Codename Nintendo DS Announced

Nintendo has announced its next portable system, the Nintendo DS, or Dual Screen. It features dual processors, dual 3″ LCD screens, and possibly wireless integration. In a press release, the company states that this is not designed to replace the GameCube or Gameboy Advance. No word if the screens will be backlit or not.

This is already being called the next Virtual Boy by many pundits, and Im tempted to agree with them. Why buy a new system that cant play your old games? We’re now spoiled by the backwards compatability that the PS2 and GBA gave us. This will flop. Big time.
