Meh. More DS rumors. I’ll just do a quick recap post, since the E3 presser is coming later today.
- Smaller size
$100 cheaperCorrection: The accurate info is “sub-$100” DS ($99, if Nintendo’s track record holds up)
- No GBA slot
- Tllt, motion sensitivity
- Motion sensitive carts
- Activision motion peripheral
- Tony Hawk DS title uses Activision peripheral
I’ll take wild, rampant speculation and rumor for $500, Alex.
UPDATE: Added correction. And, like I said before, this is indicative of Nintendo recognizing a threat to its handheld business, and changing strategy accordingly. If it’s a full-blown redesign, you can bet they saw the iPhone 3G and Apple’s App Store coming a mile away. Good on them. Also, Joystiq makes a good point, saying that if Activision and Nintendo are creating a motion sensing peripheral, it bodes well for a new DS, because future games would require motion, and they wouldn’t want existing DS Lite owners left out in the cold.
