I'd usually call bullshit on rumours like this, but this PDF file has been found on the official Nintendo.jp site announcing the successor to the DS with a working title of the Nintendo 3DS.

:lol: Well I don't think they expect you to buy them all. They're using their existing kit, with a few alterations to try and attract new users, without alienating the older users (by providing backwards compatibility).

 

It made me a lot more interested than I have been before tbh.

The DS is probably the best console of the past five years in my opinion and it's left the PSP dead in the water. 

 

They've already used headtracking using the DSi camera to produce 3D effects, so it may be an expansion on that idea

Have only really played one game for more than 10 minutes on my DS - GTA: Chinatown Wars.  The rest I've played are, in my opinion, total shovelware to be honest.

 

The PSP was a much better machine and held my attention more but the awful, awful battery life killed that as well.

Yeah I'm a lot more interested in DS games than the attempts at making portable versions of next-gen games.

 

Saying that, the iPhone is getting more and more full of interesting games, so I'm not sure I want either.

No, it's out in Feb in Japan.

 

Aye - my fucking reading has been comprimised sitting looking at the bloody screen all day yesterday.  I thought it said December for some reason.

 

Just hope that we don't get the customary 1:1 conversion ratio from American prices for hardware - £300 would be a killer for this.  Anything much above £200 would probably scare off the 'traditional' casual Nintendo customer over here to be honest.
