    Nintendo DS

    This next handheld generation is gonna rock.
    Don't get me wrong, I'll be purchasing a PSP ... I'd love a handheld virsion of Metal Gear, but it's still just a tiny PS2.

    It's like N said at their conference 'Why go a little bit faster down the same road, when we can take you down a whole new path'.

    2d or 3d on a screen of the developers choice, pressure sensetive tablet screen with stylis, wireless link, wai-fi multiplayer, voice recognition.
    Nintendo DS



    Check out the demo for Metroid Prime Hunters ...
    you control Samus' movements with the D-pad and you aim and fire with your finger or stylis! Tapping the screen as fast as you can to fire.
    I was also pretty suprised that it involved Wai-Fi multiplayer and messaging.... And voice recognition, I've yet to see a demo that takes advantage of it tho

    Oh, and check out the Mario 64x4 ! 4 player mario 64!

    They also had demos of portable Art programs and 3d sculpting tools to get your 'art' on and send it to other friends screens. And the Baby Mario demo where he was falling from the sky and you had to draw clouds for him to land on.

    I'm pumped, when nintendo decides to innovate they usually create industry standards. I wish this thing the best of luck.

    It's so inspiring, so many game ideas bouncing around in my head now... I can only imagine how developers feel.
    I'm crossing my fingers for a tiny RTS that I get to order my troops around with my fangers!

    The whole stylus thing is gonna suck imo. How are you suposed to play it in class without getting caught?

    But seriously, it owuld look pretty idiotic to a bystander if a person is jabbing at the screen.

    However, id be cool if someone made a sketchbook 'game' for it. It would be nice and compact.
    Don't just practice. Also Practice the right things, the right way.

    I'm not a nintendo hater. I have a Gamecube even, but Nintendo's GoldenAge Ended with the SNES.

    It's the PSP alll the way for me. I just can't look backwards at that N64 look while I can be playing the equivalent of MGS2 on the PSP.

    This could be really sweet. I like that they take chances with going in a totally different direction instead of the 'safe' alternative. Doesn't always work (virtual boy) but hey, someone's gotta do it.

    The battle will be amazing indeed.

    JOSHUATHEJAMES: The PSP will rock, I love handheld.. and I'll love a portable PS2 .... I loved that the Advance was basically a portable SNES. I wish the PSP luck too, but I do think it will be short lived because how thin they are spreading themselves... the fact that they are fogetting what new generation game-play is all about -----> innovation and evolution.

    Grover: Yea, the V-boy was a stain ... created by a very senile man that had been hit by a car
    It failed 'cause it offered no gameplay innovation... only visual manipulation.

    Pencil Soldier: Hehe, if you care that much of what peeps think about you then maybe portable gaming isn't your thing ;p

    It's amazing how many poeople shoot me the 'stank-eye' when I'm playing a portable game in a social environment... like I'm some scumm of the earth.... Games are my passion, they're what I love... so I wanna play every one so I'm educated in the industry...
    Nobody shoots me the 'stank-eye' when I'm drawing.

    We study Nintendo a LOT in Industrial Design ... mostly concerning the man that created Mario was an industrial designer and had never played a game before.
    But I like to consider a few of N's innovations that are industry standard now when I see them out on a limb with new thoughts:
    The controler pad, the D-pad, the anologue stick, multi-button pad, sholder buttons, 4 controler ports, Saving a game on an internal battery, true 3D environments, AV-connection..... oh and portable gaming (Game & Watch to Gameboy) ... Just to name a few...
    You should hear about how much the world laughed at them when they came up with the concept of the Gameboy ... so many companies turned down support only to come begging right back again.

    competition within gaming has gotten inspiring, expect many new things between all the companies within' the next few years.

    Great points, Sammy. It does seem like they always come out with things that no one has ever done before, and most other companies just follow suit. I used to be really big on Nintendo stuff, but I pretty much only play Frozen throne nowadays so my console gaming knowledge is limited.

    ported games Vs original gameplay
    250 $ vs 150 $

    Nintendo is going to fight on those principles. I think both handelds look promising but I find flaws in both of them. Nitpick yadda yadda.... PSP's screen looks too vulnerable to scratches. DS's cassing looks like a cheap plastic brick out of the 80's. All things aside, so far I'm leaning more toward the DS.... Content and originality baby !

    egerie: Great points... I'm pretty certain that Sony is purposefully pushing the look of a very vulnerable screen. With that look they can create as many first party carying cases for it... childlike ones, executive ones, etc.
    the PSP looks so damn sleak and sexy, it's very nicely designed ... I'd like to have a very professional carying case for it :beer:

    Nintendo said that the DS on display wasn't the final design... good thing too, it's a bit ugly in my opinion ... not nearly as sleak and sexy as the SP is ... Nintendo's always had very nice industrial design, the gamecube definately stands out very much next to all my other systems from the past... which are pretty much ALL black! argggg...
    I'm still waiting for their final design, and what duo-colors it will be available in.

    cartoonfox: I hear that when it comes out we'll both have to get it and play over a wai-fi connection together! OHHH MAN multiplayer mario 64! I'm sold

    Yea, the DS has Wai-Fi capabilities

    If you're in a zone that offers it you can play across the world like an internet connection.
