Importing a DSi is a no-go. But if it's region-locked, I'll really be wrecked.

Yes, it's a no-go because it's prohibitively expensive. That, and voltage transformers don't come cheap either.

NINTENDO, HELL YEAH!

Now this I agree with. Enhanced menu with what seems to be an app framework, where you can download stuff, a music playing app, and a camera with photo editing…

DSiWare, so we can download small games onto our game.

An SD card slot for all the photos we take. And probably storing DSiWare too.

The now-old DS and DS Lite has obviously been deprecated. Time to upgrade

DS R button fragility

Posted September 26th, 2008 at 03:58 AM by Hiroshi Sotomura (Sotomura Blog)

Damn the fee you have to pay just to get a shoulder button working again. Damn it so.

It's $75 (USD) for a DS Lite button repair, just to crack it open and clean a spring inside because the button's become insensitive. It's a steep price, but at least you're given warranty post-repair in case something goes wrong again.

I just hope Nintendo provides such warranty here.

… though quite frankly, it simply isn't worth it given that not many games (besides
