The Nintendo DS is actually doing very, very successfully. I own more than twice as many games for it than I do for the PSP. There ARE quite a few innovative games on there that make comfortable use of the touch screen.Flipside posted on Sep 16 2005 at 04:03 PM said:Twinbee posted on Sep 16 2005 at 03:44 PM said:It's not ABOUT existing genres and the same way we play games today.

Which means a severe lack of games for that thing.
If it's about creating new franchises then Nintendo better have alot of ideas stockpiled. Just look at the Nintendo DS, 3rd partys have no creativity in the slightest, instead of creating new franchises they just create a standard game then make you select attacks on the touch screen or whatever, so you can't count on them.
So all we'll be left with is a few short innovative Nintendo games, a load of NES roms, some lazy licenced kids junk with shoddy controls and some ports that won't work with the controller at all.

“We’ll be showing the ‘Classic Style Expansion’ at some point in the future. This will be a unit into which the standard Revolution handset slides. This will create a wireless standard controller built to Nintendo’s usual high standards and will enable play for SNES, Nintendo 64 and other Revolution games – so we will have a great game pad too.”
