    Nintendo are always working on new hardware, they say this all the time.

    I do think we'll have "something" new this year though.

    New hardware could also mean "a new wiimote add-on". I wouldn't expect too much from it...

    Console manufacturers start working on new hardware as soon as they release the current one, otherwise they don't have enough time to design a good new one

    The DSi XL wasn't even released though. [​IMG] Or maybe they mean a different console/handheld altogether. Or it could just be an accessory as tj_cool said. I hope its a console though.

    The Gameboy Micro (a GBA revision) was released a year after the DS.

    Microsoft worked on Windows 8 even before Windows 7 was made.
    You got to think one step ahead... Or for Microsoft, one step backwards.

    Can't really think it's going to be anything other than a Wii accessory of some sort.

    This.

    I really don't think it's going to be something big, but if it is, I hope it's a new handheld, with NEW features, not another revision of the DS. I wouldn't care if it's a console, but I'd prefer a handheld, mainly because they're cheaper, and of course they're portable.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see another letdown. But wasn't Miyamoto talking about a DS/DSi motion sensor earlier this year? It's probably that. They just released the DSi/XL/XX whatever. So I'm pretty sure that their new releases will be all DSi accessories.

    They're probably making the Wii Diabetes Glucose meter.

    He was saying it was originally implemented on the first DS. They wouldn't do this, other than prettier graphics they'd like to keep a gimmick aside for the more casual gamer out there.

    I really hope that it's the new DS revision. I thought I heard something about Nintendo working with Nivida?

    Doesn't Nintendo usually work on two systems at a time these days? A handheld and a console?
