Nintendo announces brand new colours for the latest member of the Nintendo DS family. Nintendo DSi XL will be available in yellow, blue and red in Australia and New Zealand.
The stylish Nintendo DSi XL launch colours Burgundy and Bronze will still be available, along with the brand new colour range. With the largest screens on a Nintendo DS model, Nintendo DSi XL comes with bonus pre-installed software and a longer battery life too!
Nintendo DSi XL is a larger console that contains bigger screens than any of the previous models, a wider viewing angle, the ability to immediately play with pre-installed software, longer battery life, improved sound, and a new, larger, more comfortable stylus.
The screens on Nintendo DSi XL are 4.2", which makes the screen on Nintendo DSi XL 93 per cent bigger than the Nintendo DS Lite screen. The wide-angle visibility of the larger screens makes Nintendo DSi XL perfect for sharing. Ponder over brain teasers with the person sitting next to you, or even surf the Internet together on the Nintendo DSi Browser.
The Nintendo DSi Browser is just one of the bonus pre-installed software options that comes free with Nintendo DSi XL. Other software already pre-installed includes: Clubhouse Games - Express Card Classics - Play classic card games on your Nintendo DSi XL.
A Little Bit of... Dr Kawashima's Brain Training: Arts Edition - features various challenges based on words, pictures and music that you can use regularly to keep your brain sharp in just a few minutes a day.
Photo Clock - Photo Clock turns your Nintendo DSi XL into a photo frame with added clock and alarm functions.
Flipnote Studio - Flipnote Studio is an application that can be used as a notepad along with the stylus. Users can also replay a number of pages of the memo pad to create animated sequences.
Nintendo DSi XL contains all of the features from Nintendo DSi, including Nintendo DSi Camera, Nintendo DSi Sound and Nintendo DSi Shop. Nintendo DSi XL still plays all of your favourite Nintendo DS.
I purchased this DSi XL from Fishpond. After waiting 3 weeks for delivery (!) we then discovered that the enclosed power adaptor is only suitable for the power supply in another country! My daughter was so excited and has been deflated by the fact that we now have to pay a visit to an electrical store to purchase an Australian adaptor! This is not easy for us as we live in a regional area.
I wish this had been stated in the product listing so that I could have been more informed prior to purchasing. Yes the price is great but the added cost in calls, petrol and the adaptor itself will be more than the discount's worth for us.
This aside (!) the actual product is brilliant and highly recommend. It has hours of fun built into it and my 11 year old thinks it's the best.
She will be even happier when she can use it due to the above huge mishap!!
My question is whats the point? this ds is like any other but has a larger screen for old people! And not to mention the price tag is more as well... And if that wasnt enough, there is a new 3d dsi coming out so why buy this one? Okay if you are a gamer who doesnt have a ds and is over the age of 35 it should be fine but for all younger gamers- theres no damn point! Stick with the origional. not to mention the disgusting colour
