The Nov 1 date is Japan only... everywhere else is a mid to late 2009 release...

More details;

Faster WiFi (less lagging in DS games) for downloading DSware/DSVC (virtual console, gba, gb, gbc, and possibly virtual boy)

Wii Points will be renamed Nintendo Points, and can be used with the DSi as well.

SD card slot for saving pictures/DSware

brand new DS firmware with Wii type interface

All we wanted, is a little graphical boost so we stop getting sneered at by the PSP fanboys.
And what do we get? 12% bigger screens to show off those jaggies off better with...

There will be DSi only games that will take advantage of the higher resoultion (300,000 pixels per screen)...

Think Super Mario Bros. Deluxe on GB and GBC, or Zelda Seasons/Ages where it knew if it was in a GBC or GBA...

DS Flash carts will be disabled in the DSi, just like GBA Flash Carts were disabled when the DS came out...

No worries!

Hmmm that's not proven yet... unless I detect a hint of sarcasm in your statement.

Yes, that was sarcasm... dripping sarcasm...

Were the GBA Flash carts disabled in the DS? If so, how the hell am I playing Mother 3 in english? lol

DS Flash cards will be just fine... if they break the flash cards, then 99% of the original DS games will also break!

Hmmmm, apparently flash carts don't work on the DSi, at least the current generation, or perhaps the current firmware. :scratch:

Wow... I'm actually suprised that flash carts are disabled on the DSi... I will admit I was wrong...

But if you read, SOME REAL DS GAMES WILL ALSO NOT WORK NOW AS A RESULT... which is going to piss some people off... if they can't play their games, Nintendo is going to get sued in the US if it's not fixed by the time it gets released here!

hmmm, well i know that on newer ds lites dosent let R4 work as well ???

but dw im pretty sure there will be a way to mod the DSi. there's always been a way. but i think the nintendo dudes are pretty pissed about these modchips where everyone keeps downloading roms. but who cares, coz the nintendos never do that "update firmware" thing so there's always a loophole in something where we can mod.

but could some one try use a dsi and an original game??

I hope they will be able to hack it, look on the bright side, they have lots of time to hack it before it comes over to Europe and USA. Unless ur thinking of getting a Jap DSi (Which has only the Japanese language on )

Im hoping they make a SD hack! I just prefer it that way :S, as i really like the DSi Menu :D

is it really worth getting?

11-02-2008, 11:36 PM
i hope so. well the camera is pretty convincing. which reminds me, can we take videos with the camera???

Yay! Yasu hacked it (creator of YS Menu ( i think lol ) ) He has managed to play this simple homebrew on it :D. Still we dont know how he did it : /

KuroH1
11-05-2008, 04:00 PM
ummmm howd u find out about this? wat homebrew was it?

Guest

It's been posted on every major DS site...

he ran the "Hello World" program... just had "Hello World" text bouncing around the screen... it's the first program anyone runs on a hacked console anymore... just as proof of concept that it's hackable...

Now the real wait begins... how long until the DSShop opens up, and then how long until it's cracked and people are downloading DSWare from .torrents, and a DSWadManager is released...

ahhh, the fun of the wait...

Jibib

You call waiting fun o_O

We all have to wait anyway, if you want a English DSi.

Im hoping that by the time the DSi comes out over here, it will be fully hacked xD

KuroH1

YES IT CAN BE HACKED

or i hope it can

i heard that the ACEKARD 2 (the new one) can be used on the DSI

its actually called ACEKARD 2 i

its got like major fixes

Yeah http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.18728 has the Acecard 2i AK2i it in stock as of today. Can't wait for the DSi to come out in the USA. Should be interesting.

O nice! Personally I think they'd have an entirely new system by then, but maybe they might just give up... Seeing as it didn't take all that much time to crack, in fact I think the Lite held out longer than the DSi.

KuroH1
12-11-2008, 04:30 AM
i think it took longer coz the ds was a whole new system back then while as the dsi is sorta similar to the ds as it also uses same sized cartridges

the dsi comes out in spring

I can't wait for the M3i Real to come out! However, do you think the M3i Real will be backwards-compatible with the DS Lite as well? And what about the DS Phat?

PharaohsVizier
02-16-2009, 08:37 PM
It seems to me that the trend is indeed to be completely backwards compatible. Just not price friendly. :)

Skyline969

Haha, yeah, definitely not price-friendly. And to think I'm on a very strict budget... I'm gonna be saving couch change for a loooooong time before I can get an M3i and a DSi.
