Nintendo Announce New DS: The Nintendo DSi

From Kotaku.com:

"During their Fall Press Conference today, Nintendo have - as expected - announced a new version of the Nintendo DS. Called the Nintendo DSi, it eschews the GBA slot (boo!) in favour of a slight downsizing (it's a little thinner) and a range of improvements. The handheld's screens have been enlarged, and will now be 17% bigger (at 3.25 inches) than those found on the DS Lite. As for the rumoured additions, both have proven to be correct, with "audio enhancements" made to the handheld, while it will also now include a .3 megapixel (640x480) camera. And
that's just the start of it.

The DSi also features an SD memory card slot, making it possible to take pictures with the DSi and then view them on the Nintendo Wii. The DSi features a built-in browser, and it's possible to download games and keep them on the DSi.

The DSi will be released in Japan on November 1. It will retail for ¥18,900 (USD$180), and will be available in two colours, white and black. It will be released in other markets sometime "next year."

Impressive no? Well have to wait till 2009 for a stateside release. But already the internets is buzzing with news.

Also at the Nintendo Press Conference event that was held last night at 11:30 pm in Japan were other announcements about other games.
In particular:

A new Punch Out game for the Nintendo Wii.

Finally, here are two videos from Nintendo's Japanese website that go over the list of games that were shown...
