Wait for the 3DS!

agreed. price will drop further

Everyone also said that the DSi would drop in price when the DSi XL came out.

It dropped by what £20?

Nintendo aren't stupid.

I'm personally waiting for the 4ds.

I'll assume this is some sort of algebra and that you are referring to a new Nintendo hand held with 6 screens.

I don't understand this 3D craze. All examples of 3d technology I've come across recently be it TVs or films have been disappointing. If you are in the market for a portable game system you won't find anything much better for this price. Have some heat

when is that out then?

Anyone know if the Acekard 2i still works with these, or only on DSi's with older firmware?

The problem is, the DS has been around for 6 years (!!!) now and there are no new games being made for it. Nintendo and all the other developers have moved onto the 3DS. If you've been waiting all this time then go for it, there's a big backcatalogue but there'll be nothing new.
The 3DS screen makes its own 3D 'hologram' effect in full colour with no need for glasses using two screens that overlap each other (like a lenticular ruler or poster) and the effect is meant to be really good. You can also turn it off, so it depends how much the console will be to judge if its an unnecessary gimmick.

is this a brand new one or refurbished one?

The biggest draw to the 3DS for alot of people really shouldn't be the 3D effect but the improved graphics.

You need the latest upgrade (V1.4) for the Acekard for it to work correctly on the DSi it works ok with the other patches but the latest removes a few bugs.
The New 3DS has supposedly a REAL 3D screen in that there are 2 other very thin screens built into the bottom screen, which gives the 3D effect.
You only get the 3D effect on one screen and the battery life has been reduced due to the power requirements.

I agree.

Nintendo state before Xmas 2010 and if their marketing is anyrthing like the Wii and the Wii Fit then there will be quite a shortage

Same price at GAME/ Gamestation AFAIK, Im sure I remember getting an email about it last week?!?!? (cant check as work bans any "fun" type websites..... even during lunch!!!)

Correction they've actually said end of Fiscal year 2010 (which could be anything upto the end of March next year). Although I suspect they will try to get it out for Xmas if they can,

Brand new, Black Only - Other colours more expensive

I'm tempted by this. I'm not the slightest bit interested in 3D, but if this were to drop in price even further as a result of the 3D being released...hmm...

Then again, since they declared the likes of r4i cards illegal, I'm not sure whether to bother.

I think at the moment you can still get r4i cards so i would hurry up and decide

I tried to buy one from a place I used before (r4i.co.uk) but their website has gone. I could do with a recommendation for another.

well after abit of research:

dsi-r4i-cards.com/
mobymemory.com/R4_…asp

if r4i.co.uk reappears here is a promotional code - 24offs - expires 31 august 2010

Get 24% off absolutely everything at R4i.co.uk, simply enter the voucher code during the checkout process. Online orders only.

hope these helps?

I realise this may seem like an odd question, but can anybody who bought a DSi from amazon with this offer tell me the first three letters of the serial number on the back of the console? It will be something like "TEX" followed by numbers, but I only need to know the first three letters starting with "TE". I only ask as im curious which factory Nintendo is currently using to manufacture European DSi's.
