New 'DSi' unveiled; users can download software direct to the device

Nintendo has officially revealed its new DS SKU, the DSi.

The new console, which MCV yesterday exclusively confirmed would be revealed, is similar in design to the DS Lite, but features two cameras, larger screens, improved speakers, and an SD memory card slot.

The machine is also 12 per cent thinner than the DS Lite, and features an SD memory card slot so gamers can take images with the handheld and view them on Nintendo’s Wii.

Reports from Nintendo’s press conference, which took place in the early hours, also points to internal memory for applications, a built in web browser, and the ability to download DSi software using Nintendo Points, which are set to replace Wii Points.
