Nintendo names UK DSi launch date

Sooner than expected

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Nintendo has revealed that it’ll launch the latest addition to its DS handheld console range – the DSi – in Europe this April.

The DSi was originally expected to land in Europe during the summer, but Register Hardware reported last month how a Nintendo document had revealed the firm’s plans to bring the launch forward to “Spring-Summer 2009”.

But now Nintendo’s official word is that the console will be available in a choice of black or white casings from 3 April.

HMV is already accepting advance DSi orders online, which will cost £147 ($209/€166).

The DSi is the thinnest and lightest DS console yet, according to Nintendo, but beefs up the regular DS Lite's media capabilities with a 3Mp camera integrated into the lid and an SD memory card slot in the side.

The console’s audio capabilities have been improved too, adding in the ability to adjust pitch and playback. ®
