First deal thread so hope I do this right!
Nintendo DSi console (White) is only £89.99 at Amazon
I know the 3DS is only a few months away, but this is still a good deal for many people.

[EDIT] Same price at play.com as well, so probably one site is price matching the other (Thanks jayok)

good price

good enough for me - will replace my boys busted lite

bought from play for the 1% topcashback :-)

Great price although I would seriously recommend paying the extra for an XL. The improvement over the DSi is huge.

Voted hot.

Can't wait to see what the 3D one is like

good find. im personally waiting on the 3DS next year.

I cancelled my amazon one to order on Play as I have £260 in playfunds on Play.com (and I went through TCB).

Whens the 3d one launched? This year? My sons after a DSi XL for his birthday as the clumbsy so and so dropped his other one! Heat added for this by the way

very nice price but i dont want it when i know 3d one is coming soon

Paid the same for this prior to Christmas from Comet, so good, but not as hot a price now.

Disagree...
They are not huge differences. XL is just larger screen and slight better sound!
DSi suited for kids
XL suited for big kids/adult
I wouldnt recomment xl for kids as it would give strain to the wrist cuz of the weight.

Why are people still buying these when you can get an iPod touch and download quality games for .59p and many decent games for free.

what idiots are playing £25+ for a handheld game when you could get 100 games for that price in the iTunes store

The 3DS might be an improvement but the quality of the cameras on all DS models is shocking just 0.3 mega pixels!!

I'm guessing you're not a gamer then?
The DS easily has many more superior games by such a long way compared to the very small select few on the iphone that are any good.

Chrono Trigger alone is 70 hours of superb RPGness.

iPod touch
MP3 player
stream music
rent and watch latest movies
buy music videos
watch tv
quality Internet browser
facetime (free video calls over wifi)
3.0 megapixel quality camera
etc
etc etc
NDS
purchase poor quality games £15-
£35. shocking camera 0.3 megapixel. yeh I see your point the ds wins hands down!!


Buyers beware The ds, the dsi and ds xl are no longer being made by nintendo the 3ds is released in march/April.

Thats not true, both the DSi and DSi XL are still being manufactured and will continue to be manufactured for the forseeable future. I expect Nintendo will continue manufacturing/selling them for at least another year or two as a lower cost alternative to the 3DS (Rumoured to cost £210 / 250euros at launch)

The DS and DSi have a massive user base and have recently become the 'best selling console ever' in the US:-

Nintendo are not stupid and wont just abandon all those potential customers.

Don't get why renster has so much hate for the DS. Seriously. The iphone and the ds serve different gaming sections and different gaming types.

Your recent comment that Nintendo will cease production of all DS models is blatantly untrue.

97% increase in screen size is a huge improvement.

Weight? To heavy for kids?? Are you joking or just stupid??

I never realised the non PS & XBOX gaming fraternity could have such juvenile fanboyism

OK I have had to delete some posts and some others quoting... Please be nice to each other and no trolling. This is a deal thread so please keep on topic.
If you want to have a discussion about the merits of one game consol over another please do start a topic in the Misc forum.

Where do you get 97% ijncrease. Its only a 93% increase over the DSlite and even less over the DSi Its less than an inch bigger than DSi whereas it was 1.25 inches bigger than DSLites

also Each individual pixel in the 256x192 panel is just bigger. Practically speaking, it makes everything a bit hazier and a bit blurrier, just like playing 640X480 games on your 42 inch plasma.

As for the 3ds... Nintendo have released a health warning on thier japanese site before the release to say it might effect the developing eyesight of young children, although there is no conclusive proof that this is true they are making sure they are covering thier backsides just in case 5-10 years down the line it has damaged a small percent of kids eyes.

Got one from comet for same price before XMAS.. great price..

Oh dear me. One of the funniest yet lamest posts I've ever seen anywhere on the Internet.
Not everyone wants an Ipod for a start. Personally, I don't like anything Apple make.
There is a massive difference between Ipod and DS and Ipod isn't exactly ideal for kids of certain ages.
Also, if you know where to look, you can get DS games for, errr, let's just say cheaper!

NHS employees can potentially get a few quid more off this, as Amazon offer an NHS discount on gift voucher purchases, saving £2 on every £50 you spend. Just use the vouchers to buy the console

Got one from HMV for £82 although that was tax free

Gold, Shampoo and a DSi!!!!

Everything a petrol head needs xD

or you could just pay for your games rather than advocating piracy on a public website?

well the touch only only manages still images of 720 x 960 pixels—that's a measly 0.69 megapixels for twice the price roughly
ps im not a ds fan..the kid has one..but the touch is a shocker with a camera like that on it

can you get pokemon in the app store... No you cant whole reason why the ds is so good

incorrect again the camera on the ipod touch Is 3 megapixel the screen resolution is 920x760. 3 megapixel photos are good quality 7x5 photos. 0.3 on the ds equals pointless photos

Why would someone buy this for the picture quality anyway? My son loves this as he can take pictures and manipulate them easily. This is not designed for pictures to be printed like a real photo!!

Renster is a n00b troll, his comments are very amusing though, he has made me lol.
There is a reason games are 59p on the iphone.
I own every console and hand-held, and my ipod is jail broken, yet it receives no game time at all from me. even if the games are free
