Redmond, Wash. - Nintendo said it will offer special DSi-plus-software bundles for a Black Friday promotion beginning Nov. 27.
Consumers can purchase blue or white DSi handhelds that are pre-installed with more than $20 in software, until supplies run out.
"These limited-edition bundles come packed with some of the great Nintendo DSiWare games and applications that have made Nintendo DSi such a big hit with shoppers young and old," stated Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's sales and marketing executive VP "The special price and pre-installed titles make the bundles a huge value for the holidays."
According to a Nintendo spokesperson the special DSi bundles will carry a $169.99 estimated street price but retailers are free to set their own pricepoints.
The blue DSi will come with five Mario-themed DSiWare titles, including Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again; Dr. Mario Express; WarioWare: Snapped!; Mario Calculator; and Mario Clock.
The white DSi bundle offers brain-teaser titles, including Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters; Brain Age Express: Sudoku; Brain Age Express: Math; Clubhouse Games Express: Card Classics; and Photo Clock.
