    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Whaaa? They started this in 2006, and this is all they came up with!?
    Still, at least we're seeing a lot of communication between parties in Nintendo, that can only be a good thing.

    Truth be told, they had to stay close to the DS framework, or it'd simply be a DS2 as opposed to a new model in the line.

    Though of course, I'd already guess they're working on the DS' successor as it is. =P

    They should have just not released the DSi, add more improvements, and call it DS2.

    Well, they won't be able to release a new DS2 until mid-late 2010. There are still tons of games in the works, that are going to take a LONG time to come out in US.
    I think the upcoming lineup like DQ9 and KH are going to be some of the final blockbuster DS games in NA. Then the DS2 will come out later. The DSi is to expand the system's life for another 1.5-2 years, because a lot of people are seeing the media/camera functions of the PSP/iPhone more attractive.

    I love using my Phat DS with the Ipod Homebrew MP3 player to blast away and hope of hearing my friend's music with his puny psp speakers.
    The louder the sound on my DS, the better.
