Start Sending Your DSi Pics to Facebook Tonight

The ability to upload photos to Facebook with your DSi hits North America tonight, Nintendo said.

The free downloadable system update should be available after 5 p.m. Pacific, according to Nintendo. The update will allow DSi owners to tap on a Facebook icon while reviewing pictures in the portable to send them to the user's Facebook profile.

"Facebook and Nintendo DSi build on the trend of personalization that is so important to consumers," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "We're giving people the tools to express themselves in creative new ways and show off the results to their friends and family on Facebook."
