Which is an astoundingly inaccurate portrayal of love hotels.

Also, Nintendo's love hotels failed, that was when they were trying everything to make money, nothing really worked until they went into toys.

1st sentence. (NSFW)

And I'm a nintendo fan anyways.

And the first sentence of that in any way implies Mafia-style Japanese Pimps"

Love hotels are for couples to get private time in a country where apartments are about the size of a refrigerator.

While that often is sexual in nature (though not always) it is in no way "pimping".

Love hotels (from my admittedly limited understanding) were created out of a need, couples, especially couples with kids, needed more space to be intimate (not necessarily hanky panky, just general intimacy), so the love hotel came to exist.

I can't say I care too much about this whole matter, but I just thought I should put the record straight on it.

And yeah, Nintendo, some good stuff coming out of Nintendo, my avatar is from Nintendo.

But on subject, I think it'll be another DS redesign.

Look at Nintendo's North American handhelds:
Gameboy>Gameboy Pocket>Gameboy Color
GBA>GBA SP>GBA Micro
DS>DS Lite>DS ________

And yes, I know about the Gameboy Light. That's why I said North America.

And double posting FTF :roll:

I disagree with this post rather strongly.

I would say the Gameboy Color was more than a redesign (it had exclusive titles) and the Game Boy Micro only came out after the DS came ou and failed nearly instantly.

It will be a new DS, little doubt about that, but it will be more than just a redesign.

I think now would be a good time to mention the the Game Boy is my favorite system of all time and a return of the Game Boy would be more than welcome in my mind, but I know it won't happen and won't be disappointed or anything if it doesn't.

Often in those country's you live in large families. Lets say you and your wife own a house. With you would be the parents of one if not both and your kids. The housing is small as well. If you want time alone your not going to get it at home.

Which is basically the point I was getting at.

Never thought about that, but that's very possible.

A tilt sensitive handheld sounds bad to me.

Agreed. To frustrating.

How are the tilt-games for the GBA? I know the tech is a few years old, but what are those like?

I agree full heartedly, but I wouldn't be surprise if it isn't in there.

Even if it is, few games will probably use it, like the microphone on the DS.

Think about it:

GBC = NES
GBA = SNES
DS = N64

We just have to predict what gimmick it will have.
Gimmick? all voice-controlled.

"fire, fire, fire, fire" :lol:
