    Checkmate. I knew it. It probably was just Nintendo covering things up

    Source (Yes, It's Kotaku)

    Nobody's dicking around now.

    Looks like Iwata slipped up and it's coming to light in better detail.

    OMG! It turns out that Nintendo has actually been developing the next system that we all knew they had already started developing even before the ds came out!!!

    Seriously, you guys do know that all game companies start developing the next gen system before this gen's system hits the market, right? The development cycle for these things is not short.

    Anyhow, I'm surprised they haven't come out with a new handheld already. The GBA only lasted three years before the DS came out.

    This newspaper is simply adding hype. I don't know about Japan, but some newspaper companies in the US are wrong on some of their stuff. Sometimes their biased, etc. We won't know until E3...hopefully.

    We all know that Nintendo likes to keep announcements under wraps until they are ready to tell people themselves. Iwata screwed up and Ninty is now saying that wasn't what was said simply because they don't want to lose their precious sales on the current DS's if the news becomes widespread. Remember how they denied rumors of the original DS until THEY felt like announcing it? Same deal here.

    I won't even get into that whole "3rd pillar" malarkey.

    In short, Ninty is lying, the newspaper is likely correct.

    It's Nintendo of America that denied it. Iwata is the almighty force of Nintendo, of course he'd know better than them. NoA doesn't want to compromise the sales of current DSes/DSi's. Of course they would deny a new system was coming. It would kill their sales. If everyone knew a DS2 was coming (or whatever the new system is called), almost no one would buy a DS/DSi. Bad business. It's all spin to squeeze the most money out of the consumer.

    I don't know why anyone thought they could have misinterpreted such specific information such as "DS successor will have motion sensing and high resolution screens"... >_>

    Hmm i wonder what to do here.... oh yea, Not give a CRAP. Unless the Iwata and the magazine staff are both 20 year old lesbians and they are going to settle it by mud-wrestling its really not a big deal.

    Ok, I realise you are correct in what you are saying. But what would have been Saga's next gen console if they never lost all their money on the Dreamcast (Oh, but the Dreamcast was amazing!).

    I have no idea, but Sega had a very strong arcade game business, and a partnership with Hitachi to develop the SH-X line of processors, so I'd guess it would have been based around those. Regardless, the way Sega (especially Sega of America; Tom Kalinske had been running that company into the ground for years) were doing things, if the Dreamcast hadn't been their last system the next one surely would have.

    the funny thing is tht such an experienced person actually slipped up... gotta mind yer tongue actually
    it wouldnt hurt the sales very much if they announced another DS... it just shows tht their strategy of releasing "unnecessary" DS's is useless
