Now $179 Canadian

Several retailers in Canada, including Toys R Us, are listing the Nintendo DSi at a lower price point.

Originally $199 Canadian (equivalent to $183 US or €125), the new price is down to $179 Canadian (or $165 US and €113). By comparison, the DS Lite is $139 CAD. No word on whether this price drop will be rolled out to the rest of the world any time soon.

Nintendo's offer of 1000 free DSi points upon connecting the portable to the Internet is still going strong until October 5, so the price drop has had no effect on that promotion.

If you bought one yesterday in Canada, well, that's probably very annoying for you.
