No DSi phase out in the UK

Nintendo plans to manufacture older model through 2011

In light of reports that Nintendo of Japan is in the process of phasing out the DSi in order to pursue a DSi XL / 3DS-only offering, the firm's UK arm has told us that it has no plans to cease DSi production this year.


"We plan to still manufacture and supply DSi consoles in a range of colours in the UK in 2011," the firm said in a statement. "On an on-going basis, continuing supply is based on retail and consumer demand."

Good news for those that don't fancy forking out for the upcoming 3DS or the big-screen DSi XL, we guess.

Nintendo revealed the full Japanese 3DS launch line-up this weekend ahead of the system's launch next month. Super Street Fighter IV will join six other titles available on day one.
