DSi digital content shop announced

Ben Parfitt
After the huge successes the firm has enjoyed with both its retro Virtual Console service and original software shop WiiWare, Nintendo has now confirmed that a similar store for DS owners is being lined up.

Users will use the same points scheme currently employed on Wii to pay for downloads, with the current Wii Points system to be renamed Nintendo Points. The platform holder also announced that those who buy a DSi will receive 1000 free points to spend on the service.

In related news, Nintendo has also moved to address the growing storage problems on Wii by pledging to release an update that will allow users to save their downloaded content onto SD card.

The news follows the announcement of a brand new multimedia revision of its popular handheld, dubbed the DSi.
