if only the other ones had a camera

  • Excerpt: So I really liked this when it first came out I thought it was so cool that it had the camera and the little voice recorder on it but unfortuanently once we got it home we realized that it only plays the new DS games and all of the other games we had were useless. Nintendo was doing good and had it figured out until this one, they added new features but took away the features that we want left on there.

Not what its cut out to be

  • Excerpt: I have purchased 3 different Nintendo DSI systems in the past 2 years and this product although is more attractible to younger kids is not in my opinion made to stand for children under 10 . It has nice features but the game play slot gets broken too easy , if even a little bit of dust gets in the slot you will not be able to play games on it anymore and cleaning it out won't fix the problem.

Microphone didn't work

  • Summary: Microphone didn't work so some games couldn't function properly. It would have been nice to know what was working & what wasn't even if it is 2nd hand.

Looked good, but a disappointment

  • Summary: We bought this DSi for our granddaughter's birthday/ Christmas present. When we gave it to her, we discovered that it was a model licensed for sale in USA, Canada and Sout America. As such, it meant that we could not log into anything but the Nintendo US website for any updates or additionla software, which meant everything was paid in dollars! Also we discovered that if a game was licensed for Europe, it would not play on the DSi.

Don't bother, there are better consoles available.

  • Excerpt: Although the Nintendo DSi is good in many ways, it has many major fall backs. The first of these is the graphics: they are terrible. Although I didn't expect them to quite as good as the iPod Touch with the retina display, they have really let me down. All the text on the screen is often pixelated, along with the graphics. Sometimes this pixelation can get so bad that some text is impossible to read. Another problem with the DSi is the limited choice of games.

DSi Console in Black

Hilmi, CompareStorePrices

  • Excerpt: on some posts but still nothing it keeps ginivg me the same problem. Is the problem my controller, the tv set up (if so how do I fix this problem because I don`t know how to access the HDMi setup screen on the playstation because the controller isn`t responding. When I plug in the controller I notice that all 4 lights on the top flash and then light number one will be the only one lit up but then I notice it starts to flash. So maybe I`m not pairing it correctly.

DSi - a pointless addition?

jamesbell..., Ciao
12 August 2009
  • Excerpt: "DSi - This is basically an exact replica of the forerunner DS, with one pointless addition. A camera. If there was one thing I'd say needed to added to the DS, it would be a bigger screen and better graphics. Not a poor quality camera. The new DSi is exactly the same as the older DS in technical terms - ie It has the same graphics, sound and speed. Surely if you wanted to take pictures and fiddle with them to make them funny you would use an actual ...
  • Pros: Appeals to the majority as it is simple to use
  • Cons: The camera is a pointless addition  -  DSi is exactly the same specs as DS

Good console, but unsatisfying display

Obakasan, Ciao
15 May 2009
  • Excerpt: "There are many of topclasses games that we can choose to play in this console. For the RPG lovers, there are many game ROM available with good story telling and nice to play. But the problem is, we can't get overall display of things when we play some games. For example, when I play Yu Gi Oh in this console, the face of monster is unclear and the card is difficult to see in detail. This is because of the 3.5" display monitor. I think it's too small. ...
  • Pros: Many choices of good game ROM
  • Cons: The display is unclear

Nintendo DSi

rodrigo affonso, Bondfaro
20 June 2013
  • Summary: O Nintendo DSi é, sem dúvidas, uma plataforma de jogos que está ultrapassada. A variedade de jogos tem cada vez mais diminuído e os gráficos não são bons se comparados com as outras plataformas. No entanto, pode ser uma boa opção para uma pessoa que não tem dinheiro para comprar algo mais caro. É principalmente direcionado às crianças e é resistente.
