Do you think maybe in a couple of years if the DSi was successful..do you think the big"N" will consider a new system in the DS Series..like upgrading the DSi?..i think the DSi is cool just the way it is..there are a little gimmicky parts..but it doesnt stop you from buying one right??

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Yuuki, and for some odd reason, Megumi (School Rumble)

Nope. This is the last revision of the DS. After the DSi burns out they will finally introduce their next generation handheld and their dominance will continue.
Eureka seveN changed my life.

Every Nintendo handheld system so far go three versions:
GameBoy - GameBoy Pocket - GameBoy ColorGameBoy Advance - GameBoy Advance SP - GameBoy MicroNintendo DS - Nintendo DS Lite - Nintendo DSi
I doubt, Nintendo will break that pattern and introduce a fourth generation of the DS. What's enough is enough and the DS can't get probably any better (except for graphics, but this is something for a new system). Like UVERoo said, the next portable system will be a completely new one.

Alot of fuss around the net says the DSi is a simple distraction from Nintendo to counter the iPhone, but I dont think so. Publishers are so locked onto the DS and now DSiWare and its low cost development I dont see the DS/DSi going anywhere anytime soon. Nintendo is the master of creating exceptional software on lower-end consoles. Why do they need to upgrade? (This gives exception to the NES and SNES... both were top consoles when released in the way of power)

I do believe I've seen you on a certain Zelda site before. Anyhow, I'm not sure that the 3-each thing is really that clear cut. I see a big difference between the top and bottom rows, which do parallel somewhat nicely, and the middle row, which to me is an entirely different matter. The GBA saw three different versions, okay, but, unlike the others, it's third iteration did not have more powerful / updated hardware or features in any way. The GameBoy Color and the DSi have a great deal in common, and it will be interesting to see where Nintendo takes this next, but I think it's a stretch to say that they have had a consistent pattern, for the GBA just doesn't follow the pattern of the other two, which is to (1) release the original unit, (2) slim it down and improve it a bit, (3) add new capabilities that make it a new platform in some ways while not entirely breaking with the old platform, leading to some games that will run on both and some that will require the new hardware. The GBA didn't really have that third step at all, for the Micro was really just the same exact hardware but made even smaller than before, and didn't figure in any major way in Nintendo's software strategy at the time the way that DSiWare and GBC enhanced/exclusive titles did.

Yep I think the DSi is here to stay for awhile. I'm guessing the next portable will be a new Gameboy system. But I doubt we'll see that anytime soon.
Plain old gamer :)

Well, I guess you mean ZU. Besides that you're right. The original GameBoy line and the DS are quite similar. A fat model, a slim model and an enhanced model, which even features exclusive games. The GameBoy Advance is different in that matter with its three differently shaped models. However, I don't see how this changes the fact, that Nintendo makes three versions of every handheld generation. There's probably not going to be a fourth GameBoy Advance model. And definitely not a fourth DS.

Well, you can play as the boss characters, set the speed, and online play. Akuma will also be a selectable character!

One thing that is getting missed is that the 3rd iteration of the GBA the Micro was a collectors item. The 3rd iteration of the DS is an upgraded in capability, screen, online, etc. Why would Nintendo spend the money into advancing the DS just to trash it quickly. DSiWare is a baby and Nintendo is going to milk it for sure. They would NOT have spent the money to advance the system the way they did while it was going out the door. Any DSi owner will quickly tell you that its a big upgrade over the DS.

Perhaps we'll get a second generation DS that uses newer DS cards that are not compatible with the original DS similar to the Game Boy Advance being a next-gen Game Boy.

Iwata-san said he had no intentions for a iphone competitor so it would probably be something like a SDS (super duel screen) with gamecube graphics and a touch screen without a stylus but I'm still wishing for virtual boy light!Oh by the way, the psp sucks and will never hold a candle to the dsi!

Have to disagree with you on the PSP Hawkeye.... the PsOne Classics are coming in full storm now weekly. Its a portable stash of PsOne titles for on the go play and Im loving it. I got R-TypesDelta two weeks ago and loving it once again.
I dont think Nintendo would even be profitable with a iPhone type portable. The iPhone apps are very shallow and short lived and Nintendo is about actual gaming (well mostly, the personal walking thing is kinda .... whatever) but I guess my point is that one of Nintendo biggest games is Pokemon. Im a fan of sorts I preordered Diamond and enjoyed it and beat the original two games on GB. Pokemon is a great beginner rpg for any age that could easily put a non gamer into a seat that could lead them into a life of gaming as a hobby. A iPhone app will not do that.
