Nintendo DSi to hit US in early April?

Nintendo DSi April Rumor

Nintendo's DSi handheld could surface in the US as soon as the start of April, a leak from IGN claims. Multiple purported sources from within Nintendo say partners are being advised of an early April ship date, most likely April 4th, and that the system will cost significantly more than the stock DS Lite with a $180 price tag versus $130 for the earlier console. The dual-camera system, SD card slot and extra software all contribute to the cost.

The company has declined comment on this latest report but has previously said there was reduced market pressure for the DSi in the US, where the older model has continued to sell well. Price has also been suggested as a possible factor with the DSi's difference less likely to be tolerated early on.

In Japan, where the DSi is already available, DS Lite sales have been softening and helping the rival Sony PSP as a result.
