It's all very well Nintendo DS's are £80 or more right now but because they've sold so many, eventually (even if it's a pre owned console) it'll go down in price - ALOT.

Just how low do you think you'll be able to pick on up eventually? I'd like one, but only to run 1-3 games so i refuse to pay £80 for one. £50 and maybe i would.

But how low do you see the DS price falling to, new or used.

Seriously?? They plan to release DSI ONLY games???

If they do, i think that will turn Nintendo owners over to the PSP (which is very under-rated IMO).

Yep and supposably new DS games will have ENHANCED graphics on the DSi so people may dump it for that too, they do know how to rip off there loyal fans.

Hey its Nintendo... look what they did with the Wii.
like one game a year!

Well i don't know what to say, i cant believe Nintendo! They sure do know how to make £ from their customers i'll give you that.

If they released a new model Xbox 360 or PS3 that didn't play newer 360 or PS3 games, it would get slated, but with the Wii, it's not really mentioned much, (first i've heard of it and i'm a fairly hardcore gamer)

They really wont go down much I dont think.

What are you lot on about ? FFS, seriously, if a game uses the cameras on the DSi, how on earth do you expect it to run on the older DS versions, really?
Nintendo are not stupid, they wont cut off a revenue stream if they can help it, they will make games that will have extra features etc on the DSi, thus giving you a reason to update your system, but they will not make games exclusively for DSi unless as I said, they utilise something that isnt available for the DS, don't forget, with the DSi the GBA slot has been removed, so those GH fret controllers and the pedometer for that health game wont work on DSi.
As for the PSP, when they have some good, worthwhile games to play, maybe and just maybe, they might sell a few!!
if you recall, Sony released Skype for the PSP Slim and Lite, refusing to do it on the older Phat model, now that takes the biscuit, as it was shown by Team Noobz and Fanjita, the Skype app could quite happily run on an older model PSP, so they made their own!!

No, don't be daft :)
DSi doesnt really have much to sway it at the moment, wont be for another year or so till it comes in to it's own.
With around 100 million DS users on the planet, I doubt Nintendo and it's affiliates are about to stop production of games, just because it's younger brother has sold a few units :p
Stop worrying, get some good games and enjoy it, thats what it is for after all.

We'll wait and see. If they do make DSi only games then there will still be the older games on DS to buy, but it will be a marketing ploy... many people will want the newer games and if so will have to shell out for the Dsi. Nintendo could have made the DSi itself WORTH spending moolah on by improving the camera etc if they wanted us all to buy a new system straight away.

I hate when buyers are manipulated by companies, its so unfair! Okay, so I sound like a teenager, but really!!! Lets have a bit of GOOD designing for a change.

Indeed, I will agree with that, the DSi is a slight revision, kinda like how Sony bring out a new PSP version almost every year now (talk of a PSP 4000 sries coming later this year, god help us :p)
But yeah, eventually there will be DSi only games that are good, but the same could be said for anything, eventually there will only be Bluray films available that you cant get on DVD any more, there will be PS3 games you cant get on Xbox and vice versa, this is a thing companies do, if you want all the latest stuff you have to pay the money, that is, unfortunately, the capitalistic world in which we live :(

My daughter is 11. Her favourite games on nintendo are My Sims and anything animal-related.

Her latest game was "Professor Layton and the Curious Village"... it's all puzzles and she loves it.

I'm sure your daughter will love her nintendo.

Mine was bugging me to buy the DSi soon as it came out until she realised she has a camera on her mobile phone that is literally ten times better than is included on the new DSi. Now she's not interested in buying one untill they improve it.

Hope this helps x x

Also, "New Super Mario Bros" is worth getting, perhaps "Animal Crossing" as the person abocve said, "Proffesor Layton" is another very good game, "Mario Kart DS" also :
That little lot should keep her more than amused :p
