With all the money Nintendo has made with the Wii and DS the past few years, their next console and technology better wreak havoc in the gaming world. My god they can afford to do anything they want.

I doubt nintendo will make the new handheld more powerful then the Wii, the rumor of it being as powerful as the gamecube(500mhz) seems about right.

I really look forward to Nintendo's next handheld. I have been waiting for 3D to arrive and flourish for a long time. Hopefully the TV, movie, and game industries will help propel 3D technologies into the mainstream and become something that people down the road will wonder how lived without it.
