    Nintendo DS?

    How does the games on this thing work? Are they miniCD's? cartridges? What?

    And I'm looking for a Nintendo DS - brand new not bothered about games - how much should i be looking to pay? I should think around the £70-£80 mark?

    They are mino cartridges. I'd say around £70 second hand but they may go down in price with the new DSi coming out.

    Yup, got all the info I need.

    So around £70 brand new with no games?

    Ok can the DSi be chipped? And is it worth getting the DSi over the DS lite?

    If you provide a link to that price, someone may be able to help you further, but it sounds like you should be posting in "Deal Requests" really.

    Yes and no, it's complicated to explain.

    You have any links where I can read up on this?

    I've seen DSTT cards on sale claiming they are for DSi.

    Someone told me that they stopped producing PS2's 2 years ago, and no longer make games for them.

    Sometimes "people" are wrong/not up to date.

    Acekards etc work, best to use google

    Maybe it is possible? http://dsiflashcards.com/tag/dsi-roms/



    That article was written last year and was tested on a Japanese DSi.

    The DSi for Europe has different firmware, and unlike the DS lite, is upgradeable.
    Why everyone is rushing to get a DSi is unbeknown to me, even the adverts on the television show no new games for it, and only showcase stretching photos. Cool. :roll:

    This machine may be a worthwhile spend of £150, but at the moment, not.

    Thanks guys. Made up my mind. DSi is not worth the extra money considering it has no new games - and the price it too much for what you actually get.

    Well I ordered this Acekard 2 from DX. About £8 delivered:

    Not a bad price. But will take a little while to get delivered. And will save me time having to find all the info about the card on the net.

    Plus firmware is open source so i can mod it if I want.
