Nintendo DSi to Arrive In 2009
Recently, Nintendo has launched the DSi in Japan, selling over 170,000 units of the handheld gaming system. Overall, the company shipped around 200,000 systems to Japan to go to their retailers at launch, and it seems like the large number really was made up for in sales. Even though the DSi sold well in Japan and handheld gaming systems are increasing in popularity, Nintendo does not plan on releasing the system to the western market until as late as summer of 2009. Many holiday shoppers will possibly pick up the DS Lite instead, though some will wait for a later date and buy the largely anticipated Nintendo DSi that features a slimmer profile and a built-in camera.
