    Well it's time to get rid of old ds, when all these millions of new ds rumours are flying around.

    no buttons me thinks, completely touch screen for DS2. or glove mice xD. new ds keep buttons but better sound and bigger screen will do. both screens touch... save it for the ds2 me thinks.

    Yup its old stuff. And I do not see why people are always "we need a bigger screen" The bigger it is the less portable and less likely you can store it in your pocket. Defeating the purpose of it being a handheld game system

    I'd go for the screen that's NDS sized, and Micro resolution....what a potential..Imagine that picture and quality..

    the rumor that it has widescreen was already here when the rumor was about the double touch screen thingy. I remember that it said "wider screens"

    The article doesn't even use that image at all.

    I do reckon we could be in for a follow up next year, I'd doubt we'd see it announced until after May and we won't even see it released for a year. The reason for me thinking that there will be a new handheld is mainly due to the lack of games Nintendo themselves are doing for the DS. Here are the ones we know are coming out:

    Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia
    Rhythm Heaven
    DS Air (listing from May confirms that its still coming out)
    Make 10: A Journey of Numbers
    Kirby Super Star Ultra
    Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir
    ASH
    Hercules (only a listing is confirmed for Europe)
    Pokemon Platinum Version
    Kousoku Card Battle Card Hero

    Which of them are first party titles? None of them. We know that they are starting on NSMB2. So either A. Nintendo don't think it needs any more games to sell the DS or B. They're keeping them for the follow up.

    Don't you mean weekly? =P Anymore, that's how it's going...

    And of course, people will be all "OMG I WAS RIGHT! ...wait, I was right? I MEAN I WAS RIGHT YEAAAAAAAAH!!" when a new DS IS revealed. If ever.

    Are they talking about a all new DS or so?
    Because It seems very unlikely to make such big changes for only a redone design

    Here is a rumor for you you can actually trust: There won't be an all-new DS in April 2009.

    If Nintendo releases a new DS model in April 2009, it won't have wide-screens. It doesn't make sense and it still won't make sense no matter who says it's gonna happen, be it IGN or Jesus himself.

    i am so going to laugh if they do infact release the succesor to the DS and it does have wider screens [​IMG]

    on topic: i dont think they will but im not going to say anything as recently i something that was rumor and i totally wrote off as incorrect turned out to be announced yesterday 1 week before opening day [​IMG]

    so i say guilty of being a false rumor until proven true
