All that extra bulk, according to Nintendo at least – means “a wider viewing angle, the ability to immediately play with pre-installed software, longer battery life, improved sound, and a new, larger, more comfortable stylus”.
The handheld will come in both “burgundy” and “bronze”, plus a heap of pre-installed software. There’s no pricing info just yet, but according to Kotaku, it will cost “more than the DSi”. They’re guessing $349, which is only $50 off a Wii.
Anyone marking launch day in their calendars for one of these?
