The Daily Hotness: Will you buy the DSi?

The DSi is hitting the U.S. on April 5, just two days after my birthday! Like Colette though, I have no desire to pick one up. I love the DS Lite and all of the extra features of the DSi just don’t appeal to me. How about you? Planning on getting one?

Jonthan talked to the creators of Meat Boy, go vote for the official Podtoid graphic in the Forums, Dead Space Extraction looks promising, the console wars are over, and plenty more happened on 02/18/09.
