I feel so lost. I don't know if I'm missing the advertising, or if I'm not getting it. Exactly what is the benefit to the DSi? I know it's not the camera, too weak compared to even most mobiles. Is it the downloadable content? I wish Ninty had released some DSi specific games to show exactly what the difference/advantage is to upgrading.
