    Fake, just looks like parts of a photoshopped Wiimote with two screens.

    Why would Nintendo put more money into making another model of the Nintendo DS when they could put money into a completely different hand held system? By the time this "compact" version of the DS was to come out, the Nintendo DS would be outdated. I certainly hope that Nintendo is working on something for next gen.

    I don't believe Nintendo is, why would it at this rate? It can barely keep up with the current demand for the Nintendo DS at it is. Why release a new console when the current one is still at its peak? Wouldn't make to much sense to release and advertise another console, getting license deals with game developers and go through all that trouble for a new system when the DS is still flying off the shelves.

    It's a fake there is to little room for the hardware of the top screen.
    It looks nice but I'd rather doubt that this is a fake.

    What I am saying is, if Nintendo was to come out with that compact DS then the DS lite would start slowing down by the time the compact DS made it's appearance... When in 5 years or whatever they could come out with a new hand held console. I wasn't saying I think Nintendo should come out with a new hand held console right now. That would be foolish.

    I'd rather have my buttons protected from the shell, than have them exposed like that anyway.

    Not to mention that this video is nothing new, its over a ear old. I remember seeing it ages ago. Also its not a "fake" but more of a concept design. I'm not 100% sure if Nintendo made it or a fan, but all it was, was a concept design of a possible Nintendo DS Micro, based in part on the Gameboy Advance Micro. Though since the video itself is pretty old, either it was fan made or it never stuck with Nintendo.

    Nintendo had few design concepts that "leaked" (or were officially released, I don't know)..There were few pictures, and this concept was among them..They were discussed many times, and it is known that all of it was fake (meaning, it'll never be made, it was more of an idea for redesign)..
    So this video isn't "real" too..

    And about concept..it is a great idea to make it that small, but think about opening this 5 times a day and 360 times a year..You think it wouldn't become loose?! There are too many moving parts..however, concept is great (but not dooable)..

    Agreed, people are complaining now about cracked and broken hinges, just about all the things that can go wrong with this. The sliding motion when it opens, the very thin flip top LCD screen with the thin hinge and everything else. What if someone opens it a bit to fast or a little to hard? Just so many things could go wrong with it.
