    Design your ideal portable game console

    Yesterday's Competition Winner: religion! Congratulations ShadowXP, err.. I mean 'religion'! The staff decided that your review of Nervous Brickdown for Nintendo DS stood out from the crowd! A fantastically written review. He wins an EZ 3in1!

    [​IMG] Today's competition

    Close your eyes. Picture your ideal portable game console limited only by your imagination. Nothing is impossible here, nothing is too expensive and it can be as crazy as you like - as long as its portable!

    Draw a mockup of your dream handheld (photoshop/photo/hand drawing etc. is fine), write a little information about it and post! The winning entry will be picked for creativity, ingenuity and awesomness. Pure awesomness! We will not be picking the prettiest photoshop job, so just have a go!

    So get thinking and let us see your ideal mockup!

    [​IMG] How to enter?
    Please follow these instructions very carefully! We will not accept your entry if you fail to comply with all the instructions.

    To enter, simply send an email to xmas@gbatemp.net with your entry.. You may also show everyone your entry on the forums if you so wish, but remember to send the e-mail too otherwise you won't be entered in the contest!

    [​IMG] Winners & prizes
    We will reveal the winner and the prize for this competition tomorrow, when the next competition is announced!

    You said no videos in the reviews.. Thats kind of unfair because you said failure to comply with these rules will result in a disqualification..

    We meant the reviews must be written, and not spoken. No Video Reviews. Adding a gameplay video isn't much different from adding screenshots, and besides, the images/videos of gameplay had absolutely no effect on the judging.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding!

    Congrats religion.

    Curious though, why is ShadowXP crossed out? Is he/she the original winner? If so, why the change?

    I was tempted to take out the buttons, but then I remembered how much the iPhone sucks as a gaming platform.

    INTRODUCING THE DSs

    Introducing the DS Slim (DSs). Gone is the bulky old clamshell design, and in is the slim candy bar style. Featuring a chrome, rounded edge and one large touchscreen, the DSs is sure to impress anyone who sees it!


    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Gyroscope: Stolen from the Wii Remote, the DSs now features movement tracking. Shake hands with your Nintendog, or try and reach the goal in Kirby's Tilt 'n' Tumble 2, the gyroscope brings all the fun of the Wii on the road.

    Touch Screen: Instead of two screens, the DSs features only one screen, all of it touch! Compatible with all DS games, the screen is split in half for compatibility. With new DSs games, the system can be turned sideways to play games that require touch only to utalize the entire screen. Many games can switch from touch controlled to button controlled depending on the orentation.

    Media Function: With 4, 6, or 12GB of internal storage, the DSs is the perfect travel companion. Using the included software, convert all your favourite movies, pictures and audio files to be played on the road.

    WiFi & User Created Games: With the new DSsWare, download, create, and share your home made games with friends around the globe. Each DSs comes with built in software to create your own microgames, which can be uploaded and downloaded for free. Multiplayer gameplay is even easier now with DSs codes. Just swap your console code with your friends, and in no time you will be racing in F-Zero DSs, or visiting new towns in Animal Crossing: Wide Open Spaces. Browse the internet with the built in Opera browser from any WiFi hotspot, including flash support.

    Games: The DSs is all about games. Featuring graphics on par with the Game Cube, portable gaming has never been as beautiful. Featuring an all-star lineup of launch games including Metroid Dread, Pokemon: The Orange Islands, Super Mario 128, Pikmin DSs, and Wario Ware: Touch and Twist, the DSs is sure to please everyone from day one. Not only will there be new DSs games, but you will have access to all your favourite Nintendo classic games through the DSs WiFi Shop. Pick from any game, from any console (excluding Wii), and any handheld, all available at launch. Further down the road, 3rd party classics from Sega will be available for download. Other companies will be available at later dates.

    Available April 21st, 2011, the DSs is sure to revolutionize the way portable games are played.

    Additional Information:
    -Left and Right shoulder buttons have been moved to the back of the system to be used with the index fingers.
    -Power button is located on the top of the DSs - hold it down for 3 seconds to be prompted if you wish to turn the system off
    -Volume button is located on the side of the system


    Warning: Spoilers inside!
