The new Nintendo DSi LL - is big really beautiful?
After days of rumours rumbling across the face of the globe, Nintendo have finally confirmed them - a largescreen DS console is on the way in time for Christmas - at least if you live in Japan. The gaming gods have heard the kerching of the tills and launched the DSi LL (for the love of God, just give it a name!), the daddy of the DS series with a 4.2" screen - some 93 per cent larger than the DS Lite:
Are we the only folk who think this is starting to look a little less sleek and a little too bulky? It's hardly netbook size but it's not quite the light slip of gaming heaven you can shove in your pocket. Maybe it's the ghastly red-wine moulding, but we're not fans.
The DSi LL goes on sale in Japan on November 21st for 20,000 Yen (£134) although there's no word if they'll ship to the UK in time for Christmas.
