Nintendo DSi XL arrives with smallest press release ever



1:00 PM on 03.23.2010

Nintendo sent along a retail Nintendo DSi XL, and it arrived today... with the smallest press release and fact sheet ever.

To give you an idea, I've taken a picture of it next to my four-month-old's foot. She's got tiny feet because, well, she's a baby. The ridiculous press release is about the same size as her foot. (Man, am I glad we had this baby before this thing arrived.) Yes, it's completely readable, but now I have a headache. Thanks, Nintendo.

I was able to gather some info I didn't know about the DSi XL, and maybe you didn't either. At its lowest brightness setting, this sucker will give you between 13 and 17 hours of play time. The screens are 4.2 inches a piece and... no seriously, my head hurts from reading this thing.

I'll have a full unboxing (it was, uh, messy) and hands-on impressions later, so stay tuned.
