I hated holding the DSi. For whatever sick reasons God had, he decided to mold my hands in a very ‘unique’ way. My palms are huge, and my fingers are the size of macaronis. Making a fist would be almost impossible as my fingers – which are so short – don’t overlap when closing my hands. Maybe I’m exaggerating, but still… the DSi did my hand no justice, which is why I’m excited to hear that the DSi XL finally has a release date and price announced for North America. Yea… I’m a fan of gargantuan tech toys.
At its Media Summit today, Nintendo announced that it’s hefty-sized DSi XL would be releasing on March 28 in North America with a meaty price of $189.99 (a $20 increase over it’s undersized sibling) to match its size. The DSi XL comes with a much larger screen and a much more adult-friendly stylus. With the Nintendo Media Summit continuing today, we’re hoping to hear of some new titles that might accompany it with its launch.
Born and raised in New York City, Yaris is one of three co-founders at DualShockers. Gaming since the inception of Nintendo in the 80's, he has grown to avidly appreciate games of every genre, maturing his preference specifically now to third-person action games, first-person shooters and JRPGs. He's a software engineer, father and husband during the day, and mildly attempts to hold onto his "hardcore gamer" title during the evenings. An attempt that he tends to fail miserably at.
