A look at the DSi XL

We’ve already got some info on the DSi XL, but you never really know how big something is until you get it in your hands. Well that’s not going to happen here in the west until sometime in Q1 2010, but if you would like to see it in somebody else’s hands (or rather, on a table), then check out the video above.

Take my word for it when I say that when it comes to a second language, if you don’t use it, you lose it, so I have no idea what the text on screen says. However Nintendo makes it pretty easy to see how drastic the difference in size is, and it’s clear that their intention with this device is to create a DS¬†experience¬†that’s easier to share with multiple people. I myself am perfectly contempt with the size of my DSi, and I worry about the practical portability of the so called portable device, so I’m going to pass on this one.

If you can’t wait, I suppose you could import one when the DSi LL (that’s what it’s called in Japan) launches on November 21st for 20,000 yen, also known as $222.64.
