    Since I never bother with the hassle of importing stuff, this doesn't really affect me, but it still sucks.

    What exactly is the rationale behind region-locking stuff? Like, in general?

    I think you should all be thankful to Nintendo for giving you one more reason to keep your money in your wallet, and your DS LIte.

    I love you Satoru <3

    I would bet it's just for DL games.

    It is. Creating DSi only games would be waste of time, considering that by end of this year, DS has installed userbase of +80 million. Some common sense would go long way. Of course, it wouldn't be Penny-Arcade Forums if people wouldn't have kneejerk reactions and jump into retarded conclusions. :)

    So to summarize, both DSi cartridge games and downloadable DSi games are region locked. Regular DS games still are not.

    So... what the heck is a DSi cartridge game? Downloaded games I could see, but now there are actual new hardware games?

    This looks a lot more like the GB Colour, which could also play specific Colour games. Which at this stage in the game, with the whole userbase of the DS and stuff, seems pretty dang stupid to do again. But then again, the GB Colour was practically marketed as the brand new system that it was.

    So what the hell is it Nintendo? Is this just another cosmetic upgrade, or is this the DS2?

    The only way a DS game would be exclusive to the DSi is if it required the camera as a major feature. And downloadable games are typically region locked because of a hoard of legal issues.

    Also, why would Nintendo make "DSi" games and alienate a fucking MASSIVE install base? That's just stupid. Sure there will be 1 or 2 that use the camera, but it won't be anything worth getting all up in arms about.
    What if one of those DSi games is the new Zelda or other major franchise, though? Then we will all have to jump ship and shell out for a DSi anyway. The Legend of Zelda: Camera of Courage. I could see it happening.

    See I just find this thread really funny. People are going, oh the feature set is barely improved or worse than the DSL, oh it's region locked, screw that, I'm never buying one ever. When I know everybody in this thread is going to own one by the end of the DSi's first year, whether because it gets some fantastic applications like the original DS, or because their hand is forced by all new games being DSi only for some reason.

    I think it's totally awesome and I'm getting one right away. Hell, early adopters get the 1000 Nintendo points, which is a $10 rebate off the bat.

    I think it was Tycho who said it best when he said about Nintendo "just to remind you that Nintendo made it there is a serious flaw".

    Has anyone got any idea what that fat square pillow-shaped thing is? It almost looks like a remote for locking/unlocking your car. I don't think anyone's mentioned it yet, and it looks way too big to fit anywhere inside the DSi...

    Any idea? This is actually really annoying me. It's shown right after the fashion game thingy.

    I wouldn't consider the browser more than a novelty. Even on the PSP's higher resolution screen it's only barely functional due to the size restrictions, certainly not something you'd ever use outside messing about or when you have little choice in the matter.
    Plus, if the DSi can still only connect to WEP good luck actually using it on trips.

    We don't know if it's a wiimake or a new game, considering the same boxers show up in multiple Punch-Outs.
