DSi LL + TV tuner package, given to earthquake victims in Japan. Nintendo sent out products to people living in the evacuation centers, but didn’t make any efforts to publicize these charitable gestures, as detailed in a statement given by CEO Satoru Iwata at the last shareholders meeting (and then not printed in the transcript!). Were it not for one of the recipients posting these images at Hachimaki, we’d never know what Nintendo’s donated systems comprised, or even what they looked like!
In addition to entertainment, these sets allow families to receive over-the-air TV broadcasts, and therefore keep up with news. Eric pointed out one other potential benefit — being, essentially, extremely limited-edition bundles with exclusive packaging, these sets are inevitably going to make some people a lot of money on online auctions.
