I'm seeing red (or, at least, that's the color I'd like to be seeing)

Why? Well, it seems every gamer in the world can buy a red DSi system if he or she so chooses--unless said gamer lives in North America, that is.

Japanese gamers got the shiny, cherry-colored DSi last July (the same day they got Dragon Quest IX), for instance, while their European counterparts got the system in late October.

Even South Koreans--who have yet to experience the camera-enhanced, dual-screened system--will be getting it before me and my fellow North Americans. (It'll be released in that territory alongside MapleStory DS on April 15.)

Will Nintendo of America ever bring this candy-apple-esque system to the States? I sure hope so--though I wouldn't mind if they waited until I can actually afford it.

I'm just going to heave a heavy sigh at this and leave it at that.

Do you have a DSi, Justin -- or do you want one?

I, of course, want one, but I really can't justify the expense at this point.

Oh, well, there are worse things in life than to be without a portable game system, right? :)

I don't have a DSi. I'm just sick to death of Japan AND APPARENTLY EVERYONE ELSE having so many more choices on styles and colors for their gaming systems...
