Nintendo DSi question

both of my kids got DSi's for Christmas and they have been playing the hell out of them. my oldest came to me a few weeks ago and mentioned that they wanted to play against each other at a certain game. I said it wasn't possible and she mentioned that some of her friends do it all the time. is it possible, and if so, how do I set it up?

TIA

you just go to the options screen on the game and link the two dsi together. you dont need two of the same games in order for it to work. my nephew and my son play mario kart on it all the time using my sons game. its easy to set up, my nephews 6. if he can set it up then you sure as hell can do it.

dont need anything for both of them to connect. its built into the DSi's. Go to options menu when you have a game loaded. make sure its a game that can allow for multiplayer and they should interface with one another.

this should work. my son and my nephew arent here so i cant verify this. but its from the nintendo website:


Nintendo DSi - DS Download Play

DS Download Play lets multiple Nintendo DS units share one DS Game Card for multiplayer action, or in some cases, send and receive game demos. DS Download Play works with all models of Nintendo DS (Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS Lite, and Nintendo DSi).

Can't choose DS Download Play? Make sure you don't have Parental Controls enabled (more info) that may be preventing you from using this feature.

To use DS Download Play:

On the DS system that is hosting (sending) the game:
1. Insert a Game Card in the DS Game Card slot. The label should face towards the bottom of the Nintendo DSi (more info).
* Games and accessories must be inserted before the unit is turned on, otherwise the unit will not detect them.
* If you have trouble inserting the Game Card, eject it and confirm that it is facing the right direction (more info).
2. Press POWER to turn on the system.
3. From the Nintendo DSi main menu, tap the Game Card icon, then select the appropriate option from within the game.

On the Client/Receiving System(s):
4. On the Nintendo DSi Menu, use the stylus to select the DS Download Play icon.
5. Select the title of the game you wish to download, then select "Yes" to begin downloading. The game downloaded from the other DS will remain until the DS is turned off.

Note: In some instances, it is required that the players are connected and playing wirelessly. In these instances, the game will no longer be playable after the DS with the game is turned off.

It's all dependent on the game in question. Take the plastic shell/box for the game, turn it over and on the back it will tell you the multiplayer options if there are any. Download play, or if both players have to have the game cartridge.
