The Nintendo DSi has only been out in Japan since last November and already the line is expanding to include a new range of very bright colors: pink, green, and blue. Not, it must be said, the blue that’s coming to the United States this spring, either.
And in fact, these new models will be available in Japan even before the DSi debuts in the rest of the world’s major gaming markets. Japanese gamers will be able to pick up colorful DSis on March 20, while we in the United States, as well as folks in Europe and Australia, have to wait until early April for a DSi at a non-import cost.
Of course, that early release may tempt some to import a pretty DSi rather than waiting a few more weeks to pick up a local model. Is the extra money worth a little lime green?
