    Sounds great but is the screen up to it, especially for tv. Even more when it is compared the the PSP screen. Still good news none the least. The web browser sounds great though :)

    This is really something. I can drop $150-160 for a new, smaller DS (whenever it gets released-- "spring," IIRC,) and $20-30 bucks for opera; and get much better wi-fi browsing than I can get on my treo with a $50 a month data plan and no wi-fi. That's not even considering the gaming, which is very high quality. This is huge.

    Thats that settled then. I was seriously considering a PSP but now I'll definitely get a DS even if it was just for the web browser.

    There's also a 4gb HDD thingy for the DS now. for media and such.

    Personally I wont bother with Opera on my DS or these new media features. but its nice they exist.

    Sounds great. Too bad I sold my DS back in October. I may have to pick up a DS Lite once they come down in price to what the normal DS's are sold for now.

    gamefront.de even pointed something different out: wining eleven will be in fact WiFi enabled which sounds like a blast as well

    This is GREAT news! :D
    Takao, it says that Super Robot Wars and Winning Eleven will be Japan-only. What is Winning Eleven about?

    I'm a little off topic here but I don't want to create a new DS thread for my question.

    I wanted to know if any of you know about a good Nintendo DS game cards holder. (Just for the games, not for DS and accessories). I currently have a neat compact aluminum one that can old 8 cards but my game collection outgrew it.

    I'd like to get a new one, that could hold at least 12 cards (more = better). Ideally, it would be as compact as possible. Anybody know of a good one?

    Thanks

    I already love the DS and now have even more reason to do so! Can't wait to check my email on my DS :) Not sure if I would actually buy the Opera card but wonder if they would allow for the demo service that I have read about... being able to walk into any store that sells the DS and previewing titles on your DS through WiFi.

    Even more exiced about the new Mario Bothers game :)

    I've been watching cartoons on it and it looks great. Not sure how movies would look though.

    I must say that despite the ingenuity of this web browser design, I'd rather browse on a PSP.

    This sound cool. Free internet is never a bad thing! I'll be picking one of these up when it's released I think. It'll be most useful for checking thinks while I'm out.

    You mean longer load up times? Without the intuitive use of a stylus and keyboard than a D-Pad?

    Yea. sounds a little like trolling. even on paper the DS trumps the PSP browsing, only made better by its bigger screen. Even though I hear the PSP browsing is very limited. Opera is very not-limited.


    I'd rather get that TV thing though. I think (unsure) that Japan and the UK use the same broadcast format or something.

    Well duh, if the Dreamcast taught us anything, it's that typing with a d-pad and surfing the internet with a joystick are the two most wonderful activities ever created.

    Since the PSP's browser runs off the firmware I doubt the load times are any longer than the DS.

    But surfing with a D-pad sounds like the most horrible thing I've ever heard. How do you click on links? It's like surfing on a PC without a mouse and tabbing to each link...ouch.

    But jimmi, stating an opinion, even a silly one, is not trolling.

    I think this picture is a very good sign as to the brightness of the new screens!
