    So what do you think?

    Personally I think they're going to have 2 screens, but I dont know if both will be touch screens. Could be nice...

    BTW, the question might seem silly/the answer obvious, but people are having lengthy discussions on IRC about it [​IMG]

    Seeing as it is being called "3DS", I'd probably say 2 screens. Two touch screens would be nice, but I don't know whether Ninty would do that... [​IMG]

    It's definitely going to have 2 screens and any idiot with half a brain stem could tell you the same. Whether it has two touch screens is not something anyone can really make a call on. It makes a little sense, but it would be nigh on impossible to make effective use of both screens.

    Hell!
    It will clearly have only one screen, anyone who disagrees is unimaginative and unintelligent.

    I remember reading that it WILL have 2 screens, however what's seperating both screens will be very small so they are almost connected giving the option for 2 or 1 screen gameplay, so having both of them touch screen is not a stretch...

    DS = Dual Screen

    3DS = 3D Dual Screen

    It's a play on words. Ever watch Wheel of Fortune? It's a Before&After. "Alexander the Greatful Dead" "Blaster Masterpiece Theatre" etc.

    Two touchscreens and that is based on the rumour that they can act as one big screen which I reckon will be slide-able so that the camera on some DSi Enhance games can be used...unless Nintendo won't support that in those games.

    Two screens that are placed closer together than the current DS. Would be nice if both had touch screen.

    I think it's just going to be 2 screens, one touch screen. I hope the screens do have a bigger resolution though.

    I would believe if not for the apparent GBA slot there, I don't think Ninty likes that kinda thing since they said "lets make it stick out" for DSL and "lot wats GBA" for teh DSi

    It's guaranteed to have at least 2 screens. It has DS compatibility, and I'm pretty sure Sony already copyrighted their flexible screens.
