Nintendo DSi’s Box is Very, Very Shiny

Speaking of nice things that we can’t have, here’s one that kind of puts us all in the same boat. The DSi is launching soon in Japan, and already stores around the country are taking pre-orders for it (and I’m sure if you look around, there are importers here doing the same).

Thanks to Ota Road via Kotaku, we get to see what the box looks like. And relatively speaking, it’s what every other box of Nintendo hardware has been looking like as of late, but with one key difference I’ve noticed.

Look at how shiny that thing is! Which is interesting, as one of the things noted at Nintendo’s recent Fall Summit is how not-shiny the DSi is, sporting a matte finish instead.

Funny how that works out.
