Nintendo's next generation handheld may be as little as 15 months off. How will it compare to the existing DS? VideoGamesDaily investigates.
I'd say it's quite probable Nintendo will just carry on releasing new models of the existing DS FOREVER...
True but hey, why even bother with new models when you can just repackage the old ones? They repackaged DS Phat and resold it as DS XL. People still pay for it (Sadly).
I hope they don't make it any bigger. The widescreen model is too chunky.
DS1 revisions getting a little OTT with the DSi XL right... And to think some people actually own all of them
to be honest, don't even keep your hope too high! I don't think their DS2 will even better the current PSP's resolution! knowing Nintendo, they'll milk the hell out of the current DS specs for quite some time! there's a saying "why innovate if you can still dominate" - ok, actually I just came out with that! :P
two words: worthless crap.
We can expect Super Mario Party Winter Kart Racing with Tennis, Golf, Soccer and friends 5!
I'm a huge DS guy, but I do think the DSiXL or whatever is going a bit overboard.
I agree with most of the above. The DSiXLL is a bit overboard to be honest, they should've just stuck with the DSi and left it as that. Only going further if they have to.
What about Wii 2? Or Wii HD or whatever. When is that out?
solid state is where storage is going to be at in the future. ds carts should be able to go up to 64gb. i hope Nintendo doesn't screw up. facts from sticking with Nintendo (im pretty sure my guess=70% right) -Battery life will be amazing -will innovate/try something new in 1 or 2 ways -the graphics will be better than psp but conserved compared to psp2 -will have a decent starting lineup -will have a camera -will have multimedia support -will have a sd card slot -3-5" screens -powered by nvidia -getting it on day 1 -should be backwards compatable will have 3 slots maybe 4 -ds, ds2(new form card),gba, micro sd -lack of analog stick most likely - Ability to play 3 generations of handheld games :D
Well, I'm pretty sure that if they do a DS2 (or whatever they're next handheld will be) it will basically be the same exact thing as it is now, but with slight improvements. I'm sure it will be something like this: - A slighty larger screen - Graphics that are closer to GameCube quality instead of N64 - A camera on both front and back - No GBA slot - No built in SD slot, instead you'll have to buy a special Nintendo adapter to use it - No built in microphone, instead you'll have to buy a game that it's bundled with. It will be something that will be really small and goes into a special slot near the bottom screen - An option for TV out, but you'll have to buy a special Nintendo adapter to use it - No backwards compatibility at all - Instead, they'll make you pay to download the older games from an extremely limited selection of NES, GB, GBA, and NDS games - Mini Cd's of some sort instead of cartridges (mostly just to have an excuse for no backwards compatability) It probably won't be much different than that.
thats the next ds on opposite day. sounds more like the psp2 o.o infact let me make some changes to make it more sony like Much larger screen Newtype-HDMicroHDMI-LCD2 - Graphics that are closer to 360 quality instead of ps2 - A HD camera on both front and back - No slot for umds Just for new format - No built in SuperMicro HDD slot, instead you'll have to buy a special Sony adapter to use it - 2nd analog will be touch sensitive It will be something that will activate near the bottom screen - An option for TV out, but you'll have to buy a special Sony adapter to use it - No backwards compatibility at all (DUh no umd man) - Instead, they'll make you pay to download the older games from an extremely limited selection of psp,??? , ??? , and ??? games (havent they done this) - Mini Blueray Disc of some sort instead of cartridges (mostly just to have an excuse for no backwards compatability)
