Nintendo confirms MP3 player for DS

Nintendo has confirmed that an MP3 player for the platform holder's handhelds, sold under the name of Play Yan in Japan, is coming to Europe. Nintendo has yet to confirm whether the MP3 player will come complete with an SD card. A 1GB SD card, which can hold approximately 240 songs, currently retails for around 30 Euro.

The spokesperson dismissed suggestions that the player will only work with SD cards of up to 2GB storage capacity, stating: "You can put any other sized SD card into it, not just 2GB. According to the spokesperson, "Both price and release date for Europe are still to be confirmed." However, gadget website Gizmodo is citing an October release date and a 29.99 Euro price point.
