An article at Wired discusses the difficulties involved in transferring games that were purchased and downloaded online when users replace their Wii or DSi. "Neither the Wii nor Nintendo’s portable DSi consoles have an upgrade path for downloadable content, since games are tied not to user accounts but to specific machines. It’s impossible for a user to copy content from an old console to a new one. Even some Wii owners whose machines have malfunctioned said it was difficult, or impossible, to get Nintendo to transfer the software licenses at its headquarters." One gamer, who bought the recently released black Wii console, explained that she got Nintendo to transfer her games, but needed to "mail both of her Wii consoles to Nintendo, and wait two weeks," hardly a convenient solution.

The newest incarnation of Nintendo’s handheld, the DS launches on April 5th. This will be called the DSi and the system will have overhauled features. Two cameras are on this puppy—one on the back of the panel with the top screen, and the second pointing towards the user on the inside of the hinge. The GBA slot has been replaced with an SD card slot, making the device open to many other types of media and applications. It will play movie and certain music files as well (but not mp3 files), which can also be stored on the card. The DSi also boasts an Internet browser, presumably Opera, just like the Wii. I can only imagine that it will be easier to use, and less of a pain to navigate than the PSP’s browser, especially when it comes to field entry since we’ll have the touch screen to use like a thumb pad, or with the stylus pen if you prefer.

The DSi will be able to connect to the Wii Shop Channel / DSi Shop, which will allow people to download games directly to the machine, or the SD cards inside of it.
