¥18,900, or roughly $180. That's how much the Nintendo DSi
will cost when it launches on November 1st in Japan. For North American importers, that's a $50 hike for a system with a few extra functions, but also with its GBA compatibility removed
. At the same time, it's not a dramatic leap for Japanese consumers -- ¥18,900 is just ¥2,100 ($14) more than what a Lite costs there.
In your view, is the DSi fairly priced? And what's the highest price you
would be prepared to pay when it arrives in your region next year?
