If you're interested, I would encourage ordering ASAP. Can always cancel, and these will almost certainly be in short supply for awhile.

In for one Matte Black. I don't need it, but I run a Nintendo fansite so my excuse is that it's required for proper news coverage. ;-)

I'm one of the few people in this world that still doesn't have a DS of any kind. Still pondering whether I should get a DS Lite or DSi. I don't really need a GBA port, so I'm leaning more toward a DSi. Any other thoughts?

I sooooo want a DSi just work that WiFi shop. Even the PSP doesn't have it. Too bad Nintendo doesn't know how to put in expandable memory in the Wii:/

If you don't care about a GBA slot, definitely get the DSi. It has more memory than the Lite, a better screen, a couple of cameras, the ability to download content from an online store, some cool image maniuplation software, etc.

Whoa...where have I been lately? I had no idea that they were releasing Black and Blue colors in the US... I guess they really are done with the white ones. Really interesting. I wonder if Japan is getting the Blue too? I assume they will.

There was never any indication of a new blue color up until hours ago.

I just put in an order for a blue one. I still have a DS phat and don't need a DSi, I'm just ordering it in case the resell value goes through the roof. Seems to be what happens with all Nintendo products these days so I won't be surprised if it does.

Ha! That's what I'm doing too. If it doesn't hold a great resell value, I'll cancel my order so someone else who wants to play it can get it.

Wow... didn't realize they were coming out so soon.

That blue is interesting. I can't decide whether I like or not, but would likely end up going with it just because it's new.

I ordered a blue one; I'm might cancel, but I rather have the option to keep it if they become hard to get.

Are the Wifi settings still the same as the ds lite? Mine won't connect to my type of router.

Huh, people think this is going to be hard to get? I guess if it's a failure it will be. otherwise there will be plenty available.

Thanks OP, but I'm still skeptical that the price premium is worth it.

Then you clearly haven't been paying attention to Nintendo's "Demand via Scarcity" marketing tactic for the past 2 years.

In for a black one. I'm not taking any chances. As the OP mentioned, you can always cancel it.

I don't get it.

In my mind the lite is the superior system because of the gba support. The dsi seems like less of an upgrade and more of nintendo trying to cash in on the ds1 just a bit more before the ds2 is announced. (can't blame them)

I'd be interested to hear why everyone is so excited.

Dont know what you guys are talking about.....

wifi store, downloadable games, SD card support and Camera sounds good to me for an extra $40. I recently sold my DS lite and iam getting this for sure.

Yeah, if the DSi connects through WPA on my wireless router, that would be the biggest plus for me. I mean this thing is supposed to have worse battery life than the DS Lite, which makes sense since it has more junk in it, but , c'mon...the battery life is such a huge feature. I wish my DS Lite connected WPA. Doesn't make any sense.

Plus a slightly bigger screen and slightly less weight (I think)... I also have wanted to get my Dad a DS for quite some time, and so this is an easy way for me to get a new system and give him my old Lite.
