If you were planning to upgrade from a DSi to a DSi XL and haven’t done so already, you may want to rethink your purchase as downloadable content lovers will not be able to transfer the DSiWare on the original DSi to the new DSi XL.
You’ll have to buy your DSiWare. Again.
A Nintendo spokesperson told Kotaku that the company was “looking into that specific topic,” but as of right now there isn’t anything to announce.
GoNintendo has an excellent review of the new DSi XL on the site, so I’d suggest going to check it out if you’re planning on picking one up.
I’d say this is a pretty poor move on Nintendo’s part, especially when such an option to have your downloaded content move from platform to platform has been widely available through Xbox Live and PSN.
