    Sounds awesome, but very unbelievable. Nintendo won't release a new DS right now, the sales are as strong as ever, and Christmas is coming up

    It does sound awesome. It'd be cool if it were true instead of a rumor but its still a rumor..

    We'll see I guess. I feel that it's a mere rumor, but who knows?

    Less than 20,000 Yen they mentioned. making it.. about A$200? That'll trigger a price drop in the DS lites i suppose.

    I'm perfectly fine with my black DS Lite

    HEY EVERYBODY! IT'S THE MONTHLY NEW DS RUMOR AGAIN! [​IMG]

    It's practicaly October already and Nintendo said nothing about it.. so, I don't think they'll release a new DS this year.. [​IMG]

    Well, if I'm not mistaken, there's a Nintendo Press Conference being held on the next Thursday.. if the thing is real, they'll confirm it there.. [​IMG]

    this.
    although, it could be like a portable webcam maybe?
    also, music playback would be nice.
    how much is 20000 yen?

    this is bullshit. nintendo's sales r still thru the roof, especially with the onslaught of games that came out recently, and a whole bunch of heavy hitters still yet to come out. r they rly stupid enough to kill their own sales by making the ds obsolete? a remodeled version MAYBE but a new GAMEBOY (yes gameboy, not ds 2 u nubs) is highly unlikely.

    also, to compete with iphone? that's bs. nintendo has official made the switch to casual gamers (aka everyone but us). the next system will once again be kid friendly, and probably won't have all the neat little features we would like it to have (such as bluetooth, built in memory, etc). hell, the next handheld will be my deciding factor to if i should ditch nintendo for good. (already lost faith in the wii, s'all bout 360!)

    [/rant]

    bout 200 bucks. the general rule of thumb for american dollars (and canadian now lol) is just knock off two zeros. i fink.

    Bah, these rumors pop up all the time - I'll believe it when it's officially announced.

    A DS with a built-in camera would kickass, sorta. And the music play-back function would be interesting. The stronger WiFi will be pretty useful too.

    The weird thing is, the source has sources and why would someone go through all that trouble just to fool people?
