Industry expects Nintendo DS2 news

Word on new hardware this year?

The DS is still the world's best-selling current generation games system, but analysts are now starting to look to Nintendo for word on a replacement for the handheld, it would seem.

The analysts at EEDAR expect word on a 'DS2' within the next eight months, if their latest report is to be believed.

"Even though the Nintendo DS posted a record year in 2009, EEDAR expects Nintendo to make an official announcement on the DS2 within the next eight months," offer the experts.

"Nintendo's transition from the GBA to the DS, a year earlier than anticipated, was a brilliant strategy to remove any upper hand the Sony PSP could have by being first to market."

A DS2 might include technology to help combat piracy, a problem for Nintendo in some regions.
