Nintendo of America has announced that the DSi XL will launch on March 28, 2010 at a suggested retail price of $189.99. Here’s what the company had to say about this giant DS.
The screens of the Nintendo DSi XL are 93 percent larger than those of the Nintendo DS Lite model, providing a more vivid and engaging play experience. The screens of the Nintendo DSi XL also feature a wider viewing angle, letting friends and family members join the fun. The new system launches in both Burgundy and Bronze colors, and comes loaded with pre-installed premium software Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math and Photo Clock, as well as two free applications: the Nintendo DSi Browser and Flipnote Studio. Nintendo DSi XL will also come with a larger pen-like stylus that allows for a more comfortable grip and enhanced ease of use when playing games that use the Nintendo DS touch screen.
In all its incarnations, the Nintendo DS has been unstoppable. I’m sure the DSi XL will do well too. I find it funny that Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata brushed of the iPad as nothing more than a big iPod, yet his company has made a killing in Japan selling something that’s nothing more than a big DSi.
Are any of you going to buy a DSi XL?

no, i don't play my ds enough as is. The small screen only bothers me when i don't wear my glasses.
Not unless the make one with a color that doesn't hurt my eyes. How 'bout a Soul Silver Edition?
Lol I thought of the Ipad comment as well.
Played an XL a few months back. It was pretty nice. Don't think I'll get one, though; never got a DSi, despite Kate knocking my Lite onto the tile floor and having the external speaker go fuzzy.
Amazingly, my 5-year-old nephew wants a DSi. I think it's due to older friend influence. But kids and portable gaming is a dangerous mix. I've seen too many at restaurants oblivious to the world, immersed in their games. Hard enough to get kids to pay attention to things that can kill them without a game at the ready at all times.
@Justin Hmmmm, we should get together soon and I can tell you some off-the-record reasons to…. Oops, I said too much already.
Hehe I'd like a fat DSi, but I'm still partial to my Lite, it's still going strong after all these years ^^
