I just received this in my monthly Nintendo DS News Email. The new Nintendo DSi XL is coming March 28, 2010. Click the image to visit the site.




I have a Nintendo DS, but never bought a DSi. I might buy a DSi XL, though. A 93% larger screen seems like a pretty good idea for us old folks.

Haha oldmanswim Razz The DS for me is really only good for mini-game-esque games...so the size of the screen makes no difference to me. Not too fussed honestly Razz

Even better would be if it could connect to Skype and make "free" calls! Take that PSP!

Looks like Nintendo is milking their old technology (games and consoles). My pocket-sized DS lite is fine for me.

Do you guys remember those YouTube videos I posted by that South Korean girl band, Girl's Generation? Of course you do!

I learned that they're marketing the DS in South Korea. Haha! Go them. Unfortunately, the commercials aren't even close to their commercial for the Chocolate phone, which was its own music video.

Lol, the commercial is only 15 seconds. There wasn't enough to convince me to buy. I don't know why companies bother having celebrities advertise games when they are better off showing the gameplay in that 15-30 seconds. We all know celebrities don't play games. -_-

That's okay. This is still using old technology. I'm waiting for the new Nintendo 3DS that will be backward compatible and also play new titles in 3D. There's tons of news on it that came out last week. I've just been too busy to share.

Here's one link that shows a DSi title and how it might use the technology.

For the traditional news types, here's the press release on the NY Times web site.

Yeah I can't wait to see the 3D DS at E3 this Summer. They said it's going to be the last DS though on IGN. So I think by 2012 we can expect a DS2 or a new Gameboy. Probably won't ever see a new Gameboy, so I'm thinking a DS2 is more likely haha. There have also been rumors about an HD Wii being announced at E3. I mean once you've put a Wii and a DS in almost every home, the only thing left to do is expand. I'd hope they'd provide some better titles for the Wii first though, they don't have enough good ones yet haha.

Nintendo hit the market hard with the Wii, but with both XBox 360 and PS3 coming out with motion controller on systems that already have hi-def, imho they'll be hard-pressed to break into the market with a new system.

Yeah that's true. I don't think the motion controls on the PS3 or the 360 are going to do a whole lot. The average market and the hardcore gamer both already have wii's. The average market won't buy a PS3 or a 360 for motion controls because they don't really understand or care about the difference. They already have wii's so they don't know why they'd need to buy a different system. Most Hardcore gamers already have a Wii too as well as a PS3 or 360, so it's not going to really push a console for them either. I think the PS3 controller is better than the Wii's, but it's too similar and I don't want to fork out another 100 bucks for it when I already have a Wii haha. Natal looks like a good experiment, but it's definitely not going to get me to buy a 360. I'm very happy with my PS3 and my Wii haha.

I have a PS3 and a Wii, but I have absolutely no desire to buy a 360. I cannot even remember the last time I turned on my Wii. It's fun with a group of people, but not really the system for a hardcore gamer.

Haha nope not really. I don't play it much by myself, but I always take it to parties because it's got so many great party games. It's also the only system my family touches. They only watch movies on the PS3 haha. It's got a few good hardcore games, but it's just not the level of what the PS3 and the 360 can produce.
