DS redesign seems to be already finished

Mystery DSNintendo’s DS Lite has been a huge success since it’s release in 06′. Even original DS owners went out and bought the new model. So why make another version? Too late, Nintendo’s already done with it, according to Pacific Crest Securities analyst Evan Wilson.

Wilson said, "Our contacts indicate that a refreshed DS is complete. It’s thinner (it has no GBA port), has on-board storage, and larger screens. However we do not expect a revamped Wii or DS until sales begin to tail off in al three major geographies."

This makes sense, with the holiday madness, retail stores won’t have enough room for new products.

Think about the limited space retail stores have. In example–look how much room the huge Rock Band packages are already taking up during this pre-order stage.

A couple of local GameStops that I’ve talked to say it’s so packed in the back, there’s literally no space to walk, and only one person at a time can go into the storage room.

In addition, Nintendo is doing just fine with their sales figures for their game machines so why clog up the channel with another product?
