"We've been waiting for this! We'll be sure to try out something new with this"
"We would definitely like to release something for the launch"

Sounds like Sonic fans can get ready to buy a new system...!

One can only hope it's not another revamped gameboy. We have enough of those

I'll say "Count me out" for now; then again, that's bound to change as it has in the past.

Also, message #400.

I may get the system, depending on what it is... I hope it's a better version gamecube that can play gamecube games, butothers games as well...that is the system I want

They've been going to great lengths to convince people that the DS and GameBoy are different products (some analogy about a third pillar), so we'll probably keep getting new GameBoys. I have to wonder if it isn't diluting their market too much though, especially with some of the other new stuff coming out. PlayStation 3, Xbox Next, PSP, the next cube, GBA, N-Gage and now DS? There comes a point where there's just only so many game systems that can succeed, and I think we're there (even without the N-Gage).

But I could be wrong. Even if half of GBA's buyers get a DS instead, they'll still both be selling relatively well. I think a lot will depend on the kind of support they get; if it ends up being just a gimmick like the GBA-GCN thing, they will have failed, but hopefully developers will be interested enough in the concept to really branch out and think creatively. Only time will tell...

Wouldn't it be really annoying if they just released an e-reader that plays games independantly without a gameboy? And I don't mean the game boy games: I mean just the e-reader cards. Nintendo should only focus on making the cube more high tech, and forget about releasing more portable systems like game boy. They waste more money on coming up with half-gassed systems like e-reader than they do with coming up with better next generation systems.
