This sort of thing must bug the living crap out of Sony. Their PSP wasn’t able to keep up with the technically sub-par DS series so they went back to the drawing board and came up with the technically impressive PSP Go in retaliation.
The PSP Go has since failed miserably and it’s been Nintendo’s turn to crank out a new handheld. Instead of improving on what they have or being innovative they decided to simply super size the DSi and release it in a bigger, bulkier form.
While people scoffed Nintendo just sat their smugly with that annoying wait and see attitude and guess what? They were right again.
Amazon is now limiting the number of pre-orders that you can place for a Nintendo DSi XL to one per household due to overwhelming demandâ€¦ apparently the world really did need a bigger, uglier, bulkier Nintendo DS.
