McDonald's has its own DSi

inline image "Not too long ago it was reported that McDonald's in Japan would be purchasing a boat load -- well, nearly 8,000 -- of Nintendo DSi systems for the purpose of training new hires. In the video above -- from Bloomberg -- you can get a good look at the system which sports a nifty McDonald's arch on the back of one of the black systems.

Along with the system itself the video showcases the software used to train the employees. It looks like a combination of Diner Dash and Brain Age with a reassuring green circle and chime appearing when the employee performs the proper action in the game.

The manager of one of the stores interviewed by Bloomberg claims that training time has been cut in half by this new DSi integration.

Ebert may still have a hard time at grasping games as art, but corporations are happily embracing games as a means to an end.

It will be curious to see if one of these McDonald's branded DSi systems is ever "emancipated" from the fast food chain. After all, less than 8,000 have been made and a collector would possibly be willing to pay a hefty fee for one.

What Kombo is truly interested in is whether or not the game will have special unlocks to train the employees in making the "limited-time only" McRib or McLobster sandwiches. Then again, the McLobster is more art than food."


It looks cute.

Even if it was Burger King, the DSi wouldn't be anymore cool without a burger place advertise on it.
