To us, the DS Lite is perfick
-- it's slim, stylish, and beautifully proportioned. Will that stop Nintendo from giving the whole thing a facelift and turning it into something even more desirable
? Probably not. Ninty has a history of giving its handhelds a nip and a tuck, and the company will have noted the extra momentum enjoyed by the PSP in Japan
since its redesign. Frankly, we'd be surprised if the Lite wasn't
updated at some point in the future.
As would Hirokazu Hamamura, boss of Famitsu publisher Enterbrain, who reckons that Nintendo may announce a new DS model at this year's E3. Hamamura's prediction appeared in the latest edition of Weekly Famitsu
, and was greeted by a "No comment" from Nintendo. Let the wanton speculation begin!
