Buy DSi Early to Score Free DSi Points

Purchase a shiny new Nintendo DSi in the United States and connect your system to the Nintendo DSi Shop within the first six months of availability--between April 5 and October 5--and Nintendo will reward your enthusiasm with 1,000 free Nintendo DSi Points.

Nintendo DSi Points can be redeemed in the online DSi Shop for downloadable DSiWare games and applications. Given that the DSi Shop 'price' break points are 200, 500 and 800+ points, 1,000 points will presumably buy you a reasonable amount of lovelies for your new toy. As with the Wii Shop Channel, 100 Points equals $1, though DSi and Wii Shop Channel Points are not interchangeable.

Already released in Japan, the Nintendo DSi represents the third revision of the hardware. It sports a slimmer profile thanks to the removal of the Game Boy Advance slot, bigger screens, two cameras, and the ability to buy and download games online. It arrives in the United States on Sunday, April 5, carrying a suggested price of $169.99.

    So is the new Zelda only compatible with the new DSi, meaning you have to buy the DSi to play it?
