    Post Nintendo DSi Sells Out Quickly, Reviews Coming In [Slashdot]

    The Nintendo DSi was released in Japan on Saturday, and the initial production run of 200,000 units has already sold out. 1Up has done some comparisons to the DS, and they have a video feature tour of the new hardware (which, predictably, has already been hacked). The image editing software is reported to be rather bare-bones, and the browsing is slow, but both features could likely be used with games in interesting ways. Nintendo will be launching a series of WarioWare games to demonstrate the DSi's capabilities. The DSi will likely reach North America next summer.

    Like the addition of a camera, 2 seems a bit overkill, larger screen is cool, internet browsing (though i heard its pretty slow and clunky at this point) is cool, downloadable games and stuff are cool. That being said i wouldnt trade that GBA slot for all that and much much more lol. If i get one of these its a supplement definitely not a replacement.

    Yeah I agree, I need my GBA slot. I would like to give the web browser a shot, though.

    I'm surprised anyone misses the GBA slot, the button layout sucks for so many GBA titles like the Mario Advance ports.

    You guys should find a SP2 for your GBA needs...

    The only reason i'd miss the GBA slot is for my Spinner for Space Invaders Extreme, Arkanoid or the card reader for Mushiking.... But then again i've got enough extra DS's not to care that I don't have that slot on a DSi.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    I've played GBA's but never owned one, honestly i never had any problem with the button layout for GBA games on my ds lite. And id say i play just as many gba games as i do ds games if not more.
