*sigh* I guess this is the part where the "debate" turns into a "yo momma so fat" contest.

Well, I can take a hint (or a few thousand hints) I shall leave all you's to your benheckiness.

I agree with CTFan. Nintendo could easily produce a system with the best graphics and hardware, but what would be the point? Without spending all that extra time and money, they went(as in how many sold) much further than sony did. The 360 sold a lot too.(i blame the head start, but it would have produced the same thing) Nintendo is and has been going for innovation, over graphics and hardware, as they developed something much more than just an upgrade. the 360 and the ps3 are straight upgrades. sure, the ps3 has a tilt sensor of some sort, but that didnt revolutionized gameplay. the wii did however.

just my thoughts.

No, all it did was make shovel wear/(crap)kiddie games more common.

Yo momma so fat, she-


Anyways, one major flaw with the DS's design is it lacked an analog stick, or perhaps even dual analog. Many games used the touch screen as an analog stick, which I really REALLY didn't like. DSII will have an analog stick, maybe two, much like the PSP did.
Hey, sup?

Yep. Anyone that doesn't believe it, go to the store and look at the DS and Wii game racks. Shovel ware makes up 90% of what you see. Only good thing is its cheaper to get all the good games. :P

I despise the PSP analog stick and will simply not buy any system with that sort of thing on it.

IMO analog and portable just do not go well together, Nintendo may develop a new portable stick sort of thing for the DS2 which will prove me wrong, but I doubt it.

What's going to be the new Nintendo HANDHELD?
I've been trying to read this thread thinking I was getting people's opinions about the next handheld by Nintendo, but so far all I've read is about the current gen home consoles.




I agree about analog and portable not going well. I don't own a PSP, but I've played one a few times, and I just feel like that thumb thing isn't actually doing what I'm telling it to. If they made it like a normal joystick, it would probably break by jamming it in your pocket or something. Maybe a retractable joystick? That could be fun.
If you're looking at this post and it was made before 2008, just ignore it.
