    The next Gameboy at E3?

    We could be expecting the next handheld to be revieled this E3!
    First, release years of the handhelds:

    Gameboy (GB) 1989
    Gameboy Pocket (GBP) 1996
    Gameboy Colour (GBC) 1998
    Gameboy Advance (GBA) 2001
    Gameboy Advance SP (GBASP) 2003
    Nintendo DS (DS) 2004
    Gameboy Micro (GBM) 2005
    Nintendo DS Lite (DSL) 2006

    Ok, the difference between Gameboy and Gameboy Coulour is significantly large, but at the time, handheld consoles were new, and this is expected, as there were few to rival the Gameboy, there was no hurry.

    Now, between GBC and GBA, there is 3 years. 3 years between GBA and DS. So the rate at which the handhelds are being releases, has been frequent. So, we should expect a new handheld by at least 2009, two years from now, and this would make the difference between DS and the next handheld 5 years, longer than with the last ones. But this can be expected, with the DS being at the top of sales charts. So, they could very well be announcing it at this E3, with only 2-3 E3's before it's released. They wouldn't of course have a prototype yet, that would come in next years E3. This would be mainly an announcment, and something like "The controls will be revolutionary even compared to the DS", or something of the sort. They would also announce the code name for the project, which could end up as the final name.


    Here's how it could go:
    1st E3: Code name announced, a few words to get rumours going

    2nd E3: Design showed, as well as new controls, and hardware aspects (graphics and such) revealed. A video of a game being played on it.

    3rd E3: Final design, with playable ones for audience to try. Games for it announced, as well as other software, and any final aspects of it. Everything not yet shown.

    We can be sure that there wont be yet another improved DS, but an actual new handheld, which will most likely have better graphics (PSP graphics at least, hopefully). Who knows, they may go as far as GameCube game compatibility (doubt it, even if the discs are small, they aern't small enough, and Nintendo want's to keep it cheap).

    i could be very wrong. Nintendo might not announce anything, worried they will cause DS Lite sales to drop, as people would be ready to wait (I'm waiting. Still playing on an old DS...). But there is always a possibility.

    It's a possibility, and a hope. They'll be the stars of the show if they do.

    Think about how much an NES first cost. They have actually gotten cheaper. Consoles now-a-days would have cost a couple thousand back then.

    I dont think they need to make a new hand held for a while.



    I don't want rep. Rep me again and I'll have half a mind to rep each and every one of you.

    i dont think so, the DS is 3 years old but its doing too well for them to change it,idk i just dont think they would , to me the DS doesnt feel that old and i dont think they are really pushing to make a new system, idk imo i dont think we will see one for a while.
    i guess i keep forgetting the DS is 3 it just doesnt seem like it

    What if, on a crowded street, you look up and see something appear that should not, given what we know, be there. You either shake your head and dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than we think. Perhaps it really is a doorway to another place. If you choose to go inside you may find many unexpected things."-Miyamoto

    I think it's a bit too early to be revealing the next game boy. Maybe next year they will reveal some details about the next generation, but not this year.

    Wii games that I own: Zelda, The godfather, Wii sports, Resident Evil 4.

    Next up: Metroid Prime 3 Corruption
