Hey guys

I recently heard of a new DSi update coming out on December 1...has anyone else heard of these? Also it apparently has a new browser on which you will be able to visit a YouTube DSi site, DSiTube. Can anyone else confirm these? And what flashcarts are most likely to first combat this update, if they prove true?

EDIT: Apparently the new browser is called iDSi Browser.

Oh really? Your birthday is Dec 1?

Happy early Birthday!

But wouldn't it be a bad thing? It's bound to contain new anti-flashcart measures.

Can't provide one Jacob, I heard it by word of mouth... that's why it's mostly speculative

DSiTube? iDSiBrowser? Sounds like BS to me. There was also the rumor that 1.4 wouldn't come til late Dec. and it'd have avi and wmv playing support.

Well, I'm not sure myself. I only created this thread to see if anyone else heard what I did. Otherwise, we have but to wait till Dec 1 to find out.

Somewhat, yes. Why?

Rumors spread my word are probably 99% chance to be fake. I suppose you heard it from your friend who read some random comment on youtube that said the commenter's dad worked for Nintendo and confirmed this BS?

Um, it wasn't exactly that way, but some people on the mIRC chat I participate in said there will be a new update.

I never said I believed it, I just wanted to know if anyone else heard of it, or can confirm it. Since I myself also can't find any evidence, we will have to wait till Dec 1 to find out.

Yeah all we could do is just wait until Dec 1st but don't get your hopes up.

If you got it from an IRC channel you were probably just trolled, in other words they were just messing with you.

Trust me, half the people in #dsidev will tell you that Nintendo is working on a new handheld with 5 screens if you ask them.

first of all, the DS can't handle flash.
that's final.

second, the dsitube website is a .webs domain, so someone stupid just decided to make it. Nintendo has their own servers.

third, why would you rename the internetbrowser...

oh, and happy birthday :sunny:

1. That's why they would make a seperate channel that would directly read the video files from youtube (like the iphone's youtube app) and bypass all the icky flash.

2. That's not what's being talked about here, he was just asking if he meant something LIKE that. DSitube has been around since like April.

3. Because it's a rumor.

Eh, still...

I'll put it this way, the Wii browser can barely touch flash lite.

And at the rate nintendo's going, any form of video-media isn't going to come until moonshell 87.00 is out :P

It was just a rumor. I guess now I'll look up stuff I hear to verify it. PV, please lock the topic, we have no use for further discussion on the issue.

Also, Happy Birthday!
