New Nintendo DS goes “i” and Dragon Ball movie trailer FAILS *update* NEW PUNCH-OUT game
During their Fall Press Conference today, Nintendo have – as expected – announced a new version of the Nintendo DS. Called the Nintendo DSi, it eschews the GBA slot (boo!) in favour of a slight downsizing (it’s a little thinner) and a range of improvements. The handheld’s screens have been enlarged, and will now be 17% bigger (at 3.25 inches) than those found on the DS Lite. As for the rumoured additions, both have proven to be correct, with “audio enhancements” made to the handheld, while it will also now include a .3 megapixel (640×480) camera. And that’s just the start of it.
The DSi also features an SD memory card slot, making it possible to take pictures with the DSi and then view them on the Nintendo Wii. The DSi features a built-in browser, and it’s possible to download games and keep them on the DSi.
For digital delivery purchases, there is a DSi Shop, from which users can download DSiWare from. Pricing categories for the DSiWare are: Free, 200 points, 500 points and “Premium” or 800 points. Customers will get 1000 free points to spend at the DSi Shop that are good until March 2010.
The DSi will be released in Japan on November 1. It will retail for ï¿¥18,900 (USD$180), and will be available in two colours, white and black.

So here’s what it looks like:
Personally, I’m still at the original boring grey model, huge ass DS. Â It didn’t get much use in the last few months, and I see it as a Phoenix Wright machine mostly. I know there’s a lot of good games, but I can only have so many RPG games unfinished before starting new ones.
Now for more sour news, I suggest you take some antioxidants before watching, you might actually feel sick from this one. A Dragonball movie trailer as been leaked, and boy is it awful. Â I mean, I’m not surprised, but this deserves /facepalm times 100.
You can’t say I didn’t warned ya! *goes back to throw up in the toilet*
Now more seriously, making a Dragon Ball movie is an AUTO-fail deal. I mean, either they would have made it with a lot of CG to look like the real characters with funky hair, and look ridiculous for outsiders, or either they do what they just did. Â Which, isn’t much Dragon Ball anymore.
Great job guys! You just ruined the series that inspired so many other series afterward, in the WORST way possible.
update: Freshly-in, more news reported from Kotaku’s coverage of today’s Nintendo’s conference. Â A new Punch-out game for the Wii. It’s been almost 15 years since a Punch-Out game was released. I think this calls for celebrations!
