Here Are Those 3 New DSi Colours You Wanted

Posted by Damien McFerran

Nintendo gives European gamers a splash of colour with new DSi models

From October 23rd lucky European DSi fans will be able to get their grubby hands on not one but THREE new shades of their favourite console.

Perfectly complimenting the current black and white editions, the new DSi colours are Metallic Blue, Light Blue and Red.

What's more, the new units will come pre-packed with the unique Facebook application and the superb Flipnote Studio. If you need reminding why Flipnote is the best thing since sliced bread then check out Corbie's review.

As if this wasn't enough, you'll also score 1000 free DSi points when you connect to the DSi shop using the wireless connection.

Damm it all, I would have bought the Metallic Blue one if I didn't have a Black one. Oh well

Can't say I like the others though. Not nearly as good

That's good that Nintendo is installing Flipnote Studio and the latest firmware that fb photo uploaded by default.

Australia just got a purplish/pink and another colour that escapes me right now.

The only thing I hate about new colours, is that if one comes out that you want, you can't carry over your downloads. And if there IS a way, it'd probably be incredibly hard and frustrating

The red one is very nice. I got the cyan one myself and I'm happy with it cause its more of a unique color. Although red is my favorite color....Hmm... Oh well. I don't live in Europe, no biggie.

That metallic blue color would match my armor and cassette deck so well! But I'm not European. And I have a black DSi. :)

Ummm... Until my freaking 300$ total DSi dies, I AM NOT buying a new DSi. As much as I like the red and dark blue, I'll keep my 100$ in downloads thanks.

you spelled "color" wrong ;)
Anyway, I think those colors are hideous. If I had any money, I'd have a black DSi

Enjoy the awful light blue color. Wish we had white at launch instead of that nasty thing. Ah well, black is nice too.

Wish you could transfer downloads and get a pink one. I like my black one though. I really want to know how they figure out what colors will do better in different regions and when to release new colors. All the randomness, it just doesn't make sense. Why can't we who love our DS's and bought one early have some choice too?

FINALLY RED! I am At 90% won over factor.
Now if only this small issue of DSI exclusives being region locked hadn't arisen.

Sometime I hope my silver DS L "dies" so I "have to" buy a new DSi - in this case the dark blue one ^^

Makes you wonder if Nintendo of America will have the red and metallic blue colors coming out in this region.

Those in the US that want these colors, send out a message to Cammie Dunaway about it. She's the VP of sales and marketing at their company.

I've noticed some people out there in the WWW saying that Nintendo should release a PokeDex app for DSiWare. Then if you had the red DSi... :D

Yeah I like the new colours but until Nintendo announces a VC service for DSi I won't be getting one. Oh Well.....
