Gamestop boss Bob McKenzie has told VentureBeat that DSi pre-orders are significantly higher than they were for the first DS.

“We’ve seen some pretty brisk pre-orders on DSi,” he said.

“It’s probably double where we were on the original DS, as far as reservation activity, so we’re expecting some great things from that.”

We’ve already written the headline, “New Nintendo hardware in record debut shock”.

The revamped handheld goes on sale in the US on April 5, and on April 3 in Europe.
