I know we're still at the beginning era of the 3DS, but what is next for Nintendo's next gen handheld?
Gameboy - Portable system
Gameboy Colour - Portable system w/ colour
Gameboy Advance - Increase from 8 bit to 32 bit.
Nintendo DS - Dual screen, touch screen with stylus support, wifi connection.
Nintendo 3DS - 3D, increased graphics, gyroscope

Next gen handheld - 2nd analog stick built in, increased graphics, proper ergonomics, widescreen screens, rumble, not sure what the next gimmick is.

What's your thoughts. Do you think Nintendo will surprise us gamers again, or just a refinement of what we already saw.

It'll probably be a phone

And it will be depressing

I think the next handheld will be in HD. The Nintendo HDS if you will.

I just want the single screen back. The dual screen was nice for a while, but I'm tired of the upper screen getting scratches on it. I've had to send mine in for repairs once for that already and I'm about due for a second time.

Thought-control. It's been experimented with in the past with poor results, but Nintendo will partner with whatever engineering firm perfects it and incorporate it into their next handheld.

Then another engineering firm will come forward with a patent on the technology from 2 years previous, and sue.

But regardless, we'll have games that can be controlled by our thoughts.

Sorry, console. And I've said that, like, in 2011 or something.

At least, Nintendo's been playing around with holodisplays since around that time. Unless by now they've suddenly got incredibly compact holodisplays, it'll probably be console. I hope they do it with AR. Holo and AR should be cool.

Probably Holodisplays

They have been toying with it forever now. Only a matter of time.
