Nintendo DSi is coming

The new small console from Nintendo, replacing the DS, is called DSi. It was introduced Thursday in Tokyo and et it will be available in a month, on November the 1st, for 18 900 Yens ($85) in Japan. :-)

With Wii and DS, Nintendo has boosted both the company and the entire video game market. These 2 innovative consoles has increased a lot Nintendo sales since 2005.

The DS was the first console not only for gaming, and of course the first with a touch screen, which inspire new kind of games using this capacity. It will be the same with DSi and its new video features.

What's new then is this little DSi:

  • it's 12% thinner than the DS,
  • the screen is a bit larger (3,5'),
  • it contains a camera on each side, on to film, the other to film yourself,
  • a SD card slot,
  • 512 MB of internal memory,
  • and as a major software bonus, a browser is installed.

The Wii owners often forget that it can also be a simplified Web terminal. That's why with the DSi, the browser is already installed. In Japan, Nintendo has even entered into a partnership with NTT an Internet provider. Of course the connection won't be free. :-p
