    Nobody is sure just what Nintendo's new console will be so it's a little premature to be calling it the DS2. Dubbing it the DS2 only leads to confusion that could easily be avoided by giving it a random codename. Post suggestions in this topic and I will post a proper poll once there are enough choices, that is if anyone wants to go along with this.

    please avoid using any of these:

    DS2
    GBA2
    GBA3
    GB4

    I think we do not need to make one up ourselves as Nintendo are sure to give us an amazing one which will only leave us wanting more.

    Remember the videos and name of the Wii before, oh, it was so exciting! I still have those videos from before we knew what it looked like!

    After the Wii I hoped their next handheld console would be called the 'Puu'.

    This is one of the larger Nintendo handheld communities on the web who's to say we don't have the right to give it a proper codename? Nintendo is not going to release a codename kicknhorse, and probably not the official name until very close to announcement time.

    Let's see....
    Rumours have it that it'll contain Force Feedback,Tilt control & maybe powered by NVIDIA Tegra Chip
    It'll most probably be based on the DSi (with Camera, SD Card slot & Audio playback)

    How about:-
    DSi 'Tilt' (due to the Motion sensor)
    DSi FF (due to 'Force Feedback')
    DSigra (combo of DSi and the NVIDIA Tegra graphic chip that might be used)

    Actually, Nintendo always released codenames on its own (GBA Micro - Oxygen, DS - Nitro, Wii - Revolution, and the list goes on), so it's not like they're going to listen to us, nor we're gonna influence them.

    So let's not add confusion, and let's just wait for the official codename to get leaked.

    It will most likely not have 2 screens so calling it DS2 or DSixx is extremely counter intuitive.
