    Even better, small handhelds are awesome, unless they're too small for my hands of course D:

    And analog nubs sound nice too, they're more precise than buttons, although touch screen control is even more precise.

    It needs proper sticks/nubs for 3D games, on the DS the d-pad wasn't good enough for 3D control.

    But the touch screen was, it was used perfectly in FF3, FF4 borked it again though.

    I'm talking real 3D like Mario 64DS, using the touchscreen on that was bad and it also ruined Rayman 2 DS.

    It better still have a touch screen otherwise that would be a bad move for Ninty.

    Being backwards compatible you'd think it would have at least one.

    So, headtracking? That's what the 3D is then?

    Seems it works just like Project Natal, tracks your head with predictions because of multiple or bubble camera lens. [​IMG] Sounds sexy.

    Here's any idea - Perhaps the 'd-pad' & x/y/a/b/ buttons are being replaced with an analog controllers ??

    There'll still be a d-pad and buttons, especially seeing Nintendo likes to do classic style games. Also they will most likely have Virtual Console on there for handheld games...well I hope.

    If it's suppose to be backward compatible, they would have to have some sort of d-pad/button configuration. I'm just hoping they are smart enough to have a strong lineup with the launch. I'm hoping that will also be announced at E3 although more likely at TGS. This means a Zelda/Mario game or both.

    5th gen Pokemon game will be a launch title, mark my words.

    Also I hope it is so the staff here won't have to deal with the shit because a DS version will have AP.
