    Developed by Dai Nippon Printing and AM3, the product called DSvision will appear much like any normal Nintendo DS game, except that on its side is a slot to accept a MicroSD card. Users of the product will be able to utilize a download service to load TV shows, comics and books for viewing on the Nintendo DS. The DSvision will come packed with the Nintendo DS cartridge, 512MB MicroSD and a MicroSD-to-USB adapter for 3,980 yen ($36). Users will use the adapter to load media on using a PC when the program launches in March 2008, though details on pricing for the download service are not clear. The DSvision is fully legal and exclusively licensed by Nintendo.

    Ive been using the R4DS for almost a year now ;)

    I bet this wont allow the use of ROMS like the R4 does ;)

    PS: movies and TV shows look terrible on the DS. If you want a media player/handheld console, you should look at the PSP.

    Downloading TV on your Nintendo DS Lite wow...I doubt the cost will be good though. It is sweet but is it going to be worth it every month?:nutkick:

    I got an R4DS for my bro for Xmas :p

    It won't let you play ROMs, so get an R4DS for cheaper :p

    PSP is definately the best handheld for videos, I've even found a lot of the media players built specifically to do it don't have the image quality that the PSP does. Shame it's so bulky (even the new one)

    oh wow, this is cool.

    Also, thanks for mentioning the R4ds. If I can download DS games on it and play it for free, my niece will be very very happy.
