For those of you who just bought the DS, well, you just got screwed, because Nintendo's coming out with a new version of the DS, Nintendo DSI. If you have any information or pictures, please post them here!
From www.dsfanboy.com: Nintendo's Media Summit has just thrown us its first juicy bone of the night, and it's a big one. As was previously rumored, Satoru Iwata has revealed the Nintendo DSi, the direct successor to the DS Lite which comes absolutely jam-packed with new features and trinkets, including two cameras, music playback functions, expanded screens, an SD card slot, and a whole new, DS-specific download service. Hit the break for the full list of improvements and adjustments, as well as the Japanese launch date and price!
Overall size has been reduced -- DSi is 12% or 2.6 millimeters slimmer than the Lite.
Comes with an external 0.3 Megapixel camera (for 640 x 480 pixel pictures) and a VGA camera located on the hinge, directed towards the user. You'll be able to edit pictures using the touchscreen.
Full music playback functionality, including adjustable pitch and playback speed.
Both screens have been expanded to 3.25 inches.
SD memory card slot is included, and there'll be on-board memory also.
Will ship with an built-in Nintendo DS web browser.
DSi will allow users to download games from DSWare, a new service that operates with Wii Points -- or, as they are now known, Nintendo Points.
Logging onto DSWare for the first time will grant users 1,000 free Nintendo Points.
DSWare comes in four pricing categories: free (!), 200 Nintendo Points, 500 Nintendo Points, and 800 Nintendo Points.
Will come in lovely matte white and matte black. Begone, foul fingerprints that have taunted us so!
And finally, it launches on November 1st in Japan, and will cost Â¥18,900, or roughly $179.
