Facebook integrated into Nintendo DSi Nintendo has announced Facebook integration in the DSi handheld, following a recent firmware update that will now allow you to upload pictures taken on the handheld right to your FB profile.
The integration is now available in the US, EU, Australia and Japan.

According to GI.biz, "the update means that when users are reviewing photos they have stored in their DSi camera album, they see a Facebook icon on the touchscreen which, when tapped, instantly transmits the photo to the user's Facebook profile."

"Facebook and Nintendo DSi build on the trend of personalisation that is so important to consumers,"
adds Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive VP of sales and marketing. "We're giving people the tools to express themselves in creative new ways and show off the results to their friends and family on Facebook."

Not to mention the fact that this firmware blocks out ALL flash carts including Acekard 2i.

Are you going to need to update the firmware to play games online? If so that sucks (for flash card users) but I've never found the online compelling for DS games anyway. Too many cheaters online. It's ridiculous. Online gaming for a lot of 360 games is also ruined but it's a downright joke on the DS. If online on the Wii is anything like the DS, that would be terrible.

I agree about the cheaters but something much worse has happened. You cant use the flascart.....AT ALL. It wont turn on.

That's interesting. It's bad enough that we have adults in Facebook
that are up to no good, now we are going to have kiddies posting the hell out of pics. As Jackie Gleason once said: "What the hell is this world coming to?" - BLUEBOY
