New larger Nintendo DS coming to U.S. in 2010
Nintendo DS goes supersize: Introducing the DS XL
Apparently, smaller is out and big is in. According to several video game insiders Nintendo is due to release next month in Japan a new DS that has 4.25 inch screens (much larger than the 3' inch screen of the current model) that has an 80% larger screen area. It overall will be longer and thicker. Even the stylus will be jumbo sized!
I'm not sure about the logic behind this,(I thought everyone always wants smaller!) I mean isn't the PSP doing poorly because of size? From what I hear it is going to be marketed to older and younger gamers who have trouble viewing the current 3 inch screen.
The price point is expected to be higher than the DSI current price point of $169.99 here in the U.S. It should launch in North America sometime in first quarter 2010.
