    First off these aren't my pictures. They were originally taken and posted by Cone on the AssemblerGames forum. I wasn't sure how many here read there so thought I'd share them here.

    I'm really glad they moved the Start and Select buttons, otherwise they look pretty cool. I really like the shoulder buttons.

    Those look neat!
    I actually prefer them over the original phat, as they're more colorful (but those right and left buttons would have to go!)

    I like these more than the phat DS. I like the NDSL a lot more.

    Uh, buddy, these pictures are PROTOTYPE DS's, before the DS Phat actually came out.

    And there is no "new DS" announced anyways, or any features it will/will not have.

    Who feels like the douche now? [​IMG] lol jk

    I wasn't too sure if anyone else read there or not. It's a great site for retro stuff but you don't normally see alot of DS stuff posted there.

    Nintendo never keeps their prototype names.. Ultra 64, Nintendo Dolphin (Game Cube).. the DS was initially called the "Game Boy Nitro" [​IMG]

    Without gameboy. Anyway those names are still used in product codes.
    Es. DS Phat = NTR-001 (if i remember it right)
    GC = DOL-001
    and so on, and so on.

    I am still expecting Nintendo to release Wii in alternative colours, at some point.

    Almost all nintendo protos look bad. When a Proto Ultra 64 controller leaked it looked weird, the one who had it said it was hand made, off balance and with all the buttons without the names on them. Also on the 'net there is a cartridge based GC that was used for development purposes along with the NR reader (dev GC, but using minidvds instead). The cartridge one looks horrible imo.

    If wii were to come in colors...it'd be great!
    I quite like the form of the handheld consoles...
    It's nice to look back at what they have in mind..(comparing with what they delivered now..)
