    Looks stupid, i dont want it if its going to stick out of a DS liek that... Maybe its just bigger to hold more hardware and they plan on increasing graphics or something?

    or an action replay...
    I think this will also be usable on a normal ds, it will only stick out.

    Wait, what? That must be for the DS2, otherwise I'd say Ninty's retarded. No one's going to buy something like that, unless it proves itself VERY worthy.

    Maybe its some special game. WarioWare Twisted had an abnormally shaped cartridge.

    That looks like a DSL in those pictures. I wouldn't think a successor since It doesn't seem like the big N would back away from the top shell camera quite yet. I'd say a tilt sensor but I think I've seen a (non-commercial) tilt sensor cart that was average size. If it's for this generation DS, don't expect graphics too great, there's only so much graphics you can get out of so few pixels... >

    It actually might have some extra hardware.

    Like i said, most likely hardware, either for graphics or making things run more smoothly, and possible motion sensoring like Danny said

    Perhaps some kind of rumble feature? I mean normally the rumble had to be bought separately so few people bothered (and it would be useful for dsi users (no slot-2)).

    To me it looks like Nintendo may be trying to squeeze better graphics or entertainment into one cartridge. It may possibly be Nintendo expanding into the entertainment industry, but then again....http://gbatemp.net/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif

    Could be a new vibration device, or an accelerometer accessory for DSlite. Maybe a GPS or cell phone attachment, but I highly doubt that. Who knows with Nintendo....digital TV reception?

    Probably just an accelerometer though, for whatever the game is going to be that requires it.....something like that.

    Since they removed the GBA port in the DSi, those kinds of add-on accessories will now have to run through the DS slot. Most people don't really care about vibration feedback, so an accelerometer (or tilt-sensor) would make sense.

    If there is extra hardware in the cart -- then out standard flash cards won't be able to play the roms....

    Maybe Nintendo wants to to render out flashcards useless on all new big name releases...

    There is no slot to plug in a GBA cart -- and do you really think Nintendo will release a cart that runs roms? Why would they shoot themselves in the foot like that...

    Whatever this is, it had better be damned awesome for it to have to stick out from the cartridge like some kind of Gameboy Camera or somethi---

    THAT'S IT!
