    Will they make the screen brighter like the third iteration of the GBA?

    I can see it now.

    It could be a DS Micro, which would be pretty kickass.

    I don't see a reason for a new DS model.. there's nothing left to do on the DS lite :/

    Extend battery life, re-texture the surfaces to make them more durable, include USB charge cables with them, as standard, fix the sound, fix the d-pad ...

    I can't see Nintendo going for that, as it would either be limited to multimedia playback, or only new game would be able to make use of it.

    the micro is a cool idea, but i'd like bigger screens, like in the concept shot that was floating on the shoutbox the other day

    Bigger screens = new games only/old games stay same size with borders or new games only/old games get stretched

    Only new games would be able to use it, and people with older DS models wouldn't be able to play the games.. :/
    Nintendo can't do much on the internal hardware, unless it's a totally new console (which I doubt), the changes will be mostly aesthetical.. like the DS lite was..

    Which would be enough to every person in Japan to buy a new DS, again [​IMG]

    I hope this is true. Maybe it's a DS with dual touchscreen.

    It is sort of like a tech show, to show what is being designed, what is in the making, and a good place to reveal nice shiny things.
