Nintendo Sets Dsi Release Date For Europe
European gamers will get their hands on the new Nintendo DSi console two days before the US gamers will, Nintendo of Europe announced.
February 19, 2009
Unlike the US release, the European DSi will ship in the same colors available in Japan: black and white. The white DSi will not be available in the US, as it was substituted with a blue version.
No actual price has been announced by Nintendo of Europe. Rumor has it that the upcoming console will retail for around 170 Euro ($216), quite a bit more than what Nintendo will ask for in the US. The DSi shipping to North America features a price tag reading $169.99.
The software shipping alongside the new console remains a mystery up to this point. The US release will have Rhythm Heaven as the star software feature, but no such news is on its way to Europe.
