Bros. on the old Nintendo System, and Harvest Moon on the N64 when I`m feeling adventurous.

    Not impressed at all.

    I already have the DS and DS Lite. I don`t need a THIRD DS of some "new" things tacked on that I also already have. An MP3 player? iPhone (and I seriously doubt Nintendo`s MP3 player is any better than an iPod). Camera? Sony Cyber-Shot 10.1 GB Digital Camera. (DSi`s Camera? Can`t be more than 3 GB`s).

    This might be a good product to get if it is your FIRST DS. But If you already have a DS (Like I, and most people), and wouldn`t waste your money.

    "During their Fall Press Conference today, Nintendo have - as expected - announced a new version of the Nintendo DS. Called the Nintendo DSi, it eschews the GBA slot (boo!) in favour of a slight downsizing (it`s a little thinner) and a range of improvements. The handheld`s screens have been enlarged, and will now be 17% bigger (at 3.25 inches) than those found on the DS Lite. As for the rumoured additions, both have proven to be correct, with "audio enhancements" made to the handheld, while it will also now include a .3 megapixel (640x480) camera. And that`s just the start of it." - kotaku.com

    Yeah, just an "innovative" way to screw DS owners out of more money.

    What I do see about them using an SD card, and having the DS Store. I see the potential for downloadable content for games. Which could potentially be the best idea for the DS, though a lot of the games can be fun, it would be awesome to have a cool game with extra optional content...or even user made content.

    Lets see, the most notable difference is the dot in the middle of the "joint" thing with the mic. on it, which i assume is a camera? And the other thing I see is a much needed moved power button. But that`s all I can see.

    "I dont have a DS so I can`t tell the difference from the original.

    Anyone could clarify for us uninformed people?"

    It`s based on the DS Lite model, but is made even slimmer by removing the slot for GBA games/DS accessories (Guitar Hero: On Tour and Rumble Pak). There are now two cameras, one on the outer shell and one in the middle of the hinge. Pictures can be saved to an SD card via the new SD slot and transferred to the Wii, and may support other features such as music playback (I haven`t checked into this at all). And finally, the power switch has been moved from a switch on the outer right side to a button on the lower left inside corner.

    Those are the most noticeable (read: aesthetic) differences. Also, I think the stylus was thinner, but I could be wrong on that.

    "Those are the most noticeable (read: aesthetic) differences."

    I think the addition of two cameras and a card slot is rather more than aesthetic...

    Um, no one has any original design ideas anymore, do they?

    Not only does it look the same, but all they`ve added is a couple of seemingly useless cameras and a suspiciously PSP-esque SD card. I bet it just has 2 cameras for the sake of having two of something.

    But Wait, They`ve MOVED THE POWER BUTTON!! Stunning!

    Meh.
    Skip.

    Maybe if they stick a Triforce on it I`ll reconsider.

    That`s the only reason I have a Lite, afterall... >_>
