Here’s an interesting rumor. Hirokazu Hamamura, the head of Japanese gaming mag Famitsu’s parent company is predicting that Nintendo will unveil the next-generation DS at E3 2008 this summer. Hirokazu has not commented on the hardware or cost though.
If it were anybody else, we’d dismiss the notion, but Hirokazu should be in a position to know. Should we get a new DS, one bit of speculation is that they will do away with the GBA port. And as Kotaku points out, it took two years between the transition from DS to DS Lite, so a new DS this year might just be possible.
