    It's very nice looking. I like the non-glossy top and the even more simple sleek rectangular design, but it's also gonna make playing Guitar Hero on Tour impossible without that GBA port and that's a deal-breaker for me.

    Well, I like it, but I'll only buy one when Nintendo comes out with a Virtual Console line-up for the DSi. That and remakes for Pokemon Gold and Silver.

    I hope this prompts a price drop on the current DS model.

    Nintendo Exec #1> Oh crap, despite the Wii's success we lost a crap-ton this past year!
    Nintendo Exec #2> What will we do? We need more money!
    Nintendo Exec #3> The same thing we do every time, make a new version of our portable.

    Where did they lose money? Do you know something Wall Street and the Video Game Sector doesn't know? Share!

    Sony made a new version of their handheld too, right? But that one has screen issues they won't fix. Damn those evil Nintendo people and their make-things-fun-and-working mentality. Damn them!! :p

    i heard that they're coming with a new way...maybe something that wraps from the DS port around so it'll be just like the DS version.
