Nintendo DSi Preorders Now Available!

February 18th, 2009

Just released at a variety of stores, the Nintendo DSi which has sold record numbers in Japan, is now available for Preoder at Amazon. The unit is coming out in two different colors, Matte Black and Matte Blue with a price tag of $169.99. The unit is projected to be released on April 5th, 2009.

This release date is much closer than the earlier anticipated release of Summer or Fall of 2009 here in the US. I wander if Nintendo pushed up the release date to take advantage of the strong dollar? Makes sense to me that you would choose to do this when you can clearly make more per unit now.

If you want to see all the available preorder options for the DSi, please head over to the DSi tracker.
