Nintendo Finally Admits to New DS Design

I can't do that, Dave.

As per The Register’s Hardware section (thanks, Araan!), Nintendo has finally set us up the bomb.

 

The Nintendo DSi will launch in Japan on November 1st.  Contrary to popular rumor, the DSi still only has one touchscreen.  It will also sport a 3 Megapixel digital camera, an SD card slot, very slightly larger screens (3.25″ v. 3″), and improved audio.  It will also be a tad slimmer due to the removal of the GBA slot.

 

All in all, this is a nice update, but if you already have a smartphone, probably nothing to write home about. I’ll withhold final judgment until i can hear the “improved audio” for myself.

 

The Nintendo DSi will cost ¥18,900/USD $179 when it is released next month in Japan.  No word yet on when Europe or North America will see it on their shores.

 

Happy Birthday, Petrov!

Happy Cake Day to my husband, the Weiner Daddy!  Many thanks for your understanding and long suffering through so many games.  I know it’s a real hardship.  We love you!
