Last night, Nintendo held an event for platinum members of Club Nintendo to try out the new DSi. Quite a few interesting tidbits were shared at the event, including that DSi owners will be able to download Game Boy and GBA games. I am going to mark this as a rumor for now, however. We haven’t heard about this in Japan and Nintendo has yet to officially confirm the news.

– Will be only able to download Nintendo GBA/GB titles at first
– GBA/GB games will be region-locked
– Will be able to run the games from an SD card
– Calculators will be downloadable
– Opera available for download on DSi launch day
– Confirmed that owners will receive 1000 free points
