dsI think not

Finally, this morning Nintendo announced that the DSi will arrive in the US on April 5 at a $169.99 price point. The handheld, which has been on sale in Japan since November 2008, will be available in black (pictured) and an all-new blue hue. Unfortunately, when contacted by GameSpot UK for a European announcement, Nintendo Europe declined to comment on the DSi's release in Europe, its final major territory.

Not that it matters, because you'd have to be INSANE to buy a European DSi, as an English-speaker. With the stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid region protection they want to put into the DSi and the tendency of games to release in England a year late at twice the price, if at all...
