Music and pics coming to next-gen Nintendo DS
Handheld console fans drool
Nintendo has developed a new, feature-laden DS handheld console, according to a Japanese newspaper.
A report by Nikki Net stated that the latest model will sport an internal camera, music player and a larger screen. Improved wireless functionality was also mentioned.
A reference was made to using the console’s camera to play games, and there’s a possibility that a memory card slot will also be included for moving data between the handheld device and, say, the Wii.
The latest model hasn’t received a name yet, but the report also mentioned that Nintendo may unleash the new DS in Japan sometime before Christmas. It’s worth noting that the company already has a press conference scheduled for 2 October – the same day that Nokia’s Tube could be unveiled on.
It’s thought that the new DS will cost somewhere in the region of ¥20,000 (£105/$188/€130). A DS Lite already costs about ¥17,000 (£89/$160/€112) in Japan, suggesting the new version will be a 'premium' model.
I was going to complain about "the same day that Nokia’s Tube could be unveiled on" but thought that might be too pedantic. Glad I wasn't the only one who thought it stuck out sore thumb like a.
And what does the PSP want...
....correct to sell anything like the quantity of the DS manages, crikey i'm sure it'd be happy with 50% wouldn't it?
RE: I WANT TO BE A PSP
my son's psp doesn't have a camera on. And you could get a plug in camera for the original gameboy. So who's copying who again?
Agreed, i'm betting there's not many people who're on the ol' wireless out there now (at least people in the know about such things, from the point of view of war drivers these people are giving a free ride away, gawd bless 'em) who still use WEP and open encryption. i've got my SSID hidden and want to keep it that way, but still want to play the likes of Race Driver Grid et al with the world at large...
I like how fake Mark managed to easily predict once again what Mark was going to say.
Nothing changes in fanboy world.
