Watch the US DSi launch video after the break, if you dare. Apparently this is the next step forward in portable gaming, but there’s not too much talk about games in there, to be fair.
Apparently, the machine’s about “form, function, features and fun”. We think there’s one “f” you missed, Nintendo.

According to this Trading Markets piece, Nikkei and Nintendo are to bring out a piece of DS software designed to make learning about the Japanese financial system “fun”.
“The software will be designed so that users can learn the basics of the economy — how it works and keywords for understanding it — by tapping on the devices’ touch-screen panels and answering a series of quizzes,” says the story.
“By making the learning process fun, Nintendo hopes the software will attract young people who are interested in the economy.”
