    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. :wtf:

    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. . . .

    I know what you are saying, but you misunderstand me.

    I do understand that bigger screen + same resolution = crappygraphics.

    However, some emulators employ special features to make ps1 and n64 games look good on computer monitors. Nintendo would be able to do the same.

    Get a lite. This one won't be released until the DS lite sales significantly drop. At the moment, the sales are accelerating :lol:

    I doubt we'll see another DS until at least September '08. Probably later

    Not till late '08. . . I wonder how long Nintendo expects the DS to last, I wanted another handheld with better graphics really, but Nintendo said they had no plans for one for quite awhile so I thought I'd get a lite.

    RAWR! I wanted to get a new DS since my one is pretty banged up and as soon as I read that article I thought I might get this. But when you posted that, I remembered it said no GBA-Catridge Slot. Now I have to stick with the DS Phat since my SuperCard only fits in the GBA Slot :mad5: :mad2: :cryin: :eek: :prrr: :( :sad: :frown2: :shocked: :wtf: :mad:.

    Buy an R4. It goes in the DS slot, is $40 and is actually the best device around for DS. No patching is required for anything and it is compatible with every game and almost every homebrew.

    I can't get a R4DS since I got the SuperCard as a Summer Special Deal from America and the miniSD from Hong Kong and now I can't return them... meh, I'll stick with my The Day After It Came Out In Europe DS Phat... until a new handheld comes out which uses some disc or catrdige. Then I'll just toss the SuperCard. Also, I just noticed the box which they came in (PRIORITY MAIL is less than a metre away from me. I'm gonna play with the bubble wrap...:lol: .

    This looks sucky. I would never afford one anyway. But no GBA games (so much for games using dual slot stuff) or any accessories like rumble packs, so that would possibly be worse for competitive Metroid if players use them.

    If it has a stronger processor I may be interested, cause then homebrew stuff might allow music to be played while playing games (on the R4).

    It would probably have an internal rumble feature.
