It obviously gone to be abandoned. The 3ds is basically a ds with 3d. So developers are gone to jump on that gimmick and start making a bunch of games for it. So i think the ds will stop getting games. I think developers who are currently designing a game for the ds will just port it to the 3ds. The ds will most likely become the ps2

Well, the PS2 has managed to stick around long after the launch of the PS3, so if that's the fate of the DS, then we can expect to see it in stores for years to come.

Well hopefully Nintendo will keep their promise, and localize some stellar Japanese DS games. Tales series for example.

@firefoxprime: I really hope so. There are so many amazing franchises in Japan that never see the light of day in North America, both on the DS and the Wii.

*sigh* I love my DS, shame that it's getting replaced by something that can barely play 5 hours with 3D off and brightness down and just charges you money for the same games you've already bought.
