Erm, yes... I've read that the new gen games will be different from the ones we play today and if that happens to be the case than things WILL be harder.
Not necessarily. Each system has its own "standard" data structures for common game components. In the DS's case that's images, models, animations, sounds, etc. Since the 5th generation will be on the DS like the fourth generation it's likely that those elements I just mentioned will be able to be hacked with the same knowledge and/or tools, which is a huge time saver.

We won't be starting from square one as has been done in past generations.
