Nintendo not doing DSi launch event

Hardware is evolution, not replacement.

Nintendo has told Eurogamer there will be no official DSi launch event because the handheld is an evolution of the hardware - and not a replacement.

Nevertheless, a spokesperson told us 200 GameStation stores are opening at midnight this Thursday along with 55 GAME outlets and select HMV stores.

The DSi comes equipped with bigger and brighter screens, two cameras, more onboard Flash memory, an SD memory card slot, better Wi-Fi support and minor aesthetic nips and tucks. The DSi costs GBP 149.
