Update: Nintendo DSi XL

Listed below are my post details that I provided when the Nintendo
XL release was first announced
.

I assigned TechBoy (my tween son) the job of taking the Nintendo DSi
XL on a test run. He has a way with words(short and to the point) so I
asked him for a sentence that I could use on my blog.

TechBoy’s Take:Have you ever herd about the DSi XL? Its
the latest Nintendo system since the DSi. What I like about the DSi XL
is it has a larger screen, when you go back to using the regular
DSI it fells like playing on a cell phone.

He enjoys playing on the larger screen, using the photo/sound
manipulation tools and the camera. Overall – there is not going back for
TechBoy – he now only uses the Nintendo DSi XL. But that is good news
for his 7yr old brother – who was the lucky one to get his Nintendo DSi.
And TechBoy’s brother is very happy to finally have the DSi – so all is
good in the TechFamily house!

Soon To Be Released Nintendo Dsi XL and Just Announced 3DS

Two exciting new announcements for mobile gamers are Nintendo’s soon to be released Nintendo Dsi XL and the just announced Nintendo 3DS. I have not tried either of them, but the new features are sure to get little and big gamers very excited, especially for those that want bigger screens and input devices or  a 3D mobile gaming experience.

In honor of the celebration, Nintendo has a “What would you
like 93% bigger?” application on Facebook® Platform at http://apps.facebook.com/ninetythree-percent and their Twitter profile: @NintendoAmericaI have a feeling gals may answer that question differently then guys…

Nintendo 3DS:

On Engadget today I saw an announcement that they caught in press release from Japan: Nintendo has just slipped out a press release in Japan informing the
world that all-new 3D-capable portable hardware is coming, with a full
unveiling set for E3 2010 this June. Tentatively titled the 3DS, this glasses-free
3D wonder is pitched as the successor to both the DS and DSi, and will use a
“compatible cart” that should ensure backwards compatibility with your
vast library of favorites from the older consoles. Nintendo expects to
launch the 3DS into retail “during the fiscal year ending March 2011
.”CLICK OVER to Engadget to see pictures and more details.

3D gaming without the glasses sounds like a good fit for on the go gaming.
