if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Nintendo themselves have never announced any kind of deal like this, which they would totally be all over if they were indeed partnered with that website in order to provide content in any kind of downloadable form -- and note that you'd need some kind of flashcart in order to play these newly downloaded games (it'd be the only way to get 'em onto your DSi, since you can't download things directly to system memory from the Browser), and Ninty has been doing their best to take out flashcart distributors at every turn.

bottom line, current-gen DS/i games are only available either at retail or in the DSi Shop. anything else is piracy.

they're not looking to sway casuals who own Wiis, gabe, they're looking to pick up new casuals in the market for a console to play who may not have considered a PS3 or an Xbox before Move/Natal. there's still plenty of those milling about, lol.

Wrestling games usually have really in depth character creation. The Smackdown series and Day of Reckoning series. You can have regular clothes or wrestling attire. Change height, weight, eyes, lips, size of bodies, hair, facial hair, thigh sizes etc etc. Create men or women. You did not specify what genre of games you enjoy so it is hard to recommend much.

oh yes, seconding the Smackdown vs. Raw series at the very least. I spent two hours customizing the heck out of a character for my husband and it really looks just like him. the customization in those games (or 2009, at least) is ridiculously detailed.

@MariosLoveChild: probably for the best, or at least, try a different place. Amazon.com keeps sellers and buyers regional, so you wouldn't really have to worry about dealing with people from HK there i don't think, and idk what game stores you've got over there in the UK (or which ones sell games online), but they may have some discounts on used copies and the like.

the problem with eBay is that popular games (anything first-party in particular) are often counterfeited, so you must be very careful to make sure you're buying the real thing. If they're saying they don't work on the DSi, chances are those two specific cartridges are counterfeits. the DSi is fully compatible with all genuine DS cartridges, but counterfeits rely on exploits that no longer exist on the DSi in order to run 'properly' (if they run properly at all on a DS anyway, lol).

where are the auctions you looked at coming from? if it's China or Hong Kong, that in conjunction with them saying they won't work on the DSi is a dead give-away.
