DSi set for April debut stateside?

Pricing and release plans speculated

Rumours abound online this morning (thanks IGN) that Nintendo's DSi handheld - a revision of the DS system - will be out in the USA come April.

The new-look handheld is already a smash-hit in Japan, the nation's best selling gaming device over the Christmas season, with sources now hinting that a North American debut is being readied for "early April" - April 4th being most likely apparently.

Apparently, the same insiders purport to reveal that the DSi will cost 179.99 USD at launch.

A European debut is still expected this "spring", but we've heard no gossip on anything more concrete than this, sadly.
