As detailed in CAG Foreplay Podcast #61, we have some DSi swag courtesy of Nintendo. We have a DSi lanyard, DSi magnets, and Animal Crossing: Wild World magnets to give away to one winner.

Listen to the show for details on how to win (or just copy the trend that you see forming of those that actually listened)! Winner will be announced on the next CAG Foreplay. A winner will be chosen at random.

Thanks again for the prize Nintendo!

Good luck everyone!

I'd have to see what the DSiware is going to bring before I'd be interested in buying one.

I voted no, but I may be persuaded if my shoulder buttons stop working completely on my DS Lite. They are getting really flaky.

Eventually, but I'm going to try to hold off for as long as possible. I'm not interested in DSiware or the bigger screen, but I like the buttons better than the Lite and eventually there is going to be compelling DSi only software.

A good limited edition or a price drop are going to be make it irresistible.

I have no reason or interest in the DSiware. Its pretty bad I had a DS and never seemed to use it. I played it maybe 20 times or so before I ended up getting rid of it = (

I said no, but I'm sure a Black Friday bundle or better colors will sway me at some point.

I say nay because I would rather have the ability to play old gameboy games on my DS than having a crappy camera.

i will buy one when i get bored with my ds lite or if there is a game that makes the dsi worth buying.

I have one coming but don't know if im going to keep it. Maybe i'll rebuy it later when there's desirable titles, or once my white DS Lite crumbles to dust (unless of course the DS Lite drops to 100, in which case i'll probably just replace it with a new DS Lite)

voted no b/c removing features from the ds lite felt like a bad move for me, especially since they intend to sell gba games back to the consumer thru DLC leaving the physical copies of gba games to rot.

No for now, until I see some must have exclusive DSi downloadable game or DSi only features.

If I can get some money for my ds lite, I'm going to make the jump!

There has to be at least 5 must have DSi exclusives before I trade up my Lite.

My DS broke earlier this year so I have been having to play the wives. When it broke I decided it only made sense to wait for the DSi before I bought a new one.

No way am I buying a DSi. Not only is it the DS equivalent of the GC games being upgraded with Wii controls, but as a UK gamer, I would get shafted by the now-typical delays and outright omissions from the other regions

Not a chance I'd buy a DSi...
1) I'm cheap
2) I would never use the features of the DSi (for the time being)
3) I actually do play GBA games on my DS.

Probably won't buy one.

Are the graphics/hadware any different than the DS Lite? Are games still going to be "Nintendo DS games? or is there going to be DSi games?

Yea, I sold my ds lite a year and a half ago, so I'm looking forward to getting the dsi. There's a lotta cool games to check out. GTA, retro game challenge, henry hatsworth, And Korg ds.

Voted yes because I'm addicted to spending money. Besides, I hate not being able to connect to the internet with my dslite due to the fact that I use WPA and I'm not willing to downgrade to WEP.

I have been looking to get a second DS. Depending on timing and pricing, it might be a DSi ... it might not.

#22 TheInfiniteAmmo


Posted 01 April 2009 - 04:24 PM

I'll probably be buying one...eventually. My DSLite works great right now.

But the allure of DSiWare and the fast, integrated browser are both appealing. Too appealing...

#23 adriley313


Posted 01 April 2009 - 05:37 PM

I play Pokemon to much so no i will not be buying.
Though it would be cool if the DS Lite was matte.

I don't play my DS enough to justify getting a new one but my current's WiFi crapped out so I may in the future.

    Huh... Wha...?

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 01 April 2009 - 07:22 PM

Nope, I'm good thanks. I still play GBA games, never used the wireless before on my DS, and a brighter screen would be wasted on me since I use the lowest setting on mine and it still burns the eyes.

I'm not going to buy a DSi. My DS Lite is working fine and I don't need a camera, I don't need my DS to be an mp3 player.

The DSware and internet access are interesting, but not enough to for me to spend the $70.

#28 Mike26


Posted 01 April 2009 - 08:43 PM

Not yet...waiting for a good deal to appear and more games to use the DSi features

I have mine pre-ordered and picking it up sunday. I like the matte finish and hopefully DSi Ware will be cool.

I'll get a DSi once a DS game or DSi Ware comes out with a DSi exclusive feature that makes me go 'I need to try that'.
