  1. I complain because I’m the opposite of an ignorant fanboy of the masses. I refuse to be one of those people who will flock to the newest thing and ignore the flaws. I play devil’s advocate because I’m a skeptic for most things and somewhat of a cynic.

    That being said, Nintendo isn’t flawless. They have a great track record, but they also have a history of pissing off the fans too. GBA slot anyone?

  2. Ant, why do you complain about EVERYTHING? What you just complained about is already addressed in the DSi & XL, which ia larger version. The power button is on the front of the DSi and I have never, ever accidentally turned off my game. In fact, a single touch would only reset to the main DS menu. You have to hold down for 3 seconds to turn off. As for the design, Nintendo has an excellent handheld track record, I am sure the analog was well thought out. I like the look of this portable and I have high hopes for it if they will have Mario, DK, Fox and Zelda at launch (just going by trailer)

  3. There’s a few things they need to change…

    1) Single analog didn’t work for PSP, so why would it work for DS?
    2) The start, select, and home buttons BETTER be hard to press. I don’t wanna touch them and have my game quit whenever I use the touch screen.
    3) I can already see myself pressing the power button with the butt of my thumb during gameplay.
    4) Bring back GBA slot!
