When Nintendo introduces a new product, it phases out the older model. Presently, though, handheld consumers have two choices: the DS Lite or the DSi. Does that mean eventually we'll only have one choice?
When game site MCVUK ask Nintendo's David Yarnton if the company was planing on phasing out the DS Lite, he replied:
We'll let the market decide. We expect some people will upgrade, but we also anticipate that we'll win over people who were still undecided on DS — the extra features will help convince them. There's an extra incentive.
A more expensive upgrade leaves us wondering whom this is exactly an extra incentive for? Customers or Nintendo?
