I (foolishly) just purchased a DSi XL on eBay on behalf of a friend. I then read the description (i know...I know...) And it says it's region is NTSC-C. Can anybody tell me if this will prevent it from playing cartridges purchased here in the UK?
Any advice on this would be gratefully received. Including the obvious "Read the description before you buy anything on eBay!"

Hi, Garmit - the good news is that the vast majority of Nintendo DS games are region-free, so will work absolutely fine on your Nintendo DSi XL. There are only two exceptions:
Other than that, you should be good to go. I think NTSC-C is China-based, though there might be a language option to switch to English if that is the case.

If you want to purchase anything from the e-shop you'll have to search online for a Nintendo points card from China. I bought a DSi on eBay not knowing it was a US version. I don't have a problem with it.

Nintendo DSi-only Game Cards - these games will only play on a Nintendo DSi system. One example - possibly the only example, actually - is the first-party software Face Training, which requires the use of the cameras. All of these game cards are region-locked.
I think there are only four DSi-exclusive games in the world. Face Training is the only EU exclusive (released in Japan as a normal DS game with a camera attachment requiring the GBA slot, neither version was released in North America).
Foto Showdown was released in Japan and North America. Picture Perfect Hair Salon was released in NA and AU (according to Wikipedia), and System Flaw was NA-only.
So, total 1 game in Japan, AU and EU, 3 in NA.

You missed Hidden Photo, which was retail in Europe, als Hair Salon was released in Europe.
