He notes that having GPS as a feature would enhance the games available as it would add some decent location-based functionality.

There's rumours abound about what new features will be found in the Nintendo DS2.

The handheld has been mooted for a launch at this year's E3 and it is said to use a Nvidia Tegra chip, instead of an ATI CPU chip. Other features rumoured include an iPhone-style accelerometer.
