Jumbo 4-Inch Nintendo DSi Coming This Year

A new DSi? Oh, of course—it's only been a year since the original launched, and we're talking about Nintendo. Nikkei says a fresh DSi is coming with a 4-inch screen, for the same price as the current one.

So far, the slightly embiggened (plus 0.75 inches) DSi is only destined for Japan later this year, says Nikkei, and it's sorta kinda targeted at geezers who want a slightly bigger screen. Since it's gonna be the same price, we're guessing all of the other specs—like display resolution, even—will be the same. While unconfirmed, since we're talking about Nintendo here, it doesn't slay us with surprise. [Nikkei, Livedoor via Kotaku]
