View Full Version : Are you getting the DSi?

04-27-2009, 01:19 AM
Title's pretty self-explanatory.

- Contains a camera, photo editing software, audio recording stuff, and an SD card slot
- Online shop that works much like the Wii Shop Channel
- Slightly smaller than the DS Lite
- Screens are slightly bigger

- Does not play GBA games
- More expensive

And probably some other things I've forgotten...

Personally, I don't like the tradeoff involving no backwards compatibility, so unless some good DSiWare comes out, I'll hold onto my money and use my DS Lite.

Hooray for a glorious overload of needless choices!

Well, I'm fine with my old ds. I can do pretty much all of the stuff with my computer and wii. I don't need to spend 170 just for something I already have.

04-27-2009, 12:04 PM
Not a chance! I still play my emerald and it would be a waste of money to buy DSi of you already had DS.

No chance. I don't have the money to go buy a second DS that has less features than my Lite. I heart my DS Lite and not the DSi.
*grumpy face*

04-27-2009, 12:38 PM
If I can find my old DS I can sell it and buy the DSi, but I'm still thinking if I should or not.

04-27-2009, 12:56 PM
No, because the cons are too vital for any of the pros to make up for it.

No, I really don't feel like wasting my money on something that only has a few minor improvements compared to the old system.

04-27-2009, 01:11 PM
Yeah, I bought mine already. Wasn't planning on it, but my old DS was scratched up and the LR and X button weren't working. Plus both my brothers have a DS so I could use there's for GBA games.

04-27-2009, 01:42 PM
Yeah, along with Platinum, hopefully :tongue2:

Cons:- Does not play GBA games

Preeeeeeecisely. I wouldn't want to switch between two handhelds just to play GBA and DS games.

I'm not planning on it, as I don't actually like it, but I'll probably end up getting one if I get good grades this year anyway. Oh well.

04-27-2009, 07:07 PM
No thank-you. My friend has one and the camera and the whole edit photos thing is the only thing of any intrest, but it's magikrap on the DS, cameras awful. As for editing photos, you can do it on the computer. Plus, the amount of times I've walked into a GAME shop to hear people complaining their DSi isn't playing their DS games.
Bit of a dodgy purchase to me. .___.''

Yes, I'm planning on getting one, only because my current DS (I've had it since it first came out in '07), it literally falling apart. The hinge is broken, the L button doesn't work half the time, and the bottom screen is cracked. ;_; DS lites are pieces of CRAP.
But, I'm not going to toss it, I want to be able to play GBA games. But, then again, I have my old game boy advance from way back. :3

04-27-2009, 08:39 PM
I bought the DSi two days after it came out.

04-28-2009, 01:42 AM
None of the Pro's interest me as I can do more than half of it with only a computer.

04-28-2009, 04:59 AM
Just got it yesterday, and I already downloaded a lot of songs on my SD Card.
I have to admit, Nintendo has done yet another great job!
Btw, Mine's black. :P

Geh, sorry. x_x;; I only checked the first page like a moron...

04-29-2009, 09:47 PM
No, I don't want to pay for it, if I won one in a contest though I'd use it

04-29-2009, 09:52 PM
No, if you already have the DS / DS Lite, there is really no point of getting it :/

...Unless the last one breaks

Ellie @ True that. My cousins bought it, and it won't play half of their games xDD The games are in good condition too. The DSi doesn't play multi-game chips either >__>

Acekard_2i would be your first step towards pirating.

Yeah, I'll probably get the DSi. I'd like to have internet on my DS. n_n
Plus my DS Lite is in pretty bad condition. p_p

04-29-2009, 10:34 PM
Nope, seems pointless. Looks the same as the lite to me.

DSi is gay!!! :hate: :hate: :hate:

Yes; I will be getting it for my birthday.

And this thread was posted four days after the previous thread (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=96334), which is still currently active, by the way. =/

I would since I lost my old DS Phat. But I really dont think its worth the money. Maybe I would just stick with the DSLite

05-01-2009, 09:34 PM
I would, but I don't have the money. My DS broke its spines, so its about to fall apart.

05-01-2009, 09:37 PM
don,t know. i might but i don,t like the fact that they removed the gba compatibility and replaced it with two useless cameras

05-01-2009, 09:38 PM
Depends. I plan on buying M&L rpg 3 and Starforce 3 when they come out, so if they come out before i get the money for a DSi i'm buying them. Other than that, i'll probably save up and sell my broken DS to buy it.

I would, but I don't have the money. I can always use my friend's one, because I wanna play that WarioWare game and play around with the camera. That's all. lol.
