Ok this is not specifically to discuss if the rumors are true entirely. But, I am wondering, if they are indeed bringing a new DS out, and it is true the slot 2 is being turfed, will this impact you in any meaningful way? Myself, I don't play ANY slot 2 requiring games. I have the slot 2 ram that I got with the Nintendo Web Browser, but so what (I hardly use the Web Browser). But it's clear the slot 2 option is big with a lot of the DS mob. And being suddenly unable to use any of the slot 2 add on options in the new DS I have been hearing about is, certainly going to irk all the slot 2 using fans. Is it likely the "need" for slot 2 devices can evolve into new hardware? How much is actually dependent on these slot 2 hardware add on items? It will be no doubt frustrating to all the crowd that uses the slot 2 options to see the new doodad not able to indulge them. A local friend is expecting some manner of announcement to arrive with E3. Myself, I am not planning to replace a perfectly fine DSLite just to indulge a new model without some massive hardware option improvements. But I am at least in no danger of disappointment being told slot 2 isn't making the scene in the next item.
