    DS gets another redesign



    Another version of the DS
    http://www.next-gen.biz/index.php?op...7952&Itemid=59
    Nintendo has already finished work on its successor to the DS Lite, claims Pacific Crest Securities analyst Evan Wilson.Released in Japan in March 2006, Nintendo’s redesigned DS handheld, the DS Lite, has regularly topped hardware sales charts on a global basis. In spite of this, Wilson says Nintendo already has its successor ready to go when the time is right, reports GameSpot.

    "Our contacts indicate that a refreshed DS is complete," said Wilson in an investors note. "It is thinner (it has no GBA port), has on-board storage, and larger screens.”

    However, acknowledging the sales success Nintendo is currently enjoying, Wilson said he doesn't expect the firm to launch any revised hardware until existing models suffer a notable drop in sell through in the major markets.

    “… We do not expect a revamped Wii or DS until sales begin to tail off in all three major geographies."
    No GBA port ?

    If you mean flashcartridges, the R4 is the best one and goes directly into the DS port.

    I'm glad they aren't releasing it yet. There is no point in competing against themselves unless the DS lites are no longer selling well.

    WTF I am planning to get a DS Lite.

    I'm confused, Is this the next handheld, or the next version of the DS, please answer.

    If it is the next version of the DS bigger screens would mean crappier graphics.

    No. If it made the graphics crapper they would have to employ some kind of function to increase the graphics virtually.

    The graphics would appear better or identical, but not worse

    so. . . . are they gonna create games w/ better graphics only for this system? If not bigger screens = crappier graphcs.

    Unless they don't use the entire screen. . . but still if the screen has more pixels and developers make games in that format they would not be playable on the ds lite. . .

    They won't make games exclusively for this one, because then it would simply be a new console with backwards compatibility.

    I don't know how they would handle a bigger screen, but I assume they would employ some kind of features to it.

    If they don't develop seprate games for it bigger screens = crappier graphics. They might be able to do some techno mumbo-jumbo to make it look o.k. but you would still notice the difference.

    hmm. . . what they could do would be create a format that ran more pixels on a bigger screen, but a standard amount of pixels on a normal ds, but I'm not even sure thats possible. -_-'

    3 versions of one console. . . .
