Available November 21st this year (for 20,000 yen, the same price as the Wii in Japan) Nintendo just announced another revision of the DS hardware, with this one bragging a much larger screen. It will also feature a slightly more efficient battery and a selection of colours.
Clearly aimed at the silvering generation the only benefit is the larger screen, which will surely give games a ‘blurry’ appearance. But, like I said, it is not geared towards the audience you or I (presumably) would fit into.
Update: Kotaku (via Nintendo) is claiming the hardware isn’t necessarily geared towards older folks, saying; ‘The redesign comes at the request of customers who said they wanted a larger screen, and the screen is a 93 percent increase over the DS Lite’s screen size. The DSi LL is geared for those who want to use their Nintendo handheld for internet and as a music player as the larger screen is able to displayer letters and characters in a bigger font.’ Just who these customers are, we’ll never know.
