    This isn't really news, and while it's a nice design it has no speakers. And I shall not tolerate a next-gen DS with no analog stick, or at least a crappy nub like the PSP. [​IMG]

    "It would be placed on top of a black anodized aluminum surface, micro-perforated so you can listen to the speakers and use the microphone."

    I think they we're mostly just upgrading features, also I'd imagine it's harder to close a ds with a nubbin sticking out.

    Probably, but there are ways. Sure I don't know what they ways are, but top notch hardware designers could probably figure something out. [​IMG]

    wtf did they do to the screens? the top one looks like it has mad tearing, and the bottom one looks folded '~'

    And I'm sure they'd have both screens the same size, it just looks stupid having them different

    Anyway, awesome design, but the best part is the bigger screen and updated specs. If this was real, I would have gotten one ASAP [​IMG]

    Whats with the "pause" button anyway? What happened to the "select" button and doesn't the "start button" already doubles back as a "pause" button?

    Anyway, looks not bad.

    Looks shiny and arseholish (yes I said arseholish).
    I really don't think Nintendo will make a new DS, I think they will make an entirely new handheld, and drop the DS name.

    I'd like to see a analogue stick (ala PSP) and it can easily be done.

    On the top screen just have two circular "crater" like areas that could include the speaker holes which fold over and sit just on top of the nub when the DS is folded.

    Oh and Nintendo, please PLEASE bring back clicky buttons like the orignal DS or GBA SP.

    Agreed about the different size screens. Not only does it look stupid, but it makes games which have gameplay across both screens awkward as the edges of the screens don't line up

    Yeah, right. Except that it looks like crap and is no improvement over the old design at all. In other words, that's a bad, unimaginative designers wet dream of the new DS.

    Those screens are completely out of proportion!

    I dunno, they were pretty bad. I like the DS Lite's buttons.

    The PSP's analogue stick is also terrible. It's so uncomfortable to use. The next DS needs a big fat xbox360 analogue stick or two. Not sure how they'd make that portable though [​IMG]

    That's just a DS Lite with bigger screens.. not very creative..
    I'm also hopping for an analogue stick.. but, after the Wii, you can't really tell what Nintendo will do next.. I doubt they'll just make a bigger screen and better graphics for the next DS..

    That is only wet dream of some psp & ds fan(boy?)

    If new ds would look like that i would never buy it, rather buy psp (if i've ever would want to buy something new).

    I think it will be Wii based design.
    Imagine how nunchuck analog will adapt to DS.
