    Man, now that is hard to believe! I remember always having to ask for more batteries because we would churn through a package in a day and a half. Rechargeable batteries didn't last long either and took like 2 days to charge. So much patience was needed in playing the classics on the road back in the day.

    I really think they should have virtual console on the DSi. So not GBA. But GB and GBC games. Id love to play some of the original gameboy games which i never got to play. Also id love to play something like pokemon red.

    This is the sole reason I'm getting the DSi... if they don't do the virtual console and continue to come out with these new crappy games, I will be really disappointed with nintendo.

    Im sure they wont do GBA. Since like the wii dident do Gamecube virtual console as it was the 1 before so nintendo wont do GBA. But they should go GBC and GB. Id love playing red,blue,gold,silver and yellow. It would be so awsome having them games on there and taking them with you to play classic games.

    They might do GBA to remedy the lack of GBA slot. And I'm sure that they could put GC games on the virtual console, but they just didn't because A) it would be a lot to purchase and B) The wii could already play GC games.

    Bottom line, nintendo is stupid if they don't do some Gameboy normal, color, or advance games in the shop.
