I have recently been spending a lot of time with my older DS Lite and thought it would be nice to upgrade it to a DSi. After trying to get a second hand one in good condition I thought to check PlayAsia - and it turns out you can still get the Japanese language models new.

It truly is new in box like it has fallen through a time portal from 2009. It is also running it's original firmware, which is convenient for homebrew. I had forgotten what a fantastic upgrade the DSi was from the DS Lite. You lose a little battery life but it is still far more long lived than any of the current 3DS / 2DS handhelds. For that you get bigger screens, nicer layout, slimmer body and the ability to adjust the brightness on the fly. It's also great that it takes the same charger as my 3DS so I no longer need to carry the one for my DS Lite.

Setting up the Japanese model was quite easy - I managed to guess my way through although once I loaded up an English game I realised I had the date backwards. Easy enough to fix, and I can now recognize the Japanese symbols for day and month ;). One thing to note is that you can't use the camera unless you go through a very long tutorial on taking an image and making edits to it. Again, I had to guess my way through but it really wasn't that bad.

There is no region locking on NDS titles so now the console is set up I use it to play English games without needing to understand the UI.

Nintendo DSi (Pokemon Black Edition)
Sweet as limited edition from Japan. Ordered through Play-Asia, yet definitely worth it. However, the Japanese DSis don't support English language - just Japanese only. However, the console region free and can play any DS games without the need to worry.

I will say the limited edition DSs are worth it, despite me only needing it to play games. So I wouldn't really worry about a Japanese UI. I don't regret buying this - so excited when I got it. Thanks Play-Asia!

The best handheld out there.
The DS has always been a favourite in the house since 2005. There is such a diverse variety of games to choose from. If you're looking for a new game console, try the DS. You won't regret it!

AWESOME Portable Console
I got it a coupla weeks ago. And I've done much more with it already, than I was able to do with my other DSs and Pokemon games. I've got a Japanese mystery gift already! I wish I'd gotten it when I got my Pokemon Black and White games. I so want to try other games now! I got an SD Card for it. Though it no longer plays GBA games, it is a clear advancement in DS consoles.
