According to IGN, three independent sources have told them that the revamp of the DS Lite is coming on April 4 for $179.99 for the United States.
Over a million have been sold in Japan, where sales were flagging due to so many Japanese citizens already owning a DS or DS Lite.
Nintendo's DSi handheld console looks similar to previous DS versions, but has two built-in 0.3 megapixel cameras.
Other features include a SD Card slot that can enable AAC audio playback, 256MB internal memory, as well as downloadable DSi games through the DSi Shop. The two screens are also slightly larger at 3.25 inches. Battery life is reportedly lower by 25%.
The front slot for Game Boy Advance cartridges has been removed, removing compatibility for GBA games as well as the Nintendo DS Rumble Pak and Guitar Hero: On Tour series which use the handheld grip for playing.
