    Its already been 1 year for Wii. At least 4 more years until a new console is ready.

    DS has been around a while but it could go for another 1 or 2 years at most.
    Except word of any new handheld hasn't even been mentioned, and by the looks of this, it won't be for a while.

    Really? Seems like the DS has been out longer. Guess I can wait another year then.

    DS hasnt been around too long. It could go for another 1 or 2 years at most.

    I'm sure when real news of a consoles replacement hits the public, it likely affects sales of units and games for that console. If news of a DS replacement (whether it be a year away or whatever) hit nightly news, parents may avoid buying something that they may feel will too quickly become obsolete.

    Yeah I know what I'm saying is just common sense... ok i dont know what to type here.

    The Gameboy Micro was released almost a year after the DS.

    Plus the DS is supposed to go hand in hand with the Wii.

    I hardly count the Gameboy Micro to be anything special. Who actually bought one of those?

    The Micro was not a console replacement. Sales of Gameboy Advance Sp continued even after the Micro came out, it was just a cheap piece of hardware they knew they could make some extra cash off of.

    Even if the DS is supposed to go hand in hand with the Wii, it hasn't really done that too well so far. A replacement console would obviously do this better.

    The DS replaces the Gameboy is what I'm saying. SP's and Micro's were still selling even after the DS's launch.

    i at least hope if they make another portable console they keep it backwards compatable like the DS, but only the new one should be able to play GB, GBC, GBA,DS, and w/e the new ones are

    I can understand playing one generation back but do you really need support for Gameboy games? Do you really put in like 10 hours a week on them? If you're that into gameboy games why don't you still have your gameboy? Besides you can get a used one really cheap. I just bought a Gameboy for $23 on eBay. Besides the current market didn't grow up with gameboy and couldn't care less.
