Sony: Silly gamers, DSi is for kids!


UPDATE: As if on cue, Nintendo told Tuesday about "hardcore gamers" being the first to pick up a DSi when it arrives in the U.S. sometime after April 2009.

"Right out of the gate [the DSi audience] is probably the hardcore gamers," said Nintendo of America spokesperson Charlie Scibetta. "They're usually the early adopters that want to get the latest version of something, and they'll be the ones that put it through its paces the hardest and give us all kind of feedback and tell us what they like and don't like. [laughs]"
