Some early pics of Nintendo DSi

Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Courtesy of Games Press, here are some early pics of Nintendo’s upcoming camera-equipped handheld system. The Nintendo DSi was announced late last night our time at the company’s annual press conference in Japan. It will be in stores there next month with a pricetag of $180, and migrate to the U.S. sometime in 2009.

The DSi clearly resembles a DS Lite, only smaller and with larger screens:
