This is so very true. All who have attempted to fight Nintendo in the handheld market has lost horribly. Remember GameGear, Lynx, WonderSwan, NGPC, etc.? Yes, even nGage deserves to be on this list.

Sony is the only company that could attempt to topple Nintendo here, but I've heard that Sony's handheld will cost loads more than Nintendo's and have far less battery life... Two MAJOR things that the handheld market desires greatly. Things can ultimately change by launch, but if they're not careful they'll just add the PSP to the land of handheld flops.

Right, yeah, ok, i'm new, whatever.

First off, it's pr0ject name is the Nintendo DS, as in Dual Screen, not double screen.

http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/game/doc ... /nds06.jpg
http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/game/doc ... /nds10.jpg
http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/game/doc ... /nds11.jpg

That isn't the final design, as you can tell by the lack of logos, etc.

Secondly, it will be backwards compatible, allowing the user to play every type of Gameboy game going. It will have a slot for this, and a slot for the DS carts.

Thirdly, it will use touch screen technology, and will recognise handwriting from the user using a stylus.

On a fourth point, games announced so far have been

Mario 64x4 (http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/game/doc ... /nds13.jpg)

Mario Kart DS

Metroid Prime: Hunters (not THE Hunters) (http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/game/doc ... /nds14.jpg)

Sonic DS

A new FF:Crystal Chronicles

Quote:

For about 4 times the price, probably won't sell much either. The Nintendo GBA SP itself has outsold the PS2 by about 3 times.

It has an estimated release of Christmas

It will be voice activated

It will have WI-FI capability (connect to the internet and play online with other gamers in different countries)

Well considering most people have to buy at least 5 PS2s due to breakages, I think the GBA deserves to outsell the PS2.

god, the beginning of this thread stinks of fanboys! I mean, Nintendo have gone out and been innovative, creating another fantastic looking console.

Have you seen the PSP? none of the features of its rival the DS, and it will be so much more expensive compared to the DS estimated $150.

And lastly, the battery life, if anything, has amazingly been improved!
