This isn't an upgrade, people. It's added motivation for people who don't have DSi's and have poor eyesight (?).
The sarcasm was so thick you could've cut it with a knife.

Re: New DSi Coming With 4" Screen. Nintendo goes Apple Confirmed.

The fact that Nintendo is planning to use it as a text reading device among other things is making me think for sure the device will have a higher resolution. The device would be a failure in utility otherwise. That, and I would think Nintendo would bump up the hardware inside again. In other words, it really is starting to sound like a new system, even if it comes in the form of a kind of refresh.

And to the person complaining about the price, they already stated they were planning to keep the price consistent with the current DSi pricing. So in other words, the DS(i) might no longer be horribly overpriced.

Re: New DSi Coming With 4" Screen. Nintendo goes Apple Confirmed.

I actually don't see nintendo making a new handheld anytime soon. They need actual competition for that to happen.

That's why the gameboy has such a long life span.

I suppose you could say that the DS was a "Gameboy killer".

I guess Nintendo's next handheld will be a DS-killer.

Re: New DSi Coming With 4" Screen. Nintendo goes Apple Confirmed.

I still have the original DS and it works fine. I've been thinking of getting a DSi, because I still have a GBA and a Gameboy Color to play my older games on.

I don't really like how they're updating a perfectly fine system, though. The only way to make it better is to reintroduce the GBA slot.

Re: New DSi Coming With 4" Screen. Nintendo goes Apple Confirmed.

Why the hell would Nintendo bring back the GBA slot? Everyone seems to want it in the next DS and that would be the best upgrade.

It would be taking a step back. Think about how huge that slot is.

A Virtual Handheld service on the other hand....

I could give you some very polite response saying that it was incredibly obvious, but saying you need to learn how to detect sarcasm is easier.

It would have to be from out side the company that made it to be an *insert system here* killer.

Yeah, funny. But its still nothing special. I still can't believe they're releasing it just because of a bigger screen. So its name will be "Nintendo DSi BS". Sounds weird when saying it.

Re: New DSi Coming With 4" Screen. Nintendo goes Apple Confirmed.

Already have a DSi, but as long as this is the only change for the system, but this doesn't bother me at all. I preferred the Lite over the normal DS anyway.

Not really. If Nintendo had just released a technologically superior Gameboy instead of the DS, chances are it would have failed to outsell the PSP, which was pretty much designed to be a "gameboy killer". So Nintendo beat them to the punch and killed the gameboy themselves.

Re: New DSi Coming With 4" Screen. Nintendo goes Apple Confirmed.

That is ♥♥♥♥ing huge...

More pix here, better comparison of size.

However, this newer model is supposed to have 1-3 hours extra battery life when compared to the original DSi.

Re: New DSi Coming With 4" Screen. Nintendo goes Apple Confirmed.

Nintendo, ever ones to fight the status quo, refuse to make smaller, more accessible pieces of hardware, like everyone else. No, they make it bigger and more expensive. Huzzah!

I don't know why we're still talking about it. It's clearly not aimed at us, and no one here is going to buy one.

Re: New DSi Coming With 4" Screen. Nintendo goes Apple Confirmed.

That's actually a pretty damn plausible upgrade. I only have a DSLite but I would love to get this to be the successor of the system I have, rather than the DSi.

Why? It's bigger. That is the only difference. It just makes it more difficult to carry around; it certainly won't fit in a pocket.
