“We’ll let the market decide. We expect some people will upgrade, but we also anticipate that we’ll win over people who were still undecided on DS – the extra features will help convince them. There’s an extra incentive. With the DSi we see multiple consumer types for it. As with everything now, we look at our target market being five to 85, offering different things for different people. The functions of the device really open the platform up to more consumers – it gives the DS format unlimited potential.” – Nintendo’s UK general manager David Yarnton

Personally, if I had a choice between the DSi and the DS Lite, I would choose the Lite even though the DSi lacks a GBA slot. Consumers in Japan have still been purchasing the DS Lite though, so it’s possible that the system will still have legs with the DSi launches in other territories.

New Line Up Released!
Northamptonshire, UK 5th March 2009

Fancy being a top darts player? Or would you prefer to match yourself up against the Pros? In this year’s PDC World Championship Darts 2009 game on Wii, you can do both! Either create your own male or female characters with your very own, barrel weights, flights, darts shirts and walk-ins or choose to move up the rankings by playing as (or against) one of 18 professional PDC players.

Will you play as ex-postman and five times World Championship winner, Raymond ‘The Man’ Van Barneveld or compete using the unique dart throwing style of Phil “The Power” Taylor, the sporting legend who has notched up an incredible 14 World Championship wins?


The special DSi will go on sale on May 30 in Japan. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days will also launch on the same day.
