Nintendo has confirmed to Eurogamer that the new DSi handheld will only have one touch screen - just like the DS Lite.

Our old friend Internet Reports has been up to his old tricks, spreading rumours that a second touch screen was mentioned in this morning's press conference.

LIES, says Nintendo, in a nice way. "As per the current DS model, DSi features one touch screen," a representative told us.

Still - both the screens will be bigger, as previously reported.

DSi will launch in Japan on November 1st, with a European launch to follow in the spring.

Take a peek at our gallery to see how it'll look.
