Unboxed: the Nintendo DSi

An unboxing slide show with the new Nintendo DSi.

Nintendo sent us our Nintendo DSi review unit this morning. Follow along all the excitement step by step with our unboxing slide show . Like the previous two DS systems, the packaging is overly simple, very much in the vein of an Apple product.

Right away we noticed the free games promotion sticker we talked about last week . Anyone who purchases a DSi by October 5, 2009 will receive 1,000 free DSi Points to spend in the DSi Shop.

When we first turned the DSi on, we were greeted with a setup screen followed by a short tutorial that explains the various functions of the device's cameras.

The DSi goes on sale this Sunday, April 5 for $170. Check CNET this week for our full review!
