    Yep for all the skeptics, the new revision of the DSi that would feature larger screens has been formally announced and unveiled. But it is not a 4 inch screen, but a 4.2 inch screen instead, making the thing even larger, almost an entire inch larger than the normal DSi and a lot bigger than the normal DS. It's a lot bigger and weighs more than normal DSi/Lite's. It does have quite a bit better battery life though. No clue if it will come to the US. Now take a gander at the pics. The Nintendo DSi LL-

    Apparently so, and I just noticed. This can get locked when a mod sees it.

    Might have to start saving up for this, no doubt it'll have added piracy protection but i wanna play some of these DSiWare games, good ones are getting released now >:@

    Wow. First DS Phat, that was quite bulky.
    Then DSL, that was made smaller and more portable.
    Then DSi, a tiny bit larger than DSL and a bit thicker.
    Now this. This is not portable. It's a low res, large, home entertainment system. Bet the speakers are so far apart the sound is ACTUALLY be surround XD

    Don't see why anyone would want one though considering DS2 was announced so that can't be too far off.
    This is surely built for the older, poorly sighted, brain training generation.

    Fitting this in your pocket would be like putting a novel in there, on that basis I deem thee not portable [​IMG]

    It's 50% heavier than the DSi, so the "Lighter" is already ruled out.

    I was disappointed when I first heard of the news for this but now I'm wondering what the sales of this will be like. I can't imagine many people buying it because my DSi is fat enough as it is.

    Nope, considering it's approximately 50% larger, that's more than a Lil'
