No, the interesting bit, which makes us fully doubt this, is that according to his translation, the bundle will include not only 358/2 Days, but Chain of Memories as well -- and that the included DSi will include Game Boy Advance compatibility.
Due to the quality of the picture, we can't make out a lot of the kanji, but we can clearly see mentions in katakana of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and the Game Boy Advance. Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories is written out too, but not correctly. It doesn't matter what it says, in the end, because this is a picture of a page some guy typed.
In real Kingdom Hearts news, Gamespot has a hands-on preview of 358/2 Days, describing in detail a playthrough of the TGS demo.

-_- You made such a long post just to debunk it all...

Well seeing as the DSi offers downloadable games it could be that it'll come installed with KH:CoM... maybe Nintendo will take this the same was at the Wii and offer some backcatalogue games on download...

My friend just translated it:
Nintendo DSI Limited Edition Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Collectors Bundle
Limited Edition Nintendo DSi
Completely compatible with all Game Boy Advanced Games
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Nintendo DS Game
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories
Halfway through Q2, 2009

Wich means, it comes with chain of memories, but i'm in the side that comes installed, and that nintendo will let you download previous gameboy games. Just like Wii and his Virtual Console

They're not going to manufacture an entirely different hardware revision, and especially not just for a bundle with a single game.
10-10-2008 @ 10:26PM
If that's true, I will seriously consider importing it.
And...when is 358/2 Days coming to the US? I need my Kingdom Hearts fix!

Chain of Memories GBA version shouldn't matter to KH fans anymore, they're bringing the 3D PS2 remake over here on December 2nd.
I'm really wondering if Nintendo might change their mind about dropping the GBA slot...but keeping the currently announced features of the DSi...

*KHCOM (no colon, ALL-CAPS)
Anyway, this would excite me so if I didn't know (or at least suspect, looking at SE's track record) that the slotted DSi would be some blindingly bright color. I WANT A DARK BUNDLE SYSTEM, DAMMIT!
However, a slotted DSI model IS very interesting, and if I were to get the bundle, if such a bundle were released in the US, y'think that the included COM would have VA work from the English version of Re:CoM injected in? That would be a nice touch, and would justify playing it again, balancing out my anger enough at getting uber-files on my current pak.

Oh, and *Game Boy Advance (no past-tense, and three seperate words)
10-11-2008 @ 1:17PM
what? theres no official one... ur rite about the colon tho the Japanese SE site doesn't use it but the European one does so yeah... however CoM would be the gramatically correct abbreviation but whatever

You slipped up. *DSi ;3

Looks fake. The Japanese is grammatically wrong and the name of "chain of memories" is actually translated into Japanese rather than being katakana English, like the official version. I'd say it's a hoax put together by someone who needs to brush up on their Japanese skills just a little more.

So... wait... is 358/2 gonna be DS lite compatible or what?
10-12-2008 @ 5:31PM
I would've thought so, seeing as its been in development for quite a while, but Nintendo may have had the DSi in mind for a while now, and told big developers about it. But it's more than likely 100% DSL compatible
