I'd say that is pretty dead...

Look at the phat when lite came out. Look at the lite when the DSi came out.

It ain't rocket science.

yes, but in this case the 3ds is the successor to the ds not just a remodel with added features like the previous ones. I still played games on my gba sp and passed on the ds until the ds lite came out.

I think a majority of people will hold out for the inevitable remodel of 3ds with a lower price point, just as they did with the ds to ds lite.

Yeah, I've got the original ds and quite a lot of games to go with it, but there's still loads of games I want to pick up. Plenty of life in it yet even when the 3DS comes out.

im quite sure this is just a re-model. GAME UK said so on they're website. The successor to a DS won't be announced on paper like this one was. 3DS = Nintendo DS in 3d, that's it.

A few quotes from kotaku.

"According to Nintendo, the product will go on sale between April 2010 and March 2011.

The Nintendo 3DS will succeeded the Nintendo DS series"

"It is important to stress that the Nintendo 3DS is a new hardware series."

This is from an article on kotaku, which takes official statements from nintendo itself:

The ds is hands the best handheld console ever made. I just cant wait to see what got next. One thing i hoped is that moved away from carts but seem to not have.
