Nintendo Adds Classic Literature to the Nintendo DSi XL’s Future Lineup

Fri, Feb 26, 2010

Casual, Console

During this week’s Nintendo Media Summit, Cammie Dunaway, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Nintendo of America, introduced “100 Classic Books,” a $19.99 piece of Nintendo DSi XL software that will turn the company’s upcoming handheld into an eBook reader.

The Nintendo DSi XL sports screens larger than any of the previously released DS models, which will make the books much easier to read, but Dunaway assures that this isn’t a release that should be taken as a move to compete with the likes of Apple’s (also upcoming) iPad or the Amazon Kindle.

“It’s not really about trying to take on the e-book market,” said Dunaway in an interview (as reported by Bloomberg.com). “It’s just one more way to enjoy your device.”

The Nintendo DSi XL will play host to countless more casual, interactive experiences, including cooking helpers and an untold variety of games. It’s set to release on March 28 at a price of $189.99.

    Oh that's nice. I'm sure gamers/bookworms out there will be delighted. But it's kinda pricey for me, gotta warm up my credit cards first before getting this one! :)
