Default Nintendo DS in November!

Nintendo DS in November!
-09/23/04-


The next Nintendo handheld console, the Nintendo DS, will be released in the US on November 21st, 2004. Japan will get Nintendo DS soon after that, on December 2nd, 2004. No surprise here, as Nintendo hopes that the holiday season will bring many sales to it's new handheld. Europe/Australia is expected to have a release date of early 2005. The retail price for the US is $149.99.

A Pokemon game on the Nintendo DS is inevitable, in fact, we already had confirmation from Pokemon game makers that they're working on a Pokemon game for Nintendo DS (any new updates about that will be posted here in the news).

For those that don't know, the Nintendo DS uses two separate screens to play games. There's many advantages to this, for example, instead of having a map (such as race course maps in racing games) on the top right corner or whatever, it can be on a seperate screen so it doesn't clog up the screen. But you can expect game makers to create many different way to use the dual screen feature.

Actually, I didn't expect for it to come out so soon. I was thinking it would be sometime around next year.

Nonetheless, its pricey, so I might wait on it like it did for the GBA. It will likely drop in price sooner or later. By then the number of games available for it should be higher, so I think its worth the wait.

The business section of the newspaper said 11-21 release. My gamestop is taking reservations and this is payday! You know where some of my $$$ are going. The manager says he's already got the one for display.

I read that the DS would have a November release over a week ago (Although the site mentioned they wouldn't get stock until the 28th). I'm sure that when it reaches England it'll be about £100 at least (But if I import it, it will only cost about £80 not including shipping). Now... If I can talk my parents into letting me buy it with my birthday money (Before my birthday), it should arrive before Dec 3rd; That's a plus for me. But then there's the games...

I think the DS is going to use discs. But I'm not sure.

I read that they will be lke a Soupedup Floppy Disk. You know like Floppies are square with a disk inside.

Well DS games will be like that but obviously with more memory on the Disks. They made it like that so it could be a medium that could hold a lot of memory while at the same time making it easy so the games are still portable.

The smaller the cartridges get, the more memory and technology they have...

If you actually took the Disk inside the floppy disk out and put in the DS, would that work?

Yay! My charmeleon evolved!!!

Just for clarity, could someone answer my questions?

1) Is this a new console, or an update to GBA (Such as GBA SP.)

2) Is this backwards compatible with GBA(SP) and/or GBC Games?

That's unusual; anyone know why that is?

Are you sure that we are getting it before Japan because everything always comes out in Japan before anywhere else.

There is no reason why it's coming out here first rather than in Japan; but I find it cool they are switching the tables, even if it's only by a week (or two).
