Im tired of ppl who see all these fake or real pictures of the new nintendo handheld and says time after time that DS Stands for Dual Screen so it therefore wont be possible that the new nintendo handheld only would have one screen.

first, DS was not Dual Screen officially by Nintendo from the beginning.
second, the name 3DS is just a working name just like Revolution (Wii)
third, it could equally stand for 3D(s) and not (3)DS, so the S could be any word that starts with an S.

so it can be two screens on nintendos next handheld but it could of course also only be one screen, i would be happy for one screen

Go back to GBA style handheld nintendo. Im sick of touch screen.

I'd like to see you come up with a system that could play DS titles without touch screen.

In fact that it can play older DS games, it will have two screens (or more?).

It could also have 1 bigger screen that can display both DS screens

Also, 3DS is a temporary name, so don't go too far finding what it stands for

"nobody knows what 3DS stands for"

Let me quickly debunk this, disregarding all other content in this thread by using one word.

Nintendo

Also, the name 3DS doesnt necesarilly mean that it WONT be a ds just because it doesnt contain 2 Ds.
It could just be a play on words, and that is how I view it.
Seeing as the DS is such a successful console already for Nintendo, why would they go ditch those ideas?
Keep in mind the current market they have.

I thought it was just a combination of 3D and DS :/

'3D' - The 3 Dimentional aspect of the console.

'DS' - The fact it has dual screens like it's predecessor.

    I don't like popcorn at all; bland taste, and it got ruined for me because of high school - the school cafeteria reeked of microwave popcorn for several days...utterly revolting, couldn't even enter the place it stunk so bad.
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Nah, for movies I'd rather get a bag of lollies instead of popcorn.

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Not lollipops; what Americans would call "candies" or just "candy" IDK. Before the pandemic, cinemas used to have buckets of different ones - sour cola, sour watermelon, and many others; I used to get a scoopful of two or three types into a paper bag to have throughout the movie.
