Nintendo DSi Preloaded With DSiWare Games Coming On Black Friday

BFAds-Best-Buy-Page-31 Best Buy’s Black Friday ad is full of deals and a stealth product announcement. (Thanks for the tip Marcus!!) Later this month, Nintendo will release two Nintendo DSis preloaded with DSiWare games.


One bundle is geared towards Brain Age fans. It includes Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Sudoku, Brain Age Express: Math, Clubhouse Games Express: Card Classics, Photo Clock and a white Nintendo DSi.


The Metallic Blue DSi Mario bundle is better suited for core gamers. Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again!, WarioWare Snapped!, Dr. Mario Express, Mario Calculator, and Mario Clock are loaded on that DSi.


When the Nintendo DSi launched users could get 1,000 DSiWare points worth $10 by connecting to the DSiWare shot. The Brain Age bundle includes apps worth 2,800 DSiWare points ($28) while the Mario bundle has 2,200 DSiWare points ($22) of Mario related programs.


Best Buy also has PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 deals. 120GB PS3s with LittleBigPlanet and the just released Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time go for $299. An Xbox 360 Elite with Lego Batman, Pure, Ghost Recon 2, Sonic the Hedgehog, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, and Wall-E goes for the same price.

    It’s interesting that regular DS games are now being sold as DSi DLC. That’s a great way to extend sales long after the games aren’t available in stores…though I have a feeling Brain Age is.

  • Ah, Black Friday. I really wished I could stay home on that day…

    From what I’ve seen, Best Buy has the best deals so far, fallowed by Target, but I’ll probably won’t take advantage of either. After work, I’m going to Newegg and Amazon, then bed.

  • Eww, that Mario selection is horrible. Wario Ware Snapped is a failure, Minis March Again is at best mediocre and then you’ve got a slim Dr. Mario and two Mario knock-offs. I’d much rather have Photo Clock instead of Mario Clock and the Brain Training games instead of the Nintendo’s most mediocre and underwhelming Mario and Wario games on the service.

    The Mario bundle needs something else. Nothing in that list is really worth getting excited over. Maybe a copy of New Super Mario Bros or Mario Kart DS.
