    [Title + Description ^] Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    Question: Has Nintendo stopped making DS games? Because from what I see HERE, is that I see the Game List has stopped (the List of Games that are Coming Soon). Some months ago, I still remembered seeing the page about 20 + pages long and now it's stopping at 4 pages long. Are they going to stop making Nintendo DS games in 2010?

    Something tells me Nintendo wouldn't stop making games for their best-seller handheld. Not to mention, they released a new revision last month.

    Yeah..that was what I was thinking. I couldn't believe it though. I heard that Nintendo was going to release some kind of updated DSi? So I thought "Why would Nintendo stop making games right after an Updated Console?"

    I can't see them stop making games for the DS even when they release their new handheld. It'll probably be gradually phased out over time after that, like the GBA.

    There is less than a 0% chance that they would stop making games.

    Er, and to make things clear...Nintendo themselves don't often make the games.

    They just released The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. Gamestop is not really reliable when it comes to these things. You'd be better off checking Nintendo's game guide regularly.

    They're not gonna stop anytime soon. People out there are still buying DS's, unlike the GBA.

    They ran out of ideas a long time ago.

    That bloody mess you see is the remains of original ideas after having been beaten to death.

    We wouldn't have over 4000 titles released for the DS, if no one was making that Imagine, My Pet, Petz fricking sludge. I mean count up all the titles YOU consider as having been a good reason to buy the DS. Good luck getting past 50 titles. Not that 50 titles is a small list.

    I think its a little higher than 50 titles, considering the ds has more than 50 great rpgs alone.

    Of course not... I see your point but this question is kinda... dumb. Nintendo doesnt make a lot of games for DS, but still they do. And pretty good ones. Actually, every game they do for DS is great. IMO.

    Are you saying my question is dumb? My question is just a little out of curiosity.

    i think that Nintendo should really (in order to make more money, not for the joy of the customers) start to develop another handheld that also has 2 screen that also has another slot at the top and the DS slot at the bottom like what they did for the GBA. This would help ease away piracy. They are, at the moment, not releasing many cart games because they want to focus on the downloadable game aspect and create games for DSiWare and WiiWare because these are much harder for people to pirate and would give them more money [​IMG]

    That's a good idea...but I don't think they're gonna make that kind of Handheld yet. They probably ARE making more DSi games for the DSi.

    yeah, the problem with that is that most people still have a DS Lite or DS Phat and so can't spend ample amounts of money on downloadable games. If all Nintendo DS owners had a DSi then Spirit Tracks may well have been a downloadable release and not a cart release

    Yes that is what I am saying. Do you really think Nintendo will stop to make games one day???
    Just think back what they did this year. I think, then, your answer will be very clear!
