DS OPen

I’m a huge fan of Nintendo’s small Gameboy Advance and can’t quite understand this new “dual screen” unit and it’s target market. The elegance of the Gameboy has much to do with its size. This unit appears to be getting too big.

snippets from the press release:

Software companies worldwide have more than 120 Nintendo DS games in development. Nintendo alone is developing more than 20 titles, and in excess of 100 companies have signed on to create games for the new system.

“The innovative functions make Nintendo DS a superior game device, while the chat feature and ability to detect other DS units make it a social device as well,” says Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of sales and marketing. “We’ve figured out the magic of what makes portable game play so attractive to consumers.We’ve defeated nine challengers and once again we’re prepared to win.”

Since the release of its first home video game system in 1983, Nintendo has sold more than 1.9 billion video games and more than 170 million hardware units globally

    Yeah, my bad. I thought I would see my post immediately, when I didn’t I re-posted it. Finally, I figured out what was going on.
