  • There's not a handheld console as innovative. Improved screen
  • Can't play GBA games. Poor battery life.
  • The Nintendo DSi is pure, unadulterated fun. Just not a massive leap from the DS Lite....

  Published: 2009-04-04, Author: Stuart Andrews , review by: trustedreviews.com

  • Abstract:  Four years after the launch of Nintendos DS, its hard to remember that, at the time, its success felt anything but inevitable. While tech sites and gadget mags were drooling all over Sonys PSP (us included), the DS has us mystified. What was t...

  • The Nintendo DSi is a slimmer, sleeker multimedia-minded Nintendo DS, with two webcams. But it has skimpy internal storage, and AAC is the only music format supported Darren Gladstone ...

  • If you don't already own a Nintendo DS or DS Lite, buying a Nintendo DSi will guarantee you more hours of wasteful bliss than a lorry made of maltesers. But some shonky cameras and a few millimetres shaved off aren't reason enough for an upgrade...

  • Plays DS and DS Lite games; capable of AAC music playback; larger screens than the DS Lite
  • Doesn't play MP3 audio files; reduced battery life; camera function is gimmicky
  • The Nintendo DSi is great if you're looking for a new handheld games console, but there's very little point buying one if you already own a DS Lite. It's merely mediocre as an audio player, its VGA cameras are poor and under-utilised, and its battery ...
