The Nintendo DSi is one of the most popular game consoles manufactured by Nintendo. It was released 2008. After its release, the DSi was very well received, with the single complaint being the lack of exclusive software. The extra features incorporated into the system convinced many gamers to purchase this console instead of the previously released Nintendo DS models. Users must modify, or mod, the DSi in order to be able to play downloaded home-brew games, read e-books or use the console as an mp3 player.
