    nVidia Tegra wins contract for next-gen Nintendo DS - Bright Side Of News*

    Sucks for those who bought a DSi.

    Nintendo has not even announced a new handheld, much less a release date. Until Nintendo says something, everything is all just rumor.


    Plus it looks like the Feb. 2010 date refers to the chip's release, not the next DS.

    Earlier in the same article it said:
    And even if that's accurate, that doesn't mean that's when the next handheld is released for sale, just when it's first shown to the public. A release could be many months later after that (well into 2011 by that point).

    Wow, do we really need an even bigger DS? Seriously, I'd prefer it to remain a handheld.. Not that I'd buy a new DS, I'm sticking with my DS phat untill it's broken or untill there's a REAL new generation (not just two cameras stuck onto it :p)

    OT: Even if it's leaked now, this is just the chips. So it could easily take 2-3 years for it to be ready.

    I read this elsewhere as well, I don't think they'd release another new version of the DS (the big DSi) and then a few month later launch an all new system, at the least you can expect to see a full year go by before they announce anything, probably more, let alone release it.

    When they do make a new one i want it to be the same size as the dsi but with a bigger top screen.I want the bouth screens to be hi-def and the cameras to be at least 2 megapixels and have video recording capability WITH ZOOM AND KNIGHT VISION.Also i wish nintendo would give up that stupid aac file thing and allow mp3 &mp4 vidio & audio playback.Skype would be greate more built in memory for better web browsing.And please stop making the games to play with WEP only,let them use different encriptions like the dsi & a strong battery ot push all that.Thats my wish List.

    Knight Vision?
    Is that to help you determine if the Black Knight is attacking? Better call King Arthur!


    But seriously, you're describing a PDA or a smart phone (without the phone part).

    And AAC is used because there are no licensing fees like with MP3.
