Nintendo DS revolutionizes the way games are played. With dual screens and touch-screen technology, wireless communication and built-in PictoChat software you have the power to draw, write and send messages wirelessly.
Two LCD screens offer one of the most groundbreaking gameplay advances ever developed.
Imagine the possibilities. In a racing game, you might see your own vehicle's perspective on one screen and an overall track view on the other. Soon, games could be created allowing you to play games on one screen while sending text messages on the other.
Each 3-inch screen can reproduce a true 3D view, with impressive 3D renderings that can surpass images displayed on the Nintendo 64.
The lower screen offers something never before provided by any dedicated game device: touch-screen capabilities.
You no longer have to rely on just buttons to move your character or shift perspectives. Navigate menus or access inventory items simply by touching the screen with a stylus or fingertip. The possibilities are limited only by developers' imaginations.
The touch screen features a tougher film cover for durability, and the included stylus is stored in the back of the unit.
A built-in microphone port means that with Nintendo DS, you only need to tell your games what to do.
Developers could create games which identify everything from voice commands to hand-clapping. Imagine moving your characters simply by telling them which way to go! Communication-based games could use the microphone and you can chat with others over a local network, or even the Internet in the future.
The Nintendo DS microphone gives you even more ways to interact with your favorite games.
