    Rumor: Nintendo DSi coming to US on April 4 at $179

    IGN reports that "multiple sources close to Nintendo" have told the site that the Big N's latest handheld will make the trip across the Pacific in April. "The company has allegedly relayed to its partners that DSi will ship stateside in early April, most likely on April 4," IGN writes.

    These same sources have put a $179.99 price tag on the DSi for its domestic release. In contrast, DSi retails for ¥18,900 ($210) in Japan, where it launched on November 1, 2008.

    Not really Wii news, but Nintendo related none-the-less. This date would make sense as it is tax return season and retailers love putting things on sale around that time.

    "The DSi, which was announced in October 2008 and launched a month later in Japan, features larger display screens, dual 0.3 megapixel digital cameras, SD card support and internal storage. It drops the original DS's Game Boy Advance port, making the device incompatible with some DS games."

    i personally doubt it will come this year.

    my reason?

    Nintendo stated that they would release the DSi in america when the DS lite's sales begin to drop.

    And apparently the DS lite sales in America haven't been dropping :|.

    also I was told that the camera on the outside of the DS is 3 megapixels while the camera can the inside is .3megapixels .
