In March 2009 Nintendo announced an impressive benchmark, that they'd shipped their 100 millionth DS. Since then, they've shipped approximately 25 million more and this has seen the DS become the best selling handheld gaming system to date and quite soon, it might surpass the PlayStation 2, making it the best selling gaming system ever. With sales so high, it's only natural that Nintendo would eventually come up with a new addition to the DS family, so it was no surprise when the DSi XL was announced October 2009. The new unit boasts a 4.2'' screen, which is 93% bigger than that of a DS Lite, but there is more scepticism than anticipation regarding how successful the new unit will be. Will the new larger DSi XL be the granddaddy DS, or will it simply be played by granddaddies, grand children, or the otherwise visually impaired?
