The DSI is the same games and mostly the same but with more features to it. For example the camera, wifi, songs, recording. Also, a new feature is added in Pictochat if you click the pen twice. Last, the DSI is not able to play any gameboy games because it does not have the slot for it. Oh and if you dont know you can switch it for your DS for $70. And if you just buy it and not switch it, it's $170. - from previous respondent

Good information, but fails to answer the question.

You asked: "Will you be able to play DSi games on a DS?"

And the simple answer is: No, you will not.

DSi games will ONLY play on the DSi, not the DS Lite nor the original DS unit. If you do get DSi games to play on the DS Lite or original unit, consider yourself lucky, because they're not meant to.
