Did you know that putting your Nintendo DS through the rinse cycle causes it to quit working? I forgot that factoid a few months ago. Now, I keep it on my desk. It is a reminder of my neglect. Whenever I steal a gaze at the busted machine, I tell myself that the DSi will be a fresh start.
My redemption opportunity may be coming sooner than expected. IGN is reporting that the DSi will hit American shores in April – perhaps April 4 – for the retail price of $179.99. The information comes from “multiple sources close to Nintendo.” Chances are Reggie isn’t the one who let the DSi out of the bag.
How many of you are thinking about getting a DSi? It’s not a crazy revision, but it seems like just enough to pull consumers back in. Will Nintendo strike gold again or are you content with what you have?
