Other than changing the size of the device, I don't see what other physical features they could add to the 3DS.

Hopefully, there wont be one for a long time.
Im not getting tricked into thinking the Dsi is way better than the Lite anytime soon.

I've seen on the internet a few people say that they would have to a remodel quickly because of a "flaw". This is Nintendo we're talking about. They aren't going to release a 300 dollar system and then anounce there was a "flaw" with their system. That's microsoft's job.

Couldn't resist the cheap shot. :P

@HolyMackerel I think it was a misspelling. He meant to say 'different'. :D

BTW I hate yearly updates.

I have a DS lite, and I'm glad I didn't upgrade. The 3DS is going to be awesome, and even if there is new one, I would still be happy with the the first 3DS.

It took four years for the DSi, a new DS that could do (a few and, in the grand scheme of things, insignificant) things the older DS couldn't, was released.
The DS Lite was released about a year after the Phat, but it didn't really have anything the Phat didn't (unless you count GBA carts poking out at you and millions of fingerprints).

Just sayin'.

At least two years, and it'll probably be longer. Nintendo rarely does yearly updates, at least to my knowledge, and I doubt they'd ever start. It's bad business, if you ask me.

I bet Nintendo is going to release another 3DS after the first one is released from Nintendo. Nintendo always does that.

Actually the Lite is what made the DS massively popular. I didn't get a DS until the Lite was out. Why? It was way better looking, had a better form factor, a better stylus, brighter screens with multiple settings and a much longer battery life than the Phat. I call that a significant improvement.

The best improvement they could make on the 3DS would be making 3D work from any viewing angle. I don't understand how any game using the accelerometer could still work in 3D. If Nintendo fixed this problem they could make it possible for a 3DS XL, since the DSi XL was made partly to allow a group to huddle around one system, and a group requires multiple viewing angles.

@Scizor Nope, the nature of this 3D tech makes viewing at any angle other than straight on blurry with the 3D effect on. Which is why Nintendo says they know that 3D and accelerometers don't mix. But they can. So long as you move with the 3DS so you're still looking straight on, the 3D will not blur on you. So break out the neck brace and put a 3DS mounting system on it and you'll have no issues. heh

As for more than one person, nope, can't happen without glasses. Or each person having their own 3DS.

Thankfully, judging from the videos the effective viewing angle isn't that small. :P

And that's all the Lite was, an improvement. It didn't add any new features like the DSi did. So yeah, there might be an improved version coming out a year after the 3DS's initial release, but I don't think there'll be a version worth getting, if you already have the old one, coming out for a while. This is all personal opinions, of course. I didn't make the jump to the Lite myself because it didn't offer anything new, but the DSi had the option of downloading games, and was supposed to get a bunch of DSi exclusives, and so I bought a DSi.
Likewise, the GBA SP had built-in lights and rechargeable batteries, definitively worth making the jump from the old GBA. The Micro on the other hand, was just smaller and nothing necessary if you already had the SP.

That's my logic, anyway.
