Nintendo DS 2 Will Have High Resolution Graphics and Motion Accelerometer
The Nintendo DSi XL hasn’t even launched in the U.S. and Europe yet, and already there is talk about what hardware the successor to the world’s best selling handheld video game system will have.
Straight from the man himself, President of Nintendo of Japan, Satoru Iwata stated in an interview with Asahi that the next DS system will have “high resolution graphics” and an “accelerometer.”
This adds fuel to the fire where rumors are stating that the next generation of handheld consoles will contain Tegra or Tegra 2 graphic chips, the same one that powers the Zune HD. The NDS has proved that N64-like graphics are possible, so it is only natural that we can expect graphics that are better than the PSP or close to Gamecube levels.
An accelerometer would put a DS2 on equal footing with the iPhone/iPod touch combo.
