Nintendo Claims That DSi LL/XL Is Not Only For Old People

When the DSi XL launched in Japan late last year as the DSi LL, Nintendo rolled out an ad campaign featuring an elderly lady playing the DSi XL with her family. Japan, where the portable was designed, has a rapidly growing senior citizen population. “It’s absolutely not just for old people. DSi XL appeals to as many people, if not more, than its predecessors,” Nintendo senior product manager for DS James Honeywell told website CVG. “With bigger screens and a larger pen-like stylus it’s likely that older users may find the DSi XL easier and more comfortable to use but there are many more people it can and will appeal to,” Honeywell added. He also pointed out that it is easier to find the larger stylus between sofa cushions.

Oh STFU Nintendo! The more you deny it the more you’re just confirming it! Damn!

      I am getting … “Don’t tell those suckers who got it thinking it’s a cool new device when it’s actually targeted for older people who suffers from deteriorating eyesight”.

      Hey! That’s me! Man …. I am getting old. Bummer!

    OMG.Pardon the txt talk. I cant decide if i should get the dsi or dsi ll. luv the burgundy color, h8 the price tag. Seriously, its just a supersized (if u liv in the us u’d no about supersize)dsi with insanely awesome colors and a super awesome stylus. Screeen size, im unsure of.My eyes are quite fine, thank you, and aren’t really in need of a huge screen. it really doesnt offer anything new tho. i hav an original ds and thinking of buying a dsi..or a dsi ll. What do u guys think? (again, pardon the text talk, need 2 type fast)
