    The following information is translated from Hong Kong Pokemon Alliance 2004, all rights reserved.

    1:Nintendo has released a new machine, similar to Gameboy, but nolonger called Gameboy. It is called DS.


    http://e3.nintendo.co.jp/ds/ds_hardware.wmv
    http://www.ugwire.com/media/nintendo-e32004.wmv
    Brief Introduction: This DS has 2 screens. In order to provide the player a clear image under any light source. Thus means, if one is unclear, look at the other one! XD!

    Interior Microphone: The DS can indentify the voice of the player, or clap hands, and analyse into actions in the machine. We are told that we can use our voices to order the character. e.g."Pikachu! Go left!"

    Non-cable communication: Players can link up to 15 other players for battles and stuff.

          So... You have a similiar thread, blue? ; I need to know if I need to close this.

          But, that does look neat! It just seems like it would get annoying trying to focus on one screen, when there are two. x_x

                    Why can't they just do anything on one screen! I can't have one eye on a screen and my other eye on the other screen! :\

                    I read in my local newspaper today (I chose the right time to start reading the newspaper XD) that the official name fr the device is the Game Boy DS...so therefore, unlike what other people in this thread think, it is a Game Boy replacement, and it will most likely be the system for the 4th gen. Pokmon games...

                      My alliance said that it is the same, so you can see the screen clearly in any light source!
                      If you don't believe me, go to the Japanese sites and have a look through it!
                      And if you don't know Japanese, don't go against me.

                        Oh wow~
                        I'm not flamming with you for I don't want my topic locked, thank you very much!

                        You post in your post, and I'll post in mine.

                        ppl will automatically beleive in the one that they think is true, don't they?
                        -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                        2nd part translated:

                        "Contacting Screen Design"
                        You can choose to divide the screens into individual prosess, (if you think that you can see both screens clearly, you can have a choice). The lower screen can analyse information when you touch it. You can input words in the game by this method.


                        "Sharing games without using cable"
                        If the game producer permits, one game can be played by several players through non-cable communications. This can be used to try a new game before buying it.

                        "3D images"
                        It is even better than N64. The screen shows images up to 60fps, and can produce smoke screen effects.

                        "Batteries and Electronic system"
                        Rechargable batteries. NDS also has "sleep mode" and "serving mode"(saves battery).
                        During sleeping mode, the player can play the game again at anytime, and stop at any time. In "serving mode", the NDS automatically runs when a message is received.

                        "Analyser"
                        NDS has 2 analysers. One is ARM9, the other is ARM7.

                        "New tapes"
                        The new game tapes is made using the newest "half conductor". Lowers the price, and can save up to 1Gigabit informations.

                        "2Game plucks"
                        There are 2 different game plucks in the machine. One for NDS games, the other for GBA games. Using the GBA one, you can pluck in another chip to upgrade your NDS

                              I think if it sells well Nintendo will just end up switching to it as the main hand held console anyway.

                              Wonder how it'll do compared to Sony's hand held?
