First Look video: Nintendo DSi

CNET gets its hands on the Nintendo DSi portable gaming system due out April 5.


Nintendo stopped by our CNET New York offices Wednesday afternoon to give us a sneak peek at the brand new Nintendo DSi. We had plenty of hands-on time with the portable gaming device and have a good idea what we can expect from the various built-in media features.

We also got a taste of some features we're just not allowed to talk about yet. Unfortunately, we weren't able to hold on to a DSi, but we were assured we'd be getting our review sample soon.

For now, check out our First Look video of the DSi where we run through the main features and provide a side-by-side comparison with the DS Lite.

The Nintendo DSi will be available April 5 for $170. Keep your bookmarks here for our full review in the days leading up.
