Nintendo Denies New DS Model

Ign reports: Nintendo Japan flat out denied today the possibility of a DS hardware revision for this year's E3.

In response to an inquiry from Japan's Yukan Fuji website about recent comments from Enterbrain president Hirokazu Hamamura regarding a possible redesign for the portable, Nintendo Japan's head of PR said, "We cannot comment on the specifics of what will be announced at E3, but at the very least there won't be anything like what Mr. Hamamura suggested, so would like to clearly deny this. We're having a hard time understanding what kind of evidence [Mr. Hamamura] had for saying this."

According to a Bloomberg report, Hamamura mentioned during a seminar on the 11th that, looking at historical context, it was possible that we would see a hardare revision for the DS at E3. Nintendo's PR department initially responded to Bloomberg by saying "At the present we cannot say anything."

The 2008 edition of Hamamura's annual seminar was presented to investors and mainstream press.

The story is too old to be commented.

It wouldn't surprise me if they added new colors to the DS. But besides that I'm looking forward to the next handheld. Because yes, it's nice, but I think they could make the system run faster and increase the power it has. Oh, they also need to add a even brighter screen, so I can get a tan during the winter ;p
