PostSubject: Nintendo DSi Review its more then a camera?   Mon Apr 13, 2009 12:45 am

Hey guys I managed to get my hands on a nintendo Dsi this weekend. No I did not buy one and I don't think I can justify the $200 price tag for this thing. I mean all it really is, is an upgraded DS, its not a new system that can play DSi exclusives. Its pretty much an upgraded DS again, I doubt there are any games that actually need the Camera at least not yet and I can see DSi exclusives due to the camera issue though. The upgrades you get with the DSi are a camera, and an SD card slot which I have yet to figure out what its for I mean its got internal memory, and the games save on cartridges, so you don't need memory, the only thing I see the SD card used for is to store pictures taken & audio recorded on the DSi, and upload them on to your computer. A bonus from the DSi you get is that you no longer need to buy separate software for the web browser, the DSi has a built in web browser I never used the past one so I don't know the difference. Now for the what actually came to see the camera right? The Camera itself is actually pretty good when taking a picture its very sensitive the slightest move will blur the picture's outcome but the DSi fixes that with its own software and un-blurs the photo for which is nice of nintendo to plan ahead. The DSi also includes editing software so you can mess around with photos its basically what you get with a web cam in a laptop. The biggest problem I have with this thing besides the price tag is you CAN'T Play GBA games on it, this is a big disappointment for me, thats why the DS lite was so great was because it was backwards compatible, and because theres no GBA slot I can't Migrate my pokemon from Leaf Green To platinum. Yeah were not done another Problem its got is it doesn't recognize my R4 Card which means I cant download roms anymore I have to purchase games, there is however a solution to this there are now R4's with Dsi compatibility. The DS is nearly Identical to the DS lite, except its a bit slimmer and lighter, and they removed the glossy finish which the DS lite had, every thing else looks pretty much the same, they moved some buttons around and theres a different feel to the start&select buttons as apposed to the DS lite. Yes the DSi is here and its new but, I can't say buy one just yet, or to trade in that DS lite for one of these things, yes the Camera is cool, and yes it pisses me off that I will never be able to catch bulbasaur in pokemon platinum unless I play on my DS lite, to be honest this thing is just the DS lite with added crap to it, no new gameplay added (possible camera exclusives), it feels like an after thought, and just another attempt to extend the life of the DS, If you already have a DS lite stick with that, but if you don't have Nintendo DS at all you may want to wait for the price of the DSi to drop 50 or 60 dollars or you could get a DS lite either its a good Idea.

Free is such a broad word.... I'd say they can be free, but they are also illegal.
