    It appears rumours are flying that their will be a redesigned ds coming sometime in 2007, allegedly with a bigger screen
    http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/blog/index.php/2006/12/18/ds-redesign-on-the-way/

    Would you buy one?

    If it isnt any bigger than the ds lite, but has a larger screen, better speakers and a built in fully functional browser, and still costs 100 quid, count me in !.
    (maybe a tilt function too)

    you know what I would like, just the inside surface of my black ds on the outside as well, so the whole thing is smudge free. simple. oh & a built in Web browser, mp3 & 3meg camera with video playback would be nice.

    It all depends, to be honest i'm very happy with the Lite so it would have to go some to be a better design.

    I think my DS Lite is stunning, and it compliments my PSP wonderfully. There's no way i'm splashing more cash on yet another handheld console, and I don't really see how the DS Lite can be improved anyway. Considering how fast they're still flying off the shelves, would a redesign REALLY make sense?

    Very unlikely, I already upgraded once from Chunky to Lite, but this time around I'm more than happy so very unlikely I'd shell out more cash for another upgrade of the same handheld, would rather add a GP2X to my collection:)

    No, I wouldn't, and I'd be cross with Nintendo if they released a redesigned one. It's just a bit cynical really, like when record companies re-release albums with one or two bonus tracks on as "special editions".

    I only got my DS about five, six months ago. I'm not shelling out for a new one already.

    Only if it had a much bigger screen (bigger the better right? :p) but otherwise no I like the current one as it is. Although a few more available colours wouldn't go amiss :D

    Well I've only just bought the DS Lite so I would have to say no - although it does depend how much it differed from the current version! ;)
