Speaking at a meeting with analysts and reporters today, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has strongly implied that the United States will see the DSi released in the spring or summer of 2009.
"Specific plans will be unveiled by our local subsidiaries, but an autumn or year-end launch would probably be too late," Iwata stated with regards to the DSi's overseas released.
Nintendo's DS remake will hit Japanese shelves on Saturday, where it is to retail for 18,900 yen ($192). 200,000 units have already been shipped by Nintendo, and the house of waggle will be shipping a further 100,000 from November 4.
Has anybody considered picking this up? I'm happy with my DS just the way it is, but does a camera and music support speak to some of the readers? Let us know.
