Meh.

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

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

so here`s the list of it`s "features".

-no more GBA games
-2.6mm thinner
-slightly larger (3.25") screens
-0.3 MP external camera
-VGA camera on the hinge pointed at the user
-SD card slot

all for the low low price of about $180
...yeah, but no.

I own the old old DS. I don`t understand the hype of moving the power button. It`s basically in the same place as it is in mine currently.

I shoulda got the psp :-/

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!

*Goes to trade in DS Lite... NOT!*

No, HelloCheese has a point- What`s the difference between this and a regular DS? Looks like it does all the same stuff.

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"

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

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

"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.

Hey, if they removed the GBA slot, does that mean we can`t play guitar hero on tour on this?!

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.

crap, I think I`ll have to buy this thing once it comes out and I have the money for it. The latest iteration of the DS actually interests me, unlike the latest PSP.

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.

well. looks the same to me. games are too short and yes, i have one. graphics are as great as i expected. the DS looks the same still...other than the camera-thing or w/e is on the front and the 3 lights instead of the 2. i dont get whats so great about it though.

"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.

There is nothing special about this. The camera and MP3 player don`t make up for it`s inability to play non-DS games.

my 9 year old overheard me playing the video (thinking that I actually was playing video games) and came over to look at it and said "mom it`s just a ds". Then he skipped off over to the other computer and continued playing the last stand 2....jeez.

Camera, MP3 player, ugh.

Gadgets you don`t need.

I have a DS because they are supposed to release Chrono Trigger for it.....and they still haven`t...so the only game I have for it is Geometry Wars....

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.

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).

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.

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.

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
