    Nintendo DS is coming

    Nintendo executives today unveiled plans for a new portable game system tentatively called the "Nintendo DS"—short for "Double Screen."

    DS is not seen as a replacement for Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Advance SP, but rather a separate line. "We have developed Nintendo DS based upon a completely different concept from existing game devices in order to provide players with a unique entertainment experience for the 21st century," said Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata in a press release.

    DS, which is scheduled for release later this year, will feature two 3-inch TFT screens with the same edge-lighting as the Game Boy Advance SP. "Nintendo is known for amazing innovation and this is yet another example of it," Nintendo vice president of corporate communications told GameSpy. "The screens on DS have unbelievable clarity."

    Nintendo has not gone into detail about the value of having two screens on a single handheld unit. "From information made available today, players can look forward to being able to manage their game progress from two different perspectives, enhancing both the speed and strategy of the challenge. For example in a soccer game, users can view the whole game on one screen while simultaneously focusing on an individual soccer player's tackle or goal on the other screen," was the only hint about the second screen in the official press release.

    Nintendo has not announced what medium DS games will be stored on, processors speed, size, or make. Nor has it released details on the screen resolution, battery-life, or controls.

    The release did specify that DS will have multiple processors and multiple banks adding up to one full gigabit of memory. It is known that several independent game publishers have already begun work on games for DS.

    Having sold more than 150 million Game Boy units, Nintendo has long controlled more than 90 percent of the portable games market. Last May, Sony Computer Entertainment unveiled plans for PSP (a portable PlayStation) which many analysts view as a serious challenge Nintendo’s hold on the handheld market.
