Nintendo registered a patent for a definitely interesting concept. A portable game system or mobile phone with interchangeable controls that can be switched, for instance between a D-pad and an analog stick.
A new handheld seems more reasonable than a mobile phone. Hopefully they don't cut corners and go all out with their next handheld if true. ;)
Yeah they probably patented it related to mobile phones as well in order to own the patent on every possible application.
I hope they drop 3D on it, the 3D fad is over now. I read in an interview that the graphics could of been better on the 3DS for gamers if they didn't add 3D into it. I can't remember where I say it but I definitely did see it. Now graphics aren't everything, it's not Nintendo's "thing" however if you could choose between 3D and better looking graphics I think you would rather have better graphics.
Obviously the majority of handheld gamers chose 3D over better graphics. The 3DS is doing much better than it's stronger competition.
@KonsoruMasuta Thats when "3D" was in though...it's pretty much fizzled out now. Not to mention the "DS" brand alone is stronger then Nintendo think.
I really enjoy Revelations in 3D, (I know it's not for everyone). 3D is not waning considering home theater and our Cineplex. No sooner than I would suggest VR will be a fad, this type of immersion seems to be in demand. With the heavy investment into this tech by Sony, Facebook, James Cameron? No dought 3 dimensional imaging will be incorporated as well..
yeah a fad. do you have any idea how many 3D related patents and amazing high-resolution glasses free 3dtvs there are out there that are bogged down by standards and other dumb things? your children and your childrens children will all game on "fad" displays then. but you most likely wont have kids.
Their was a pop up then removal of a New Nintendo console yesterday by Nintendo for their E3 Digital Event. Maybe it's this? I'm sure Nintendo have something in the works. They always do. Can't wait for E3!!!
new console info? where'd you see that?
http://nintendoeverything.c... EDIT: Sorry, didn't see that it was debunked. Guess its nothing then.
That's been debunked. The person who originally broke the story apologized and said he pulled that screenshot from the 2011 E3.
Look like a 3DS that will be designed for lefty.
I hope in a way it doesn't give devs headaches with button mapping.
I'm about to get a 3ds. I think I'll wait for nintendo's E3 to see what they are up to
this is something they experimented with the 3DS. I can't see it working practically. (Oh quick, I want to play X game, where's my X attachment? now I can't play it.)
*sigh* Same old story: Nintendo releases a console and the console's cheap, but they get you on the peripherals.
wow!!!! I wish there will be a way to play 3DS games on TV...
I still think doing a USB add on that reads Ds/3ds games would be awesome for the Wii u. The GameCube GBA player was brillant and very much used. So why not for the wiiu
I still have my gamecube with gameboy player,i was all about it. A similar device i doubt would come though,it would be digital download if at all and not till the next handheld is out.
Maybe it isn't a system, rather its a gameplay peripheral.
that would be a great move, i wonder if it works on screens as well, might let u take off ur handheld screen and snap it on ur controller eliminating need for an expensive gamepad love my gamepad btw -)
Maybe they are finally moving on with the original Wii U plan and are introducing a handheld that you can upload your Wii U games to and play on the go.
The headline implies this is a modular system... What with the advent of Modular Phones this would not be surprising. Though I still say its a Gameplay Peripheral instead. I smell Pokemon...
It looks like a Game & Watch.
