DS Daily: That tricky extra dimension

Tecmo's announcement that Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff would be a "classic 2D game" cheered us no end.

Normal DS game + slightly different sticker = amazing collectible

eBay seller putermcgee's batch of DS games really isn't that different from other used DS games up for sale. The current bids are commensurate with other auctions for the same games, even.

DS sells twenty million in Europe

One of the biggest challenges of being a Nintendo blogger is finding new ways of telling your readers that the DS is popular in various regions of the world. We could take the easy route here and resort to writing about hot cakes and/or printing money, but no, we're just going to give it to you...
