**Really long story for anyone who cares**Sooo my sister dropped me off at my house on MLK Day and I got out of the car with my DSi. Later I realized that I didn't have it. I looked for it all over my house but to no avail. I even checked the road and it wasn't there. Fast forward to today. So my dad tells me that he saw some "black shards of plastic" near our driveway when he was snowblowing. And he pushed them down the storm drain. The only thing I can think of is that my DSi has been demolished by all the cars in my neighborhood.. The only thing I'm worried about is my DSiware. I still have the SD card by some miracle and it has all my DSiware on it. Should I wait until the 3DS comes out and transfer it there or get another DSi?EDIT: Oh and I guess I couldn't find it on the street because the GIGANTIC snowplows were in my neighborhood.. It didn't have a prayer

Are you able to wait 2 more months?
Every sheep needs a shepherd
Every shepherd needs a sheep for his flock.
They are walking to the horizon of their ideas
Trampling the sprouts of freedom and despising pride
But rise above the Earth and you will see
Where this herd is heading...
It's heading to the precipices!

I doubt you'll be able to transfer your DSiWare without having the original system -- even when Nintendo transfers your DSiWare to a replacement DSi they have you send in both the busted console you're replacing and the replacement for some reason. You can try calling Nintendo and seeing what they'll be able to do for you, but there's a good chance you're gonna be outta luck on this one.

Oh, so very sorry to hear that....I know if it was me I would be SOOOO torn up over it. Anyway, if I were in your position, I would have to buy another DSi because 1, I collect. and 2, I couldn't go 2+ months without my DSi! Just buy another DSi and then buy a 3DS when it comes out (Provided you have those kinds of funds available). If money is too tight though, I would say wait because you would want to not have a 3DS!

ahaha as much as I'd like to do that, it's definitely not going to happen. BUT my birthday is in March so mebbe I can hope for a 3DS?? I mean at least I still have my ds lite but the hinge is kinda loose..

I'm with you on the 'collecting' as I do get every revision (except for the XL, for now).
Really really sorry to hear what happened. I'd say wait until the 3DS comes out, especially if you have it on reserve (if you don't, I suggest you do so to be safe). I'd also suggest emailing Nintendo about the situation and seeing if they are able to do anything about it- like have you send over the 3DS and SD Card. Worth a shot, plus, the people are REALLY friendly and helpful. I'm sure they'd do something, especially to satisfy a customer

Wait for the 3DS! Its awesomeness will help you forget about your unfortunate event (which I am very sorry about, by the way).
I'm back (for the moment)!

3DS will wash all of those sad thoughts away =)

I'm sorry for your lost.
But, you should wait for The 3DS, save your Cash, so you can a get a game for it.
For you, the day LordJumpMad graced your threads, was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.

I'm sorry to hear that not so long story, but I'd recommend waiting. No use buying another console so near the release of the 3DS. But yeah, no way you're going to get that replaced.
This would never happen with me though, because I'm super OCD when it comes to taking my portables anywhere, and I have a wrist starp and shell that I keep it in. I never let anyone touch it unless they wash their hands (even me) and always know where it is at all times. But you didn't really ask did you, so nvm

wait two months, you can probably transfer just by SD card, besides why buy tech that'll be outdated in two months without another update for 5 years.

We don't know yet how (or when) DSiWare transfers are going to work. Odds are you'd need the old DSi to get it to work (at the least, the system numbers), but we don't know for sure.The advice here is so funny. Yup, you should definitely wait, but I couldn't go that long DSi-less, either! heh

Dude, way better off just getting the 3DS, and figuring out what to do with that DSiWare you have. It's sad to have something like that break. I've ruined many of my electronics in the most strangest of ways.

Ouch, that really sucks. Sorry to hear that about your DSi.
I recommend you just wait for the 3DS to come out since we are so close to the launch date. You will save money that way, especially since the 3DS will cost $250 and will most likely not get any cheaper than that for a long time.

Wow, that is a horrible tale you experienced.
Very sad to hear, Zono.

Don't Fret my pet, as the 3DS is on the double, and I bet it smells like sparkly bubbles.
Really though if it makes you feel any better I'm on my 5th DS Lite now. My first one screen's ended up getting severely clouded which was my fault, my second one's hinges broke, my third one is stuck in storage at an X-friends house with Contra 4 stuck inside of it, I bought my 4th one off eBay used suprisingly only to get screwed over by a faulty unit with clouded screens, and finally my 5th I just bought in Sept which is doing just dandy But I honestly want a White DS Lite, my Cobalt and Black DS Lite just isn't the same.
Anyways, Hold out for the 3DS. But then again, I'm sure you want to get your DS fix on in the time being before the launch of the 3DS...So it's a tough call.Besides I'm sure you'd want to have a DS Lite / DSi or XL anyways for your collection, so I'd say fork over the cash and just get one.

If your dad was my dad then "i found some black shards of plastic" would mean "i found your DSi but i won't give it back until you suffer a little".

If it makes you feel any better, I almost lost my DSi down a storm drain and totally broke down.
