Internet for only DS lite?

Opera (the web browser) has announced that their software is going to be released in the new Nintendo DS Lite, users in Japan will be able to surf the web with their Nintendo DS. With the stylus like PDA control, users will be able to surf the web with style. This is a real advancment in Nintendo DS Software, being able to connect to WiFi was great, now it has an actual browser to surf the web!.

i do not have a link for proof sorry, i got it off zelda forums and i think that its a load of crap if its only for DS lite,they should allow you to replace your DS for the new one if the web is only for DS lite.

It won't require a DS Lite.

None of Opera's own press regarding the release mentions the Lite at all. To quote their own press release, "Users simply insert the card into the Wi- Fi enabled Nintendo DS, connect to a network, and begin browsing on two screens." No other mention of requirements has been made.

Re: Internet for only DS lite?

I had heard about this before and read an article on slashdot. Apparantly it's just a cartridge that you can use on any model of DS. Here's the link to the article:

http://www.opera.com/pressreleases/en/2006/02/15/

As the article says, they are only currently planning to have it released in Japan. If it ever comes out here in North America, I'm so there.

EDIT: Ha, Dryth, you beat me by two minutes. Next time I'll be quicker on the draw...

It's a web browser. It only has the purpose of browsing the web.

Re: Internet for only DS lite?

They are releasing 2 versions, 1 for the DS lite and 1 for the normal DS, the reason why is that the GBA slot on the Lite is smaller then the normal, normal GBA cartridges stick out 1 Cm, so they have made a new cart for the DS Lite for it to fit in the GBA slot.

Sources somewhere but I think that is why!

Oh crap I just remembered about my Rumble Pak, that truly does suck, although it did come with Metroid Pinball, I am not going to buy a new Metroid pinball if they release the new rumble pak for the lite, most likely with a new game, but still.

You aren't missing out on much. Only Metroid Pinball and Mario and Luigi Partners in Time supports it...and it sound like a fricking motor boat every time it rumbles.

no. The Opera web browser does not support Flash/Java... so thus you cannot play Runescape.

Ya know, I actually have nothing to contribute to this topic. Other than: The internet on my DS sounds cool, but I don't really need it. I am content with my PC.
