DSi Advertised in Australia

Picked up the catalogue for my local gamestore and was mildly surprised to see a 4-page spread on the Nintento DSi and all of it’s features. I personally am not looking forward to it, most especially due to the removal of the GBA port. This creates no end of problems as you say bye-bye to your Internet browser set, your copy of Guitar Hero: On Tour and any and all GBA games you own. This and a further reduction in screen size and a power button move will probably hurt sales but not enough to put a dent in what will be generated by the new features which include built-in Wi-Fi, two cameras (because you really, really need to take two pictures at one time) and a rather sparkly new online shop, similar to the Wii Shopping Channel. This apparently can your account from the Wii if you like, but I’m not too sure on that. Also in the realm of hardware there is the addition of the rather un-needed SD card slot, while at the same time R4’s are doing the same thing for far cheaper. I might report more as the DSi becomes more well-known here in Australia.
