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.

Bought a second game console at a discount as a spare. Very pleased with the purchase.

DSi XL (usa version) review
Even though I am in Oz, I have been downloading games from the US store using US wii point cards -yes it definately works!!! If you are in Oz, make sure you get a usb charge cable or go to your local Game shop and get an Oz AC power supply for $10. Thanks Play Asia :)

Very cool piece of kit.
I already had myself a DSi before buying a LL, but the new region-locking on many of my wanted DS titles meant I was in the market for a Japanese system. The yellow DSi LL stood out to me, so I took the plunge.

It's, frankly, awesome. The screens are huge, bright and clear. Yeah, the resolution is low and *certain* games may not benefit, but stuff like Pokemon and Dragon Quest look fantastic on it.

It has a great sense of weight and the style of the system is very classy, even in the new brighter colours. If you want a DS, the XL/LL is the way to go!
