    I'm sure Nintendo are always working on a redesign. Doesnt mean its coming out anytime soon though.

    *Facepalm* I'm gonna go ahead and assume it's false. Nintendo said they would not be pushing a new iteration anytime soon...

    I personally don't believe it's true. It could just be 'speculations' from the Nikkei magazine and not an actual announcement.

    Although I do believe a redesign is in the making.

    Im going to go ahead and assume that its true, given that the DS had 4 revisions, Nintendo has also released a "slider pad" which need worked into the new design of the 3DS, and the fact that Nintendo rumored this back in November.

    When these new 3DSs drop, ill start saving the monies.

    >thinner design

    It's already pretty thin, how much more does it need to be until you can't even hold the console without getting hand cramps?

    And a second circle pad?

    The original is already somewhat as thin as the DS Lite.

    I agree. I don't think it's going to be comfortable if it gets any slimmer.

    So, they want to have 2006 sales again.
    3DS lite + Animal Crossing + Pokémon = 600k sales the christmas week?

    Agreed. It only makes sense for a redesign. Too many people, like myself are waiting before they purchase for just this reason. I was the same with the DS. My first and only is the DS Lite.

    I don't think they'd do that for a simple revision.

    Besides, this is not officially announced by Nintendo plus they did say we're not going to see a redesign for a while.

    I reckon a 3DSXL is a little more likely at this point. Plenty of room for an extra cirlce pad.

    To be honest, I'll be pretty mad if a 3DS Lite comes out. I just got my 3DS, so now I wasted my money on a product that was just upgraded. Maybe Nintendo will offer a service to people who just bought the 3DS and allow them to send it in for a new 3DS. I'm rambling, but still, it angers me...

    I totally agree with this, with the exception of the sticks. I'm sure that the battery and speed of the system would be enhanced, but I'm not sure about the cameras. I would appreciate an added quality in pictures, since the megapixel count is pretty low.
