So it will have a built in wireless modem sweet, no game system handheld or otherwise as of today does not have this and the free 3G access is even better, I can pay $500-$900 for a gaming system with that kind of epic win.

Amazon Kindle has free 3G and so does the B&N Nook. They're both under $250, so it's safe to say that next DS may cost around that much. Of course E-Ink screen would be pretty expensive.

Next week I'll leak info of the true successor to the DS which I'll call it Nintendo DSi3g and I'll make some bad art for it as well as make up specs. I have insider information but I wont say who from.

And that is how to increase site traffic.

Wtf Thordrian, how do you do it?

But on topic, I think this is more possible as gaming handhelds are shifting towards 3G networks, HD, etc.

I don't think this would happen... if this were to get hacked you could prolly use it to tether devices to it. So lets say maybe thousands of people do this and idk use it to play xbox live.. that's a lot of bandwidth, that costs money and its all coming out of Nintendo's pocket if they were to do this it certainly would not be free. "If" it is free it will be shit... that is if this is true.

they'll prolly give you 5 hours free 3g access and then charge your ass for it

I highly doubt it, but if there is free 3G the system will security to the point of unhackability because if it does get hacked people will use the 3G for the PSPgo, PSP2, or a Wi-Fi enabled MP3 player.

Free? you say free? free access or free 3G hardware?

You will need to insert a SIM Card to use 3G, AFAIK. So DSi phone. haha

Why would you need a SIM card? Verizon has 3G and doesn't have SIM cards...
