Speaking to GI, Team 17 head Martyn Brown’s welcomed the ability to slot and SD card into the newly announced DSi, but has warned the feature may bring more widespread piracy to the platform.
“Adding an SD slot makes a bunch of sense for downloadable content given the way things are going,” he said.
“I just hope they’ve done something to counter the mass piracy that exists via the R4 on the Lite. It scares me that with an SD card input, that might leave it even wider open that it was on the original device.

Speaking to VG247 today, Nintendo has refused to put a date on the release of DSi in the US, saying the information is “not confirmed.”
DSi was announced this morning at a Nintendo press conference in Tokyo and dated for November 1.
Nintendo UK has since announced that the console will hit Europe next spring.
Nintendo’s holding US press activity this evening in California, so hopefully there’ll be an official announcement on the hardware upgrade’s release date then.

Nintendo just confirmed that the newly announced the DSi will be 12 percent thinner than the DS Lite, and will get rid of the GBA slot completely.
The DSi will also include, as leaked by the Nikkei, two built-in cameras according to blog reports, and music playback.
The screens are larger than DS Lite’s at 3.25 inches.
The machine features an SD memory card slot. Apparently you’re able to take pictures on the handheld and view them on Wii.
DSi also features web browsing.
