1.They've Got Too Many 3DS' to Sell
2.R&D and Production Costs Too Much
3.New Colors and Bundles are More Lucrative
4.They Need Games First
5.It's Too Early

Lastly: It doesn't need to be any smaller. Maybe a redesign, but not smaller.

My DS backlog should last at least that long.

Again, why do people always assume the next model will be smaller? The 3DS is already not much different in size to the DS Lite. I also really can't understand why people have mentioned that the 3DS is far too big for their pockets. It fits nicely in my pockets, and I don't think my pockets are exactly massive at all.

Because people keep (foolishly) calling it "3DS Lite," and being smaller is kind of what "Lite" means...

Oh nice news from a legitimate source... http://gear.ign... uh... not.

These were the guys that predicted the DS would fail and PSP would take most of the market - the Wii would completely bomb etc. etc.
Not trusting their 'predictions'.

Actually, if they predict something - the opposite is usually true.
I expect a redesign in less than a year's time.

They just did a price drop after a mere 4 months. Anything can happen when it's Nintendo.
