Last November, the latest hardware revision of the DS handheld, the DSi, went on sale in Japan. Less than year later comes word that its replacement is already on the verge of production. The Nikkei news service (subscription required) is citing unnamed sources as confirming a larger-screen version of the handheld will be unveiled shortly, and could go on sale in Japan as early as this year.

The DSi will soon have a big brother.

According to Nikkei, the new DSi has larger screens than the current version, which sports two 3.25-inch screens. The new version will feature screens in excess of four inches, about the same size as the PSP-3000's 4.3-inch screens and larger than the PSP Go's 3.8-inch display. Commensurate with the increased production cost, the handheld's price will be higher, ringing up at ¥18,900 ($205).

As of press time, US Nintendo reps had not responded to requests for comment on the new DSi or its release in the West. However, its introduction will raise some issues with the US's 2.2 million DSi owners who have bought games from the DSi store. According to reports, DSiWare games are not transferable to another handheld, meaning they would have to be repurchased on any new DSi.

Well if this does come out then I will have to say goodbye to my dsi I have now, because Whenever Nintendo releases a new portable my old one seems to get a hinge crack. Hoping it is not true since the ds2 or whatever Nintendo decides to call their new handheld, is supposedly in the works

It is true....Don't get it. Would make more sense to wait for the DS2...

You really should check before making a duplicated thread...

Though, I think making a second console like this is ridiculous. Maybe there's anti-hacking hardware built in to this one?

Maybe if they include the super Nvidia chip in it, and stuff, I'll trade in my DSi for this bigger screened baby. =)
Wonder how well this might work out.

I would rather wait for $99 price drop of Regular Lite models, so I can get one extra.
DSi screen is big enough, unless they want to make it as a descent movie player like PSP.
