PerezStart’s Nintendo DSi – My New Toy!


Today I received a very special package.  The NEW Nintendo DSi.  While my first impression on the device was “beautifully crafted” there will be a write-up review on the DSi coming shortly.  Of course the DSi did not come fully charged, so after I entered in all my personal settings, dangling from the wall jack it is.

Release Date – Out Now
Price – $169.99
Black – Nintendo DSi Nintendo DSi Hitting Shelves April 5th, Pre order options
Blue – Nintendo DSi Nintendo DSi Hitting Shelves April 5th, Pre order options

While I enjoyed my review on GTA: Chinatown Wars, I see future games of interest that will make the DSi a must own device. ex. Rhythm Heaven and Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.  Let’s just hope the camera on the DSi was better than the one on my phone.. ouch!

Those of you with a DS, do you see yourself upgrading to a DSi?

Those who don’t own a portable gaming device, would you pick up the DSi or Sony’s PSP?

  1. I would probably pick up the DSi because of the camera! LOL.. I wish I could grab one to the nearest tech store soon, where can I pre-order because stocks might be limited?

  2. Yeah, i think they made the dual cameras fun enough to allow people to use it. I hope for good 🙂

    well, if you want the DSi now I’d try Gamestop. Although Amazon is another reliable source. I put the link above for the Black or Blue DSi.

  3. They need to throw in more than just a camera and a couple extras for me to upgrade. At this stage, there’s no real “need”. Regular old DS Lite is fine.

  4. Where’d you take this picture? In your closet? In the oven? Jesus. Would it kill you to put a little light on that sucker?

    The two screens are bigger than the DS Lite’s, the speakers are said to sound better, an added SD card slot, and the inclusion of the DSi Shop is a good enough hardware upgrade to warrant it a worthy buy. Nintendo would have been nuts to go for an altogether hardware update since the DS right now is a highly recognizable console to both hardcore & casual players. To go out and give the DS a full upgrade would only confuse and possibly turn off casual players (which is where Nintendo is getting most of their money these days)
