This week on preGAME, hosts Jeff Bakalar and Mark Licea welcome special guest Russ Frushtick (MTV Multiplayer) as they take a first look at the Nintendo DSi XL! We have two units in the studio today and give a ton of comparisons, first impressions, and take live questions from our chat room. We'll also talk about the odd timing of  Nintendo's 3DS announcement.

Also on today's show is a live demo of Just Cause 2, the open-world go-anywhere blow-up-anything action-adventure title. We'll chat with George Wright, the game's associate producer, about how the sequel has gone way above and beyond the original.

But before our live demo, we'll tell you everything there is to know about Modern Warfare 2's upcoming downloadable map pack called "Stimulus Package" set to release on March 30 for Xbox 360. Then we'll see some more hands-on video with PlayStation Move as Jeff got to play with the new technology at a Sony event on Monday night in New York.

Want to be a part of our live taping? Make sure you head to http://cnet.com/live/pregame every Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.
