  • I have a dsi gaming system and it does work with it because I have professor layton's diabolical box and I play it on my dsi. I have most of the professor layton games and they all play on my dsi.

  • go ahead and buy this game if you are wanting it because it does work and can be played there on your DSi!!!! I can promise you this here 100% because that is what I have....the DSi that is and I've played all 4 of the Professor Layton games there on my DSi...even though the cover shows DS!!!! now the newest Professor Layton game is for the 3DS and it will not work nor can it be played there on your DSi :-( Ihave heard here though that some of the Ebay DS games will not work on these players, so therefore I always just buy my games new from Wal-Mart here!!!! may cost me more than Ebay, but that's ok here too :-)

  • I don't know why an Ebay posting would say that. I have a DSi and both the Professor Layton games work just fine.
