Kotaku: "The current DSi screen is 3.25 inches. Rumor has it that Nintendo will be releasing a new DS with a 4 inch screen. What would that look like? Time to bust out the ruler and additional screen."
that'd be so much awesome. playing on bigger screens =]
Pimping that Pokemon Emerald I see.. The bigger screens would be better but come onnnnnnnn, another handheld incarnation? I still have my original DS, and don't plan on getting a DSi anyway, not even for a bigger screen. Mainly because there aren't any great games on the system besides Pokemon anyway. How about you guys make a DS player for the Wii instead so I can watch on my 60 inch?
With Wii isn't selling as fast as it used to be, Nintendo needs extra cash cow. With so many gamers already own DSi, an easy way is release a DSi with 4" screen because there isn't much extra engineering needed. The overall design is probably still the same as DSi. Nintendo knows plenty of DSi fans will buy it. Nintendo has always prove that "keep it simple stupid" design always make more money than Sony that puts far more engineering into PSP or PSP Go. Wii is mostly a repackaged GameCube with DVD drive and basic motion sensor controller and it sells like hotcakes.
It would look like: www.Openpandora.org
dsi would look more appealing with psp screen size.
Because at the rate at which all these new iterations of the NDS'es coming out, you'd only have to wait a couple months before a 6"+ screen version comes out with voice recognition, built in toaster and a foot massager.
I don't see how this is really a positive. Yeah the screen may be bigger, but resolution will be the same as the smaller one. It will make the image look blurry because the pixels will be larger. Try turning the 800 by 600 resolution on a 1920 by 1200 monitor. Although the analogy is rather extreme, the image is looks better on a smaller screen rather than a larger one.
Well it's not been confirmed yet but it's said to be for people will eyesight problems, it'll mean they'll be able to actually see the writing on the DS screens but it will be of a lower quality to the usual screen and of course less portable.
lol dam this handheld cycle is pissin me off. almost 5 years we need to move on. cellphones are gettin more powerfull than my psp and ds. like wow im diggin 4 inch screens but something new. nostalgia for the ds is making my day tho.
