Weeks before E3, Nintendo has lowered the price of some of its older gaming handhelds even further, but not far enough.
The company unveiled the new-look device on Twitter today. The new DSi comes in a matte finish.
At the end of the day, the DSi XL is exactly the same as the DSi, so unless you're desperate for more touch-screen real estate, or your vision is impaired, we can't recommend a purchase over the original DSi.
That's an unusually good deal, meaning supplies probably won't last long. The only question mark is the warranty: there doesn't seem to be one. (Just a 30-day return.)
While not all previous DS owners should upgrade, the DSi is an ambitious and solidly designed portable gaming system.
Nintendo will be offering orange and green DSi bundles to customers starting Friday. The bundles will retail for $149.99 while supplies last.
Nintendo plans to release a Red Wii bundle a Red Nintendo DSi XL bundle on November 7. Also coming: a Wii Remote Plus for better control of on-screen action.
Exuberant yellow Pokemon mascot brings its cheerful countenance to game systems.
Nintendo has decided to cut the price of the DSi starting in September. The Nintendo DS Lite's price will remain unchanged.
Nintendo's brought back some of its original pre-Game Boy handheld games for download on DSiWare.
