Yes you’ve read right, The DSi system is already out in Japan, but for the rest of the world, you will have to wait until at least summer of next year. It was released for ¥18,900 or about $192. The price has gone up since about a month ago because of a skyrocket in the yen. Hit the jump to find out more.
It seems as if Japan knows nothing of the economic troubles facing most of the rest of the world. Nintendo is rearing up to have 300,000 units available for launch this week in Japan. Will all of these units sell? Only time will tell.
I dunno, I’m sort of in the middle on this. Yet again Nintendo just offers a handheld upgrade, and not an entirely new system. Of course I could eat my words, and see exclusive DSi games, and its link with Nintendo’s WiFi is neat, but I can’t get that excited for something that feels like nothing. What do you think?
