"DS" officially stands for "developer's system.


That, but it still doesn't really make any sense.

From: VobeDarkElf | #005 It's just an upgraded version of a DS with a few new features, such as the 3D screen on top.
Nope. I wouldn't call much, much more powerful hardware "just an upgrade".


It is in the exact same sense that the Super NES was the successor to the NES. And as someone already stated before, people need to learn what a portmanteau is...

DS = Developer's system.
3ds = 3 dimensional system.

Not much else it could be.

Just because it's called a "3D Screen" doesn't mean it doesn't have another screen. Or an analog. Or a gyro sensor. Etc.
