A Quick Look At the Next-Gen Nintendo DS

A Quick Look At the Next-Gen Nintendo DS


I think we’d all agree that the DS Lite is a significant improvement over the first Nintendo DS. As we look toward another upgrade, there are several possibilities for new and improved features. Jesus Diaz of Gizmodo put together a rather lengthy wish list, trying to stay as realistic as possible for the DS2.

In compiling this list, Jesus considered what is possible, what has been rumored, and what would actually improve a gamer’s DS experience. For starters, he’s hoping for all sorts of “power-ups”, including a faster processor and better graphics. This should be fairly easy thanks to all the developments in the cell phone world. Memory expansion via an SD card slot is also a possibility, seeing how Nintendo took that route with the Wii.

Other things that are mentioned include an accelerometer, a built-in light sensor, a MacBook-style stealth hinge, a 3.5-inch widescreen on top, a larger touchscreen below, movie playback capabilities, and a two-toned color scheme. What do you think? Looks pretty hot, eh?
