In early April, the Nintendo DSi will go on sale in North America, Europe and Australia. It may be
spring autumn, but it's not to early for Christmas DSi shopping.
When asked by The Times whether it would be a good idea to buy the DSi early for Christmas, Nintendo UK exec David Yarnton replied:
I always advise people to buy early. One of the things that people don't seem to understand is that factories are producing constantly; they don't peak and trough. So we're producing product all the time, but then everyone wants it all at the one end of the year. It's just so hard to try and keep up.
So if you want Nintendo hardware this holiday season, start shopping EIGHT MONTHS EARLY.
