Nintendo will chop the price of DSi and DSi XL on May 20

In case you’re looking to buy another DS system, then Nintendo has a deal for you. They’re slashing the price of both models, the DSi and the DSi XL, on May 20.

A DSi is priced at $129.99 today, but starting May 20, potential purchasers will be able to walk into a store and plunk down just $99 for the handheld. This is traditionally known as the pricing “sweet spot” for game systems. At $99, it becomes less of an investment and more of an impulse buy. It’s also proof that the DSi won’t be around much longer as Nintendo is making the jump into completely supporting the 3DS.

However, if you prefer the bigger size of the DSi XL, that will still require $129.99 to purchase on May 20. But that’s still a huge discount from the previous retail price of $169.99 (coincidentally, the same price as a 3DS).

Even with the 3DS taking store shelves away from the DS family, Nintendo still has a few DS games planned for release this year including Pokemon Conquest and Pokemon Black 2/White 2.
