Nintendo Takes Another Gamble
How many of you are a proud owner of a DSi? I know I am. Well, it just so happens that in Japan, Nintendo is releasing another iteration of its very successful hand held. The new system is called the DSi L L/XL. You may be asking yourself, why in the world would they call it xl? Well for one reason, its bigger, MUCH BIGGER. The DSi XL measures 161 x 91.4 x 21.2 mm (6.34 x 3.6 x 0.83″), 1.61x the total volume of the DSi, and 1.48x the volume of the DS Lite. It weighs 314 grams. The system will come pre-loaded with the DSi browser, Flipnote Studio, Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math and a Japanese Dictionary program. Honestly, it has to be the ugliest handheld I have seen in awhile.The XL will be released in Europe and North America sometime next year. This is one handheld I will not be picking it up.
