Does Nintendo need a 3G DS?
So says Pacfic Crest Securities analyst Evan Wilson, whose job it is to watch tech companies to he can advice potential investors:
"Our contacts indicate that a refreshed DS is complete," reports GamesSpot. "It is thinner, has on-board storage, and larger screens. However, we do not expect a revamped Wii or DS until sales begin to tail off in all three major geographies."
We've asked Nintendo to comment on the substance of this story. We have yet to receive a reply. But considering the success of the DS Lite this year, Nintendo doesn't need to launch a revamped handheld until sales of the 2G version start to dip.
