    Great another toy from Nintendo, that they probably won't be able to supply to the people who want them.

    What else can they do with it? Larger screen and faster cpu maybe? A built in camera would be cool but won't happen as everyone would be scared of kids being abused via them (think: Brasseye special)..

    The DSL is already a pretty much perfect portable gaming system, so without changing the form factor completely I can't really see what they can do.

    Will be watching with interest though

    built in browser would be nice

    and a micro SD slot for music/movies too

    with the price of flash memory it could rival the ipod nano

    that would be a good addition, ditch pictochat and replace it with a browser (and ramp up the internal RAM so you don't need a external RAM pak

    thatys what i started using mine for when i made the wise descision of buying an M3Real, such improvements, since homebrew games are sometimes better than the full funded bretheren, and you can carry lots 'o games around with you on 1 card and thats got to be good.

    Re: New Nintendo DS model rumoured for 2008

    thing is it wouldnt make much sense for them to add in built-in movie playin or a browser etc, as that means they can't sell you those products separately

    Hardware wise, I'd agree with Spud, it's practically perfect. If they could make some parts smaller to allower for a bigger battery, increased battery life would always go down well - though, the current battery is stellar in itself.

    Software wise, I'd love the option to go back to the main menu without having to power off and on.

    A more powerful DS would be good..
    THe graphics are ok but if they could get it up to or even better than the PSP graphics then the psp would be dead

    Re: New Nintendo DS model rumoured for 2008

    You also have to think about now nintendo market their products - they are gaming products for gamers, and don't pretend to be web browsers, movie players, music players and so on..They don't do the whole jack of all trade thing

    From a business pov is makes sense not to include them anyway - they don't need the extra gimmicks of movie/music playback to sell consoles - and thats not fanoyism, the sales speak for themselves on that one. Plus as i mentioned earlier it means that they (or 3rd parties who pay Nintendo a royalty) can upsell those features to those who want them
