I think it's about time I got a DSi

Or, more accurately, I think it's about time I asked someone to buy me a DSi. After all, my birthday isn't too far off and my parents are always looking for gift ideas.

They'll want to wait until Sept. 12 to buy one, though, as that's when Nintendo of America will drop the price on all DSi systems to $149.99. (The company will drop the price on DSi XLs to $169.99 on the same date, although the price of DS lites will stay at $129.99.)

Unfortunately, it seems Nintendo won't be celebrating the occasion by (finally) releasing the slick, red DSi (above) that hit store shelves in Japan last year and in Europe earlier this year.

Oh, don't worry -- I plan on getting a 3DS at some point, too, though I'll probably wait until the first, inevitable redesign (just like I passed on buying a DS until the DS lite was released).

I'll most likely have a 3DS when they come out. Robb's WAY EXCITED about the Kid Icarus rebirth.

Oh, that's good that he's excited about a game for a change! The only way David (the hubs) will get excited about the 3DS is if Nintendo announces a new Brain Age :P
