Kotaku: "One of the top DS development houses in the industry doesn't see the DSi as just a DS Lite plus gimmicks."
Ya, we know but it's yet to be used properly. There's only a few people who are going to show it as well because most devs haven't even grasps how powerful the DS/DSLite is yet.
But what is the point on investing resources on maximising the DSi if it then means that the DS lite won't be able to play the game?
Well the DSiware could certainly be used to put a really nice looking game out, but it would be short compared to a retail release unless they did it episodic. Also they're going to what they did with the Gameboy color. They're going to have a lot of games that work on the DS Lite but are superior on the DSi due to the enhanced specs then eventually they'll make DSi exclusives. Most Devs won't even consider maxing it out though like I was saying because most of them haven't even tried maxing out the DS. Also a DSi exclusive game could be made to convince people to upgrade, when people see a really nice game that can't be done on the other DSs they might consider getting a DSi.
ill be getting myself a DSI in september im looking forward to it =]
I have to say Nintendo did the right thing by making the screen bigger too.
Im working on a few DSi games at the moment and theres an immediate improvement with the addition of a swanky DSP processor which can add a nice overall reverb to your mix.
I'm still on the fence inregards to whether I should purchase one or not. It's an inprovement on the current system, but I have yet to see functions or titles that justifies a purchase.
I was never really fond of the DSi
What is it? A slicker DS lite with a camera? Doesnt seem to justify the price. Sure if I was to get a ds now I would get a dsi for sure but its not worth it stepping up from a ds lite to a dsi.
as long as it works, i'm not going to upgrade, plus doesn't the DSi have lower battery time than the other DSs
Depends what brightness you use. It has two stages of brightness higher than the DS Lite and even more over the Phat. If you have it on max brightness it doesn't last as long as the Lite but if you turn it down to setting 3 it lasts quite long(dunno how it directly compares to the Lite though). I think overall though it can last longer than the Phat but perhaps not the Lite.
well my sister dsi lasted as long as her dslite. i cant really say but it last a good bit. tho i was planning to get the dsi once it came out but got broke lol. but i am definitely gonna get it as soon as i can. cant wait til they actually started to make games for it exclusively. i choose the dsi over any other cuz well i have like 3 dslite in the house and like 4 gameboy so i have no problem of them cutting the gameboy slot
