Trade braced for DSi Easter domination

Publishers and retailers praise 'masterful' Nintendo launch; Handheld update 'certain to sell out', says industry

The hardware launch of the year is just a week away, and the UK games industry expects Nintendo's DSi to give retail a huge boost.

The handheld arrives in the UK on Friday, April 3rd, just as consumer spending ramps up ahead of the Easter weekend.

The story is too old to be commented.

Glad i pre-ordered mine now.

Me too, although I haven't seen many ads for it in the UK.

I think Nintendo knows, that the gamers will pick it up at launch and will then advertise the first wave of people have brought it.

I preordered mine too, I have a DS Lite but after looking up everything I've seen from the DSi and all the new games coming out, I'm sold on it. For once I won't feel that bad for trading in my DS Lite to buy a DSi for about half the price.
