Introducing: Nintendo DS-i
Maybe they’re trying a little too hard to be like Apple with the name, but nonetheless, Nintendo has announced the DS-i, the new Nintendo DS.
The DS-i will feature a .3 megapixel camera (640 x 480), larger screens and no GBA slot. There will also be an SD card slot to save those pictures onto, as well as some audio enhancements. All in all, this will run you about $180 early next year, whenever this thing comes to the US.
If you’re interested, Kotaku has some good pictures of the DS-i ready for your perusal.
Personally, the tiny camera seems a tad underwhelming to me. I was hoping for something a little more substantial, it just seems like a slightly improved DS Lite. If, as the rumors say, this is supposed to compete with the PSP in terms of a media device, I’m not really seeing it from this small list of features. But maybe I’m crazy. Thoughts?
