Nintendo to integrate new DS with Wii

Consoles will be able to share content via Wi-Fi

A future iteration of the Nintendo DS handheld gaming console will be more closely integrated with the company's brand-leading Wii console. That's according to a New York Times article which contained some interesting comments from Nintendo America president and chief operating officer Reggie Fils-Aime.

"Mr. Fils-Aime said that a future DS device will be more tightly integrated with its Wii console. Complete games as well as game samplers will be able to be downloaded into the Wii using its broadband connection, and then transferred wirelessly to the DS," the NYT article reads.

"To aggressively drive DS business we need to provide other forms of entertainment to excite the consumer," Mr. Fils-Aime also told the New York Times.

Nintendo has based its latest generation of games consoles around innovation - staying ahead of the pack; setting the trend. So don't expect the Japanese giant to rest on its laurels.
