    NINTENDO ANNOUNCES DUAL-SCREENED PORTABLE GAME SYSTEM

    “Mystery Product” to Launch Later this Year

    An unprecedented approach to video game play — holding two separate game screens in the palm of your hands — hits the scene later this year when Nintendo introduces a new portable game system, Nintendo DS (temporary name).

    Today’s announcement is just a glimpse of the additional features and benefits that will be shown in full at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles in May. Once fully revealed, players will see the innovative advance in game interaction.

    From information made available today, players can look forward to being able to manage their game progress from two different perspectives, enhancing both the speed and strategy of the challenge. For example in a football game, you can view the whole game on one screen, while simultaneously focusing on an individual footballer’s tackle or goal on the other screen. Players will no longer be forced to interrupt game play to shift perspective, such as moving from a wide shot to a close up, or alternating between a character’s ongoing battle and a map of their environment. Nintendo DS makes it possible to perform the tasks in real time by simply glancing from one screen to the other.


    Satoru Iwata, Nintendo president, explains: “We have developed Nintendo DS based upon a completely different concept from existing game devices in order to provide players with a unique entertainment experience for the 21st century"

    Nintendo DS features two separate 3” TFT LCD display panels, separate processors, and semiconductor memory of up to 1 Gigabit. It is scheduled to launch worldwide before the end of 2004. In addition to Nintendo developed software, the company is in discussions with third party game developers around the world.

    Nintendo DS will be marketed separately from the existing Nintendo Game Boy Advance portable system and Nintendo GameCube home console.

    Leave it to Nintendo to innovate. 2 screens - better than I expected !

    Now let's all pray it doesn't go the way of the Virtual Boy , R.O.B. and the infamous "glove controller"...

    *starting to save money NOW*

    One interesting rumor that came up :

    What if the second screen is a touchscreen - How cool would that be ?

    What if the whole thing is holographic ? - Sweet !



    Then again - these are the people who built the 64DD...

    They are just trying to compete with Sony's PSP. You didn't think Nintendo would just sit around lettings Sony take over the hand-held market aswell did you?

    Nintendo did not release an image of the new product, but it said that the dual screens will let a user view games from two different perspectives, such as an overview map and a close-up of a battle. In a news release, Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo Co., said the Nintendo DS is "based upon a completely different concept from existing game devices."


    I would rather see an n64 addon for the gamecube
