    NEW DS CONSOLE (called the DSI ) HAS BEEN UNVEILED BY NINTENDO TODAY !!!

    New DS 'unveiled tomorrow'
    Another source has claimed that an updated Nintendo DS, complete with camera and MP3 player functions, will be unveiled tomorrow.

    According MCV's "impeccable" source in Japan, Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata will unveil the redesigned handheld at 5am UK time tomorrow morning.

    The site claims that while little is known about the machine's exact extra functions, it will have the "multimedia functions" claimed in our earlier report from a Japanese paper.

    It's thought that Nintendo hopes to claim back sales lost to the PSP in Japan, where Sony's handheld is gaining momentum.

    The launch date and price is unknown, but the earlier report claimed it'd be almost nail-on £99.

    We can't believe Nintendo's going to make us buy another handheld revision. We'll try our best to resist importing it...

    lighter lite - bigger screen - camera and mp3 + mp4 player etc etc

    there have always been loads of rumours about a new handheld from Nintendo.
    This definitely wouldnt be the first "new" rumour before the disclosure of a new updated version!

    lets wait and see

    Nooo, don't want a DS SP with better everything, probably dis-able flashcards.

    You could be right !!!

    "Other features such as system updates could also easily be offered via download, similar to PSP's firmware updates. And that could make it easier for Nintendo to stamp out its evil, relentless nemesis: game piracy."

    Hopefully the normal DS's will finally start coming down in price a bit now.

    so how do people play guitar hero on this lol

    you cant :oops:

    Um, it DOESN'T have a 3MP camera (despite some incorrect reports you may have read).

    It has either one or two 0.3MP cameras.

    It also doesn't have a GBA slot any more (so you can't play GBA games or Guitar Hero, or use a rumble pack), plus it has a shorter battery life than the DS-Lite

    Also, I believe you won't be able to use flash-carts on it ?

    On the other hand, it has a music player (AAC format only, it won't play mp3's - I can play mp3's on my phone, i-pod & DS-Lite with flash card).
    It also has a very poor quality camera (anyone with a reasonably modern mobile phone - expensive or not - will already have a better quality camera).

    Me ? I'll stick with my DS Lite......
