268w ago - Update: [Register or Login to view links] has now confirmed that a Euro DSiLL will arrive in Q1 2010 at higher price of DSi, to quote:

"Nintendo today confirms that a new Nintendo DSi XL console is launching in Europe in the first quarter of 2010. The retail price of the Nintendo DSi XL is expected to be higher than that of the Nintendo DSi. Further details will be released soon."

According to a report from Nikkei news service (via [Register or Login to view links] translation by neo2046 of a [Register or Login to view links] post), Nintendo will release a new DSi LL in Japan this year (2009) with a screen that is approximately 4 inches.

For those curious, the screen on the current DSi is 3.25 inches.

Overall it's not a major difference in appearance, but some gamers may simply find the larger screen easier to interact with.

Besides this slight cosmetic change, everything else about the DSi will remain the same. It will have no additional processing power or a higher quality camera.

Best of all the price will remain at the standard price of 18900 yen (around $200). No one is sure if the new DSi will make its way to other countries outside Japan.

Why would you want it to be bigger ? Isn't portability THE major feature of a HAND HELD video game console ? Damn... Say what you will but the iPod touch still gets a cookie in my book. Such a smexy beast... Ever since I got it, the PSP seems too... bulky now.
