:sleepy: *yawn* old news.... I heard about this about 4 months ago now. To be honest I cant see it being a huge hit but still....... sony are taking over everything now, there are too many fan-boys that will just buy anything that says playstation on it so I reckon the PSP will massivly over-sell any other handheld while the PS3 (such an inventive name) will probably do the same. :sad: its a sad world. :cry:

It's true. DS (Double Screen) has two screens on one GBA. I don't know why the made it or testing it out. Unless your vision impaired or have such good eyesight you can look at two screens at the there's no point to buy it.

Its not "one gba" its a unique stand-alone console that runs on different systems altogether. And there is actually an example of using it in a football (soccer) manager game. You can watch the match on one screen and just glance up at anytime at the other to check indiviual player stats etc or to make substitutions without having to pause it and trail through hundreds of menus like you usually do on football manager games.

Translation e-mail :

''Mystery product''will be there later this year
21 jan. 2004 - A new type of gaming - 2 different screens in your hand - will be there at the end of this year with the name : Nintendo DS ( this name is not 4ever )

This are just a few new things that will be showed ar may at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) at Los Angeles. At the time that all the things are know, players will get a new dimmension of gaming !

Players can look the game at 2 different types, this will improve the strategie. At a soccer game : At 1 screen you can look the match, at the other screen you can look a character individual. Now you don't have to change the camera. With Nintendo DS you can look simply at 2 screens the same time.

Satura Iwata, president of Nintendo, explains : We've made Nintendo DS completely different from other game systems.

The system will have 1 Gigabyte memory

Nintendo DS will be placed together with the Game-boy advanve & Nintendo Gamecube

Um, took me awile to translate :biggrin:
