    ^ What he said. This isnt a DS to DSi type upgrade. This is an Xbox to Xbox360 upgrade. It's a WAY more powerful system.

    Should have bought a gameboy on ebay.

    Haha @ all that money you wasted on a DS just for colors.

    No, it's N64 to Xbox 360.

    I am thinking of getting it but if it is 300 dollars i will wait for a sale or until the price goes down. Not to piss off anyone but I am more ready for the psp2 because i am more of a sony fan, but i still enjoy nintendo (mostly some zelda or DK)

    $300 is the Japanese price, also the same price as the cheapest iPod touch is there. I'm guessing $250 here, we always get our systems cheaper than Japan does. I'm not too worried about the health warnings. The regular DS has been firing a warning at me for the past 6 years every time I turn the thing on and nothing bad ever happened to me. The booklet that comes with the games says to take a 15 minute break every hour to prevent eye strain (the regular DS, not 3DS), so these warnings are nothing new, just legalese butt-covering by Nintendo. Remember, they are the company responsible for the mass Pokemon seizures in Japan, so they're extra wary of such things.

    I'm really impressed with the fact that it can do 3d without the need for ridiculous glasses.
    Add in MML3 and the fact that the graphics are capable of running(near) SFIV and RE5 graphics, and I'm sold.

    It's slightly stronger, but not significantly. It had the strength of two(or was it three?) Gamecubes.
