Yahoo article on new Nintendo DSi

I know what you are thinking, wtf is this doing here? This isn't a Nintendo forum, this isn't even a forum for all hand held games. But it is one for the iPod Touch and iPhone. Which are mentioned 4 times in the article as a competitor to the new DS. I thought it was interesting on how the industry is opening its doors more and more to the iDevices as being legitimate hand held gaming platforms.

That article is completely biased.. or Nintendo paid Yahoo to write that. What kind of a comparison is that?

Is that an iPhone in your pocket, or are you happy to see me?

Nintendo did have some brilliant ways of using the cameras, though. There's a new Warioware game called WarioWare: Photograped (or something...that's the Japanese translation) and you have to do certain activities while in the camera.

It doesn't matter. No backwards compatability is a turn-off for me already. Plus, what about guitar hero for the DS? You can't play it on the DSi. If you ask me, this makes the DS more of a PSP than anything.

Hey, People thought the Nintendo Wii was stupid. Look at it now. It's made alot of money. Although games arn't great for 1 player, it's great for parties though.
