    I just pre-ordered a black Nintendo DSi from gamestop. My local one just started taking 25 bucks for pre-orders. I chose the black color. I read on Kotakuthat only asia has the white, but will eventually drop the white in Europe when it gets realesed. Anyways I was thinking is the blue only limited to the US? Cause if so bout to go pre-order that one too.

    Edit-

    Seems like not too many people know about the DSi, so I decided to post some general information.

    Now accepting pre-orders
    Gamestop-Confirmed

    Release date, Colors and Price
    US- April 5, 2009 Black & Blue (Possibly limited to US, awaiting confirmation)
    $169.99
    [​IMG]
    Europe- April 3, 2009 Black and White (Limited to Asia & Europe)
    £149 (€169, $213)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Asia Black & White Out Now
    ¥18,900 ($179 USD)
    You can import from places like Yes-asia.com, play-asia.com, and other misc sites, but expect to pay over retail.

    New Features
    Screens 17% larger at 3.25 inches
    12% Thinner
    3mp camera on the exterior
    2mp camera on the interior
    Sd slot replaces gba slot
    Can access DSi Store for downloads (I,E, old gba games, nintendo games, and etc)

    Won't get too much into this but a negative I see is the American version will probably not be r4 friendly [​IMG][​IMG]
