PostSubject: New Nintendo DS Announced!   Sun Oct 05, 2008 7:34 am


During their Fall Press Conference today, Nintendo have - as expected -
announced a new version of the Nintendo DS. Called the Nintendo DSi, it
eschews the GBA slot (boo!) in favour of a slight downsizing (it's a
little thinner) and a range of improvements. The handheld's screens
have been enlarged, and will now be 17% bigger (at 3.25 inches) than
those found on the DS Lite. As for the rumoured additions, both have
proven to be correct, with "audio enhancements" made to the handheld,
while it will also now include a .3 megapixel (640x480) camera. And
that's just the start of it.

The DSi also features an SD memory card slot, making it possible to
take pictures with the DSi and then view them on the Nintendo Wii. The
DSi features a built-in browser, and it's possible to download games
and keep them on the DSi.

For digital delivery purchases, there is a DSi Shop, from which users
can download DSiWare from. Pricing categories for the DSiWare are:
Free, 200 points, 500 points and "Premium" or 800 points. Customers
will get 1000 free points to spend at the DSi Shop that are good until
March 2010.

The DSi will be released in Japan on November 1. It will retail for
¥18,900 (USD$180), and will be available in two colours, white and
black. It will be released in other markets sometime "next year".


So. Nintendo have released the first official shots of the new Nintendo DSi. And here they are!




Nintendo's announced the DSi, the third iteration of its DS platform.
But how does it stack up to the Nintendo DS Lite? We've crunched the

Announced today at a Nintendo press conference in Tokyo, here are the
first non-PR pictures of the Nintendo DSi, including a look at the
portable's box. Nothing quite like packaging. After the jump, there's a
close-up of the DSi, a blurry close-up at that. But it does show the
new DSi interface.

So, what are your thoughts? I'm picking one up when it comes out in NA.
