Exclamation Nintendo DSi

I've heard a rumor that it doesnt have a DS card slot. Is this true? And if it is this is just stupid.

I know it hasn't got a GBA game slot, but that's not a big loss, I suppose.

Um, I'm not sure, I think it was somewhere like IGN.com or something, but that's great that it's rubbish. Thanks for that!

This is part of an artical about the DSi, stating it's new features..

The Nintendo DSi adds a ton of new features which I'll get to, but it does remove one feature: the Game Boy Advance slot. There's no GBA compatibility, and DS games that require the GBA slot for peripherals will not work on the DSi.

But for all that's been changed, to only lose the GBA slot is pretty impressive. The DSi features a ton of new elements: two cameras,an SD card slot, a brand new menu interface, a firmware-updateable operating system, a music player, a photo viewer, and the ability to download games and software from the internet through the DSiWare store. The system even improves on standard Nintendo DS elements: you no longer are forced to turn off your system whenever you've adjusted a setting or if you want to pop out a game cartridge. The power button is a soft reset first that kicks any DS game to the main menu. You can even pop out a DS cartridge and put another one in – the cards are now hot-swappable and you can watch the system change the menu accordingly.

You actually considered it to be true? What would be the point of a DSi if you can't play DS games?

The DSi will be able to play DS games through the DS card slot, obviously.
The SD card is a feature, yes, but that's it. Some people may be able to take advantage of it and play ROMs with it, but yeah, the SD card is not meant to be used for games.

Nintendo wouldn't make an actual game system into a ROM type thing. That would just make it easier for people to pirate them.

Resurgence is an unknown quantity at this point

I don't plan on getting the DSi. I'm happy enough with my DS Lite!
