Nintendo of America marketing exec George Harrison tells Next-Gen that a rumored redesigned DS isn't in the company's immediate future.

"We don't have any imminent plans for an upgrade for the Nintendo DS," said Harrison in a phone interview Thursday. "The product is still selling extremely well around the world."

anyways. lawlz. Slightly wider DS with a few tweaks of the buttons moved around would be swell. Thanks nintendo.
