Keiser Sosa! Good Night….
Guess what I got….
So everyone who knows me, knows that I hate people staring in my face or invading my personal space on mass transit….. The other day I was walking by Game Stop and saw the poster for the new DS by Nintendo. I could not pass it up! It gives me something to focus on while I’m on the train. The only thing missing from the DSi is a phone component. Check out the features….
There are actually two cameras on the device, one that faces outward and one that faces inward, like a MacBook’s camera. Nintendo says that the images the cameras snap are 300,000 pixels large, which works out to 640X480 resolution.
DSi can also play back audio, and you can alter the pitch and playback speed of the sound files you’re playing.
An SD card slot sits on the right side of the machine, storing all the camera photos, music files, and games that you’ve added on to the system.
The DSi brings Nintendo’s product offering closer to what rival Sony has with its PSP portable system, which has an optional camera attachment, robust media playback functionality, and can download games to Memory Stick media.
What it lacks is a Game Boy Advance game slot. So if you still want to play your old Pokemon games, you’ll want to stick with the current DS Lite.
DSi will cost more than the DS Lite approx. $185
