Nintendo Announces "Wee" Changes to the DS
For example, the screens are slightly larger, at 3.25". The device is slimmer, about 12%, due to the dropping of the GBA slot. It will, however, include an SD slot. Additionally, it gains an external 3 megapixel camera and an internal 0.3 megapixel camera, and music playback capability. It also features a built-in web browser, all the better to use the new DSi Shop, similar to the Wii Ship, and using Nintendo Points (not Wii points).
The new system will ship in black or white, and for about $180 in Japan starting on Nov. 1st. Other countries? According to Nintendo, they will have to wait for 2009.
