New Nintendo DS…….?

Word on the street is that July will see the unveiling of the DS Extreme at the E3 gaming expo in the States.  It’s rumoured that they’re not going to bother with the GBA port – this means that it won’t be backwards compatible with GameBoy Advance games but allows for a slimmer design and lower price.

So, is this likely?

Well, it has been 2 years since DS Lite was launched and another 2 since the DS hit the streets so it is pretty much on the cards methinks.

Oh, and the rumour comes from a credible source: Hirokazu Hamamura. He’s the head honcho of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu’s parent company Enterbrain.

No word from Nintendo tho.
