Yep, that’s right. Pre-orders for Nintendo’s DSi will start tomorrow, and you can reserve one after you drop $25 on the counter.
A call put in to the local GameStop confirmed that the number of DSi units per store would match the number of units reserved. At best, they may have two or three extra, so if you want one day one — best reserve it.
Also, just a quick note to all customers who get those nifty little discount coupons in the mail: The 30 percent bonus on all games traded towards the purchase of a new DS system doesn’t apply to the DSi.
