DSi sold out – 170,779 units moved in two days

dsi

Are you looking to get a the new DSi? Looks like a lot of Japanese have answered with their wallets, as Gamasutra are reporting that Nintendo’s data shows 170,779 units – lesser known as their effective stock – have been sold in the first two days of sale.

The good news for anyone outside of Japan who can’t wait to get their hot little hands on one, is that importer play-asia still have some systems in stock – probably because they’re asking about $100AUD (or around 30%) import tax over the recommended price.

I am actually moderately interested in picking up a DSi, but my interest hinges almost entirely on the success of the online store – if Nintendo can offer me all first party titles from the online store, than I’ll be happy to feed them more money. Besides, I did skip on the lite and gave away my phat many moons ago, so I do have an excuse to pick a new one up.

Playing on Playstation 3

Red Dead Revolver - I paid about $1000 for my launch model PS3, so I guess it's time I get some use out of that emotion chip crammed inside. I remember Red Dead Revolver looking rather good when it was released, and despite the low resolution and odd blurring (that I attribute to playing on a HD set) the game holds up well. It looks good despite these graphical limitations because the art direction is so precise and awesome. And it isn't just the art direction, the music, dialogue and set design (for some reason, set seems a more fitting word than level) all work in tandem to recreate an iconic Wild West atmosphere. Red Dead Revolver doesn’t aim to recreate life in the Wild West, it allows our imagination to take over and populates the locale with legendary men and their legendary stories.

Playing on iPhone

edge - Well I never thought I'd consider playing a game on iPhone as actually gaming, but edge has turned me around. The game is built for the iPhone. Sure, it could be ported, but the elegance of what has been created is astounding, it boggles the mind and makes me wonder what amazing gems we'd receive if current gen consoles weren't clones of eachother.

Playing on PC

Sins of a Solar Empire, Demigod, Generals - Zero Hour - It may be a temporary effect as I slowly reintroduce the PC into my gaming diet, but it seems every title I’m excited to play on the platform is either a strategy game, or a cheap indie game. PC gaming isn’t dead, it’s just restricted to titles that require complex input or a pointing device, and games that couldn't be developed or distributed on other platforms. I guess that’s part of the reason the AppStore is so far a success, there were a lot of indie devs stuck on PC for lack of a better alternative.
