UPDATE: It seems we'll be hearing from Nintendo earlier than I thought. Iwata is expected to make some announcements tomorrow, October 2nd. I wonder if they'll just gloat about their ability to sell Wii's like Church's sell faith or if they will actually "git down to tha needy greedy". (Nacho Libre reference by the way)
Quite frankly, I have no idea what to make of this. There's no denying Nintendo ALWAYS makes twenty million versions of ONE gaming system, I'm looking at you Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance and yes even you Super Gameboy, you still count. They also sell millions and millions of them so they have no reason to stop and until people stop buying them, it'll continue.
So the rumor that Nintendo is getting ready to release a new DS with Media functionality and built in camera doesn't surprise me one bit. As a matter of fact I'm surprised it's taking them this long. Media functionality, awesome. Camera, meh not so much. The camera in these things usually suck bad. The PSP add on camera is a measly 1.0 megapixel, even the camera in the iPhone is painstakingly 2.0 megapixels. Granted it does take some decent pics if you can happen to freeze time, make your subjects pose just right under the right amount of light, or you just so happen to NOT be Michael J. Fox.
I'm looking forward to this being announced though. It's bound to happen soon with Tokyo Game Show just around the corner, which Nintendo will not be attending, they are sure to do their own thing, that's just how those mothafuckas roll.
