Nintendo, £149.99

The third incarnation of Nintendo’s dual-screen console is a sleek beast. In lieu of the DS Lite’s plasticky look is a more grownup gadget with a matte finish. With two cameras and improved audio functions, it offers developers more to get their teeth into, with gamers reaping the rewards – once they’ve come to terms with the surprisingly hefty price tag. But the most interesting aspect of theDSi isn’t the hardware, it’s the Apple-style applications store, set to be packed with serried ranks of games and other digital delights.
