No thanks, I already have my DS lite that I don't use. (waiting for the next Ace Attorney game.)

I have a camera in my phone.

but i'm personally waiting for the PSP2, since the PSP was kinda getting boring. Hopefully 2nd analog and touch screen will give it the extra umph to become fun again. But boy do i miss the old Socom FTB days...

This is a lot sooner than I expected. With Mario & Luigi RPG 3 coming out (along with a glut of other games), I might have to fall prey to Nintendo's shiny new handheld. D^:

and gives people a chance to collect their money from their drawers, piggy banks, and back pockets.
I'm not sure if the DSi is gona boom as much as the Lite did this Christmas, some parents are gona be kinda angry about it considering they just bought their kids a DS Lite for christmas. I'm sure about 85% don't know the DSi even exists.

The DSi is releasing in black The blue doesn't look really blue to me. More like a light blue. With that said, I re-purchased a DS lite a couple of months ago so no buy for me.
