I sold my DS after getting fed up of waiting for any good games on it. Now with the DSI I can see myself getting back into the whole handheld gaming lark. ( I have chrono trigger and Chinatown wars sat here waiting for friday)

I also have a crappy work lanyard that I currently have to wear but a nice snazzy DSI one would be sure to impress my boss!

For me it really depends on the dsi ware games. I doubt they'll be that great though. I'll miss the GBA slot too. I'm sticking with my DS Lite for now, but we'll see what happens in the future. So I vote no.

I'm a sucker for any Nintendo upgrades...so I'm definitely buying one.

And I really need the Animal Crossing magnets. It would would make my sex life better.

Own two DS systems already which were free. Don't need to pay for one.

I voted no. Mainly because well... what's the point? So you get a download service big deal. My iphone does the same as well as my wii. Two crappy cameras!!! Wow!! Yeah still not cutting it.

If there is one thing I learned from CAG it is that money is not hard to save in video games and I feel that the DSi is only here to get me to buy games that last 15 minutes and stay in the DSi forever. I will wait for the truely new hardware before I upgrade. And I voted no in the poll.

I am going to buy one. Its the perfect time to get one and hand my light down to my 6 year old. The DSi ware and SD card slot are tempting upgrades.

Not going to buy a DSi. The only reason I ended up upgrading my Phat to a Lite is because EB Games had a Trade-5-get it free deal. It seems like Nintendo is just running out of people to sell a DS to so they stuck some crap on it to get people to buy their 3rd DS.

I'm not getting the DSI. Reason for being so is when I got the DS Lite, I hardly ever played it. And I Just Recently bought the R4 for the DS, so I can play a crap load of games without changing cartrages. And the features Nintendo is Providing, doesn't really justify the cost and effert for me to buy it.

I am not going to get it at launch for $180 because that is too much for a handheld console that is only slightly improved from the $120-130 but once the first price drop hits then I'm getting it because of the SD card compatibility until then I am fine with my DS lite. I was also invited to this event by club nintendo but was not able to make it, it would be really nice to win some swag just to show I COULD have been there lol

I'm buying one due mainly because I have no self-control when it comes to new gadgetry. I have a Crimson Red DS Lite which I love, but will still pick up a light blue DSi next week (along with a Dragon Quest Slime Cover from PlayAsia).

I will but not right away, the only thing that would make me buy it now would be a killer app. And we all know that ain't going to happen too soon.

I'll be buying it at launch because I'm a consumer whore.

No GBA=no purchase for me. If I bought a DSI, then I'd have to buy a GBA SP to play my 20 GBA games if I wanted to play them. Screw that.

I already have my DSlite. I might consider getting the DSi later down the line if the camera function is added to some from of video chat. (which would be incredible)Another reason would be if my current Dslite calls it quits after three years of abuse and drops. Not by me but by the kids the sneak in and nab it.

I'm buying one for my GF because that color blue is her favorite color. I'm happy with my lite though...

I'm not going to buy one. I already have a real camera and a camera phone and $170 is not worth it. If Nintendo made DSi ware BC, I'd buy it for my Lite. Or if they gave me full DS Lite functionality w/GBA slot, then I might've considered it for $160, but otherwise no.

Only buy a DSI if my DS lite broke

I may consider buying one, but a few things would need to happen first.

1. The price would need to drop to $130 or below
2. The store would need to prove to be worthwhile

Otherwise I see no worthwhile improvement over the existing DS Lite.

I want to get a DSi, just not right away. My biggest problem is that I don't have enough money right now. The other thing is, I want to know is if you'll be able to connect your wii shop acount with your DSi shop account. I would hate to have to add points to both accounts seperately just to buy games. It would be much more simple to just have one account for both systems. I went to a DSi event as well, in Denver, but the employees at the gamestop couldn't answer that question either. I did enjoy the DSi. I got to play it for like 30 mins or so. Rythm Heaven is great by the way. I think that the best thing is the improvment of the menu & the little things like being able to go from in game back to the DSi menu without turning it off. But once I get more money & the DSi has been more established then I will for sure buy it.

Nah, I'm happy with my Black Pokemon DS Lite. I guess long term, maybe - but it doesn't seem like we can be that far from a DS 2 or whatever, which I would guess will have the same capabilities and more.

Yes, I just dropped O.G. DS in water and i'm afraid to turn it on. So, yeah, I'll be upgrading sometime soon.

I plan on getting one as soon as cash flow increases. My DS Original right button is going out and I am finally done playing through my GBA stash I bought at a yard sale two years ago.

Zero interest in a DSi, my thoughts are basically the same as Cheapy's.

if DSi only software comes out, then ill bite.... if not, then i'll probably stick with that i have, DSware doesnt really interest me enough to make the jump

Voted no since I would need to drop $100 on top of trading in my lite.
