Nintendo Confirms Western DSi Release, AAC Playback Only? >
2008/10/02 15:00:03: Posted by DM
At the San Francisco follow-up event to the Japanese DSi announcement, Nintendo confirmed a US release of the DSi, but it will not debut until "well into 2009." They also revealed Club Nintendo's North American debut. The DSi was not the focus of the event, but the presentation began with a demo of the unit. Something to note, the demo showed that the unit would have internal flash memory, but it also showed the unit playing only AAC files, and not MP3. According to GS, that is all the unit will support, even though the Japanese unit supposedly has an MP3 player. The rest of the event was to highlight the upcoming Wii releases for the year.

*Update: Looks like its AAC playback only in all regions, folks. Sorry.

No mp3? Wow, mega fail.

This tells me that the SD card expansion will not allow you to run games from the card.

That's a fairly mind-boggling decision. I mean, what's the point of making people convert their music to AAC just to play on their portable when every other digital music player on the market can? Yes, AAC is a better format, but I can't see it being that hard to support both.

Using the word 'fail' does not make you cool on the internet. Are you about to declare something 'epic win!'?

Comes down to licensing fees obviously. For *years* you've been able to play mp3's on DS with 3rd party add-ons anyway.
