http://news.idealo.co.uk/news/4141/nintend...llins-deal.html Nintendo will announce today plans to turn the Nintendo Ds into a digital reader with help from the publisher HarperCollins . The world-renowned handheld games console that has sold 2 million units in Britain alone will launch the 100 classic books on one game card available for around £20. The card will contain classic books from authors such as Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and Jane Austin. The idea is to get people reading books that they would not usually buy, if the classic books card is a success Nintendo may broaden the selection available in the future. Although Nintendo isn’t offering as many choices as other readers on the market like Sony’s reader, which is able to download thousands of books from the Waterstones website, the Nintendo DS is just under £100 less expensive. The Nintendo Ds will let you flick through pages buy using the touch screen so it’s very user friendly a Nintendo executive mentioned: “When you go on holiday, or if you’re a commuter, lugging around a big paper book can be a bit of an inconvenience, now you’ve got this whole library you’re taking with you.” The 100 classic book collection will be released on December 26, it’s Nintendo’s attempt at gaining a broader audience for the DS, Nintendo seem to realise the potential the DS has for everyday life being compact enough to fit in a pocket, not only can you train your brain daily on the console, you can even get cookery guides along with some great fun games such as the legendary Mario Kart.
