Now, it will probably sell well in Japan (those obsessed technophiles will love anything that includes technological wizardry even if there are better options) but as for other places...
I mean wow, I'm just shocked that Nintendo actually went through with this. I first and foremost have to eat my words about them not releasing a new handheld until it has greater capabilities and... stuff. I can't see the new added camera type thing as anything but a gimmick, and I thought they'd learn that having a bunch of multimedia options never really did sell many units (looking at Sony here, with boththeir systems)
I'm just in shock right now so I may not have my facts straight, but the only way this new DS will be highly successful is if Nintendo do indeed put a type of DS vitual console store, making us able to download gbc and gba games (as well as the fact that they now have sd slots and can take in higher memory right?)
Because if that's true... wow. The possibilties. All the games I missed last gen and couldn't find in stores would be at my disposal. I'd be so happy... and to be able to download the game boy color ****cs... (I hope you know what word that is, apparently it's censored by gamespot for obscure reasons)
Er any comments? I'm baffled at Nintendo's decision more than anything else and probably don't have a few things right so I welcome any help on your part :)
EDIT: I also don't know if the gba micro tanked, as I don't have my facts straight. It's just that I never even heard of the thing, similar to how the silly E-reader went by without my noticing, and it's only what I've seen from other users stating that the gba micro was a failure.
