Nintendo is determined to rake as much profit as they can again.

  • Excerpt: I'm just going to tell you right now - don't buy this handheld. If you don't want to read this full review, then just go with these words - the 3DS is coming. Why buy this when the successor to the DS will be here in just two months with more features and full backwards compatiblity? Anyway, back to this review. The price is simply too much. You are losing on GBA functionality, only have about half the battery life now, and the DSiware store is horribly lacking.

Ok, but a LOT of flaws.

  • Summary: Well, the interface and hardware are near perfect. The new menu is awesome. The camera is average (maybe a megapixel), but there has to be a BOATLOAD of light to get a smooth update rate. I love the Facebook uploader option. The touchscreen is VERY responsive. The touchscreen interface is ok. In some games it's a little weird and awkward. Now, some of the BAD. The internet sometimes doesn't like to connect right.

Nintendo DSi Handheld Video Game System Review

  • Summary: I would recommend purchasing the DS Lite over the DSi because it is cheaper and the new things in the DSi are not worth the premium price.
  • Pros: Good screens, large selection of games, good battery life
  • Cons: Not a worthy upgrade if you already own a DS, expensive, outdated technology

  • Excerpt: The Nintendo DSI is an interesting addition to the Nintendo family, but it is limited as to what websites it can access. Since the DSI cannot have adobe flashplayer the number of website that you can access is sadly limited.

  • Excerpt: We bought this Dsi 2 years ago(2009) for my sons Christmas present, he loves it although I think it almost has too many functions that he is not quite ready for, I thought he would grow into it. He is a video gamed obsessed! So when we are on the go it is nice to have it can almost become for of a nusience than a help for us because once he is on it we can't get him off... not only does it change his attitude but I think it seriously strains his eyes!

  • Excerpt: I recently purchased a brand new Dsi during Janurary because my cousin said good things about it. I purchased the Light blue Dsi from a retail chain for the price of $169.99. I also have a psp 3000 so I feel like these two systems are similair in terms of what you get and the use of each system. First of all I think the price for the Dsi is a little pricy since The ds lite is $129.99 which is $40 more.

  • Excerpt: I bought this for my daughter who is 6 years old and was practically begging me to get her this.  And like most of the toys I buy for her, she played with it for a few weeks and now rarely ever plays it.  I also have one for my son, who is 7, he plays with it all the time.  Honestly It is me who plays it the most.  I like to keep it in my purse for when I have to wait for the kids somewhere or in the waiting room for appointments.

  • Excerpt: My sister got a dsi for Christmas last year. I myself had wanted one as well, but now that I've seen the actual product, I am starting to have second thoughts. The features Nintendo put into it are great; you can take snapshots, record video and sound, go on the internet, etc. However, I was highly dissapointed to discover that they took out the feature that allows you to play GBA games. As was my sister.

  • Excerpt: The DSi is a very nice console, but the L and R buttons got stuck after week 7. Which I guess isn't that bad, but by week 9 I had to use my waaranty because the touch screen broke. Also, all those years of GBA games are now gone and some of the best games are now only usable by older consoles. Personally, I'd keep the DS Lite until the 3DS comes out, but will have cons to. One of them being very short batteries while in maximum 3D effects, for shorter travels.
