    This just doesn't make sense. Isn't the DSi XXL the DS2? I'm not fully understanding this. Why would they release a new handheld if they JUST made the XXL/XL or however many X's are in it?

    I expect a $500 system and why should I really be caring anyway since I'll just get it at launch anyway.

    Well the DS has now been around for more than 5 years, and it'll be closer to 6 by the time E3 rolls around. I'd damn well expect the DS2 to be "dramatically more powerful", given how long the DS has been left on the market.

    How does this work? If they are hungry for money why build the XL at all? Then if they launched the DS2 so close to the DSi XL they would lose profits from the XL and people would buy DS2s. Possibly it could be vice versa. Anyways they wouldn't really kill off the DSi line so fast since well 1) Where's the DSi games and things that take advantage of the DSi? and 2) Its been a year think about it why so fast?

    I could forsee a prototype at E3. [​IMG]

    I have heard some rumors about it having a gfx "card or something" that is stronger than the wii's and can display in HD.
    Also it would have a build-in motion sensor.

    There is absolutely no way in hell that Nintendo are planning on selling a handheld for $500. I say $229 at launch and $299 for whatever bundle they will inevitably offer, and thats a max estimate It's more likely that it will be around $200 and that it will coincide with a DSi XL price drop. Nintendo's M.O since the NGC is to provide comparatively affordable priced consoles and games to garner a larger user-base.

    IMO, it would be released in 2 years or so.
    and yes it does for a fact has an accelerometer for motion sensing(the devs said it was a must).
    doubt it'll have HD, probably psp graphics (hopefully better).

    knowing nintendo, they wont sell it for higher than 350$ (probably)

    Why do people have to think this much the console will be released when it has to be.

    Anyone who thinks this will sell for more than $200 doesn't know a single thing about Nintendo. They have released only a single base console set retailing for more than $200 (the Wii for those keeping track). Every other (non-bundle) console has retailed for $199.99 or less with handhelds generally being cheaper. I agree this will likely be in the higher end of Nintendo's price bracket, but it will certainly not break the mold.

    The DSi XL is meant to extend the life of the DS software library not the DS hardware. With any new console there is an inevitable overlap in sales between the generations, and Nintendo has put forth massive efforts to develop the DS user-base and isn't going to just abandon them. Your all just being silly.

    DSi XL is one of the many variations of the same system (the DS). A DS 2 would be referring to an entirely new system (e.g. new hardware, better specifications, (possibly) entirely new design scheme)
