Online PR News – 16-December-2009 – – It is reported that Nintendo DSi LL is about to be released in North America and Europe in early 2010.
Nintendo has taken the wraps off a new version of the DSi handheld that sports larger 4.25-inch dual screens. The portable gaming unit will be considerably bigger than current and previous DS and DSi models. It will be dubbed the DSi LL in Japan where it goes on sale on November 21 for 20,000 yen (about $220). In Europe, the unit will be known as the DSi XL when it appears on store shelves in the first quarter of 2010. Nintendo did not provide details on a possible North American launch.
Going big seems to be the last thing that today’s culture wants in handheld technology. With the exception of plasma screen tvs, the smaller techolgy gets these days, the better they seem to become! ; see iPods, phones and hybrid cars.
Apparently, Nintendo doesnt think so (they like to go against the grain, apparently). The nintendo DSi LL ( or XL) is coming the North American and European markets next year (I know you know Japan already has it). Why is it called LL? I think it’s because the unit is bigger than the DSi…but thats just a guess.
Physically, everything is is bigger on the LL, even the stylus. Internally though, its the same as its little brother; 256 megs of memory is built in, and the unit itself can still play all DSi games. It still cant, however, play any GameBoy Advanced titles.
In addition, games are reportedly going to look sharper on the new DSi’s big screen. The DSi LL was released in Japan earlier this year and will see a North American and European release in the first quarter of 2010.
