DSi LL selling well in Japan The Nintendo DSi LL launched in Japan last weekend, and was met with large lines of potential buyers.
Today, according to the latest Enterbrain sales figures, the LL has sold 103,524 units in Japan in its first two days of sale, a huge number for a device which many shrugged off as a minor update.

The DSi sold 170,000 in its first two days on sale in comparison, and the PSPgo sold under 40,000.

The newly updated handheld has dual-screens that are 93 percent larger than its predecessors and include a larger stylus as well as downloaded games, right out of the box.

Nintendo says the larger screens will be helpful for users who want to use the Internet browser or who need larger fonts for gaming and Internet.

I wonder how many people in those lines were actually older people or even legally blind. It doesn't make any sense to me unless your visually impared, otherwise it's just FUD. - BLUEBOY

Suddenly it doesn't matter when a handheld ups the screen size? Pardon me I seem to remember that being a selling point for each and every handheld recently.
