Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aime, has explained the reasoning behind Nintendo’s decision to release a larger version of the popular DSi hand-held gaming console.
Its purpose isn’t just to make things bigger for the player, but to attract observers, as well. With an improved view angle, it begins to mimic the extended appeal of Wii. As more people watch the action, more want to get involved and in the process, new players are born.
