DSi XL Gets Price Cut In Japan

Nintendo have recently announced a price reduction for the XL edition of their portable games machine, the DS. The price cuts will take effect from June 19th and will see the DSI XL reduced to 20,000 yen (£150) to 18,000 yen (£132) and the DSi will drop from 18,900 yen (£140) to 15,000 yen (£110). They are also releasing the device in 3 new colours (yellow, blue and green).

Most people believe the price reduction is an effort to drive DSi sales leading up to the release of the 3DS but a price cut is always good for customers who may not have taken the plunge for the portable until it became cheaper.
