don't worry, this isn't another thread showing concept photos lol. i'm just wondering, as evident with all their previous handhelds, once they release a new handheld, 1 or 2 years later there's gonna be a "lite" version. so is there any point of getting it? wouldn't it be better just to wait for the lite? (note i'm not a die hard nintendo fan that would get both lol)

Hmm, I'm wondering will Nintendo go the gimmicky/innovative route again like they did with the DS/Wii, or will they just upgrade the hardware?

Maybe they'll go single-screen again. A thing's for certain, it's going to have a Touchscreen

Otherwise they're simply gonna remain on the dual-screen setting and add touch screen functionality to the upper screen too.

Another probable thing is motion sensing, because everyone loves to WAGGLE WAGGLE WAGGLE things while playing

Buttons are probably gonna stay. Hardcore gamers NEED buttons, and making a handheld system without them is pretty risky, IMHO.

Obviously add upgraded hardware to all this

If the next handheld from Nintendo has waggle, or no physical buttons, then I'll be leaving the Nintendo handheld boat :/

well, i can't say i actually want something completely new, because if they do give us something like that, it will only turn into a gimmick.

i just want it to be similar to the DS, maybe with 1 or 2 cool new features, and a hell of a lot more powerful.
and it should be able to do online PROPERLY, because DS and Wii's online are both retarded (and slow as fuck).

The next Nintendo hand-held should be a portable GameCube.
And I'd be pretty disappointed in Nintendo if it doesn't have almost enough power as a GC..
But then again, we'd have a portable Wii in terms of graphics

Just imagine if the next handheld has waggle, all the shit that is plaguing the Wii right now would plague the next handheld too.

I was just kidding when I said that the new handheld would be a WAGGLE-fest.

Remember that a handheld's screen is contained in it. So if you would've to waggle a lot, you would end up not understanding what is going on the screen

Most probably it'll have motion sensing, but in a limited way.

I'd recommend going for the 'Smaller Handheld' as it will make the 'Handheld' look like crap and the 'Smaller Handheld with new features' will probably come out towards the end of the system's lifespan
