How Much DSiWare Have You Purchased In The Past Year?

Nintendo is celebrating the first year of DSiWare today, which gives us the perfect chance to ask our readers this question: how much DSiWare have you purchased?

As far as I am concerned, the Nintendo DSi has two selling points over the cheaper Nintendo DS: the cameras, and DSiWare. If neither of those features interest you, you'd be better off with a normal DS. I purchased a DSi on day one because I felt like I had to, in order to deliver coverage on the system, but were I not a writer for Kotaku, odds are I would still be rocking my plain old Metallic Rose DS.


In fact, I've not purchased a piece of DSiWare since going through the initial 1,000 DSiWare points Nintendo included with the system at launch.

I picked up an Art Style game, an Animal Crossing clock, and...that seems to be it. I wound up trading my launch DSi for a pink one later, losing my purchases, and I've not really missed them.

So DSiWare is a year old now, and Nintendo has released this spiffy little video, showing off the service's first-year highlights, plus sneak peeks at upcoming titles. Perhaps I'll find some inspiration lurking in there.

For now, however, my purchases stand at two, and those I might not have picked up if I didn't get free points with my DSi.

So what's your total up to?
