  Nintendo DS Detailed  
Posted 2004-03-17 by Tony Walsh
According to CNN, a report authored by P.J. McNealy of American Technology Research reveals some new and unusual features of Nintendo's next-gen handheld console:
  • Instant Messaging functionality

  • users type messages on a touch screen using a stylus

  • free wireless gaming

  • I'm not sure how useful these features will be in actuality (or how "free" the wireless component will be), but the DS will have to offer radically-different functionality to the Game Boy Advance in order to be the next big thing. More of the same just won't cut it.

    Introducing the WinCE-powered Gametrac. It's a gaming console. It's a media-player. It's a GPS. It's a camera. It's a wireless texter. It'll be unloaded on the UK this year. Will it succeed?

    Over at 1-up, there's news of publisher THQ's dismay at the lack of support for Nintendo DS development. THQ, the "biggest third-party publisher of Game Boy Advance games in North America" has yet to declare it will be producing DS titles. More fuel for the suck fire.
