31gabe, youtube vids don`t work on here any more.
but as for the double touch ds. it does look interesting. i would hope it doesn`t get too over run with crappy lifestyle games though.

Im geissing(?) some games will only be compatible with DSi now with the double touch. They may add a VC to portable system (EX:GB, GAW) Since the GBA slot is gone

Oh, man. I don't care about a smaller size, if anything it's already too small to hold. They had to make it so small it couldn't keep the GBA slot? That is a crying shame. ;_;

It's a huge upgrade from the original DS and DS Lite, but it can't play GBA games. I'd rather them make it bigger than the original DS if it meant keeping the GBA and adding GB/GBC support (whether by another processor or a built-in emulator or what-have-you).

Ah, dang it. Slowly killing of the Gameboy line makes me sad. I already use my SP for GB/GBC games, I guess if I get this (and considering it's such a big upgrade, it'll probably be what makes me get rid of my original DS Phat) I'll have to add GBA to my SP's library and make myself a case that carries my DS and GBA SP. :/

I just wish I had one of the SP's with the brighter screen, and that the cartridge was in the top portion so I could play Tilt N' Tumble correctly. I hope they one day make a "Gameboy Anniversary Edition" with stereo speakers, a headphone jack, a cartridge slot on top, a great screen, and a larger design with buttons and a d-pad that feel like the original brick Gameboy. Sorry for ranting, but I love Gameboy. It's the only reason I keep my Gamecube hooked up now that I have a Wii, Gameboy Player is so very awesome. <3

It seems we are on the same boat, but I may end up holding onto my DS.

Eh, I wasn't much into handheld gaming until the DS, really. I basically just had a gameboy to play pokemon (silly kids)...

I got a used Gameboy Advance SP as a early birthday present, and within a week I got a DS. Since then, I have been mostly playing on handhelds, trying to pick up lost ground. Now that all used retailers practically stop all GameBoy games, I'm hoping that there will be VC games for this DSi, looking back on GameBoy...

OMG i am so buying this, ds vc, miis, digital cameras, ways to get free wii points, and so much more, the only con is the lack of the gba slot, but who plays gba anymore? this is gonna be the PERFECT  handheld ill ever play. I say the price is reasonable (about $ 178 bucks) Ohhhh man im so excited

The double-touch thing was just a rumor, it seems. Oh well, I will likely buy this anyway, for a few major reasons:

1. Internet browser

2. Since I lost my DS Lite

3. Because the video has footage of a Mario&Luigi 3

4. THere's a mii channel.

Who plays GBA anymore? you'd be suprised...


I plan on getting this, but I am dissapointed at the lack of a GBA slot, and why does it need to be smaller? I don't think it really makes a difference

I don't see where you are getting info on this Mii channel on the DS? There seems to be a game that uses Mii characters, but no channel.

This will be awesome. I don't know whether to trade in my current DS or just buy a new one. I heard it will cost about $179.99. I like the built in camera they could make where you you use voice chat and the camera for a live chat session. They also announced the Nintendo DS Shop to buy downloadable games. Wii Points will now be called Nintendo Points since both systems use them. The new DS will totally kick a$$! It will probably be a while before we see it probably about six months since the DS Lite is still selling strong.

Yeah, it appears  there is only one touch screen as usual, but even so I think it will be fun to see what more they can do with this system innovation wise.  I wonder if they'll release a separate line of exclusive games for this system, or if they'll just release one version that is playable on old and new systems, just has added bonuses on the DSi (like how you could play early GBC games on B&W gameboy, but lacking in features).  As for the lack of GBA slot, it doesn't bother me much, since I'm not a fan of Guitar Hero DS, don't use the rumble pak, and rarely play GBA games besides Warioware Twisted, which is my favorite GBA game and will be missed.  I guess we wil; have to wait and see about what this thing is really capable of.
