Nintendo Adds Midnight Blue To DSi XL Palette

In a somewhat puzzling move, Nintendo has announced that it will bring a new color of the DSi XL to the US, in spite of the fact that the system has been the slowest-selling Nintendo handheld in years.
The DSi XL takes the reverse approach to most electronic redesigns in that it is actually bulkier than the previous DSi system - it's about 40% bigger.

The market in Japan showed desire for such a system, but in the US there was significantly less interest, so the US release kind of felt like an afterthought.

So it is interesting that Nintendo is expending resources to bring a new model of the XL to the US. Although sales figures do not break down DS sales between the Lite, DSi, and XL models, it is widely assumed that XL sales are very low, on the same kind of level as Sony's PSPgo compared to the PSP-3000 system.

The new Midnight Blue DSi XL will be available as of July 11, for the same $190 price point as the existing Bronze and Burgundy models.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
