Third- and fourth-generation versions of Nintendo's
best-selling handheld pick up new $150, $170 price tags next month; DS
US sales hit 42.5 million.

Far from the unstoppable juggernaut that it once was, the Nintendo DS
and its various iterations have started loosening their grip on the
retail sales charts. Last month, the NPD Group reported that the
perennial hardware chart topper had been ousted by the Xbox 360,
a feat due in part to the redesign for Microsoft's console but also
non-stratospheric sales of the DS, which stood at just 398,400 units.



The DSi family will soon be $20 cheaper.

Nintendo will launch its latest assault on the handheld market before April 2011, when it debuts the no-glasses-required 3DS. But until then, the publisher announced today that it would be bolstering its 132 million-unit-selling line of hardware
with a $20 price cut for the DSi and DSi XL. Nintendo also noted that
DS sales have hit 42.5 million units since the first version of the
system launched in November 2004.
Beginning September 12, the DSi will carry a $150 price tag, down from
its current MSRP of $170. Launched in April 2009, the DSi is an updated
version of the DS Lite, featuring 17 percent larger screens than its
predecessor. Though it doesn't have a Game Boy Advance slot, it boasts
two cameras--an outward-facing 0.3 megapixel one and a lower-resolution
one for self-portraits--and an SD card slot for multimedia storage.
Also on September 12, Nintendo will cut the price of the DSi XL to $170,
which first went on sale in North America in March 2010. Currently
available for $190, the DSi XL is, as its name suggests, an extra-large
version of the DSi, sporting 4.2-inch dual screens, up from the DSi's
3.25-inch screens. The supersized handheld also comes preinstalled with
several games and applications and features a battery life on par with
the DS Lite.
As for the DS Lite, Nintendo noted that the popular handheld will
continue to sell for $130--the same price it has commanded since
launching in the States in June 2006.

So what do you guys think about this? is the DSi in your range now? or is the cost still to steep? tell me about it and more.

I lost interest in handheld games. I dont get to travel often and when I do I am the one always driving or in the front seat in charge of music (via CD or iPod) and/or keeping the driver awake if need be.
