    This is kind of like a character battle for gamefaqs or anime boards. Basically you say +1 for features you want, and -1 for features you don't want in the new 3DS. Explaining why you added to or subtracted from something would be nice also.

    List:
    [15] GB/GBC/GBA/SNES/Other Emulation via Virtual Console
    [10] Analog Stick(s)
    [10] Video Recording w/ Cameras
    [8] Better Camera Quality
    [7] Better Media Support (mp3, flv, real aac, etc.)
    [8] Better Screen Resolution
    [5] Bigger NAND/Hard drive/Internal Memory
    [4] Flash Support (via tah intarweb)
    [4] Multi-touch Touchscreen
    [3] Motion Controls
    [3] No Head Tracking to Produce 3D
    [3] Playing DSiWare off SD Card
    [3] TV Output
    [2] Store/Save Save Files on NAND/Hard Drive/Internal Memory
    [1] Better Web Browser
    [0] 3D
    [0] 3G Support
    [0] Better Microphone
    [-2] 2 Touch Screens

    So I'll start off:
    +1 Video Capturing with cameras
    +1 Better camera quality
    +1 GBA emulation via Virtual Console
    +1 3G Sim Card Support
    +1 Playing DSiWare off of SD card
    -1 2 Touch Screens
    -1 Motion Controls

    EDIT: Important new rule, you can only vote for a feature once. So if you already voted for video recording in 1 post you can't vote for it again in another post. You can, however, vote for different features or request new features in a new post.

    Also, please no features that obviously won't come like "+1 Piracy", and also no features that were already in the DSi because it's already very likely that those will also be included.

    I will take your -1 to 2 touch screens and raise you a +1

    If that makes no sense

    [+1] 2 Touch screens
    [+1] 3G Support
    [+1] Gba Emulation

    Well technically it'd go from -1 to 0. Features can be 0, it's just they're normally not shown if they're 0 (as in no one has voted for them before, but if they were +'ed or -'ed too much they just stay on the list).

    [+1] GBA Emulation
    [+1] Better Camera Quality
    [+1] Joystick
    [-1] 3G Sim Card Support
    [-1] Dual Touch-Screens

    I doubt it will have 3G support. It's a handheld gaming device, not a cell-phone. Two touch-screens would raise the cost significantly.

    +1 Video Capturing with cameras (simple software feature, no reason not to have it)
    +1 Better camera quality
    +1 GBA emulation via Virtual Console
    -1 3G Sim Card Support (unless there's gonna be a really good web browser for it)
    -1 Playing DSiWare off of SD card (make that a MicroSD and we're talking...A slot for regular SD cards is a huge waste of space)
    +1 2 Touch Screens
    +1 Motion Controls (if you count head-tracking as a kind of motion control, this one's already for certain)
    +1 Analog-stick (preferably two)
    +1 actual 3D displays as opposed to rumoured head-tracking trickery

    I don't know about GBA emulation. The console's not that old yet. Rather, my guess is

    [+1] Gameboy/ Gameboy Color Virtual Console
    [+1] 3G awesomeness (I remember a snippet of news talking about Nintendo's interest in this)
    [+1] MP3 support (or AAC files in actual AAC format, at the very least)
    [+1] It had better have DSiWare support
    [+1] Prints Money

    No the 3DS does not need to be a cell phone. Two touch screens is excessive and would be hard to use in my opinion. I do want motion controls however, look how well that worked out for the iPod Touch.

    To the people who are confused about the 0. It's because it was originally -1, then someone else bumped it up 1 making it a 0 which means nothing besides that fact that not as many people want the feature.

    Gimme a couple minutes to tally up the new score.

    EDIT:

    New list,

    +1 GB/GBC/GBA/SNES/Other Emulation via Virtual Console
    +1 Video Recording w/ Cameras
    +1 Analog Stick(s)
    +1 Better Screen Resolution
    +1 Better Media Support (mp3, flv, real aac, etc.)
    +1 Bigger NAND/Hard drive/Internal Memory
    +1 Multi-touch Touchscreen
    +1 No Head Tracking to Produce 3D
    +1 3D (it IS the 3DS!)

    -1 Better Camera Quality - with all the stuff they're gonna put into this, the last thing we need is more stuff that makes it expensive
    -1 Motion Controls - more gimmicks? no thanks, 3D is enough. Hopefully it won't be used much
    -1 Better Microphone - again, pointless expenses
    -1 3G Support - do I have to repeat myself? Besides it'd only be for online gaming. And Nintendo could release a separate accessory for that (one that connects with 3G, and sends internet signals like a router that the 3DS can use)

    +1 to following
    GB/GBC/GBA/SNES/Other Emulation via Virtual Console
    Analog Stick(s)
    Better Screen Resolution (duh)
    Better Media Support (mp3, flv, real aac, etc.)
    Bigger NAND/Hard drive/Internal Memory

    just -1 to 2 touch screens, it would probably end up being just stupid and make the top part bigger
