Did Nintendo Pull the Plug on the DSi?

Paul Lilly

If recent reports about Nintendo's DSi handheld are true, then it's safe to say the console company is betting big on its upcoming 3DS. Citing a Japanese retail source, Kotaku says Nintendo has stopped production on its popular DSi device, and that the only available ones are those currently in inventory. There are some areas where it's reportedly sold out.

Oddly enough, it appears Nintendo didn't make the same decision with its larger screen DSiXL console (it's called the SDSiLL in Japan).

Perhaps Nintendo doesn't want to confuse consumers with similarly sized consoles. The 3DS will launch in Japan at the end of next month, followed by a worldwide release in March.
