    That's an extremely old mock up design of what people thought the DS might look like when the announced it. Or at the least a variation thereof. [​IMG]

    There are rumours as always. Some say theres gonna be one with a digital tuner built it, one says there'll be a design thats lighter, has a better d-pad, without the GBA slot but with memory for storing possible GB-GBA VC games.

    All are lies, Nintendo are making way too much money and as a rep from them stated "Maybe when sales dip" or something like that.

    There was recent rumour tat Nintendo finished design on a third DS wit GBA slot removed and built-in drive. It also stated tat Nintendo is not plannin to announce it until sales dip which obviously wont happen anytime soon. [​IMG]

    Haha, build-in storage space. That's a laugh. This alone discredits the whole rumour. [​IMG]

    Whatever nintendo would released they wont make it easier to support piracy, so i think that maybe in new release would be more ram, but i doubt there would be build in memory.

    Why should it discredit? Maybe Nintendo is tryin to bring VC to DS? who knows [​IMG]
    Anyways most of the game sites had the news. Nintendo of course immediately denied the whole thing sayin it was all just rumours.

    Just my instict. I really doubt Virtual Console will ever hit DS. Don't get me wrong, I'd be happy if it would, but something just doesn't feel right there.
    Anyways, let's wait and see. [​IMG]

    And also the news said if they redesigned the DS there would be no GBA slot, just to make it smaller.

    Doesn't bother me, since the last time I touched a GBA game was a LOOONG time ago.

    Would be cool to have a Virtual Console in the DS, with Game Boy, Game Gear and Neo Geo Pocket games.. or even original titles.. I believe that downloads are the future of gaming.. with the success of the Wii VC, WiiWare and Xbox Live.. the next DS will most probably have some kind of Virtual Console..

    If they did it'll probably have like 16mb so you can only have a few games.

    I do suspect that Nintendo will do handheld games on VC but it'll be in some really stupid way, like you need to transfer the game with the Wii via Wi-Fi. If you turn off your DS you'll lose the game thus having to transfer the game AGAIN. But for games that save you can transfer the save over to the Wii for later use.

    Would Nintendo be that dumb?
