    Nothing firm, clearly...but gosh, I'd be all over this! Nothing I'd like to do more then pick up some great GBA, GBC and GB games!

    I thought I would be able to do this sort of thing when the Wii first came out. Then I was hoping the DSi would have at least a 320x240 screen, so I could download my other console games on to it... Oh well. I can dream. :(

    This is Nintendo we are talking about, they will be 500 - 1000 + points each I'm sure.

    I heard the other day on a podcast (1up yours I think) that Nintendo points for Wii and Nintendo points for DSi are not cross-compatible.

    All the reports I've found so far are from last year. Anyone know anything about this?

    There would be a few titles I'd get, notably Pokemon Red/Blue and Gold/Silver. So long as they tweaked it to let us transfer pokermans over to the DS version, and so long as they supported closing the screen for a sleep mode (wish GBA mode on the DS would do that :mad:)

    I always thought this was obvious! NOA wants easy money - they have a back library of great games that run on old hardware - easy port to VC / DSi. Done.

    I've not heard anything about this in the past few months ... but that is my understanding as well. I have a 2000 point Wii card sitting around that my kids haven't spent yet and would use it for my upcoming DSi (yes I pre-ordered ... yes I know the various drawbacks ... yes I am one sad gadget freak ...)
